This blog post is all about some headshots I took for Aviation Specialties. Their two founding owners were in need of up to date professional portraits. They had been notified their company would be being featured in an upcoming article in Vertical Magazine. The publication was requesting current headshots of both owners… to accompany the article.
Aviation Specialties contacted me, inquiring if I was up to the challenge. The challenge being two fold. One, did I feel comfortable photographing each individual inside the helicopter hanger. Preferably with the helicopters some how incorporated into the images. Challenge two, neither of the gentleman in need of portraits, wanted to have their photograph taken. In fact, they were already “grumbling” quite a bit about the idea. Did I think I could handle a few gentleman not eager to have their portrait taken. I said heck YES, I was totally up to the challenge!
For those of you who are not aware of what Aviation Specialties does… they specialize in aviation products. They design and sell a variety of products, including night vision equipment and tactical helmets. Pilots throughout the world use their products. They are leaders in their industry and they just happen to call Boise, Idaho home.
The images posted below are just a few of those selected as favorites by “Aviation specialties”. In fact, you’ll find the tear sheet from the magazine article at the bottom of this post. It highlights a few of the images taken by Leap Photography.
