We had the distinct pleasure of photographing Jim Johnson, President of LineDrive out of Chicago, and later capturing on-location headshots for their entire team. The company is the premier manufacturer’s rep agency focused on the electrical, material handling, metalworking and safety industries. Jim is one of those people who is genuine, engaging, professional and gracious. He’s a person anyone would like to know or do business with.
We started talking about the leadership team’s desire to ramp up the company’s professional brand and how improving the professional presence on their website would help. Below is a before picture of some of their team members. So we started talking about the upcoming all-employee meetings in Chicago and Denver, and Jim asked if we would come to their meetings and get new headshots for all of the employees.
What a great opportunity. My husband Greg and I drove down to Chicago in April so that we could bring our own equipment (my assistant Tonya flew and met us there). And then Tonya and I flew out to Denver in June. And a special thank you to Montana photographer Judy Myers who assisted in Denver.
The team could not have been more welcoming and friendly. It’s easy to see why they are so successful, and I felt honored to have the opportunity to help them ramp up their professional brand with new headshots. Below is an “after” image of what the website looks like now – wowser! So much more professional.
