Financial Company Branding Photoshoot

I photographed for Felix and Steve in the past. Maybe around 5 years ago they were working just the two of them as financial planners. They needed headshots for their business and I was happy to shoot for them. Felix also needed a photographer for his wedding, and I was more than happy to shoot his wedding. Relationships are important because people remember that you did a good job or you made them feel comfortable in front of the camera. There are many reasons to why they will rehire you for something.

Fast forward a few more years and now Felix and Steve have added 3 more people and they are renting in a gorgeous building in South Norwalk. I am so happy that they hired me to photograph the new team. They are called Guidelight Financial and they are fun to work with.

Guidelight’s office is located at 50 Washington Street

It’s Electric

I shot these electrical towers a few weeks ago in Chappaqua New York. They were really amazing and the weather was perfect for the flight. I am photographing for an energy company and I thought these might be a perfect fit for their annual report. Will let you know….

love the clouds and foliage in these images
I am a big fan of lines and texture
The homes gives this a human element
totally electric
I really enjoy this drone.

The drone I am using is the Mavic air 2 which is the perfect compliment to my work. It is smallenough to fit in my bag, really easy to fly and the image quality is fantastic.

On a lighter note….. here are 13 creative exercises to help you with your photography. We all hit the wall some times but these will help you get past the wall. Good luck.

Architect Branding Photography

Megan is the owner of MLR properties. A design and construction company based in Fairfield County. Branding photography is no longer just a bunch of headshots. Now you have to tell a story behind the images. Locations help a great deal. An architect at their build, a swimmer at the pool or a landscaper in the garden. Half the fun of photographing a subject is coming up with the type of look or pose that the client will look natural and approachable.

awesome toy store

Here is a perfect example of branding photography. I photographed The Awesome Toy Store in Westport for Westport Lifestyle Magazine. The clients were so happy that they purchased the images from me and are using them for their website and marketing campaign.One of the most important things a photographer has to do on a shoot is make the client feel comfortable so that you can get images that look natural and unforced.

My kids love this place and shop here often.
showing lots of product
never ending puzzles
A coffee bar too!!
I could not fit in these, but I tried.
You can have fun in a toy store.

Branding photography is a must when you need content for your website and marketing. These images could and will be used for social media. It is always a win win to do this for your business.

Abstract artist

David called me to photograph him for his website. He was planning to upgrade his site and also wanted me to photograph his pieces of art so he could sell them online. We picked a nice day because many of his pieces are large and we wanted to get the images taken outside. To have images for social media I now take many more images. But I still always want to tell a story.

I try to show as many different “looks” as I can to make the website look interesting.

For websites or for branding photography, I like to show the viewer what a typical day might be, tell the story.

David is a Westport artist and lives very close to me. I run or bike by his studio almost every day. He sometimes works outside or on the porch and I think his work is amazing!

This is my favorite shot of him. It happened to be the last picture too! See more of his work by clicking here.
