It's not often that I get offered a beer at a headshot shoot, especially not at 10am, but Kittelson and Associates is an exceptionally friendly place. The company is based in Portland and has translated their kind Pacific Northwest vibe to Baltimore. My job was to take some portraits to match the existing style for their offices all over the country.
A few months ago I had the pleasure of photographing this year's crop of McLarty Scholars down in Washington, DC.
Photographs at the Capitol are a staple of any DC photographer's diet, and I've shot enough of them to pay the mortgage for a few years. Still, the shots can be tricky to pull off, especially if you bring lighting. Set up in the wrong spot and you're liable to be run off by the Capitol Police, trampled by a horde of tourists from Wichita, or be set upon by a boorish gang of anarcho-syndicalists!
I had a really fun shoot the other day with the gang at Abovo42.com, a Baltimore-based internet startup. In addition to my normal headshots, they also wanted to shoot portraits that showed their playful side. So everyone in the office brought props related to their hobbies -- golf clubs, soccer balls, beer brewing equipment, etc. -which we used for a bit of photo improv.
I haven't worked for anyone else in over 15 years, but if I did Abovo42 would be my kind of company. See the guy in the "Save Ferris" shirt? That's Sean the CEO!
