David West | Better Business Portrait

I had the honor of photographing a Calgary businessman recently to create business headshots for use on his website and marketing materials. David West is a Social Media Consultant and Professional Speaker, and the owner of Ekzact Solutions. Ekzact is a leading Calgary website design and search engine optimization company. They specialize in creating custom websites for small to medium-sized businesses and help them to get ranked higher on Google and ultimately convert leads to sales. If you’re in business and your website is not performing to your expectations then you really need to see Ekzact for a free consultation.

David needed updated headshots to use on a rebuild of his personal website and he wanted to be able to cut out the background so that the images would blend into the existing colors on the site. I have a selection of backdrops available and I would normally recommend something more attractive than pure white for business portraits, but when the background is going to be removed anyway then the best choice is to use something clean and simple without any patterns. We decided that a pure white seamless paper backdrop would be a great choice for this session so that extraction of the backdrop in Photoshop would be easy.

I can create custom photography solutions to make your life easier. If you have a specific use for your final images please let me know and I can work with you to determine the best approach. No job is too big or small…
