Today, I wanted to look back at some 2019 Business Portraits as we start a new year. In the first place, I have Marty who owns a flooring installation company. Marty has a great personality who thinks out of the box and uses his creative mind to solve problems especially when working in client’s homes. With this in mind, I wanted to try something off the wall after getting the standard headshots.
This next set is from a shoot with Noel and his team from N &D Landscaping. On this occasion, they were on a job site taking down a series of tall trees. For his website and social media, these photos of rigging to secure falling limbs, and men standing high in the air will make an impact! Moreover, it will give their customers an idea of the kind of work that it takes to remove trees in neighborhoods.
Finally, I have some images from a session with Sherrita in Georgetown. Being that I see her at all the TEDx Tysons events, I know she is a talented wordsmith. Not only does she help coach speakers, but she is an author and entrepreneur in her own right. There is nothing like a bright morning in Georgtown Waterfront park for beautiful outside portraits.
With the start of another year, I wanted to look back at the 2019 4th Quarter Media at Tysons Corner Center. Prior to the holiday shopping season, the traffic through the mall was the highest. In this case, it was easy to get photos of the media along with a lot of people in the frame.
In these photo, there was an ad pasted onto the Concourse entrance from the Plaza. Presently this is the nicest branding for the mall of all their entrances. With the large glass wall as a backdrop, this is a great showcase to place an ad especially with the foot traffic from the Metro, hotel, and restaurants into the mall.
The BrandBox area also had some changes for the holidays. While they had some new stores that also needed photos, the BrandBox Marketplace was also opened highlighting many assorted brands in one location. Again the flexibility of these spaces was on display as they quickly opened these spaces in time for holiday shoppers.
Earlier this month, I photographed the 2019 Athleta Holiday Yoga event at Tysons Corner Center. Since we are in the middle of the Christmas holiday season, it is never too early to start healthy habits for the new year. At first, I did not want to make any noise as the event started. The yoga stretches were very calming with a DJ playing some soothing background music.
Afterwards, the participants were able to make their own smoothies. Wheely Good Smoothies had two bikes setup that let you mix your treat using your own leg power! While these were normal stationary bikes, they modified a mixer to be powered by the bike chain as a rider pedaled. This made for some surprisingly fun photos, and tasty smoothies!
