Project: New Website Launch
Client: Seyfarth Shaw LLP
Scope: Photographed more than 900 lawyers in 10 U.S. and five international offices — including Melbourne, Sydney, Hong Kong, London, and Shanghai.
The project lasted approximately 40 photography days.
A unique aspect of this project: There were a few challenging aspects from the logistics standpoint. In addition to their new website, Seyfarth was also undertaking an overall brand refresh which called for a new professional photography perspective. The portraits had to support this new brand direction and a key element of the new photography was a consistent white background.
Gittings photographed each lawyer on a white background and later clipped each person out in order to drop in a perfectly consistent background. We also prescribed a consistent light direction for each lawyer which helped create a more cohesive feel to all portraits.
Our client said: “Barry and his team made a daunting task easy and seamless. Their use of technology to coordinate appointments and their network of trained photographers allowed us to complete the project quickly, efficiently, and consistently.”
