At first, the thought of doing corporate head-shots does not evoke a whole lot of creativity. For the most part they are pretty standard portraits used for annual reports and company profiles. This does not mean that you shouldn’t leave enough room for spontaneity and some fun.
A regular client of mine, the super hip Palo Alto based fashion retailer Moxsie.com needed updated head-shots of their five department heads and only had an hour to shoot them. Everybody needed one formal and one not so formal shot and it was Jon’s, Moxsie’s CEO idea to grab some props & inventory to incorporate into the images. This idea was so refreshing has it added some fun and personality to both the shoot and the final images.
