Sometimes, no matter how hard you try, you can’t always get your team or your board of directors all in the same place at the same time. That’s when you need to call a professional photographer who is experienced at “group composite photos.”
A group composite photo is a single photograph that has been created, using more than one image. Essentially, adding one or more individuals to a group photograph (when they weren’t really there when the group photo was taken), or simply photographing each individual person separately and compiling them into one single image – and doing so convincingly.
Newsome’s Studio has been creating group composites for years, and has found more than one reason they’re great for businesses.
- Getting the absolute best image of each person in the photo
- Non-stagnant group posing
- Affordable new image when people leave or are added to the photo
Law firms, Doctor’s offices, Insurance companies, Banks, Boards, and many other places of business may want a group photo taken for their “Meet the Team” page on their company website. If they ARE lucky enough to assemble everyone in one place for a photo, it is rare that everyone looks their absolute best – all AT THE SAME TIME, and in ONE PHOTO! And even if they do, within a year or less, someone leaves the firm, someone gets transferred out of state, someone gets terminated, someone gets replaced, and BOOM!… the group photo is suddenly rendered useless!
Kevin Newsome has solved this problem for several businesses in recent years. He has photographed the team, board, and staff photo of as many of 20 individuals – separately – and composited them into one “near-perfect” group shot. When one partner leaves the firm, no problem. Delete them and add the new person in their spot, avoiding the need to re-photograph the entire group, saving the firm HUNDREDS of dollars! Why waste the entire team’s time to be reshot, when all you need to do is send one “new-hire” in to the studio to be photographed? We can easily match the lighting and posing, then drop the individual into place in the group photo – even rearrange the group if necessary!
Companies now have a choice… they can pay a little for one collective group photo (all taken together), then risk needing to shut the office down to recreate it when someone needs to be added or removed (wasting precious time and money); OR… they can spend a little more to create a group composite, and save money down the road when the same scenario plays out!
Consider the cost savings over the long haul when considering your group photo options. Newsome’s Studio will gladly accommodate your needs either way, but considering how transient some occupations are these days, the best choice (IMHO) is to composite that team photo!
