Avast Branding – Charlotte, NC
When I’m not busy chasing kids or boosting the self-confidence of a teen, I occasionally join the world of grown ups. 😉 Avast was in need of a some updated branding images for their local Charlotte office. If you’re not familiar, Avast is a European based antivirus software company for both individual consumers as well as large corporations. Each of the European offices had already had photos done, but their Charlotte office needed a few shots.
Considering my regular work space is either in my home office surrounded by my own kids or outside in fields, hoping I don’t cross paths with a snake… it’s always a nice change of pace to check in with the corporate world every once in a while. Being surrounded by professionals on international business calls and popping in on legit meetings was pretty fun. Y’all, they have a pool table that matches their company color! And an Xbox! My boss really needs to give me some upgrades. 😉
For these types of sessions, I try to make sure to grab a variety of shots, depending on the purpose and overall goal of the shoot. For example, shots of employees in different departments, managers in meetings, and of course a group photo are all great to have, especially for in-house publications.
Everyone at Avast was super nice. One of the requirements I’ve given myself as the owner of my own small business is I have to truly want to work with the people inquiring. It’s just not worth it to work with people that you don’t connect with. Thankfully, I had a great time with these guys. The overall vibe at Avast is so welcoming. I was completely comfortable doing my thing, and they were so cooperative in making sure we got the shots we needed.
