On-Location Executive Portraits
For larger groups, it makes more sense for us to come to you. Our prompt and professional photographers arrive at your office an hour before the executive photo session begins. During this time, we bring in and set up our equipment in a conference room or another preferred location within your office building.
Over the past 15 years, we have perfected our executive portrait sessions. Our goal is to provide exceptional portraits with convenience for valued clients in all professions and walks of life.
Instead of interrupting your busy workday, our staff travels and sets up a temporary studio at your office, business location, or other arranged venue instead of our photo studio. On-location headshots help tell your brand story to the world.
We understand that not everyone feels naturally relaxed and comfortable in front of the camera. Our skilled and patient photographers work with each client to put them at ease. Further, we use the most favorable camera angles and lighting to bring out our client's best features.
