Dr. Maureen Mcintosh-Alberts is an executive personal coach. From her office, she manages a team that helps leaders attain higher levels for their organizations. Her home is her office, library, and meeting space for group work. At this time, I came to photograph her in the spaces where she does her work. For branding shoots, it is important to illustrate where people get inspiration, and do their best work.
Inside her home, Dr. Maureen has created a space for deep thinking and analysis. With lots of colors, and textures, it also gives a creative feeling. This is an area where clients are looking to find novel answers, so this environment fosters that. With a couple of flashes, I was able to light her and her rooms nicely.
In her library, she had an incredible collection of books. Moreover, she had an impressive collection of large printed photographs that her husband created. Without a doubt, this was my favorite are for photos. She is an academic, and these books contributed to where she and her business is today. It was a perfect setting to illustrate her growing brand!
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.
This post is about more sessions in the studio for 2019 3rd Quarter Headshots. Firstly in this set, Kelli recently completed her Ph.D. Correspondingly, she is looking to start a new teaching position. Overall, I am impressed with the dedication and work ethic for those that can complete such lofty academic goals! I hope that these new headshots help convey her new position as she starts her next opportunity.
Brandon is another business owner that I met networking in northern Virginia. He has great stories about growing up as a standout basketball player, and playing in the NCAA tournament! Since then he has worked many positions in the roofing and siding industry. In fact, he learned so much from his experience that he is now starting his own company! Hopefully these will help him with a successful launch.
Finally, I need to put these photos of Laurie from a previous studio session. At this time, she was looking for images that she could use for her business coaching website. Afterwards, she asked if these could be used for her upcoming book jackets. Of course, I said it would great to use for those! This is the first time my images were used for hard cover publication. I felt honored that she chose to use them this way!
