    Did some shots for the owner of a company that has been selected for the top 100 fastest growing Aggie-owned businesses...won't know if he's number 1 or 100 or somewhere in between for a while though :)

    just wanted to know your thoughts on these. he chose one I didn't expect him to choose, so I'd like to know what yall think...

    here are a few:

    1)

    5) (I did this edit more for my own use, so it's not really 'business-ish')

    I think theyre all superb apart from number 2, in which I'm not keen on his posture..

    Other than that I think they're all amazing, especially the last one :D

    I really like #1 the best. He appears to be a caring and less harsh. I agree that 2B is better than #2. I also really like the last even though it's not as business like.

    I like #1 because of the lighting and the angle in which it was taken.

    thanks for the comments everyone!

    Normally I'd agree with you, but there is a huge amout of school pride and honor associated with Aggie rings, and since it's for an aggie contest/publication, i figured it would be a nice touch.

    Love love love number 1.

    That one is the "hey, I am a nice business owner, but I am stern and set"...

    Number 4 is also great, but it is more of a "I own this business dammit, and I
    will do what I want with it!" kinda pose. :)
