Follow-up: Business Portraits for Engineering Firm

Last week we created headshots for an engineering firm with offices in Vienna VA and Baltimore MD. We shot those images on a chroma-green background so that each of the clients offices would look consistent. When presented with the opportunity to help a client we alway try to go the extra mile. Originally several different (unrelated) photography studios from around the country would be working on the project…that was a recipe for inconsistency. Using different cameras, backgrounds, lighting equipment, etc. combined with the logistics associated with different office spaces just doesn’t allow for the level of consistency most clients would like.

We suggested that all of the images be photographed on green-screen, extracted, and placed on the client supplied background.

The original portraits were created in color and photographed on a chroma-green background. We plan on extracting each subject and placing them in a PSD background supplied by the client.

We’re 11 hours into our business day sitting at Chicago’s O’Hara Airport when I find out  that my flight back to Washington DC was delayed…so what better to do than edit the images from our shoot earlier today.

Our client  today was a Chicago based real estate development firm. A few weeks ago we worked with their Washington DC office and this week we flew to Chicago to photograph 25 of their midwest based executives. I’ll admit that the highlight was talking business the Chairman and CEO…a man with 30+ years experience and that has developed over $2 BILLION of urban mixed-use projects. Whenever I have the opportunity I try to get a few minutes of his/her ear to discuss business. I definitely walked away with 2-3 tidbits of information that will help me grow as a leader and business owner.

The image on the right has a ghost (i.e. my First Assistant) in the background of what I think is a fantastic image. Fortunately we had 10-12 other great frames that the client loved as well.

Did you know that it only takes 15 minutes to update your corporate headshot with a new outstanding business portrait?

Portrait Photographer in DC works with Physicians at Sibley Memorial Hospital

We recently had the chance to create new business portraits for the anesthesiology department at Sibley Memorial Hospital in Washington DC. Working with Physicians can be a challenge if you’re not experienced. In fact, one of the reasons the client selected us was because we didn’t complain about the 6:30 am start times. That was fine for us…it allowed us to beat the rush hour traffic!

We had a super busy December where we created corporate headshots for clients in Boston, Philadelphia, Atlanta, San Diego, New Jersey and Washington DC. During our travels one of the airlines that shall remain nameless (cough cough US Airways) decided to BREAK a wheel off my Think Tank Airport Security.

Sheared. Completely. OFF THE AXLE.  

Then they had the nerve to tell me that their damage policy doesn’t cover bags with wheels (pretty much any bag made in the last 20 years). Really? Really US Airways?

In steps the team at Think Tank Photo. First of all, they sent me a set of wheels and the tools to replace the wheels. At no cost. The tools arrived a few days after my email with Doug B. In the mean-time I had transferred my location lighting kit to my Think Tank Logistics Manager “rolling studio” bag. It’s HUGE and holds a TON of gear so I typically only use it when I’m traveling by car to multi-day shoots since it’s a tad too heavy for my day-to-day assignments where I’m in and out of various offices in Washington DC.

When I finally had time to put on the new wheel it wouldn’t fit. What the heck?!?!?!?!  What’s going on here??? I shot a picture with iPhone and sent it over to Think Tank and here was the response:

“Based on the photo you provided, the roller will have to be returned to us for repair. We will have to replace your axle with a new one and this will require special tools to do so. Please return your roller to the following address and complete the attached warranty return from as well with your roller.”

Fast forward a few days…I ship the bag to California where it arrived on 2/26 at 9:37am. At 11:56am I received another FedEx confirmation that my bag was being shipped back to me!  That’s only 2 hours 19 minutes folks!!! They turned around the repair in 2 hours.

No Fuss. No Muss. Nothing. None of that. They even picked up the return shipping charge. It wasn’t even their fault!!!

So…to Deanne Fitzmaurice and Kurt Rogers, and product designers Doug Murdoch and Mike Sturm and the rest of the think Tank family….THANK YOU VERY MUCH. Even before this you had me on board…I’m already heavily invested in your products (Shape Shifter,  Artificial Intelligence,several Lens Changers, Pixel Pocket Rockets, and Cable Management pouches   …but I am impressed that you CONTINUE to earn my business day after day after day.

Think Tank products are TOP NOTCH and Think Tank Customer Service is truly the best in ANY business.

We recently had the opportunity to create a business portrait for a new Physician at  Children’s National Medical Center in Washington DC. We’ve worked with numerous physicians and practice groups in the Washington DC area and we have mastered the challenges that come from working with their demanding schedules. Most of the sessions for creating portraits for our Washington DC medical professionals are photographed EARLY (before-8am); we’ve arrived at hospitals as early as 5:30am to photograph groups or 30 or more. The great thing is that we have minimal impact on their busy schedule.

You can view our details and pricing for studio photography sessions or for location portrait sessions in the Washington DC area and give us a call at 202.368.1388 if you have any questions.
