The rate per hour cannot exceed $35 US dollars. I am looking for a photographer in Chicago, IL to take photos of our client - a professional. The photos will be used for our website as well as for print. The photos will need to be delivered in raw and .jpg (maximum quality) color balanced, professional.
I'm looking for a casual, candid, smiling feel to the photos. Environmental portraits of someone in their typical work environment is the theme. The subject may be in their office or other location, perhaps on the phone or at work. The photos *must* exude a level of comfort and casualness. I do not want a standard LinkedIn head shot where someone is staring into the camera.
The aspect ratio will be *landscape* most likely shot with a wide lens ... but that is up to you. The photo needs to allow for additional headroom above the subject and additional space to either the left OR the right of the subject. The subject will be off to one side of the image. The extra space to the side of the subject is important to allow for wording which will accompany the photo -- which I will design in post.
If I could take a diagonal slice from the lower corner to upper opposite corner and still have a good image of the subject... that would be ideal.
See the two examples uploaded. A small office location may not permit the spacing I want around the subject. In the examples attached, I like the spacing of the outdoor example and the casual look on his face more than the indoor example. (These are just screen shots from the internet, not our photos.) Excellent focus of the subject's face is a requirement. The background can be soft, but not the face.
No student photos.
