COMMERCIAL & MARKETING Raymond James Corporate Shoot Project Objective: A Clean Collection of Sharp Corporate Images for a Brand New Careers Website We've been doing work for Raymond James, a global financial services company headquartered in St. Petersburg, for well over a dozen years. I’ve done a variety of work for Raymond James, including capturing/creating head shots and images for its annual reports and covering events. I've had the pleasure of working directly with their Marketing Department. Chris Bennett, Creative Director, and Grace Powers, Senior Account Executive, called me in to scout a project for imagery to populate a new website focusing on career opportunities within Raymond James.
Challenges: The main challenges here weren’t that unusual for us: we used employee models, so no professional modeling talent was used. This requires making them appear professional and comfortable even though none of the models had any prior photo shoot experience. Over a two day period, we were to shoot over 40 people at 6 different locations around RJ’s expansive campus, and in addition to the imagery for the website, we also produced environmental portraits of all employee models who participated in the shoot, so the number of images to produce meant we had to move fairly quickly, something else that isn’t very unusual!

Kim Metrokotsas"We initially hired Thompson Studios for a campaign in 2011 and have relied on Bob’s expertise ever since. His ability to capture both candid moments and staged ones is fantastic. Bob has excelled in capturing the essence of our community pictorially. He is a true talent and a pleasure to work with from initial inquiry to final product." Alex Lavin"Bob took photos of our entire office and headshots of all our staff members. The photos were high quality (See my LinkedIn profile picture) and were produced and ready for use very quickly after the shoot. We did our shoot during patient hours and Bob was fantastic about keeping a low profile and remained virtually invisible which allowed our office to function normally while he was able to capture very real-time photos of our office, staff and willing patients. I would would recommend Bob for all your personal and professional photography needs." Shannon Drosky “I highly recommend Bob Thompson. We have had wonderful experiences with him over several years. I can always depend on Bob to give me more than enough high quality pictures that truly represent our school. It is hard to capture the love of learning and genuine happiness of the students and teachers yet Bob manages to get it every time!” Kevin Plummer “Tampa Preparatory School has been working with Bob for nearly three years. His eye, artistry, and understanding of the rhythm of a school allow him to capture moments photographically in a manner that is nothing short of magical. His photos grace our website and our publications and his work has been transformative in assisting our school’s ability to craft messages supported by exquisite photographs. He is also incredibly easy to work with. A professional photographer who understands how his work can positively impact the lives of his client!” Katy Jahn"Bob is not only a great photographer, he's also great at coaxing a smile and a more natural look out of even the most difficult subjects (like me). Great to work with and highly recommend him for your corporate work." Jennifer Vigne“We used Bob on a number of occasions for our most critical needs (website, annual reports, advertisements and magazines) and each time he provided us photography that exceeded our expectations. Bob’s photography captured the essence of who we are as a school – and it is through his photography that allowed us to share stories eliciting strong institutional pride from students, parents, and alumni. Bob is not only an exceptional photographer – he is also genuine, dedicated to his profession and caring to his customers. I highly recommend Bob Thompson Photography.” TESTIMONIALS Contact Bob Today! “Working with Bob and his crew at Thompson Studios has been a gift for our entire school community.
