Corporate portraits are an important part of your online presence. Whether they’re for a Linkedin profile, Social Media, Website’s about Page or PR. Communication has gone digital and putting a face to a name makes it personal. So what are your options when book a business portrait session? The most obvious choice is a corporate headshot against a white background. It’s easy and clean and will work well in most layouts. This is why it is by far the most popular choice and a quick look on your linkedin connection will prove that. For some professionals it makes sense to do shoot more than a headshot. Business profile photos rarely need to show a person from head to toe, but top half shots can show a bit more character and stand out from the crowd. Choosing a different background can set you apart from the rest too. It’s very important to keep…
Portrait photography in Hampstead
The photography brief was: Keep it personal and unique. The business: Music therapy in Hampstead North London. The idea of welcoming clients into an honest, creative environment was translated into these photos. I like the fact that they are different from most business shots and reveal a lot about the sitters.
I photographed Vicky and Chloe for their blog in Holland Park. They had a lot of ideas and we exchanged several emails with references as well as talking and discussing ideas. There’s always a question of where to shoot as the process of transforming ideas into production takes place. What I love about photography is that you get more than what you planned and new ideas you never originally thought of present themselves.
This sofa shot was one of Vicky and Chloe’s ideas and it took some time to get right, but once it was right they both looked stunning! Jumping shots are not easy to pull with high heels (so I am told) But it’s was easy for this power duo, who are also happen to be very good at yoga
I hope you’ve enjoyed these photographs. If you would like to discuss any upcoming…
I spent a couple of days with Aging2.0 photographing their hackathon on Ageless Travel. The event was an eye opener, with young techies working alongside senior experts to improve travel for the older generation. The growth in older population is will change the economy and what Age2.0 is working at is to help business tackle this. Developers and entrepreneurs had less than 48 hours to come up with solid ideas that will improve travel for older people They presented their concepts, often with working prototypes, to the crowd and judges
Professional corporate portraits can vary from the standard white background headshot. It is true that your Linkedin profile photo needs to convey professionalism, but this doesn’t mean you have to look like everyone else. Depending on your field and how you prefer to market yourself you can go for a friendly, less formal photo that can show more than just head & shoulders. Corporate headshots are absolutely fine, you just have to make sure they don’t look like a portrait from 1989. Things have moved on a bit… There are not absolute wrong or rights but you do want good eye contact and focus on top half (there’s usually no point in full length photos ). These two photos display a different take on corporate portraits. One was shot in the studio, the other in the client’s office. The generous crop allows for a bit more character and stand…
It’s always nice to see my work out in the world. This week the Guardian is using a photo I took of Yiddish Twist Orchestra. The band is getting some great reviews for the new album. The portrait was taken in Holborn studios, a place full of history and character and perfect match for the guys.
We enjoyed photographing a boutique networking event at L’ESCARGOT restaurant yesterday. The call for the job came in the morning, the event was a few hours later and we managed to supply the images by the end of the day! Having worked in this industry for a while ,we are used to last minute calls and technically challenging situations. Some images from the event will be displayed soon.
