Hey everyone, I'm shooting two guys tomorrow who are starting a business together and am having a tough time finding poses to shoot two guys together in a professional way. If anyone had any last minute suggestions or examples it would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!

Posing two guys together is not the hard part. Trying to have the portrait saying something about there business is! Let's have there 1st business location in the back ground even if it's out of focus. Plus you might want to have them dress up appropriate for there type of business as well. If one is taller than the other would be great. I'm sure someone will provide samples! Good luck.

When doing environmental portraits, I try to find more about the people and try to use their work environment to reflect their personalities. So I would shoot the typical stiff formal shot then get a little creative. So them in their environment and them interacting with it.
