Working as a Boca Raton Photographer certainly gives me the opportunity to meet and photograph some very interesting people. This photo of Pilot Dan Rooney was taken during a corporate event which took place at the Boca Raton Resort and Club. The special event was part of a sales training and team building event that lasted several days.
If you have never heard of Lt Col. Dan "Noonan" Rooney here is a little background information. Dan Rooney is an American hero who has served as an F-16 fighter pilot in Iraq. He is also a well respected motivational speaker who was named "Hero of the Year by People Magazine. He has also been awarded many honors for his philanthropy and scholarship awards. During his lecture he spoke about the challenges and hard work it took for him to become a fighter pilot. If you are interested in learning more about this great American hero here is a link to his website. A PATRIOT’S CALLING. His book is a must read if you are interested in improving your career and life.
During his lecture at the Boca Raton Resort and Club I was tasked with photographing him in action. I wanted to produce several images of him speaking with his imagery in the background. This took the perfect combination of a fast shutter speed and a wide open F-Stop mixed with electronic flash. As an fast moving dynamic speaker, Dan Rooney showed an enthusiasm that commanded the attention of the entire audience. He also moved around the stage a lot. Having shot many special events as a Boca Raton photographer I have developed the skills required to capture many images that show his personally in pictures.
If you are a photographer and are interested in the stats for this photo, it was taken with a Nikon D3s at 1/40th of a second with an f-stop of 2.8 at Iso 640. I used the 1/40th of a second shutter speed because I wanted to make sure the image behind him was also viewable. Had I used a faster shutter speed I the image of the fighter planes behind him would have been too dark.

Being a Boca Raton Photographer has allowed me to also photograph some other very interesting and unique events.

Over the years in South Florida I have produced many of the following types of photography including, corporate event photography and headshots which is described as conveying images for a company in a way that gets the companies message across in the best way possible which helps to inspire confidence with your clients and potential clients. In addition having a corporate headshot is a huge factor when it comes to marketing yourself in the most, professional light. Since your headshot is what many people see first, you really want to do everything possible to you can to make it look good. We have taken thousands of attractive headshots as well as executive portraits for use on websites and professional profiles.
In addition we have been hired many times to produce step and repeat photography events. Step and repeat refers to having portraits taken in front of a background in such as way that many people can get their photo or headshot taken quickly. Often clients will want us to print photos at the event so that guests or attendees can leave with event with a physical printed photo.
In the event drone photography or videography is needed we can also cover your event from above. We have used drones to capture many corporate events from high angles as well.
