This image was shot for Bend Living Magazine for the March 2008 issue, but since I’ve been gone, I didn’t have a chance to show it off yet!
I was recently hired by the lovely and talented Dana Ward of Lime Design to photograph her new professional headshots. In business, professional headshots are very important. They are sometimes the “first impression” when someone is looking for your service or a professional in your field. They can speak volumes about your personality, and even, the quality of your business. Of course, I am a photographer, so I may be biased as to the importance of one’s photography, but personally, I steer clear of any businessman or woman with a pixelated photo, cropped out of last year’s Hawaiian vacation. (facebook excluded)
For Dana’s headshots, we wanted to photograph her in an environmental portrait style, instead of in the studio, to add some depth and connection to her business. We chose The Loft in downtown Bend as a great location for her. She is one of Central Oregon’s premier home stagers, so having an intimate and warm atmosphere went well in defining her as a professional in her field.
What’s your field or area of expertise? Do your headshots help portray your branding and convey the image you want for your business?
Hello all! I’m so excited to announce the launch of my new website! Check it out!
I’ve taken some time (behind-the-scenes), between photoshoots, client meetings, emails, taxes (whaaaat, what’s that?!) blogging, bookkeeping, being a mommy to an adorable 2-year old, moving houses, being a wife, killing it at Crossfit (haha.. that last part is laughable), keeping up on social media (what’s this stories thing I need to do?)… okay, clearly a lot… to find and curate images that speak to my style, breadth of work, expertise, and experience. I’ve narrowed the galleries down extensively, but hope it gives my viewer (you) a quick and beautiful walk through my work. My passion.
Following my last post about Finding the Right Architectural Photographer, this is another great article by the good ole people at AIA (American Institute of Architects) and ASMP (American Society of Media Photographers) discussing expectations with the professional architectural photographer you choose, covering topics like avoiding un-necessary costs and surprises, as well as giving a helpful checklist in making sure all areas of the photo shoot are covered before the photographer even steps foot on the property.
If you are looking to hire a professional architectural photographer, and just don’t know where to start or what to expect, this article is perfect for you!
As always, if you have any questions you would like to further discuss with a professional architectural photographer, please don’t hesitate to email at firstname.lastname@example.org or call at #541-255-5834.
I loved photographing El Jardin, mexican restaurant, for San Diego Magazine. Their food is vibrant and beautiful and most importantly, delicious! The presentation is a photographer’s dream come true… very graphic and full of texture. I decided to play off the bright look and feel of the ambience of the restaurant and food, and photograph some of the dishes on a bright blue background in order to give more pop to the overall image and make the viewer’s eye go straight to the food. Sometimes less is more with backgrounds. For lighting, I decided to do something a bit more harsh to play with the shadow’s and texture a bit more. I never want them to distract away from the food or beverage I photograph, but instead help complete the image.
Thanks for stopping by. Did you catch my last post on spa interior photography?
