Company Pics: The Management Center!

This is now my fourth time photographing this group (here they are earlier this year, last year, and the year before), and each time their headshots always come out so photogenic. Is it because their purpose is to help nonprofits run even more smoothly and therefore, help people and the world? Or because they are exude such care and support for one another as colleagues and friends that it shows through their smiles? In any case, something is working right at this company (and I dare say almost every company, whether a nonprofit or not, could stand to learn a little about good management if they want their employees to look this relaxed and happy in their professional headshots).

This particular day was extremely blustery and windy that the people could barely stand without being blown over, let alone any of my light stands. In between gusts of wind throwing debris into their eyes and their hair all over the place, I managed to get most people’s pictures done quickly before we retreated to safety inside to take the rest of them. Here’s a few selections of headshots I particularly liked (for artistry, really) and some of the working teams who congregated for a few serious and then silly shots.


Company shots: The Management Center, 2018!

This is my second year photographing the staff of The Management Center, and boy has this company grown in the past year. It had to move locations and increase the number of desks, but the staff’s dedication, attitude and level of fun is more than obvious that this job isn’t just merely a paycheck, but a huge part of their lives. Knowing that poor management and bad bosses are one of the top reasons people leave a job, its main purpose is to help progressive non-profits and organizations function better as managers. This helps to avoid losing great talent who would otherwise make a difference to important people and issues. You can tell these people love what they do – no one ever gets this giddy for a company shot! Here are a few from that terribly hot and humid morning down near Farragut North, in what’s known as the “Golden Triangle” district.

Company Shots: The Management Center


2017-06-28 18.25.36logoThere are lots of good intentions out there, and lots of action whirling around to bring those intentions to light. But sometimes, a roadblock appears in the process, bringing the project to a screeching halt. Enter The Management Center: a company whose purpose is to help nonprofits manage their processes and people better, and help them overcome hurdles to realize their mission and goals. The company is made up of people from all over the country, with a wide range of experience and background, but united with passion and drive to do good. For a rare moment, the staff were together in DC recently for a company gathering and seized the opportunity for a group photo and some headshots.
