I worked as a business headshot photographer for the Jamba Juice executives at their Plano, Texas, Shops of Legacy location. I photographed each person inside the store, using slight variations for the background. We then went outside for a few shots, with the exterior of the store falling out of focus in the background.
JLL is a global commercial real estate company. They required a business photographer to take pictures that would create a cohesive look for their national and international offices. We achieved this image by selecting a clean white background. JLL will be using these photos for email signatures, presentations, and LinkedIn profiles.
I was commissioned by Plano-based Cinemark Theatres to create a headshot and portrait for each of their executives. We used one of their empty theatres as the backdrop.
