61. Instant business portrait

This quick and easy business portrait can be shot on location or in the studio and Karl shows you how to do it in a matter of minutes either on a gray or white background.


  1. Hi Karl,
    I do like the light from the scrim better than the softbox. Next time would you please make the scrim light be the main instead of fill.

  2. I love the use of a collapsible back drop. I shall invest in one. I use the X drop system now and this would be even quicker. Just a collapsible and a stand. Great advice for a quick business portrait setup. I’ve done a business portrait shoot even simpler ( one light) in a dentist office lobby. The window was a large store front window with a frosted coating simulating a scrim. I bounced the one light to create the soft box simulation. I only did it though because the conditions were there to accommodate it so having options is a must, as those conditions don’t always exist.

  3. Hi Karl,

    How much would you charge for corporate portraits? maybe if its a group of people for each, depending on a number
