Staff, corporate, or even family group photos... GBP style!

We have been doing more of this style of group photos lately, so I thought maybe I should tell you guys a bit about it.

Above is an example of a staff/corporate group photo... but done in a different way. Instead of lining everyone up in front of the office plant collection, we shoot everyone separately, or in groups of 2 or 3. We then later cut them out and piece them back together in a any sort of position. This has a few key advantages:

  1. Not all of your staff has to be shot at the same, time allowing your business to keep running.
  2. We can make sure that each person looks their best.... rather than having 7 people looking great and that one guy in mid blink... which is normal of larger group photos.
  3. If you have staff turn-over.... no need to reshoot the whole thing.. we can just take that person out and add the new person in.
  4. Eliminates distracting elements from your group photo, and focuses the viewer on your staff.
Plus we can shoot this just about anywhere there is enough room to set up our equipment! So if you're saying to yourself "Dang Gary that is a sweet idea... how do I get a shot like that for my office?" just shoot us an email.

Couples in the Cold...

So in gearing up for theYukon wedding season, we're also starting to book up fast with engagement shoots...

This means we've had to learn to be strategic...finding places hidden out of the wind, (or at least rest areas in between shots), finding gloves that allow us to still work our trigger fingers without getting frost-bite, and of course it always helps when we work with couples who are willing to brave the elements and still look great!

This brings me to one of our latest...these guys were only in town for a week over the holidays, so even though it was frigid outside, they wanted to brave it to make sure we got some out-door shots. Luckily, even though the wind was relentless, the lighting that day was beautiful and we were able to hit up a few different locations before we all called it quits and needed to warm up.

Looking forward to working with these guys again this summer in some warmer temps...
