And What About Green Screen?

Before and After_Portrait Green Screen.jpg

Using the more sophisticated, still-photography software equivalent of green screen technology, Brian and his team are able to offer many additional services, key to the real world challenges of a team who might not have the most ideal photographic setting, or have a team changing in dynamic as members join or depart. Below are several examples of team photos Brian has shot, and then adjusted by special arrangement:

Background Replacement

Backgrounds can be replaced for both portraits and full group shots. Below, a large team wanted the look and feel of the office they could not all travel to, so Brian was able to defy the logistic challenges of travel, timing, and coordination, and give this team the background and environment they would choose in more ideal circumstances:


Changing Team Dynamics

Teams are always in flux, whether refining or growing. To keep the photos you shoot with Brian up to date, we offer ways to add or remove team members. To add a new team member, we can match the lighting and the pose to the existing team photo, and photograph your new team member to fit seamlessly into the group; to remove someone, it’s a case of balancing the group and making sure there isn’t a trace of the person who has left the team. This option is a great resource for large teams whose composition fluctuates throughout the year.
