After a long hiatus, G. Thomas Ward Photography is once again open for business and I’m happy to say I’ve had my first post-pandemic corporate headshot client, Christina. I’ve known Christina for many years and how we met is kind of interesting.
Many years ago, a young man named Walter contacted me requesting photos for his online dating profile. We talked about the best approach and we had a great photo session. I photographed him in and around my Chicago studio, in natural settings…at the grill, with my dog, at the beach. We wanted the photos to look very casual and not posed and not too “professional”. Through his personal ad, he met Christina and, after some time, they decided to get married. And they gave me credit for meeting as Christina loved my photos of Walter! So, they asked me to photograph their wedding, and later to do their portraits as a couple.
So, a few weeks ago, Christina contacted me to do her Corporate portrait for her LinkedIn profile and other professional uses. I couldn’t be happier to have had Christina as my first post-pandemic client and I hope to be able to work for her and Walter for many years to come. Here are a few images from our session.
