Headshots for Elliott Davis

The weather was a little “iffy” this morning. But Sarah at Elliott Davis thought we had a “window” of opportunity to get their headshots in. And she was right!
The drizzling stopped just long enough for us to capture a variety of nice headshots and casual portraits of their team on the beautiful grounds of The Gaillard Auditorium. Everyone was fantastic to work with. Plus we had the extra benefit of overcast skies to provide us with nice, soft, light to shoot with!

Headshots for Elliott Davis

The pandemic put a halt to “on-location” shoots for a lot of my clients. Many firms like had employees sheltering and working from home. Plus visits from outside vendors like us were put on hold. But as folks get vaccinated and things open back up, business is slowly returning to normal!

It was so great to be back at Elliott Davis yesterday and to see their employees back in the office! Last time I was there, the place was a ghost town with only essential workers coming in. It was nice to hear the “buzz” of happy interactions and fun laughter echoing down the halls as I updated headshots for a number of new employees that have joined since things went on lockdown.

All images shot with Nikon D5 with Nikkor 70-200 f2.8 tethered to Adobe Lightroom on a Lenovo laptop. Supports and tripod provided by Manfrotto. Lighting created by 4 SB-5000 flashes bouncing through 2 Westcott shoot-through umbrellas. ISO 400, f5.0, 1/250s.

Headshots in a Breakroom

This morning I had the pleasure of photographing headshots in a breakroom.

No, seriously, it was awesome!!! I’ve been photographing headshots for Elliott Davis for a number of years now. And I normally get stuck in a tiny office down a dark hallway. But with Covid causing most of the staff to work from home, the building was eerily empty. So I got to set up in their big, bright, beautiful breakroom instead! 🙂

Headshots for Elliott Davis

This week was round two of headshots for Elliott Davis. They are such a great organization!  I really enjoy working with them.

Last time they had me set up in a big conference center. It was being used this time. So we pivoted over to one of the offices with some nice greenery outside the window. I lit everything with 4 Nikon SB5000 flashes, 2 Westcott umbrellas, and 2 Manfrotto light stands. I shot with my Nikon D5 and 70-200 f2.8 VRII tethered to the laptop so that each person could review their images immediately after their session.

Everyone was right on time, and so much fun to work with!  Can’t wait for round three!!!

I owe Liz a HUGE “Thank You” for inviting me to photograph updated head-shots and marketing photos at her new firm of Elliott Davis. Liz used to work for another large accounting firm in Charleston. When she accepted a position with Elliott Davis, she knew they needed to update their images.

I am so grateful that Liz thought of us for this assignment! It was a lot of fun. Everyone was so pleasant and easy to work with. We captured a ton of great images together! Here are just a few of the 500+ we captured that day.

CONGRATULATIONS Liz on finding your new home at Elliott Davis!!!

In-home Executive Portrait

It was a pleasure photographing an updated head-shot for Mr. Renshaw as he embarks on his new career path!

I met up with him at his beautiful home on Johns Island. We looked through various samples of portrait styles he liked, and chose a background that was in line with the requirements from his new company. I then set up my wireless portrait station, using the appropriate light modifiers and light placement to achieve the style we were after. The whole process was quick and painless. Even his daughter , who was home visiting from college, joined in the fun and helped pick out the best shot to use!

Congratulations to Mr. Renshaw on his continued success!
