Business Portraits used in Washington DC Business Journal

Business Portraits for Washington DC People on the Move

Our clients use the professional photos we create for many different reasons. In addition to using them for biographical profile photos on corporate websites and social media, annual report photography, and we frequently see them used in the Washington Business Journal. Yesterday I spotted an image we created for one of our Washington DC commercial real estate clients as it was used in the “People on the Move” section.

Congratulations Gene! You’ll do a great job on the Board of Directors! Other usage for business portraits:


Last fall we attended a lunch event that was hosted by the Washington Business Journal. It was nice to see dozens of our business headshots used in their presentation when they spoke about their “People on the Move” section.

Update your Company Headshots

As the end of the summer draws near we have been swamped as we work with Washington DC companies that are busy updating their corporate image. The great thing is that many of these clients have worked with us in the past and are coming back again and again as they hire new employees or as they update their corporate website.

Headshots in Bethesda. Headshots in McLean. Headshots in Tyson’s Corner. Headshots in Arlington. Headshots in Alexandria. Headshots in Washington DC.

August saw us working with Merrill Lynch, Burson-Marsteller, Great American Group, WellsFargo (2x), DiPietro PLLC, Energy Capital Partners, L Discovery, CRESA and dozens of other individuals that were photographed in our Washington DC studio.

We’ve taken the last few weeks to refine our workflow as we made the transition to shooting MFD (Medium Format Digital) by leaving Nikon behind and switching to PhaseOne system. And OH-WHAT-A-CAMERA-IT-IS!!! With our Leaf Aptus-II 6 28 MP camera backs and Capture One workflow software representing the best of what digital photography has to offer. Extraordinary capture becomes natural through ease of use and direct control.

We also made the switch from using Adobe Photoshop to using Capture One Pro 7. It’s the best and most robust piece of software that I have EVER worked with.

Capture One Pro 7 is the professional choice in imaging software

On assignments we use our iPad and iPhone to wirelessly view, zoom and pan high-res DSLR and medium-format RAW images while we shoot and get instant feedback from clients.

Last week we were in New York creating environmental portraits for a group of professionals from Berkeley Point Capital. We arrived a day early to scout the location and setup gear (Elinchrom Quadra Rangers  with Photek Softlighter II’s) for the next morning. With the first session at 8:00 am it was important to make sure we had our lighting equipment charged, prepped and ready to go since there was very little time between each session. In addition to my primary shooting set-up I also had my backup gear ready to go. Preparation. Preparation. PREPARATION. We subscribe to two primary rules of great environmental portraiture

1. “Half of all location photography is moving furniture.”

2. “‘Available light’ means ANY light that’s available.

The location was at the Four Seasons (Midtown East) with awesome views of Central Park. We also needed to match images that we created a few month prior at the clients Bethesda, MD headquarters so that added to the complexity of the assignment.  We shot 20-30 frame per person in a variety of poses and the client is selecting 3 finals for each of the 15 executives. We deliver those files in both color and black & white. We deliver the files using the  Rouse Photography Group  Photoshelter archive  which allows for 24/7/365 client access and bulletproof backup.
