Shooting corporate headshots for hot start ups here in San Francisco is always fun and challenging, with a seemingly endless supply of exciting, innovative young professionals who've devoted their careers to changing how we interact, connect, and do business today. These shoots are not without their challenges, however, as often the folks who run these companies are incredibly busy. The same is certainly true for the venture capitalists who find these young start ups and help bring their vision to life.
This was definitely the case with Danny Rimer, who in addition to being a partner at Index Ventures, is also on the boards of more than 10 start ups! So a pretty busy guy! And one who, like many clients I work with, hated having his photo taken. While impossibly busy and not jazzed about being photographed might seem like insurmountable obstacles, I really enjoyed the challenge of getting some great, natural shots of Danny.
We did an environmental style portrait where he was meant to look like we has engaged in conversation. This, combined with some silly jokes courtesy of yours truly, helped Danny feel comfortable in front of the camera and make sure we got natural-looking shots. This shoot did not come without it’s technical difficulties, however! The power outlets in the room we chose to shoot in did not work, so we had to do some on-the-fly problem solving to get things up and running better than before we had arrived. Fast thinking under high stress is something I excel at so the issue was resolved in moments.
In the end, some problem solving and corny jokes did the trick and we were still able to create some amazing photos for Danny.
