Wow, this is an awesome company photo of Kojima Productions. You'd probably know them best for making the Metal Gear series of games.
I've been staring at the photo for a bit too, trying to deconstruct the lighting they used. Lots of back lighting, as you can see from the slight shadows on the ground. You can also tell from the hair highlights. I'm not quite sure if all of the background lights were there originally or were purposely placed there for the lighting flare, I'm guessing that they were purposely placed. Either way, awesome. :D
Speaking of which, I was asked a few months back to do our company group photos. Here's a couple of the better ones. I still suck at doing groups, but practice makes perfect. :> This is one of the more casual ones and our whole group.
