I do Executive Portraits for a bank that has several branches here in the Birmingham Alabama Metro Area. I have enjoyed meeting the bankers, getting to know them and of course, the bank wants standard “formal” headshots of their executives. Well I have to tell you about Rihan. About a year ago, I met Rihan at one of the Hoover Chamber of Commerce Lunches. The one where our Governor came to speak and was held at the Winfrey/Hyatt Regency Hotel Ballroom. A wonderful young man who I have had time to getting to know since. If you live or work in Hoover, you will see Rihan around. He is one of the Hoover Chamber Ambassadors, and he really gets around town!
A couple of months ago, Rihan calls me and said, “Missy, I need to come in and get my headshot done….. But I want something not quite so stuffy…” Well, I had a good idea of what Rihan wanted, but knew what his boss wanted and what the bank wanted as well. But you know what, I wanted to do something fun for Rihan. I wanted to provide another photo for him that he could display where appropriate.
And while BB&T probably does not want this particular portrait on Linkedin and on their website, it is perfect for Facebook, a secondary headshot, a great photo that tells a story (because there is a story behind the lapel pin) and perfect for other promotional venues as well.
And with the help of his wife, Rihan selected this photo as his primary headshot.
And as with all Executive Portraits, I provided to him a Black & White version in high res (for marketing materials & newspapers) and low res (for internet).
There is a story behind the Pin – Believe. It was designed and is the theme of one of the top executes at BB&T’s Corporate Headquarters. This executive has inspired Rihan and this is the pin that Rihan has chosen to wear as his BB&T Lapel Pin.
If you need a banker, be sure to check out Rihan at BB&T in Hoover on Highway 150. He would love to talk to you about your banking business. Who knows! You may see him about town at a ribbon cutting or many of the other Hoover Chamber events.
