Board of Directors Portrait Photography

August 30th, 2017 No comments

When a BOD has their annual meeting, it’s a great time to schedule photography.  Many leaders of the companies we work with only get together once a year.  This project for an international consulting firm included people people from offices in LA, London and India.  We worked to coordinate the headshot and portrait photography in all the locations.  We frequently hire and train photographers in other parts of the world.  Their photography need to precisely match the headshots and portraits we make for the offices in Northern Virginia and DC.

When you have 10min with a bunch of people that won’t be together again for a year, you better bring your A team photographer.

Lansdowne Va Architectural Photography

I usually hate it when people walk through my architectural shots but this time the third person who walked through looked great.  I was pleasantly surprised to see the touch of red come through on an otherwise drab shot.  I was shooting long exposures on a tripod but was able to change my settings quick enough to freeze the action at precisely the right moment.  We had to ask her for a model release after and I’m sure she would have walked out again if we asked nicely.

 

Stewart Image and Nations Photo Lab Honor Fallen Hero Charlie Keating IV

This week, a Navy SEAL was killed in Iraq, during an ISIS attack on a small Christian village near Mosul. A handful of American advisers were in the village at the time of the attack, and they were surrounded and cutoff by nearly 200 ISIS fighters. Charlie Keating IV led the SEAL Rapid Response counterattack to rescue the trapped Americans. The small SEAL-led assault team inflicted massive casualties among the ISIS terrorists, effectively destroying the attacking force. Tragically, during the violent 12-hour firefight Charlie Keating IV was killed in action.

Stewart Image was contacted by a friend of Charlie’s family to create a photographic tribute to be displayed at the Memorial Services and funeral of Mr. Keating. Stewart Image was provided a very small (480 KB) file, taken by a cell phone, as the desired image. Michael Stewart implemented extensive upsampling, noise reduction and several creative sharpening techniques to that original image. His extensive technical expertise generated an image suitable for a 16X24 inch canvas print. Stewart Image contacted our friends at Nations Photo Lab in MD to produce a rush print.

Mr. Rob Grant, their Accounts Manager and a fellow photographer, eagerly embraced the challenge of producing, mounting, framing and shipping to CA a 20X30 inch framed canvas print in less than 24 hours. They produced a superb canvas print with an extremely compressed delivery schedule. They then refused to charge us for their outstanding effort. Stewart Image wants to profusely thank both Rob and all those at NPL who worked so hard to meet this challenge for their thoughtfulness and generosity.

CNN has written an article on the incident and you can read it here.

Trustworthy Pharmacist Headshot

February 19th, 2015 Comments off

What looks like a simple headshot was actually very tricky.  The white coat and shinny badge gave me trouble at first but I’m trained for such lighting issues.  Angle of incidence equals angle of reflection, the inverse square law,….etc.  I like the portrait because of the nice contrast in lighting and the “trustworthy” look.  It was done on location at a Wegman’s in Virginia.  We shoot for them regularly, matching their requirements for background and crop.
