Corporate Portraits for CNBC Asia anchors in Hong Kong
 

I remember leaving Squawk Box playing on the tv of whichever work travel hotel room I would find myself brushing my teeth in during my banking days...amazing experience to visit and photograph on the set of CNBC in Hong Kong.

Colourful headshots

I've always loved the artistic freedom that using color allows in imagery - growing up I watched a lot of Saturday Night Live and I loved the vivid portraits of portrait photographer Mary Ellen Matthews that would pop up in between commercials. I've been experimenting with color-grading my headshots. I think it adds a bit of a cinematic feel - here are a few of my favs.

How to shoot natural headshots

One of the questions that I get asked most often as a photographer is “how do you get your headshots to look natural?” And my approach is the same every time - I have a good conversation.

I listened to a recent TED talk, and it reminded me of all the great things that come from a really good conversation - things like energy, inspiration, engagement and connection - all of which look great on camera. So I approach every portrait and corporate headshot session with the same curiosity and honesty as I would any other conversation. It is one of the best parts about being a headshot photographer in a city as diverse as Hong Kong - I get to meet someone new almost everyday, and a great conversation to go along with it.

Corporate Headshots at Business Conference in Hong Kong

Finding the time for a much needed corporate headshot session is one of the biggest challenges our clients face - but one company found a perfect solution by having us set up a small photography studio during their multiple-day business conference in Hong Kong. Executives around the region convened for workshops, discussions and networking with industry colleagues. These corporate headshots were taken at a function room in between the conference sessions. Our photography equipment setup allowed us to shoot quickly, select images on a laptop immediately while maintaining a consistent look across all the headshots.

Last month we went on-location to Facebook to photograph portraits in their Hong Kong office. We were hired out of the US where this project was being coordinated - with the goal to show both the "togetherness" and individuality of cultures across the companies staff globally.

2015 is flying by fast, and I've finally had a chance to look back at some of the executives and entrepreneurs that have come by our Central studio for their profile photos. I always enjoy thinking back to some of the interesting chats I was able to have during these sessions - here are some of my favorite portraits from the first half of the year.

Corporate headshot photography for company website
 

Corporate portrait photography for an electronics design company based in Hong Kong. The headshots were used for their website and corporate marketing materials. I love photographing for this type of look - slightly stylized lighting with a touch of individual personality with each portrait.
