Top Tips For Outdoor Corporate Headshots from a top San Francisco Corporate Headshot Event and Branding Photographer and Videographer
When you hear the phrase “location, location, location…” what comes to mind? For a top corporate headshot photographer, I can tell you the logistics that come into play when a client requests to shoot outdoors. Topping that list are weather and permits. Even the best laid plans can be foiled by a breeze and living and working in the microclimates that exist in San Francisco add some extra spice to the mix.
Don’t fear. Shooting your corporate headshot outdoors is possible! It is made even better when the client has some flexibility and a contingency plan, both of which I am happy to help guide you with.
“Hey Mother Nature! I’m going to need you to tone down the wind for a minute!”
With seventeen years in the photography business I've faced every weather pattern possible. Come wind, cold, rain or even snow, it was my job to capture a magical moment in some of the toughest conditions. Natural elements are a normal consideration when shooting outdoors and it is amazing what can be achieved.
If an outdoor setting is what best represents your brand or organization, consider several locations, access to these places and whether they are public or private property. Seeking a soft, dusky glow in your portraits? Be mindful that it may take several sessions to capture your entire team as natural light, while beautiful, is fleeting and requires a level of efficiency and expertise.
I am experienced and familiar with many natural settings that are ideal for shooting in and around the San Francisco Bay Area so feel free to leave the location scouting in my hands.
