Index Ventures Environmental Headshots - venture capital photography san francisco
When Index Ventures approached me to created headshots for their venture capital, I jumped at the opportunity to create a custom look just for them. If you know what a venture capital company is you know that Index Ventures is big time. Like for real big time so much so that they're referenced in the hit HBO tv show Silicon Valley as the litmus for Venture Capital. They represent companies such as ASOS, Blue Bottle Coffee, Zendesk, Skype, and Squarespace.
So needless to say it was really important to get it right. They wanted to have a light, friendly, approachable look. Not stuffy, not corporate, not buttoned up at all. We had several chats about the direction to go and decided that photographing in their offices would capture them at work but also show them how they were. Looking directly at camera would break the fourth wall and they wanted to keep the feel of casual. Of course like every executive I photograph there is a very small window to take photos. When I was at their offices I had a few short minutes to set up lighting at their offices, take their photo then I had to clear out and wait for the next executive to be ready to be photographed. It was definitely very exciting to be ready to just jump right in, but it also meant that I had to be on my game as there was natural light, and artificial light that needed to be balanced as well as ensuring my subjects were at ease.
Index Ventures were incredibly happy with the result and have used the images for years all over their site and blog.
