BNI Portrait "Mini-Sessions"

"Business Network International is the largest business networking organization in the world."

BNI creates the opportunity to build strong relationships with professionals in almost any service you can imagine. If you know one person in a BNI chapter, chances are they know exactly who they can refer you to for any business, home, or event solution you need.

I was invited to BNI's visitor day by a great guy Larry Fredlund, who also encouraged me to provide BNI members and guests with the opportunity to get quality portrait for their promotional material. Those who were able to stick around after the meeting and participate are down below. I would love to do this again if the opportunity is there.

I love to do environmental portraits with my clients. However it isn't always practical for many employees at a company to meet one-on-one with a photographer for an hour or two. A 5-10 minute "Mini-Session" is a great opportunity to get just a few images to choose from while still having enough time with each person to relax a little and have some fun.

If you'd like to learn more about setting up your own Mini-Sessions, I'd love to hear from you.

For those who participated, just click on your image and you'll be taken to your gallery.




If you have any issues with purchasing your portrait. Please contact me any time.

Recently I really had a great time with the Crosstown Camera Club back in February at Alec Jonson's Studio in Edina, MN. There were about 30 photogs there with everything from point and shoots to 5DMKIIs. I think the overall equipment price total would have easily reached near $30k. 

We used three different stations with different looks for lighting and backgrounds. Not alot of time was spent in post here since this shoot wasn't a paid gig. But I'm trying to catch up on several projects all at once with my in-laws in town to help with our two little-ones. 

We had three models at the shoot. Rex, Nicole (the blond), and Tearra.
