How to make a dynamic business portrait?

Group portraits are always appreciated by companies. It’s the way to personalize your communication and get out sanitized visuals and formatted image banks.

Discuss with leaders or communication managers

Discover the company, its history, its activities and its objectives is the preliminary step to the shooting. This helps to understand the message that the company wants to go through the photo.

Shooting

I install my studio (lighting and background) within the company. Each person is taken individually. “Head-to-head” with the camera is not an easy exercise. I then try to create a friendly atmosphere, to build trust while discussing the work of the person, his hobbies, his passions. I like to observe how people speak, memorize gestures.

With or without accessories… Imitating movie posters…

Play with logo letters, share an event

Post-production

All the individual images are cut out, retouched and put together to form the team’s photo.

The advantages of this method of shooting

  • we avoid the cliché of the school photo
  • no one is hidden, everyone has the same importance
  • no unsightly shadow produced by the neighbor, everyone receives the same light
  • if a new collaborator joins the team, we can add it (and conversely)

Your opinion counts! Tell me if what you think of this kind of portraits. Thank you.
