Joye Law Firm Marketing Photos

I’ve had the pleasure of working with the Joye Law Firm over the years. This week we photographed a variety of new marketing photos for them. They are a great group and everyone is always so nice!

Reese Joye opened the doors of the Joye Law Firm in 1968 to guide people through some of the most difficult times of their lives. Mark Joye and Ken Harrell are the partners who carry on that tradition. Today, their South Carolina accident attorneys work diligently to do more than help their clients get the compensation they deserve – they help restore the quality of their lives.

Pierce Sloan Kennedy & Early for Super Lawyers Magazine

I have enjoyed being one of the designated photographers for Super Lawyers Magazine for many years.

Super Lawyers Magazine, which is a subsidiary of Thomson Reuters, recognizes the top attorneys nationwide, across a variety of practice areas and firm sizes, using a patented process of independent research and peer input. The lawyers selected include not only represent the seasone veterans with years of experience, but also the Rising Stars of the profession. This well-respected publications is a great resource, designed to aid those needing an attorney they can trust. It has grown over three decades with an unparalleled reach in print magazines and online content.

This week I had the pleasure of photographing the attorneys from Pierce Sloan Kennedy & Early for an upcoming article in Super Lawyers Magazine!

Headshots for McCabe Trotter & Beverly

Over the years, I’ve developed some wonderful relationships within the photography industy. Charleston…and South Carolina as a whole…has a wonderfully supportive cummunity of photographers. If a client contacts me and I’m not available, I find out what they are looking for and recommend several photographers who I know personally, and trust to do a great job for them. Frequently, that good karma comes back to me!

Last week, my friend and amazingly talented photographer, Clark Berry, passed along one of his clients for me. Clark is from Columbia, and photographs headshots for McCabe, Trotter & Beverly, P.C. But when they opened a new branch in Charleston, Clark’s schedule was too tight to drive all the way down here for one headshot. So he recommended me! He also sent me samples of how he photographed the ones in Columbia, what lights he used, and even a behind-the-scenes photo of his setup.

From that information, I was able to meet up with attorney Jim Lady at the new office, and capture a variety of headshots that mirrored the style Clark had used on the original photos!

Pierce Sloan Kennedy & Early

It’s been a real privilege to work with the law firm of Pierce Sloan Kennedy & Early over the years. I first worked with them while photographing an article for Super Lawyers Magazine that they were featured in. We hit it off and I’ve enjoyed creating headshots and team photos for their attorneys ever since!

This morning I captured some new group shots for them with the Nikon Z9, Nikkor Z 24-120 f4, and Sony XQD cards. The color and clarity of this new camera system just amazes me. And the high-resolution sensor will ensure they get a beautiful print of it, regardless of how big they enlarge it!

McLeod Law Group

One of the best parts of my job is meeting new and interesting people!

The other day I got to meet an amazing team of attorneys at the McLeod Law Group. I was there photographing them for a profile article being written in Super Lawyers Magazine. Cooper Wilson was my main contact, who was super helpful with logistics, scheduling, and organizing their team. Mullins McLeod was the principal attorney, and had so many crazy stories from his time practicing law. Everyone was such a pleasure to work with and we came away with a variety of great shots for them to choose from.

Ultimately, they selected the one with the reflection in the conference room desk as their favorite! The images was captured on a Nikon Z9 with 24-120 f4 S lens placed just above the surface of the table using a Manfrotto tripod. To expose for the sky, I shot at ISO 200, f7.1, 1/250 sec. To create a wall of artificial light that would balance out that daylight, I added 4 SB-5000 speedlights firing through 2 Westcott 60″ umbrellas at camera left.

It was an absolute pleasure working with this fantastic team of attorneys! They have an impeccable record and a ton of 5-star reviews. Check them out at: https://mcleod-lawgroup.com/?utm_source=GMB&utm_medium=organic&utm_campaign=charleston.

Pierce Sloan Kennedy & Early

I’ve worked with the law firm of Pierce Sloan Kennedy & Early for several years now. You simply couldn’t ask for a more prompt, professional, and friendly group of attorneys! They like to have fun and always make me feel welcome.

This assignment was for a profile article being written about them in Super Lawyers Magazine. I used a big soft-box on camera-right to fill in the shadows of the first image. The rest were all captured with natural “open shade” lighting. Everything was shot on the Nikon Z9 with the Nikkor Z 70-200 f2.8 on Sony XQD cards.

The Lovely Law Firm – Charleston Office

I always enjoy working with Justin, Amy, and the rest of The Lovely Law Firm team. Based out of Myrtle Beach, it’s been amazing to watch them grow and expand over the years. Yesterday I had the pleasure of photographing marketing photos for the new Charleston Office!!!

Rosen Hagood Open House Event

“Personal attention. Know-how. And seven decades of South Carolina legal experience. That’s Rosen Hagood.”

After ten years at their Meeting Street location, Rosen Hagood has relocated to the Charleston Gateway Center at 40 Calhoun Street. To celebrate 75 years in business, and to introduce this new “home” to their clients, the award-winning law firm held a fantastic Open House Event at their new office this week.  It was my pleasure to cover the event!

Back in 1947, Morris Rosen founded the firm on Broad Street. In 1985, Brew Hagood became partner. In 2022, Rosen Hagood celebrated 75 years of South Carolina legal experience and leadership.  This driven and dedicated team received six Tier 1 rankings and one Tier 2 ranking in the 2023 U.S. News Best Law Firms” list!!!

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!

(Nikon Z9, Nikkor 14-30 f4, Nikkor 24-70 f2.8, Nikkor 24-120 f4, SB-5000 Speedlights, DJI Mavic 2 Pro, Manfrotto stands, Westcott modifiers)

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.

(Nikon D5, Nikkor 70-200 f2.8 VRII, 4 SB-5000 flashes, Westcott umbrellas, Manfrotto stands, and Lenovo Yoga laptop)

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.
