Not all executive portrait shoots are the “head and shoulder” variety. I was hired by the pharmaceutical firm McKesson to photograph a conference in downtown Detroit. I did have the opportunity to photograph several members’ portraits in a private room setting with strobe lighting and seamless backdrop. But along with the traditional executive portrait assignment, I was asked to photograph the conference event from a candid perspective.
I enjoyed the diversity that the project allowed. Executives come in all shapes and sizes, and photography can and should be as diverse as the subjects that I’m hired to portray.
