Los Angeles Area Business Portraits
For companies and people looking for more crafted corporate head shots ,we provide character driven signature business portraiture with more attention paid to branding and marketing needs of the client. Los Angeles businesses seeking to distinguish themselves often want portraits that reflect their corporate branding statements and fall within corporate conventions. Also, marketing and communications directors often want business photography that is consistent with the company's core values so we provide a customized approach to photography to meet those needs.
If you needs are more basic corporate headshots can be simplified to produce a "portraits of record” where the setup is simple and driven by the need to make several clean, well lighted images of several business people. Consequently, we can shoot up to 100 on-location corporate headshots in day and deliver final images within three or four days after final selections are made.
Included with all our corporate headshots is:
- Electronic Delivery
- Light makeup service
- Seamless backgrounds
- On-site review of portraits
- $2,000,000 liability insurance
- Web gallery for review of images
- Retouching: up to 20 minutes per image
- Delivery within 5 working days of final selection
We provide our clients with state-of-the-art photography, skills and resources to deliver individualized portrait work for small leadership groups and collaborate with art directors and communications professionals who want more crafted portraiture for their design projects and branding concepts. We also create portraits of record for large groups where there is a need for efficiency in a short time frame.
Since the Orange County and Los Angeles business community are so diverse and style is so important in distinguishing the corporate image, collaboration with a cultured photographer can help achieve that goal. For instance, an entertainment company or design firm may want editorial look rather than standard corporate head shots (portraits of record) and a law firm or financial institution might want to distinguish their leadership while observing corporate conventions. This is what we do.
For groups under 25 people we do not have a limit on how many images we shoot, since we want our subjects to look and feel comfortable. We find that around 20 minutes per person works works well for corporate headshots. We recommend that folks not wear plaids, tweeds herringbone or tight pinstripes since it can creat moire patterns. Reading glasses can present a problem if they do not have an anti-reflective coating. If necessary, we can optionally remove the reflection in post production.
We can optionally swap out backgrounds from protraits shot on seamless backgrounds. Merely provide us with a suitable background to replace the seamless background and we will send you back your new image. Companies choose this option to extend the usefulness of an image . Alternatively we can photograph scense in your office and use those to swap out the seemlesw background.
Typically our rates are based on a the quantity of people we photograph and the level of production that goes into to business portraits or head shots. However, with large groups we can provide a day rate. We are competitive with photographers of equal merit in the Los Angeles market, and if you would like to see more examples of our work, we can put up a larger photo gallery for review.
On signing an estimate/work agreement we require a deposit 50 percent retainer to secure our commitment, the remainder of which is due within 30 days of completion of the work.
