When photographing busy executives is best to have a game plan that allows you capture a variety of dynamic corporate portraits in a short amount of time. For this photo shoot the lobby of the Rutgers Business School was an ideal location. Gary Cohen, who is donating a million dollars to the school, walked into the lobby and 15 minutes later we were done and he was on his way to his next meeting.
During a recent New Jersey executive portrait and headshot session we found a great background that matched the corporate colors.
We photographed in a few areas of the modern building but the combination of the subject’s expression and colorful background worked perfectly in this photo.
What should I wear to my headshot session? My best answer is that the clothes should be a great accent but not the first thing that you notice in the photos. It’s a really simple idea but it can be applied no matter the person’s age, gender or occupation.
Below is a corporate executive portrait with a few outfit changes. Each set of clothes looks completely natural and appropriate. Easy changes like this are the easiest during a photo shoot. Take off a tie, add a sweater, take off a jacket, etc…. The concept works well for both men and women.

I walked into the New York City Bar Association office for a new corporate headshot project and saw a brochure with an attorney portrait of mine on the cover. It’s always nice to see your portraits used nicely in print.
For this New York City corporate session we had a beautiful office and a relaxed atmosphere that helped create a wonderful series of business portraits and headshots for a financial services firm.

For this executive portrait I was able to take advantage of the setting sun streaming in through the office windows. We had already taken a series of portraits and headshots so it was time to take a few more dramatic photos. For this one a gridded Profoto B1 and the sunset was all we needed.
A great background is so important for a dynamic environmental corporate portrait. The sky was reflecting off the glass exterior of this building in New Brunswick, so that was a perfect spot. I was able to place the executive in the shade so he was very relaxed, resulting in a dynamic executive corporate portrait.
Everything came together so nicely for this executive portrait photo shoot. The conference room was on the right side of the building, the sky was a gorgeous blue and the sun was setting.
For this executive portrait it was important to use the dynamic exterior of the New Jersey building.
While nice soft light from a Profoto strobe lit the executive a gorgeous sunset provided a very pretty background.
For this business headshot project in Monmouth County, New Jersey we wanted to photograph about two dozen executive headshots against a plain background and also an environmental portrait of each person inside the company's facility.
Normally I would bring a background for this type of portrait shoot but the company had a number of walls that were painted in colors that they wanted to use. Then with a little careful planning we were able to find different backgrounds for about two dozen environmental portraits.
I had the opportunity to take an editorial corporate portrait of cyber security expert Rita Gurevich at a fantastic location overlooking the the Hudson River and New York City. It's wonderful to see the portrait used full page in the Stevens Institute alumni magazine.
When photographing a large group you never know when the unexpected might happen. #AwesomeSplit
