Foto de perfil profesional

Muchas veces he visto en mi red de Linkedin o en otras como Facebook, Google+ o Twitter que la gente que busca trabajo o trata de consolidar su marca personal recurre a todas las técnicas posibles, menos a mejorar su foto de perfil profesional. El verano de 2013 tuve la oportunidad de fotografiar para la empresa de consultoría on-line Findasense, donde hice mi trabajo mas gratificante del año, tanto por el trato de sus gestores como por el buen ambiente de la oficina y el entusiasmo de su equipo. Todas (o la gran mayoría) de las fotos de retratos y del ambiente de trabajo de la oficina son hechas por mi. Al poco tiempo pude observar que las personas que había conocido y que había agregado a mi red de Linkedin usaban los retratos que yo les había hecho como foto de perfil. Recientemente un amiga que migró a Canada me llamó para pedirme asesoría de como hacerle una foto de perfil a su marido para, ya que les recomendaban que trabajaran mejor sus perfiles en redes sociales. Pensé «parece que aquí hay un nicho». He decidido ofrecer este servicio a todos aquellos emprendedores, freelance y personas en general que quieran mejorar su imagen en sus perfiles de redes sociales y tener una foto que realmente les represente como son, donde se vea su personalidad.

Portrait photography – emergency shoot with a strobe

Portrait photography – emergency shoot with a strobe

    [wptab name=’English’]-. Portait photography Working as a freelance photographer for many years in Madrid has led me to some expertise to solve unexpected requests with a minimum quality standard. Media industry in Spain is not much organized or planned. It tends more to improvisation and the photographer has to be prepared to rush requests and produce good shots in short periods of time. I’ve never excused on time to justify poor quality on my work. It’s true that many times shooting conditions are just crazy and you can’t get nothing good out of them, but with the proper set up and intelligence you can make some magic happen and surprise your customer overcoming difficulties and producing a great shot in the worst conditions and rushing up. That’s what really makes the difference between you and other freelancers. Normally I carry with me my Canon 580EX II speedlite unit and a Hahnel remote radio trigger, that allows me take some risks and let my creativity fly. One of the tricks I use when shooting outdoors is placing the subject in the shades, setting my camera exposition to the lights and filling the subject with the light of my speedlite. That shot will give you the volume feeling that the customer can’t see on simple view. Even show him the results with no flash and with it, so he can see the difference the two shots and your expertise. The client will love you forever for being able to do something he can’t even dream about in so short time and with almost the equipment you can carry in...
Portrait Photography – The day I met Maria de Villota

Portrait Photography – The day I met Maria de Villota

[wptab name=’English’]-. Portrait photography I’ll always remember the day I met María de Villota. My friend and colleague Susana Vera from Reuters passed me an assignment for a Mag she culdn’t do although she drived me finally on her car to Jarama race track. There was that blonde girl under 30’s. At first sight she looked like a pretty girl with her doll house, but instead of having a house she had a box and instead of a doll she had a Formula 3000 car. I don not pretend to underestimate her, but unveiling my own prejudice and of many, who’d thought by that time that a woman could reach the dream of Formula1? The answer was on her look, she believed on it with deep determination and reflected it. Despite her friendly manners, strange behavior in an Elite athlete, María showed no sign of gender weakness when talking about her desire to reach the top. What most called my attention was that next time we met she saluted me with special affection, remembering our precious meeting. I’ve always thought that when you photograph somebody, there’s an intimate moment between two people. Both give something away, the photographer gives care through the camera and the subject gives back trust with its attitude, I’d dare to say that the phootgrapher/subject relationship is closer than the journalist/interviewed, because despite being shorter, the subject strips in front of the photographer, lets him see its inner self, with no words. Many times I keep some special affection to some people I’ve photographed, even if I never meet them again. Most of it if...
