It was a busy weekend and in the midst of covering a four day poker tournament, I was also hired to shoot a corporate portrait across town. With a bit of luck (and despite Montreal’s notorious Mercier bridge traffic which extended all the way into downtown) I made it to my corporate portrait assignment on time. As in many instances for in-office corporate portraits, my client was fairly pressed for time and really had only a few minutes to spare with me. I put up a simple seamless grey backdrop, crammed in my lights on one side of a large immoveable board room table and click click click, we were done. The whole shoot from set up to goodbye took under 45 minutes and we got exactly the shot we needed. If you are thinking of having your own portrait done in your office (time to update that LinkedIn profile picture maybe?) keep in mind you can have your shot done in less time than you might normally take to eat a quick lunch.
