Rick’s Magical Headshots

I couldn’t help myself with that title… I mean, Rick’s a magician!  He’s THE magician, and he is as kind as he is talented.  We had a great time chatting about his work, his many endeavors in the entertainment industry, and everything else as we snapped away capturing updated headshots for his promotional materials.

Lately we’ve really been growing our corporate work, doing more headshots than in years past… and this session is a perfect example of why.  What we love about portraiture is the ability to translate the character, the personality, and overall essence of the subject in an image.  And while with kids, this provides an invaluable keepsake and memory, with corporate clients it allows the person to put in front of the world an image of themselves that portrays who they are, what they offer, and how they want to be seen.

Rick wears many hats in his professional life, and it was our goal to capture all of them during our photo shoot.  He runs a entertainment booking agency, Cleveland Entertainers, a non-profit that helps kids earn money for their school through selling tickets to his performances with Magic Gives Back, and then there is the way many of us were first exposed to Rick Smith, Jr’s talent in the first place… his work as a magician and Guinness Book of World Record holding card thrower.  So we took all of those facets of his work life, and provided as much variety in his images as he has in his career.

And a shout out to Gabriella, who held the dandelion while Rick threw cards at her!

Corporate Headshot, Please!

How’s your corporate headshot looking? A corporate headshot should be updated every year or two. People want to see who you are right now, not when you first launched your career in your 30s! You and your business are keeping up with the times so why shouldn’t your headshot be current? Your professional headshot can be used for corporate marketing and promotions, websites, business cards, email blasts, brochures, magazines, social media usage like Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, and LinkedIn. You name it, it’s good to have! If you’re looking at your corporate headshot and thinking about how long ago it was taken, give us a call here at the studio. Most likely, you need an updated one-your biz is worth it. We are professional headshot photographers: 216.229.7427.

Senior Portrait Photography

Senior year is going to fly by and there will be a lot of lasts this year. Everybody is here to celebrate you-the you you are right now! It’s kind of a big deal. Actually, you are kind of a big deal this year! You’re on the brink of making some big decisions-not necessarily the biggest decisions of your life-but these upcoming years will shape the person you become, just like these last three years in high school have shaped the person you are today.

Now is the time to start thinking about your senior portraits. It’s a decision you and your parents, and perhaps even your grandparents, help you make. Senior portraits are the perfect reason to get some great photos of you at this point in life. They can be fun, light, serious-it doesn’t matter-it’s YOU!

Photographing seniors is one of our favorite things to do here at Kim Ponsky Photography. We love to go around the city of Cleveland and shoot at iconic spots in the 216. And if you’re thinking about an outdoor natural look, we know exactly where to take you for beautiful scenery.

If you think we’re right for you, we’d love to sit down, chat, and get to know you and your style. After all, we want you to love your photos the most! Take a look at some of our Seniors we’ve worked with in the past.
