For your business photography needs, are you looking for a corporate photographer in Saratoga Springs NY? You’ve found the website of a top business photography specialist dedicated to handling the needs of businesses, communications departments, corporations and publications. These pages of this website contain the work that was done directly for businesses, with an understanding of the photography needs that any business, large or small, has.
Do you need a business photography specialist? Tired of wading through all the people listed who specialize in social and consumer oriented photography, hoping to find someone who understands and specializes in photography for businesses?
Hi. I’m Mitch and I’m a business, communications and publication photographer. Looking through my website and blog, you’ll see an absence of the sorts of consumer and social photography that is so prevalent in the marketplace. That’s because I’m not a “me too” photographer claiming he can do anything and everything, all the while really being a business which mostly serves the consumer marketplace.
My work centers around directly serving the needs of businesses and institutions. The assignments I handle are done for manufacturing companies, financial institutions as well as services industries such as education and health care concerns.
The clients I work for are usually in corporate communications departments, public relations agencies and advertising agencies. And often, I’m hired by editors of in-house magazines as well as trade publications to provide specialized documentation of business people and the operations of a company.
It all falls under the same umbrella of documenting the people and operations of companies. The main difference is that somebody who is a corporate photography specialist will have the skill to create executive portraits, headshots, meeting coverage, the ability to photograph active facilities or manufacturing operations. And an annual report photography project may be the sort that requires all of those skills.
Look for the most experienced and versatile corporate photographer in Saratoga NY I photograph farmers and executives. I work in board rooms and barns. My years of experience started out as a full time news photographer and upstate NY photojournalist. The skills acquired in that market segment made me a versatile photographer with a wide range of photography and, most importantly, people skills.
A key to my versatility as a Saratoga NY photographer are my people skills. Years as a full time news photojournalist have taught me how to work with people, how to handle different personalities and moods. How to make people comfortable and to respect them without seeming like I’m obsequious. Or patronizing. Or a bully.
Of course I have the camera, aesthetic and lighting skills to work in any environment and bring back the photos that you need.
Being a corporate photographer, the skills I already mentioned are definitely important. Aligning with those skills is the often overlooked ability of a photographer to pre-plan and visualize their way through an assignment. And that requires the ability of your chosen photographer to be able to walk through what will be needed to make your assignment successful. You need somebody like me who can do this for you.
It might be thinking through whether we will have any permit or location issues. Or what the natural lighting will be like … both indoors and out. Or thinking through how long somebody may be available to us and how to get the best variety of images from the time they are giving to us. You don’t want a photographer who shows up then doesn’t know how they are going to get their equipment to the shoot location because they can’t just roll in the front door with cases of gear … like they were a regular visitor to your place of business.
You need someone like me who can think through all of this … in advance … so that you don’t have to solve problems when you should be focusing on creating great work.
A lot of my clients are in the agriculture sector. These types of clients range from actual farms to providers who offer support and management services (just like you would see in the financial or manufacturing industries). So sometimes I’m making photos of actual business operations happening. Sometimes I’m making portraits or more illustrative images.
This photo of a dairy farmer evokes a sliver of the late day light sweeping across the landscape and falling on our farmer. I wanted that feeling of sweeping light. Of a confident and engaged person who, ultimately, runs a multi million dollar business even though he wears mud caked boots.
That was my vision for this image. But on the farm, there is no time for someone to stand around waiting for hair and makeup services and for me to play with a bunch of compositions and lighting scenarios, done at a time when the lighting was ultimate and perfect.
This was taken on a hot summer afternoon when the sun was high and merciless in the sky in the middle of the day. And when the farmer had a few minutes to break away and stand around for photos. My location choice placed me in a spot where I could control the light and make a graphically pleasing image. The simple lighting was designed for that late-day feeling of open spaces. The warmth was added. And it all was done with minimal fussing so that I could get the farmer back to work and I could get myself back to the other 10 to 20 shots we were doing that day.
I work to bring a feeling and make a connection with everyone who sees my photos. The connection I seek is a simple one; I want to make people remember something or feel something they have see or felt before, such as this warm and angular light. That connects the viewer to the image and ultimately connects them to, and communicates, your message.
There is a lot of work you can see here on my website and on my blog which will give you a sense of how I work as a corporate photographer in Saratoga Springs. But you really need a sense of who I am as a creative and as a photographer. So get in touch about your project and I can offer you insight and ideas as well as show you how I can take control and get your visual communications project off the ground.
And I’d enjoy hearing a bit about your project as well as the needs you have and the challenges you face. Especially if you’re in the planning stages where I have the opportunity to help you think through what will be needed to make it happen smoothly and successfully.
And I look forward to hearing from you. I’m always excited to have a new project come my way.
Let’s make some great photos together!
