Here are a few selects from an executive portrait session I photographed last week. My assignment was to create a selection of portraits of a new attorney joining a prominent Denver law firm. The photos are for the firm's website. The idea was to create professional portraits that will make a professional and welcoming statement to potential new clients.
These photos are, for all intents & purposes, headshots. As such, this offers good fodder for my position that executive headshots do NOT need to be taken in a studio. These classically-lit photos were made out on the balconies at the law firm's offices.
Not only are on-location portraits convenient for the attorneys I've photographed here, but it shows that location portraits can be every bit as professional looking as portraits made in a studio. In fact, it's my position that these unique portraits have an inherent advantage over every other headshot you've ever seen...by standing apart from the plethora of other executive headshot.
In today's increasingly competitive business environment, who's not looking for a way to separate themselves from the crowd?!
