Corporate Head Shots and Fun at EdExperts, St. Louis

We recently went to EdExperts to take some corporate head shots of the staff. In addition to the formal portraits, we also had staff members do something fun, different, or bizarre (of course, this was at the client's request).

As far as equipment is concerned, we brought a few Canon Speedlite 580EX II flash units to light the space and used the available walls in the office as backdrops. I shot with one lens, my Canon EF-S 17-55mm f/2.8 IS USM lens. That's it.

Here are a couple of the many formal portraits we took. The top photo is of Michael, the CEO, who got extra billing during the shoot - complete with wardrobe change - and thus is featured prominently throughout this post:

We wandered around the office and caught people striking poses at their desks:

We encouraged people to try out different expressions and poses:

Others played with their pets:

And others jumped or attempted to do jazz hands:

Thanks to EdExperts for having us out - we had a great time!


  1. lol I love the kissing warthog photo...Is the animal real? I want to know how you got it into the studio/office? :P

  2. It was very much real and used to be alive. It was in the office when I was there to shoot, so I used it as a prop.
