This photo was taken in NY City at a non-profit event celebrating outstanding scholarship students. The speakers inspired the audience with incredible stories of hard work and dues paid.
There are so so many wonderful non-profits that celebrate their accomplishments and its always a honor for me as a special event photographer in NYC to document these events for publication and social media.
More and more, clients are having me shoot headshots for Linked-In and social media. While a flattering and updated corporate portrait is so important for everyone, its even more so for social media sites.
At a recent webinar on Linked-In, I learned how easy it is to find new professional contacts. Linked-In has filtering tools to refine your searches, and you can easily find friends of friends who can help you with your job search, mentoring opportunities or peer networking.
But as the old saying goes, you can never make a second first impression. Which is why its so important to have a NYC professional photographer take updated photos of your professional staff so everyone has a flattering professional headshot portrait.
As NY City real estate continues to expand and grow into the sky, one thing I always enjoy thinking about is that behind every window in every building old or new… there are people living or working. There must be many millions of windows in NYC buildings, maybe even a billion! And the millions of people behind these windows have their own unique view of our wonderful city.
So when I am on assignment as a professional photographer, whether it be as a portrait photographer or as a meeting or event photographer, I always enjoying seeing the location’s view of the New York City skyline, and trying to incorporate these views into the photos.
This business portrait was taken high atop Hearst’s beautiful and amazing building on West 57th Street. The views northward of Central Park served as a perfect background for this magazine assignment. While it was a bit tricky to light the room and not get reflections on the glass, it served as a perfect setting for this executive’s photo, and I was very grateful for his hospitality and kindness throughout the shoot.

Business portraits can be done in a number of creative ways, if a standard headshot seems too traditional for you. Its fun and easy to get more creative, by doing a journalistic executive portrait. This approach involves photographing the subject while he or she is actually working and taking meetings, like the shot in this post.
Shooting editorial-style portraits is a great way to go for many reasons. First, you’ll have a wide variety of moments to choose from. Second, you’ll have a selection of stock photos that you can use in the future for brochures and advertising campaigns. And third, you can relax and be yourself if you’re not so comfortable posing in front of the camera.
To make this type of corporate photo work best, its important to pose the shot in a simple corporate environment that will convey confidence, good energy and professionalism.
