Tampa Editorial Photography – Business Lifestyle Profile

This April I was hired by the University of Arizona Foundation to photograph one of their successful alumnus.  The concept was to photograph the alumnus, Anton Anderson, showing his lifestyle now, as a successful business man.

The photograph would appear with a snapshot of why he chose UofA and the success he had achieved after graduation.  The feature is called “Ten by Ten” since each year they choose ten successful alumni ten years after graduating and tell their story.  Each of the alumni are also generous donors to the school.

This assignment was especially poignant for me since my father, who has long passed away, was a University of Arizona alumnus.  In addition, at one time in his life he was a freelance editorial photographer himself.  This was special.

The images below show the original photograph taken at Sunset Beach on Treasure Island, the article and published image and the cover of Arizona Alumnus Magazine, spring/summer 2012 addition in which the article appears.

Corporate Executive Headshot Photography – Using a Make Up Artist

Much has been said about making a good first impression.  It has never been more true today.  The economy and job market the way it is today, one needs every advantage to land that new job or new account.

That is why I recommend and have available a professional make up artist for all my photo sessions, either in the studio or on-location.  Lindsay MacConnell can be booked for any photo shoot whether it is for just a headshot or for updating website images involving your staff.

The two images you see below are recent headshots that Lindsay assisted on.  Take a good look at how beautiful the skin tones are.  Look at how even the color is and how gentle the color transition is.  This, in part, makes for great headshots.

To book your headshot or if you just wish to inquire about pricing or availability email me at  As always, drop by my websites at or

Tampa Photography – Executive Portraits – Headshots

Executive portraits are usually thought of as the standard head shot against a neutral background.  These types of portraits certainly have their place, as you will see in the first photograph of Linda McKinnon, CEO of Central Florida Behavioral Health Network.  She needed a very traditional, conservative, portrait made for public relations purposes for her company.

However, Azuree Ashby did not want something traditional for her headshot.  She is just getting her CPA practice off the ground and wanted something a little more edgy that reflects her personality.  You will see in the second photograph we broke a few rules but created a very professional “look” for her.

Dr. Emily Lazarou of La Coop P.A. needed to update her website images.  She was looking for business portraits in her working environment that would show her in her natural surroundings at the office.  She wanted something that did not convey “clinical” to her prospective clients.

What ever your needs are for corporate, business, or executive photography are, Rick Lewis Photography can help.  I work very hard to make sure my clients are 100% satisfied with the “look” they need to achieve their public relations goals.

Tampa Business Headshot Photography – Environmental

More and more I am being asked to do environmental business photography for my clients.  Business headshots, or portraits, or what ever you wish to call them have a much more inviting and informal look that is so popular these days.

Depending on the location, they can be much more difficult to photograph but they usually exceed the client’s expectations with the overall feel and look.  Some offices are just not suitable due to the decor or cubical size but we can usually find a location that is fitting.

These three images are examples of what can be achieved, from very casual (for a magazine article) to more formal images for the client’s website.  And, you should also notice these are much more than “headshots”.

For more information on how arrange for your own session, contact me at:  Be sure to visit my website for more Tampa Business Headshot Photography.

Aerial Photography | Tampa | Clearwater | St Petersburg

I did something last week I had never done before; photographed from 700 feet in the air.  The client wanted aerial shots of their corporate event at Tampa’s Raymond James Stadium.  They contracted with a local Tampa helicopter service to provide the aerial platform.  I met the owner / pilot, David Edwards, at  Plant City Airport, and off we went.

David is a great guy and a great pilot.  He assured me I would not fall out the open door as we flew to our objective.  I was not so sure.  In fact I was pretty nervous about it.  I had only been in a helicopter one other time, and, coincidentally, the door was off that one as well.  But I took him for his word and about the third orbit around the stadium I started to feel better about getting the shots.

It was a piece of cake:-)  I got some great shots and the client was very happy.  Go to Rick Lewis for further information on photographic services.  And, you can always reach me at

There is no question I will be doing more aerial photography in the future.  With a good pilot, like David Edwards, getting the shot the client needs is in the bag.
