Charles Fair, Calgary Lawyer and Mediator, Mainwood Legal Services, Calgary Alberta
I met Charles Fair through BNI, Rocky Mountain Thunder he was looking for Business Portraits to use on his website, as well as his LinkedIn etc. I packed up the studio and travelled to Charles’s office to do the business portraits, he has this great red/burgundy colored wall that looked wonderful, we also used another wall, you know the colour, average off white office wall color, I am glad Charles choose to use this one, it really does set the portrait apart from the normal.
Now a little about Charles…..
Charles Fair has been a lawyer for over twenty years, since 1992. He provides a range of legal services to individuals and business, representing clients who are in conflicts, or hoping to avoid conflicts, regarding business, family law, divorce, personal injury and estate matters.
Charles works closely with his clients to achieve the best resolution possible in each case. Building his mediation practise, he wants to help his clients find a solution appropriate for everyone involved and that builds relationships, in a timely and cost efficient way. Charles understands that sitting down together, with a structured plan, and to estabilish common ground and a goal to resolution, makes sense to everyone. Mediation is his first choice in resolving disputes, but not his only skill.
One of the best parts of being a photographer who specializes in Business Portraits is the interesting people I meet. Spending about 45 minutes in the studio or on location, the time goes by as I learn a little about each person. Most busy professionals are reluctant to take this kind of time out of their busy schedules for photos, but I have found that if we can spend a little time together, people start to relax and their personality shows through. It is hard to set that 2 x 3 image Linkedin image apart from all the others, but it is possible.
Thanks Charles for giving me this opportunity to work with you.
