Ready for your corporate closeup? 11:44 Studios elevates ‘headshots’ to portrait quality

Upgrade your company’s online image while introducing your team with portraits that capture your organization’s values and mission.

Associations, law firms, nonprofits, and businesses of all sizes looking to update the images on their website, marketing, and social media platforms to a more modern and sleek design could do no better than to work with a photography studio that has legendary musicians in their portfolio. Such as? Fleetwood Mac drummer Mick Fleetwood, Aerosmith’s Steven Tyler, Van Halen’s Sammy Hagar, and hip-hop icon CeeLo Green.

Meet the artists behind 11:44 Studios, a full-service photography studio in Old Town, Alexandria offering on-site photography services, concept planning, artistic design, mood board creation, wardrobe styling, digital asset management, retouching, image selection, and more.

Many local photographers shoot “headshots” for corporate use. Sarah Sharaf-Eldien and the team at 11:44 Studios prefer to call their work portraits, and rightly so, expressing the enhanced elements their images deliver.

Businesses, entrepreneurs, freelancers and others seeking to elevate their online and printed imagery will find 11:44 Studios’ work takes their public-facing image to new levels of polished professionalism.

“In each portrait we artistically convey as much relevant information about our subjects; hints about their character, the work they do, or the world they inhabit,” Sharaf-Eldien says, and they do so with a level of efficiency and attention to detail not normally found in corporate portrait photography.

“Sarah does an amazing job,” says Susan Cantrell, CEO of AMCP, the Academy of Managed Care Pharmacy, in Alexandria. “She spent two days in our office doing headshots of our staff and they are amazing. She even brought in hair and makeup artists. We are so pleased with the excellent work.”

If you had a chance to enhance a child’s future with a time commitment of less than 2 hours a week, how would you respond? You have that opportunity right now to join over 200 Alexandrians as a reading tutor volunteer with the Alexandria Tutoring Consortium (ATC).

ATC tutors work with one child in kindergarten, first, or second grade in Alexandria public schools who need extra help with reading. Tutors meet with their Book Buddy 1-2 times each week for 30 minutes October-May at school, during school hours. Many struggling readers only receive one-on-one instruction through this program, and it makes all the difference. Last year, ATC served 195 children, of whom 82% ended the year reading on grade level and 96% made substantial reading gains. But the need is great, and we are still seeing learning lags from the pandemic.

This year, ATC plans to significantly increase the size of the program to reach over 250 students and to serve every elementary school in Alexandria. This is very exciting news, but we will only succeed if we can recruit more tutors. ATC trains you, matches you with a child, and provides ongoing lesson materials and support.
