Professional Company Headshots in Boston
A New Approach to Professional Company Headshots & Portraits in Boston:
A novel visual approach to a groundbreaking corporate venture. Black and white company portraits are a sophisticated and understated way to tell a story on the About Us or Team page. By shooting in B/W, the portraits make up a consistent branding of the business.
The Professionals Behind the Photographs:
This is my third year photographing the new searchers for Boston’s Search Fund Accelerator. SFA is an innovative venture: it mentors and funds a handpicked group of young entrepreneurs in their quest to find a company to acquire, manage, and grow. It’s an amazing and rare opportunity. The target company is usually family-owned and looking for an exit strategy.
Our portraits, then, are taken with the intent to portray these young men as professional, trustworthy, and approachable. The message is: “I’ll take good care of your company”.
How to Brand a Small Company:
With this photography, we present the searchers as a team, branded in the SFA visual traditions we had already established.
The searchers come from amazing backgrounds. They’re Marine geospatial intelligence officers, rig drilling experts, investment bankers, world travelers, and company founders. It’s like sharing the room with a huge ball of potential energy.
I remember coming on board to document Search Fund Accelerator’s inaugural year. Our photo shoot documented what was literally one of their first meetings as a group. It was fascinating to see these very polished and focused kids trying to jump over the same hurdles I or anyone else in business has to jump over. How do you identify potential partners, learn what makes them tick, cold call them, and become integral to their business plan?
How to Take Successful Corporate Headshots:
It’s no accident these portraits came out as successfully as they did. To a man, the searchers were modest, earnest, and optimistic. Maybe that’s what makes a good CEO. It certainly made for a good photograph.
