Despite the Covid-19 pandemic, our friends at The Harris Residential Team are growing! They’ve added several new real estate agents and a new chief operating officer to work with team founder Scott Harris. Goooo, HRT! Hence, they wanted a new corporate team portrait.
The dilemma: Can a corporate team portrait be safely photographed?
Given the new faces, they set out to update their website. They wanted headshots (easy peezy) and a corporate team portrait (a little tougher in these socially distanced times). Can Deutsch Photography, they asked, take on that job? And, most important, can we do it safely?
The answer: Yes!
Our answer was a resounding yes.
We came up with a few options, and after a couple of Zoom conferences, everyone agreed with our recommendation. Onward!
And here’s how:
On the day of the shoot, we photographed team members individually in a few different scenes. Everyone we weren’t actively photographing wore a mask, as did we. All of us maintained social distance throughout the shoot.
A couple of more little tricks: we shot from a tripod to avoid any perspective shift, and we relied on studio lights rather than natural lighting so that everyone was lit consistently.
Then we created composite photographs in post-production.
Voilà, picture perfect corporate team portraits (and we got some killer new headshots, too)! We conducted the photo shoot safely indoors and outdoors, and no one had to wear a mask while being photographed. The results speak for themselves, and The Harris Residential Team are very happy. Check out their website for the team portrait and new headshots.
