Your headshot is important – it represents your brand, your business and you.
Headshots work for you every day on Linked IN and the other social media channels, your website, in print and at every touch point the world has with you.
So it’s worth a little thought about what you want!
To help, we’ve found that there are 3 main styles which work for a business:-
- location shots
- plain background
- action shots
You see each every day and we can help create each for you – here are a few examples to help guide you.
Ideal for people wanting a unique, fresh and modern look to their images.
These will be taken in places like:-
- office atriums with big open spaces
- near to iconic structures like a city hall
- in the office car park!
- next to an interesting textured wall
The main goal is to use the background to create something new – the same location will look different at different times of day and weather conditions, so you really do get something unique.
We are experts at location shoots and can shoot literally anywhere legal to get the shots you’d like.
Plain background shots
Clean and versatile for all uses – the classic
White is most popular for these as they blend into most websites and social media sites quickly, cleanly and effectively. They are less popular than a few years ago and we don’t tend to do as many of these as clients prefer the Location look.
We would typically just need a meeting room in your office to set this up – we need room for 3 or 4 light stands and for the colleague to stand. We then just photograph each person, one by one, throughout the day – some take just a couple of minutes, others need time to chat and relax – which we’re always happy to do.
Show people doing what they do, where and how they do it
These images are more informal and fun, yet give a feel for your company’s ethos and values. It shows not only the person but the environment they work in – great for a busy office and tight teams as well as people working in factories and crafts.
They are the least disruptive for your team as they just carry on doing what they are doing – rather than standing in a room feeling nervous.
To create these we go around the room photographing each colleague, in turn, placing 2 lights around them to give that professional studio feel.
Whatever you like
We like to shoot location most – it’s more fun and creative from a photography point of view – and people usually relax more as it feels informal. But whatever your need for your brand, we can create your team a great new set of consistent, stunning new images.
