Berkeley County Promo Pics

I have really enjoyed working with Jenna at Berkeley County to capture a wide variety of promotional pictures for their marketing team. Today was another fun day in pursuing that goal!!!

Berkeley County Government

I have really enjoyed working with Jenna, the amazing Public Information Officer over at Berkeley County this year! Last week she had another great day of photography lined up for me.

It may look like a ton of work…like we were zipping all over the place, from one office to the next, from building to building. But Jenna is so organized and so cheerful when she enters a room, that it made the whole day a ton of fun. I can see why she is so well known, and so well appreciated by her colleagues!

Headshots for HSB Law

It’s been a while since I’ve worked with Haynsworth Sinkler Boyd PA. This morning I was back at their office photographing new headshots for attorneys that have recently joined the team, as well as updated headshots for several attorneys have have been there a while.

Berkeley County Headshots

I always appreciate it when new clients find us through a personal connection. Jena at Berkeley County reached out to us after good my friend and amazing videographer, Thomas, recommended us. (Check him out at www.malphrusvideo.com.) I had so much fun photographing headshots for Jena and her team last week!
Setting up in the auditorium, I used a Nikon D5 with 70-200 f2.8 VRII tethered to a Lenovo Yoga laptop using Adobe Lightroom software. Lighting was provided by 5 Flashpoint Zoom speedlights, using two Westcott 60″ umbrellas. The background was also by Westcott. Stands and supports were by Manfrotto.

Berkeley County Headshots

After capturing some new marketing photos for Berkeley County last week (https://chrisandcami.com/berkeley-county-marketing-photos/), this week I got to photograph new headshots!

My general rule of thumb for on-location head-shots is, if I can’t carry everything in one trip, I don’t NEED it!  🙂  So here’s how my portable kit packs up:
– Westcott Collapsible background
– ThinkTank Airport Take-Off camera bag
– ThinkTank 2nd Brain laptop bag
– Foldable posing stool
– Manfrotto tripod
– Manfrotto lightstand bag

It was a lot of fun meeting and photographing everyone! I think some of the nicest people in Charleston work there. And Jenna, the coordinator for the photo shoot, was fantastic to work with! I’m already looking forward to my next follow-up assignment with Berkeley County later this summer.

Berkeley County Marketing Photos

Last week I had the pleasure of working with Jenna at the Berkeley County offices in Goose Creek to capture some new marketing and promotional material. It was an absolute pleasure working with her and her team! Everyone we photographed was so kind and accommodating. I’m already looking forward to our next session!!!

Headshots for Weeks & Irvine

It was a dull and dreary morning outside, but a bright and cheerful one inside. I had so much fun photographing headshots for two new attorneys at Weeks & Irvine law firm!

The only place I could set up was in the “children’s room”, where kids get to color with crayons and play with doll-houses while the adults sign paperwork and do all that boring legal stuff. Pushing a few things to the side, I angled my background so that I could shoot diagonally, giving me the greatest working distance possible. I set up an SB-5000 background light 3 feed in front of the background. I fired two SB-5000 flashes through a 60″ Westcott umbrella for a main light. And I bounced another SB-5000 off the adjoining wall as a fill light.

All images were captured with the Nikon D5 + Nikkor 70-200 f2.8 VRII at ISO 400, f5.6, 1/200 sec, tethered to a Lenovo Yoga laptop. After each individual’s session, they got to review the images to make sure they were happy with them, and to pick out their favorite for the website. Naturally, I also shot a few silly ones for the fun of it! 🙂

Weeks & Irvine is Expanding

I truly enjoy working with the fabulous team at the Weeks & Irvine Law Firm! Not only do I shoot for them, I use them for my personal real estate transactions. If you’re looking for an excellent firm to handle your closing, look no further than www.weekslawfirm.net.

My relationship with them began over a decade ago when I had the pleasure of photographing Robbie’s wedding. I also photograph a number of events for the Charleston Trident Association of Realtors (CTAR), which are sponsored by Weeks & Irvine. And of course I get to meet and photograph all their attorney’s headshots for the website.

Last week I got to travel to Greenville to photograph their newest office, which is in a really neat restored brick building. Carson was great to work with and we captured a variety of different expressions for him to choose from. Many thanks to Nicole for all her hard work organizing these photo shoots.

Headshots for the Wasden Banias Imigration Litigation Team

It was a pleasure to photograph the Wasden Banias Imigration Litigation team last week!

“Today’s world requires new strategies to overcome visa delays and denials. Whether it be a visa for your spouse, employee, or the PERM process, an attorney with experience in federal court litigation is necessary to gain certainty in your unique immigration process. Wasden Banias is an administrative law litigation firm, designed to guide you through the litigation or petition process.”

We met at Hampton Park on a beautiful unseasonably warm winter day. It was so much fun meeting everyone and capturing these fresh new images for their markating team. Many thanks to Carolina for organizing everything!!!

New Headshot at Weeks & Irvine Law

Katie is the newest member Weeks & Irvine. She’s from our sister city of Savannah, and has joined a wonderful team of attorneys here in Charleston! I had the pleasure of photographing her this morning at their Mt. Pleasant office. We had a BLAST!!! 🙂

Headshots for Savage Law

Welcome to the team at Savage Law, Joseph!!!

It was an honor meeting and photographing this gentleman from Hartsville who moved to Charleston to study law, fell in love and got married, and now has landed a position with one of the most respected criminal law firms in town! Congratulations on the new position…and cheers to all your future success!!!

Images captured by Nikon D5 with 70-200 f2.8 VRII lens, Manfrotto tripod and light stands, SB5000 speedlights, and Westcott modifiers.

Headshots for Weeks & Irvine

It was a pleasure photographing the new team members at Weeks & Irvine Law this morning! This is such a great firm. And they always seem to hire the nicest people!!!

I set up our wireless portrait studio in their “children’s play room”. It’s pretty tight in there! But somehow, between all the bean-bag chairs, xylophones, picture books, and puzzles, I squeezed in a 5’x7′ backdrop, 3 Manfrotto light-stands, 4 SB-5000 flashes, a 60″ Westcott umbrella, a tripod, a D5 with 70-200 f2.8 zoom, and a Lenovo laptop! 🙂

Here are a few favorites and fun out-takes…
