| Robert is a portrait photographer located in New York City. He has been a resident of The Big Apple for about 30 plus years and loves photographing the people and multiracial community. One block away from his location is Central Park, his backyard. The park has a lot of great photo locations like Strawberry Fields, Bethesda Fountain, Sheep Meadow, Bow Bridge, The Lake, The Boathouse, etc. These iconic photographic locations make great backgrounds for environmental portraits, business portraits, personal portraits, group portraits and family portraits. The special iconic locations here in NY add another dimension of realism and value to the photos.

He is great collaborator and enjoys the team spirit of listening and helping people solve creative photographic problems and to turn them into creative solutions.
| Successful corporate portrait photography sometimes requires pre-planning in order to get great digital image captures. How a business professional dresses is very important for a portrait sitting. Business attire that is tailored says a lot about the person. The color of a guy’s tie or the color of a woman’s dress, say something from a psychological point of view. By wearing red you are implying that you mean business. Blue conveys trust, stability and confidence. Green is about practicality, reliability and implies being down to Earth. Business headshot photography is valuable asset for any professional to be noticed and respected.
6: Corporate People Photographer | When doing a photo shoot for clients they ask what should I wear for my professional portrait session. I recommend comfortable fitting clothes that are solid in color, pastel and or simple in design. The idea is to dress for success but not have the fashion of your clothes overpower your face. As one of the NYC corporate portrait photographers here in New York business people time is valuable, so being efficient in the preparation is a must.. Corporate people photographers need to help business professionals and entrepreneurs elevate their stature pictorially through the universal language of photography. The photo assistant is always on hand to help style an executive portrait, apply makeup when needed and keep a watchful eye on any hair that may become out of place. Our goal is to promote a supportive environment so subjects feel relaxed and they know they are well looked after.
| As a corporate people photographer, business clients often ask how many photos do you take during a corporate photography session. There is no limit on how many photos will be taken for photo shoot for corporate headshots, just the amount of images that are required. Some people warm to the camera quickly and other business professionals need more time to relax and so we are happy accommodate them during their corporate portraits. As a NYC corporate portrait photographer we love helping people achieve their greatness by empowering them in conversation and capturing great images. As a professional photographer we have photographed business professionals in the photographic studio. We also set up lighting and sometimes backgrounds on location in businessman’s office, conference room or just utilizing the office environment. Our forte is photographing execs on location for industry, in boardrooms and other places of business. The staff bring in our own camera gear when taking photos and on occasion we will shoot with available light, depending on the lighting conditions at a location and or if there is a time limit to complete the photography.
| As an industrial photographer we have traveled internationally for a diverse list of blue chip corporations. Photographing industrial sites are like the bright lights of self-contained little cities with an endless array of pipes, wires and metal structures. The key in my opinion to capturing dynamic images in this industrial manufacturing environment is to focus on the simplicity of design and shapes. Industry that focuses on assembly line production, carefully crafted products or are service based companies each require their own special creative solutions from a visual standpoint. The use of photographic lighting can help further enhance and define industry elements and help strengthen the photographic message.
