Adobe: Picture Perfect

Overwhelming gratitude.
That’s how I feel when I photograph at Adobe.
Oh, happy, too, of the bursting variety.
So much to say about this set.
But the images themselves will have to do the talking.

Him to Her

WINTER, SUMMER—I traveled up and down the San Francisco peninsula photographing corporate business professionals. I’d like to share a few of them.

Adobe

The only thing better than a corporate shoot at Adobe is a corporate shoot at Adobe on a balcony overlooking the City. With a cityscape like that, your eyes would pop, too.

CyCognito

Members of the CyCognito leadership team needed new headshots to match an existing look and feel. Although it departs from my customary style and aesthetic, I thoroughly enjoyed working with a white background and two off-camera strobes.

Procurant

When you provide solutions for the global food supply chain, it’s smart branding to photograph your leaders outdoors where trees and hedgerows provide a splash of color.

Fenwick & West marketing pro

This aspiring marketing leader at a legendary law firm wanted to blend the venerability of law with the approachability of marketing. Done and done. 

Oh, did I say Adobe?

If so, no harm in repetition 🙂

Healoha Is Waiting

Meet Brigitte Mouchet.

She’s a wellness entrepreneur in the Bay Area.

She’s the founder and CEO of Healoha, a marketplace for wellness services that helps both clients and practitioners. Healoha is available in the U.S. and French-speaking countries in Europe.

Inspired by waves and ocean air, Brigitte hired me for a day of corporate photography on the coast in Half Moon Bay, one of her favorite places in the world.

We captured images for use on the company’s digital and social media channels, images ranging from corporate headshots like these two images…

…to environmental portraits like this…

…to social and active shots like these…

…and even to landscape photography, which required a jaunt to Santa Cruz, where the mist lifted at last and Walton Lighthouse winked at the purpling sky.

I hope you enjoyed your visit. Thank you.

Smart Start

Let’s get one thing straight: Teachers are the best.

In the back-asswards Hierarchy of the Underappreciated, they’re perched on a mountaintop of nurses and EMTs, janitors and sanitation workers, freelance writers, line cooks, and UN interpreters.

So when Smart Start preschool hired me for staff photography, I jumped at the opportunity and threw myself into the assignment as though it were Teacher Appreciation Day.

Actually, days. I hope my effort shows.

Day 1—Newark, CA

 

Day 2—Livermore, CA

 

To the staff at Smart Start—and teachers everywhere—thank you. Thank you.

It’s Chime for a Change

A change in banking, that is.
Last March, during a break from the rain,
I photographed the Chime leadership team in the City.
When you’re doing corporate photography on Maiden Lane,
It’s best to put the street to good use.
Here are a few headshots from the day.
Scroll, peruse, enjoy.
Thank you.

A Team Called Trōv

People love their toys.
You know, cameras, lenses, and laptops.
Headphones, snowboards, and music equipment.
People also love the convenience that comes with 24/7 mobility.
In downtown Danville, there’s a small startup called Trōv with a big ambition.
They’re reinventing the way digital natives insure the toys they love.
Recently, I had an opportunity to meet the team at Trōv and photograph them.
I’m thrilled with the results and am delighted my client is too.
Please scroll or swipe, and enjoy!

Of Smiles and Steel

If you have a business partner, you’d better enjoy that person a lot.
As this dynamic duo clearly does.

Laughter is fine and well.
But selling homes often requires a Lady of Steel…

…or a light’s out smile…

…or a willingness to stop traffic, come what come may.

But more than anything, connecting with customers—in real estate or photography—requires candor…

…and sincerity.

And nothing is more candid and sincere than Mom when she drops by for a visit. My favorite kind of photobombing!
