Executive Portraits and Head-shots – WPX Energy
I love doing Corporate Location photography in Denver. Executive portraits and business head-shots photography at the WPX Energy office in Denver is like working in a giant indoor/outdoor studio. WPX has had me back several times to do corporate location portraits of their executives. Each time I’m amazed by the team of confident yet easy-going business people. Over the past few years, I’ve had the privilege of capturing corporate field photography and corporate event photography for WPX. And I’m looking forward to a new corporate field on the west slope of Colorado slated for this spring.
The executive portrait photographs posted here were all done in one day. But prior to that, I was consumed with corporate location photography in Denver and photo-shoots for several national corporations. The art-direction for those portrait photo-shoots was blander and uninspired – simple vertical head-shots against a seamless background. The morning part of the shoot for WPX was well underway before I remembered (was reminded by Janet) that the format was to be horizontal. I’ve long preferred a horizontal portrait of a single business executive. Horizontals just seems to show the corporate environment better than a vertical. Plus, a horizontal image is more conducive to a web page. One of the horizontal portraits published on this blog was actually captured as a vertical format. I created additional space on both sides transforming it into a horizontal image. Here’s a little contest – De Croce Photography will give a free photo-shoot to the first person who can correctly identify the altered image.
Thanks to the sublime make-up by Suzanne Blons who makes my Denver executive photography sparkle.
