LinkedIn Profile Photo Portrait Session - Chatswood


On LinkedIn and other business networking venues, your profile photo is your first point of contact with the world

Whether you are promoting your business, looking for work, selling products or networking with colleagues, a photo of you knocking back a beer at a party is not going to cut it.

For this profile photo session, we were in the heart of the busy north shore business district, Chatswood. We found buildings, walls, plants and trees enough to do several different looking shots which will suffice for all of the different types of social networking sites that the lovely Amanda required.

At one stage we were approached by security and questioned thoroughly about why we were shooting and to be certain that no signage was included. At first we were a little put out but after a bit, we decided that the guy was playing around with us...ha ha!

It was a really windy day so had I used the pop-up reflectors I had brought, I may have ended up in Fiji. Instead, I used my speedlite and softbox weighted down with a 10kg bag. I had bought a new granny grocery wheelie cart so we were pretty mobile. Much fun!
