Kevin Sevier State Farm

Remember the old Hairclub for Men advertisement, “I’m not only a client, I’m also the president”? For many of our clients, I can say “I’m not only a client, I’m also the photographer! 🙂

Last week I had the honor of catching up with our old friend, and our trusted State Farm insurance agent, Kevin Sevier. It’s truly amazing what he has done with his business! They finally moved into their new building last year. And they’ve added new members to their team. So Cami and I went down to photograph new team photos and updated head-shots for them.

We had a great time, and even got the behind-the-scenes tour!

Marketing Photos for South Atlantic Bank

This morning I drove to Hilton Head Island, where I set up our wireless portrait studio in the lobby of the South Atlantic Bank. We were shooting marketing material for the new branch down there.

The setup included a 9-ft white seamless Savage Background, 6 SB-800 flashes, 1 SB-5000 flash, 1 Nikkor 70-200 f2.8 VRII, and a Nikon D5. Two SB-800 flashes were placed on either side of the background about 3 feet out to illuminate it and give it that crisp clean high-key look. They were the background lights in Group C. My subjects were positioned about 4 feet from the background. To camera left, about 5 feet in front of them, and several feet off to the side, was a Manfrotto stand holding 2 SB-800 flashes, firing through a 60″ Westcott umbrella. These were the main lights in Group A. Immediately to my right was another stand with 2 SB-800 flashes, also firing through a 60″ Westcott umbrella. These were the fill lights in Group B. Last but not least, the SB-5000 on my camera was controlling all the lights. RadioPoppers were used on each flash to ensure consistent transmission.

We had a great time and came away with a wide variety of fun photos for the marketing team to work with!

State Farm Headshots

We’ve had the privilege of working with some of our corporate clients for a very long time. I consider this a real honor and a true testament to our service! After all, if we weren’t providing a great product, with friendly service, at a reasonable rate, in a timely turnaround…who would keep coming back?

It’s been 10 years since I photographed Kevin Sevier’s first State Farm headshots!!! Based out of Hilton Head, it was great to catch up with him and photograph some new headshots for him and his staff while we were down there this week.  Congratulations on your continued success, Kevin!

If you or your office would like to experience why so many of our corporate clients have been with us for so long, please reach out!  We’re currently booking new clients who are ready for a new  headshot to kick off NEW YEAR with a smile!!!

Matt’s Musical Genius

I don’t have a musical bone in my body. I have the utmost respect for musicians!

Photographing Matt and the musical genius that hides behind those friendly eyes and that handsome face was a real pleasure for me! I’d photographed him many years ago when Matt was just a budding musician in high-school. He’s made quite a name for himself in the trumpet world.  We are so proud of Matt, and so honored to capture these images for him!

Many thanks to our friend Kellie at Kellie McCann Photography for the use of her gorgeous studio.
