Recently I was on site at a software company doing corporate headshots of their staff. Your typicial vanilla corporate headshot setup with a plain background, softbox up high, 100mm lens for head & shoulders shots, yadda yadda.

We’re super excited and exchanging giddy high-fives today because Image Workshop has been featured on photography industry uber-website Fstoppers.  Zoiks!

Damaged Duo – promotional images for circo-arts performers

By | Portrait Photography, Promotional Photography | No Comments

Circo-arts performers Mim and Neisha – who go by the moniker The Damaged Duo – wanted new promo photos reflecting their motto “To entertain and infuriate”.
