Environmental portraits are created on location at your place of business or in another environment that communicates something about who you are. These portraits are a natural and creative way to show viewers who you are, what you do, and where you do it.
In the corporate world this type of portrait is a great marketing tool that subtly reinforces your company’s vision, mission and culture. The faces clients and potential clients see, and the information they find on your website and print materials speak volumes about your business. They send a message about your company and the level of professionalism of the individuals representing it. Executives, doctors, educators, musicians, attorneys, engineers, artists and other professionals who are photographed in their environment are able to convey knowledge, proficiency and accessibility.
As an environmental portrait photographer I find these types of portraits both exciting and challenging to create. It is your choice where you would like your portrait taken but I am happy to visit your business prior to the photo shoot to determine the best location/locations in which to photograph an individual or staff of individuals. I look for natural settings, such as an office, lobby, or specialty area and for props or visual elements that convey information about the individual while keeping the focus on that individual.
