Those candid shots you see in annual reports and marketing materials? 99.9% of the time they’re posed, and most are simply not believable. It’s a challenge, to be sure — but I have a few […]

I also did headshots for this executive coaching firm on Wall Street, but spent the bulk of day’s shoot on photos for online and offline marketing.  Professional, upbeat, relaxed — clearly these people enjoy their […]
