After shooting a Holiday Cookbook cover photo for D. L. Adams Associates' annual Christmas mailer, I realized that I had a firm grasp on the nuance of lighting and composition for holiday photography. However, a recent shoot I did for JetLinx Denver required me to come up with a unique and creative approach to satisfy the client's desire to use the Member Area at their Centennial Airport facility, as the background for their company Christmas card. After first being contacted by JetLinx (who I must say are a total pleasure to work with) and discussing some concepts they had in mind for their Christmas card photo, I began visualizing my approach to the shoot, from lighting to posing of the JetLinx personnel. The goal of the photo was to feature 9 members of their Denver team in their Member Lounge, since it is a known location to many of their clients. After seeing a photo of the lounge, I knew I would have limited space to work with, and began planning the difficult task of lighting everyone evenly.Read More

So after hearing the concepts Michael had for new promotional literature he was planning for his hair salon (Salon 17), it became clear that we were on the same page with the goals for his shoot. These were going to be bright, energetic shots, full of expression, and I think that's exactly what we got.
