Corporate Headshot Photography London
A great staple of the professional photographer's skill set is the ability to produce high quality and business like corporate headshot photography for my clients and I enjoy looking after these requests very much. But it's also refreshing and often challenging when a business customer wants something a little different. Not too leftfield perhaps but enough just to make the session more fun for colleagues and the business portraits a little different to the norm.
I recently had the pleasure of accepting one such brief so packed my cameras and lights and headed into Canary Wharf to meet the team. As with most corporate headshot photography time is not something I will be given much of so it is imperative for a photographer such as myself to have gained a total understanding of the type of session required in advance and importantly planned exactly how I can set up and get shooting without interrupting the businesses I visit.
Having a full understanding of the style of imagery, the location and the people I would be shooting on this visit I was able to deliver exactly what the client wanted without impacting on the needs of the office that day. The client had indicated they wanted the photography to be less formal, not standard corporate headshot photography so I had chosen my location and lighting before hand with great care. As you can see from the resulting images they clearly are professional business headshots but with a bit more flair and originality. Showing the team off to the wider world of partners and customers with a softer, more fun vibe.
This doesn’t mean that the traditional business corporate headshot photography is not right for modern commerce but certainly these slightly more engaging corporate shots show that one can get a bit more character in to professional images whilst also allowing the no doubt very hard working individuals to let their hair down for a while. Not too long though......
