I usually try not to paint things with too broad a brush, but this time I’m going to go out on a limb and say that I think everyone wants to get back to normal. We’ve been confined too long, dissociated from our friends and coworkers for what seems a lifetime, and really just want to go back to the way things were.
The good news is that Michigan is going to start opening up soon, which means Blue Sky Photography can create executive portraits and headshots for our clients once more. With that said, things are going to be different though. Social distancing is still going to be our top priority and we want to assure all those who are in need of quality photography, that we will be doing our part to ensure your safety during your portrait sessions. We hope to hear from you once you feel comfortable in this new environment. Until then, stay safe!
Along with other types of commercial photography that I’m hired for, I photograph a tremendous amount of executive portraits, including this recent one of a company’s CEO. This particular project had me traveling to their headquarters to photograph not only the CEO but all of their upper management staff. This seems to be a common practice in the metro Detroit corporate arena, as I receive headshot bookings frequently, both for photo sessions in our Troy studio as well as the convenience of having me set up shop at corporate facilities. As in this case as well as many others, clients will add retouching to the scope of work.
I’ve been photographing executive portraits for quite a number of years at my Troy, Michigan studio, as well as on-site at client’s facilities. The deciding factor as to where to shoot usually is determined by how many subjects need headshots for their business. Typically if there is only one or two from a company, its more economical to come to my studio. Situations where a business needs a half-dozen or more of their executives photographed, it is much more advantageous for me to come to them.
This woman executive I photographed (shown above) came to my studio on short notice. She works for a New York IT consulting firm, but is based out of the Detroit area. As is often the case, she was to have a press release published regarding her work and needed a professional photographer to capture her portrait. Although I’m a bit biased towards having a corporate portrait done, I believe it is money well spent.
