Bayou scene offers perfect backdrop for Global Compliance Solutions Group blog image
A new Prairieville, La., company that helps clients navigate various aspects of corporate compliance contacted me about a week ago for some help generating an image for its blog page. While there were royalty free images available, Global Compliance Solutions Group owner Jonathan Mellard said he wanted a custom photo with a distinctly Louisiana flair.
GCSG helps clients navigate import, export and customs compliance, environmental, health and safety, anti-bribery/anticorruption (ABAC), drug precursor (DEA) and distilled spirits plant (TTB) compliance.
The company is using a blog to offer expert opinions on compliance management systems, audits, due diligence, regulatory developments and other compliance-related information, and Mellard said he wanted to the image on the page to have an outdoors feel.
So I grabbed my laptop, a notebook, a coffee cup and thermos of hot coffee, and a stylish pen, and headed to a local river with all my camera gear. I set up an old table on a pier and began composing frames to include the water and part of a nearby cypress tree.
I shot various compositions, and Mellard settled on one that really looks great and adds a different look than would have been possible with a standard royalty free image.
