I always love photographing the KUTV news team. Time really flies between our shoots and it feels like almost no time has passed as we all laugh and have a great time shooting images. The entire team is great to work with and always fun and extra grateful to have me there working. I’ve been doing their official portraits for many years now, and these images get used on billboards, in brochures, on websites, and really anything where they need an official portrait.
We shoot a variety of images of every team in a variety of locations, all with custom lighting. It has has to be done quickly because we are shooting these images as they are working, plus it’s all done in and around the hustle and bustle of a busy newsroom. To add complexity, we need to create images really quickly in a variety of locations all in a few minutes while we can get certain people together. That means constant new lighting setups all over, and shooting so that images look perfect in-camera. We move around from their news studio, to a white studio, to all green, as well as setting up outside. And the chef of course is photographed in their kitchen too. We’re never in the same spot for more than a few minutes.
Shauna Lake and Mark Koelbel have been great clients of mine for many years, and it is always good to see them. They make a great team too and it’s fun seeing how talented and polished they are as they work live.
And below is the entire nightly news team, as well as a number of other favorite images from the shoot.
And here is the morning team, which is as funny in person as they are on TV. I’m always amazed at their energy level so early in the morning. I really like how everyone looks in these images.
KUTV produces news almost all day long. They have a constant line up of shows and so they have a lot of talent. We photograph everyone and all the groups, and I won’t post them all here, but here is a screenshot some of their favorite head-shots and how they’re used on their website’s contact page.
If you are a business and would like some great images of your staff and you want to look great, professional, while showing personality, and you want your shoots to run quickly and efficiently, then give me a call. 801-728-3317.
I’d love to create something wonderful for you. And until next time, America.
