It feels almost like a life time since people would have called me a “corporatist”. You know the type, white shirt, black tie, black or grey suit, black shoes. Wearing a suit was my second nature, and it felt good. Can you blame me? After all, I was working in the baking system, the one system that’s present everywhere and nobody truly understands it. 😉 I remember those times with great joy and I’m grateful for all the things I have learned, for all the experiences I have been through while working with the corporate world. I know there are people who feel intimidated by men and women in suits, but fear no more: regardless of the clothing worn, we are all people.
I remember that during my years in this corporate world, it wasn’t a job without major events, and let me tell you, I have witnessed one of the biggest of this century: The Big 2008 Financial Crisis. Oh boy, what a disaster: closing down businesses, factories, people left without jobs or lost their houses…. Luckily now is 2019 and all is left behind (hopefully) and settle down.
A long way had been in front of me and since my corporate adventure. I have had the chance to be able to study the The Complete Course in Professional Photography (among other courses, and of course the most known two other universities, YouTube and Google) of New York Institute of Photography -oldest photography school in the world- and now years later I am able to be freelance photographer in Tokyo, where I live together with my family, my wife and our little dog Yorkshire Terrier, whom we call Tzitzy.
I remember when I had to photograph my first corporate event for a real estate company. The speaker (which by the way, was amazing) was talking about how to make smart investments by making first the market research in order to fully support a very well structured business plan. I remember I had an internal debate about how to implement all those information I could hear into my photography. I should probably mention that most of the information weren’t applicable to my business profile, but one could dream right? 🙂
It goes without saying that I had an amazing time taking all these corporate portraits during the event, especially because it was for the first time. Worth noticing that now I have quite a few corporate events under my “belt” and I have photographed from press conferences to Gala Diner held by Swedish Embassy in Seoul.
Because I’m a relentless and perfectionist photographer always seeking for the best photographs for my clients, I make no difference and treat with the same level of seriousness all my photography work, be it a corporate event that takes place in an exquisite venue in an expensive hotel or a family photoshoot in the park. Remember, after all, that CEO is a loving father and a husband after hours and I’m more than delighted to photograph his family as well.
