Corporate headshots can be more than just…

National training meetings present an opportunity to update photos for employees based in locations all over the world.  Recently I was invited to shoot an NTM at the spacious and beautifully appointed J. W. Marriott resort hotel just north east of San Antonio.  The ballrooms were separated by a spacious open area providing a rare opportunity to construct a full studio setting with seamless background for standing head to toe portraits or close in head shots.  White is not my favorite but at the request of the company I lit the set to give it a decent high key environment.

It didn’t take long for the attendees to loosen up and even get into the session resulting in some fun shots.  I had one problem with “piling on.”  More people would join in on the shot and I did not set up for more than 2 or three.  The second day I brought additional lighting and set up next to this set up taking advantage of the couch and chairs for larger groups.
