Business Portraits for KUTV 2 News, Salt Lake City

Because great lighting and making people look good is my specialty, I shoot a lot of business portraits for people who need to look their best. One of my continuing favorite shoots is with KUTV 2 News, who’s ranked number one in Utah. They’re a very fun group to see each time and catch up with, and they’re all very good at what they do.

And with TV being a visual medium, it’s important especially for these professionals to look their best on billboards, signs, and online. So I’m always grateful when they call and have me come in and update their images.

During the day of the shoot, everyone is busy working on the breaking news and their own hectic schedules and responsibilities. It makes lighting extra difficult because we’re constantly moving from spot to spot re-lighting and setting up as various people become available. It means a jam-packed day full of multiple mini shoots in lots of locations.

And after a very long day, we end up with a vast array of options for each anchor and reporter, including studio white, news room, on location, and all sorts of various group shots – ready to go. I’m really happy with how everyone looks, and wanted to share some favorites with you. First, here are some headshots on studio white.

And here are some favorite individual headshots on location.

And each team gets a variety of groupings in various locations too. Here are some of the evening news team group portraits.

A studio white background is useful when adding graphics behind. These are the ones you’ll see on billboards quite often. But I really enjoy creating these group shots below in the news room studio too. The set, cameras, and lights in the background make for some wonderful abstract shapes which tells the story of who these reporters and anchors are and what they do. It’s nice having all options after a shoot.

Here’s the Talkin’ Sports team.

And of course the morning team that is great to wake up to.

If you or your business needs to look great, give me a call. I’d love to create something wonderful for you, so that you and your business look like a million bucks. Depending on the size and scope, we can shoot here in my studio, or come on location and shoot right there at your business. Give me a call at 801-728-3317.

And until next time, America.

New Commercial Portraits for KUTV News Anchors

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.Cox_KUTV2014-1999

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.Cox_KUTV2014-3321Cox_KUTV2014-3309

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.

Bry Cox Image of KUTV Anchors Used in Salt Lake Tribune

One of the images I just shot for KUTV a few days ago was just used in the Salt Lake Tribune for a story about KUTV winning the November 2012 sweeps.

It’s always fun to see these guys and work with them. I’ve photographed them a number of times both for the station as well as doing personal shoots for them over the years. Some of my favorite shoots have been Shauna Lake’s family and her cute boys as well as Matt Gephardt’s incredible wedding in Cabo San Lucas.

For this recent gig, I shot their entire staff of anchors, reporters, and weather teams, and all the various combinations of individuals and groups for their morning, afternoon and evening teams, both inside and outside. The images I created will be used for all their signs, printing, and web use, as well as various TV promos for the next year or so.

I’ll post more from the shoot later, but for now I wanted to wish everyone at KUTV 2 a big congratulations on winning the November sweeps.

Until next time, America!
