It's important that your headshot be a reflection of who you are, what you do, or possibly a style you wish to convey. At Galen Ducey Photography we don't just get the shot, we share with your audience the strengths that you command and dreams that carry you.
Will is a focused and driven business man. His auto body shop is a small family business focused on doing right by their customer and keeping families safe. My goal for capturing dramatic images of his shop and services was to give him the visual aids to educate his clients. To show them the extensive unseen work that it takes to rebuild and repair your vehicle. There is so much training, knowledge, and skill that goes into fixing these complex machines we often take for granted.
So often we assume an auto body shop just bends the damaged car back into it's original shape or slaps a little mud into the dents - a little paint, and voila! Not the case for Will. At Wills Auto Body, bringing the vehicle back to the safety standards your car was originally designed the car for is paramount. Yes, the car will look cosmetically perfect when he's done. More importantly, the car will behave with all the intended safety features if God forbid, you get hit by another car. Todays vehicles are made of special metal alloys, many of which aren't intended to be bent and re-bent or heated and welded. If your car doesn't react to a blow by crumpling in just the right way, then that blow is transmitted to the passenger compartment. To keep their clients safe, Will & his team have extensive training on how to handle and repair today's high tech steel and achieve that sweet spot where the car is neither too robust or too frail, each of which compromises the safety of a driver and the passengers.
Is it strange that we at Galen Ducey Photography love this photo below? It's an Audi SUV being repaired. This image shows a hydraulic puller arm strong enough to torque certain metals back into place. Think of what needed to be done to disassemble the car to this point, putting it all back to gather must be mind boggling.
When we were asked to create content for Berkeley Dog & Cat Hospital's website, it was clear that there were so many moving parts that made this business a success. To tell their story of compassion, candor, and courage - it was both rewarding and humbling.
From exotic birds to chinchillas, stray cats to abused pets - this team is on the front line of keeping our beloved fur-babies healthy and happy.

Everywhere we turned, the staff at BD&C were comforting the sick and injured. Hand feeding, wrapping in towels, and tending to their patients comforts the technicians, doctors, and care givers were easing the nerves of the animals they were entrusted with.
