On-Site Business Photography St. Petersburg, FL

On-Site Business Photography

 

This session of on-site business photography was done for Cindy Scifres, LMT, CPT, and Certified Neuromuscular Therapist, whose healing arts practice is located in St. Petersburg. Images were created for a website update.

Behind the scenes, before and after images can be viewed below.

There are many advantages of doing on-site business photography, especially when you are needing to show examples of what you do, your environment, or to avoid having to break down equipment and have it moved and set up in a studio.

On-site business photography can have issues that have to be dealt with, space usually being the predominate one.

For example, while this room had more than adequate space for neuromuscular therapist Cindy Scifres to perform her treatments, it was somewhat confined for use as a photography studio. In spite of that, by using the proper techniques, skills, equipment, attitude, and preparation, we successfully made the conversion to a photo studio work.

On-Site Business Photography – Transforming Your Work-Space

 

The before and after images, show below, reveals the full view of the room to illustrate the transformation from a dedicated “work-space” to a temporary photography studio to create her on-site business portraits. While this room had more than adequate space (as well as a great feel) for neuromuscular therapist Cindy Scifres to perform her therapy, it was somewhat confined for use as a photography studio. In spite of that, by using the proper techniques, skills, equipment, and attitude, we successfully made the conversion to a photo studio work.

Edward Berge Bronze Sculpture | Maiden With Fawn

An (Edward Berge) Treasure In The Garden

I was recently contracted to photograph this bronze sculpture by Edward Berge, entitled Maiden With Fawn. This sculpture had been sitting in someone’s garden somewhere in Tampa for what appears to have been a considerable length of time. The prolonged exposure to the Tampa Bay’s heat, humidity and rain have taken an obvious toll. Yet in spite of it’s distressed condition or perhaps as a result of it she, the Maiden, has a surreal-life-like quality. This is most evident in the facial expressions and hands.

The Sculptor Edward Berge

Edward Berge (1876–1924) was a Baltimore, Maryland sculptor known for his bronze monumental works and figures. He studied at the Maryland Institute and the Rinehart School in Baltimore and the Academie Julian in Paris. Edward Berge mainly worked in marble and bronze and completed many monuments, portrait busts and relief sculptures. Many of which are on display outdoors or in public buildings in Baltimore City.

The “Maiden With Fawn”

This specific sculpture of the Maiden With Fawn, was cast in 1939 after Edward Berge’s passing.  The sculptor Perna Krick’s (1909-1991) name is also engraved on the base, it is thought to have been cast under her guidance. It was cast at the Roman Bronze Works foundry.

The Roman Bronze Works Foundry

The Roman Bronze Works foundry was established in New York City in 1897 by Riccardo Bertelli. It is now operated as the Roman Bronze Studios. It was the first American foundry to specialize in the lost-wax casting method and was the country’s pre-eminent art foundry during the American Renaissance (ca. 1876-1917). The Maiden With Fawn was one of many sculptures of Edward Berge that were cast there.

Session Details

This sculpture was photographed “on-location”. On-location meaning being in my client’s home in Clearwater, FL.

A greenscreen backdrop was used on part of the session then knocked out in post production. There was also photo documentation of the foundry stamp, the engraved copyright notice and other engraved information that were essential to verify authenticity and to determine the sculpture’s net worth.

My equipment list for this session: Nikon D2x and D7100; Nikon lens 28-70 2.8, 105 DC f2, 80-200 2.8; lighting was a mix of 2 Norman strobes (1 each 200C and 400B) mixed with ambient light. The strobes were set up as bare bulb, with an umbrella or a softbox.
