Sometimes I get hired by companies to create portraits of their employees doing their jobs. Most workers have never had a picture of them at work, or if they have, it’s a low quality snapshot taken by another employee. I have photographed employees that have been on the job for over 25 years and have never had their portrait created. When I explain to them that this will be different, professional, one that they can take home and show their spouse and kids and say this is what I DO, they get it. When I give them a quick “glance” at the back of my camera they quickly realize that this is special. It means something to them, and it means something that their company wanted this for them. These workers are proud of what they do.
Here is one portrait I created while on location for Ledcor. It was a pleasure to photograph their team as they were professional and courteous.
