Our Story

The passion for photography started with a simple Minolta point and shoot 35mm film camera in the early 90’s. This camera allowed me to start exploring composition, film speeds, and utilizing light. Fast forward 15 years, I finally arrived to digital photography, a Fuji Film Point and Shoot zoom. These decades of progression lead me to creating FD Finch Photography located in Historic Benton Park, St. Louis, Missouri. Our primary specialty is headshot photography, which has led us to host clients from high school grads to corporate leaders. Our team enjoys the challenges of creating the best corporate look for your business and the warmest story-telling headshots that lets you set a standard for making that first impression.

Our Process

Our team will set up a white backdrop onsite to provide an uniform display for the AWD conference participants.  Our headshot station will include all of our camera and strobe lighting equipment. If necessary, we have the ability to use a primary constant lighting scenario for anyone sensitive to our strobe lighting equipment.  We will have a connected display for each headshot recipient to review and select their desire headshot onsite.  Additionally, our team will seamlessly visit the various workshops and forums in the conference to capture photography highlights from the speakers to the audience engagement.


Each headshot recipient will receive one headshot via digital download. Each file will have three versions. First will be a color headshot with the headshot in landscape orientation skewed to one side(example shown below). This allows a open space to allow for any branding or marketing. Second is a custom edited black and white version in landscape orientation. This version is perfect for press publications that are printing in black and white. Lastly is a color portrait-orientation 8x10 cropped headshot which will serve as a great digital profile photograph. The event photography will be delivered via digital download. All photos taken that meet our quality standard, for the entirety of the AWD Conference will be delivered. This ensures as you are marketing for the AWD event for 2024, your team will have a plenty of photos to choose from.
