Stephanie Brennan - magazine cover and feature photos

Stephanie Brennan is only 24 but she has had her fair share of media attention. Now she has been invited to be featured as a world class entrepreneur on the cover of World Class Magazine. ‪#‎worldclass‬ ‪#‎entrepreneur‬
Given such a great opportunity for exposure it was really important to get a set of professional photos together.  The key was to get a variety looks to reflect her personality but also to create variety for the magazine and still allow the magazine to select a hero shot for the cover with enough room for copy etc.

Stephanie took advantage of our "Executive Woman Package" which included professional hair and makeup and the 5 retouched images.

And below you can see the original images again as I supplied them to the client before they were cropped and edited for the magazine.

A quick behind the scenes of how we set up and lit the images on the dark background. Handpainted backdrop with a graduated center, striplight on the left as the main light and a larger softbox on the right bouncing in a large white wall just to create a soft fill on the right.  Not the traditional setup but it created exactly the look I was after.

Surry Hills creative corporate portrait shoot - Stace & Co

I had the pleasure to photograph Vanja from Stace & Co at this Surry Hills studio.

Vanja knew exactly the look she was after. Her main brief was not to make her look like a lawyer or real estate agent but instead she wanted the image to reflect her strong confident and colourful spirit.

 Stace + Co. We are a Sydney design and marketing studio helping businesses and brands get the most out of their marketing efforts.

Vanja hired a studio space in Surry Hills which has a bright and colourful look. This was then matched by Vanja's outfits. 

Of course it's her smile and personality which will ultimately win over her customers.

It's always nice to see how the images are used by the client.

Female corporate portraits - professional hair and makeup

Today I had the pleasure of photographing the entire female team of Zilver Lining a Specialist Plastic and Cosmetic Surgery Practice and long time client.

In order to get the right look we hired a makeup artist and all the ladies had their hair and makeup done. We went for a softer and corporate look rather than a full glamour makeup to reflect the professional nature of the images. 

While most of our clients do their own hair & makeup (at least the ladies) and that is totally fine we can also recommend using a professional hair and makeup artist, especially for a larger group. Everyone gets to feel special and enjoy the experience. It will show through in the images too :)

Everyone brought in an outfit change to create a second look, we went for a classic black and white portrait look. The contrasting dark background and white shirts creates a striking image.
