I am so happy that I had the opportunity to work with Renee Ryckman the owner of the Escape Countdown. Renee came into the studio to update her business portraits for her company. She was looking for some headshots for branding that she could use for different marketing pieces. I think that we nailed it! I love when the session is not forced and you work with your client in a very natural way. When Renee came back into the studio for her ordering session she was able to pick the images that worked best for her brand and the ones that she loved!
I always educate my clients on their headshot sessions so that it goes as smoothly as possibly. My clients and I talk about several things before such as hair, makeup, clothing and accessories that will make their business portraits look polished. This helps my clients have a stress free session and we get amazing images! Our clients use their images for their business profiles, marketing pieces and social media.
I am the social chair of our local photography guild and decided that I wanted to put together something fun for the group. We try to do something together every couple of months and usually it is photography related. However, this time I proposed that we try the Escape Countdown. I love to support other businesses in the community and Renee being one of my clients I thought this would be a great adventure for us. I thought that it would be a good team building experience for the group and we could get to know each other on a different level. Ha! Without a camera and lens in front of our face!
The Escape Countdown is definitely and experience. You are locked in one of their themed interactive rooms and you are required to figure out puzzles, make observations, and use critical thinking to unlock yourself and team from the room. The thing is you only have 60 minutes to do so! You can check out their website here. I totally recommend going! It was so much fun and it is great to really do with anyone whether it be co-workers, family or friends. They have three locations to choose from Sarasota, Tampa and Fort Myers!
Here are the images that we chose! Love them!
