Personality Portraits

There are two main categories that corporate portraits fall into, the standard head and shoulders photo and then the “personality” photo. We do both at Andy Templeton Photography, but have noticed a trend that more corporate portraits are storytelling/personality photos.

Professional Photography Equipment

Recently I invested a few thousand dollars on additional lighting equipment and it got me thinking about photography equipment in general. There are many differences between a professional photographer and amateur – one of them being the tools that they bring to the job, having the right tools and knowing how to use them makes all the difference in the world.

Annual Report Photography

Recently I secured a contract to produce the photographs for the Orange District Attorney’s Office Biannual Report. I have done a few jobs for the County of Orange and was looking forward to being involved with this particular group…. They are actually a fun group of people.

Irvine Executive Portrait

CEO’s are busy people and the marketing department was hoping to get as much as we could given the limited time this gentleman had. A lot of communication with my contact prior to arriving helped. Of course I brought an assistant. Working fast, moving lights from location to location, composing, and dealing with the unexpected makes having a second set of eyes and hands mandatory on a shoot like this.

Location Studio Lighting
