The Kimpton Group contacted me to create portraits that weren’t your standard executive headshot. Their fabulously colorful offices in San Francisco, accurately reflect the fun and whimsical nature of their hotels. So we decided to create photos that utilized the colorful walls and creative props.
In addition to the environmental portraits, we also created headshots for their identity photos on social media like Linkedin, Facebook and in the company’s promotional emails.
A good headshot or portrait always shows the subject in a relaxed mood. The smile looks natural and spontaneous, not posed. This was easy to achieve with the Kimpton folks due to the creative and collaborative style of management at Kimpton. My team had a great time working with everyone and look forward to staying in their spectacular hotels in the future.
