SmithGroup JJR is one of the largest architecture firms in the United States. They needed architect portraits. Michelle Martin is in charge of Strategic Business Development and Communications for their San Francisco, CA office. Michelle wanted headshots and portraits for the new employees that have recently joined the growing firm as well as select partners. It was important to have consistent crops and looks in the photos so that as they added future employees there was a continuity.
We photographed thirty-five team members over two days in two different weeks. This made it convenient for people to find a time to have their photograph taken. Employees signed up online at a time that was most convenient for them. We communicated with each person telling them what to bring and what to wear. Everyone arrived early for makeup and wardrobe consultation.
Michelle wanted three-quarter length portraits in various natural looking positions. We coached people how to hold their hands and vary their expressions.
After the shoot, each person chose their photos from online proofs. Michelle approved all selections to be sure that we had a consistent group of photos. We retouched the photos and gave SmithGroup the full crop as well as a tighter square crop for LinkedIn profiles.
We asked Michelle what she liked about the SRK Headshot Day process. She said, “Scott R. Kline and the entire team are talented, easy to work with, and efficient. From the planning to the final post-production, they provided stellar service and high-quality headshots for our new team members and a few select principals. Patricia’s handling of all the logistics before the shoot saved me time and money. When in her capable hands, the process was so smooth for me and for each person involved. Scott listened and tailored his approach to our photography needs. And, the day of the shoot was a breeze. To top it all off, everyone loved their new headshot. If you are in need of natural yet polished headshots and appreciate someone else leading the logistical efforts, I highly recommend Scott R Kline Photography.”
