The Life of a Portrait Photographer

It’s the second week of December and we’re pushing towards the end of what has been a VERY busy year for our portrait studio. In April-June, we worked with a New York based client to create business portraits for 2000 3000 medical professionals. We spent 10 weeks in and out of 48 different offices throughout Manhattan, Staten Island, Long Island and Brooklyn. Honestly, it was a lot of fun.

The work didn’t let up as we did MAJOR assignments for PricewaterhouseCoopers (PwC), Ernst & Young, Deloitte, Philips, Zurich, Wells Fargo, Comcast, Bank of America, and Baker Donelson (to name a few).

We completed portrait assignments in Atlanta, Baltimore, Boston, Charlotte, Chicago, Denver, Dallas, Los Angeles, Nashville, New York, Philadelphia, San Antonio, San Diego, and Washington DC.

This week we’ll spend 2 days creating environmental portraits for a large trade association in Washington DC, work with a client in our Baltimore studio, create some collateral marketing imagery for one of our law firm clients that is moving into a new office, and create 14 new portraits and a 6 minute video for one of our long-time Boston based clients.

Friday we’ll unpack, recharge batteries, clean gear and repack to fire back up next week when were back in Baltimore to work with an award winning real-estate client on Monday as well as working with our group of medical professionals in NYC. It’s going to be a long, but productive day.

Tuesday (week of 12/15) we start the final week of shooting for one of our new law-firm clients, which will lead us right up to December 24th. We’ll take a few days off for the Christmas Holiday but jump right back in on 12/29 with our medical professionals.

This is the way our entire 2014 has gone. We’re not complaining…in fact, we’re looking forward to an even busier 2015!

We recently created these images for the DC office of a New York based Asset Management Firm. The great thing about this client was their preparedness and efficiency. The gave us access to an entire floor and we could set-up our background and lights anywhere we needed.

A gray background goes well with both bright colors and pastels, and like white it allows for quite a bit of flexibility with the lighting. Images can be framed in what looks like a lighter gray in order to draw the viewer’s eye to the center of the image and give your subject the attention it deserves.

We understand that coordinating a photo session for a group of 5-500 can be challenging, and soliciting proposals from several photographers can be very time consuming on your part.  Give us a call at 888.984.4777  to hear how we can help you make the process as seamless and enjoyable as possible! We’ve worked small and large firms but regardless of the size we bring a high level of organization, professionalism, and the ability to make outstanding images that your people will LOVE.

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.
