With the beautiful spring weather, its a great time to update your Linked-In or Google+ profile with an updated business portrait. It seems that more and more, people want to have a natural feel to their headshots and shoot them outdoors.
The best light is always when the sun is close to setting, which gives a more golden hue to the skin tone, as evidenced in this shot. Another trick is to shoot with a telephoto lens which blurs the background and focuses attention on the subject.

The trees are blooming, love is in the air and NY City corporate event planners are finalizing details for their spring events. As an event photographer in NY City, I never forget the basics of my journalistic training when covering a story: tell the who, what, why, where and when
For every assignment shooting business party, non-profit gala, meeting and reception photography, here are the shots I always get to tell the story of the event: before the events starts we cover the empty room showing the design, decor and food. During the party we are sure to get photos of senior management, board members and a variety of candid photos. If there is a program of course the speakers are covered as well as overall shots showing the guests, room and speaker.
Event photos are often delivered quickly for social media and press. With a little planning, your special event photographer should be able to deliver excellent and memorable event photography!
Because NY City is home to so many international businesses, corporate financial conferences & meetings are held here daily. Usually the services of a professional photographer experienced in conference & meeting photography is hired. As a NYC photojournalist, I enjoy this type of special event photography because the photo coverage is journalistic and unposed.
First I’ll shoot wide shots of the room to document the setting. Then cover a variety of wide angle shots of the panels, as well as close-ups of the individual speakers. Often there is a networking lunch or break-out sessions on specific topics, which is a great time for casual photos that often end up in social media.
All corporate special events are a great networking opportunity for participants, often afford an expense-paid trip to New York City, and are a win-win for all participants who seek to learn more and become experts in their fields.
