BLUE BACKGROUND HEADSHOTS! A rare sight on my website, though I have nothing against colour (even if my wardrobe, apartment, studio space, accessories, etc. may suggest otherwise). Maybe I just have a thing for neutrals ok? In any case, blue background headshots for this crew.
We did this shoot last year, when my friend Simon Bédard contacted me to create portraits for his new company Clinia. Our shoot was done before I had a studio space, so I hosted this portrait party in my living room. Because Simon's team has a mix of employees, contractors, and freelancers, not everyone had met prior to the shoot, so the headshot party was also an opportunity for them to meet each other for the first time and hang out.
One fun thing about this shoot was to create a background that complemented Clinia’s branding. After a visit to DeSerres, I came back with cardboard panels that were close enough, and after creating a quick preset to adjust the blues in the photos, I was able to have the photos convert automatically to the shade that we wanted as I imported the photos onto my computer.
Each person had the option of coming with a prop that represented them (or they scavenged my place for a prop). I’m happy with the results!
In case you’re not familiar with Clinia or aren’t using it yet, it's an online listing platform to help you find health professionals of all kinds (radiologists, therapists, family doctors, etc.). What’s convenient about it is that other than of course being able to search by area and profession, you can also search by specific service. So for example, you can search for wisdom teeth extraction services directly, instead of checking in with all the dentists in your area if they do so, as some do and some don’t.
If you work in a clinic by the way and would like an additional way for people to find out about you, make sure you join the listing.
Thanks for reading!
