Playful Portraits

Playful Portraits

Not all corporate portraits have to be cookie-cutter just-add-barcode-on-forehead head and shoulders shots. Once and a while it can be fun and fruitful to play around with relevant props and even (dare we) use a little humour and have fun with the shot.

I was recently hired by Queens School of Business to shoot a portrait of a senior VP at Monster and, while I was asked to provide straightforward corporate shots, was also given the leeway to shoot a few playful shots with my subject. Of course, a client needs to have the right attitude, be flexible and willing to play ball, but if they are, the in-office corporate portrait photoshoot can be effective and fun. Here are few takes from the shoot at Monster Canada’s offices in downtown Montreal.
