This executive portrait photography assignment was great fun for me. Shot on the floor of a leading tech company, I used a combination of professional umbrella lighting and available light. Once the photos were edited and optimized, they were forwarded to the alumni magazine for which they were commissioned.

As a corporate portrait photographer here in NY City, assignments often cover alumni special events, university receptions and photos like this for alumni magazines.

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.
