I'll be honest, when I first started shooting corporate headshots, I wasn't sure I'd actually enjoy it! I have friends and family who work for companies of all sizes, but let's face it -- I started my own business for a reason! I was worried when I started doing corporate photography that it would be, well, boring.
Fortunately, living and working as a photographer in San Francisco means that the companies I do corporate shoots for are anything but boring! From Anki Drive to the designer of Beats headphones, I've been pleasantly surprised and frankly amazed at the depth of creativity in this city. So you can imagine my excitement at the chance to do a shoot with Alexia Tsotsis, co-editor of Tech Crunch, the weblog dedicated to, in their words: "obsessively profiling and reviewing new Internet products and companies."
My first impression of Alexia was that she was young to be at the helm of such a widely-read and respected publication, but she was so warm and open, and completely invested in making sure we got the shots we needed, that I soon understood just how she came to be where she was.
Our shoot was for a piece in SOMA magazine, and Alexia was really open to being photographed for as long as we needed to make sure we got enough photos for the article. This was just after Tech Crunch's annual Crunchies Awards (and they had just been mentioned on the show Silicon Valley) so Alexia was very excited to chat about this! Finding something my client is really excited about helps me keep them more at ease during our shoot, and that definitely helped us get the fantastic photos we did with Alexia.
