Last week I had the opportunity to create headshots for Chris, a business owner in Vancouver, Washington.
Chris is a corporate storyteller. He creates amazing things by mixing up his aesthetic and technical skills. Like most small business owners, Chris needs photos that he can use to represent himself in various forms of marketing: his website, print materials, and online social networks.
Sometimes I create images with a solid studio backdrop, but we decided to go outdoors where we might find some interesting backgrounds. The black & white shot was created against the backdrop of a mural, and the brickwork on the Esther Short Park clock tower provided a good background for the photo below.
