Shoot Locations

We have chosen locations based on their photographic potential, we want your images to really stand out and where we do them is important. 

Shoots are in :-

  • Croft Myl, Halifax HX1 2EQ
  • Glyde House, Little Horton Ln, Bradford, BD5 0BQ

What do you wear?

The photos are for your personal brand, website, social media and PR. 

We recommend that you wear what your ideal client would expect you to see. It’s how you want to be seen. A mix of formal and casual is ideal as it covers all bases, so variety is important on the day – so maybe think about:-

  • Different tops you can change into – one more formal, one relaxed 
  • Different coloured scarves or ties which you can quickly swap between scenes

These are quick to do which is important in a 2-hour session. If you do want a complete change of look, we’ll be doing the office shoot first, then the individual shots after – so come dressed for meetings and you can get changed when we’ve finished in there. 

Stuff to bring

  • Anything with your brand – pens, mugs, mouse mats…. a friendly photo could be you holding a coffee cup with your logo on. 
  • Notepad for the meeting
  • iPad or laptop if you use these in meetings
  • Phone – a shot of you on the phone can be useful for “contact” pages 

On the day…

A typical shoot day would be:-

Meeting room

  • Chatting around the table – get to know each other and exchange business cards if you like. 
  • Take turns to “chair” the meeting  
  • Presenting to the group – less scary than it sounds, you just need to stand next to a board, smile, point and move around a bit. 

Break Out Area

  • Our locations have lots of great break out areas to do 1-2-1 meetings.
  • We finish on Head-shots, you’ll be used to the camera by now and relaxed enough to look really natural, so we’ll take turns in a variety of spaces to get a variety of head shots for you all. 

After the shoot

  • I’ll go through and choose the best shots from the session – there may be a few hundred!
  • I’ll put unedited and watermarked versions on DROPBOX for you to choose from. 
  • You tell me the ones you want – you get 5 with the package, you can invest in more if you like. 
  • I’ll edit these and send them to an individual dropbox for you
  • Get using them! 

How many photos can I have?

The package comes with 5 images for £49

If you want to have more images, they are £10 each with normal editing (see below)

What “Editing” is included?

Editing for these photo-shoots  includes:-

  • Colour correction – white balance (warm/cold)
  • Contrast – punchy or faded
  • Brightness – we take time to get the bright and dark areas balanced 
  • Crop – we cut the edges of the photo to get only the best bits of the photo
  • Toning – we can add colours to the image to give a pastel or punchy look
  • Vignette – dark or light edges of the photo

Here is an example – the left photo is straight from the camera and what you’ll see as a “preview”. 

The first photo has had colour, toning, contrast and crop changes to make the photo “pop” out of the screen. 

What is “extra”?

Anything not included above is more advanced “Retouching” and not included. This includes things like skin smoothing, eye brightening and teeth whitening

For example, in this following photo we have retouched the eyes, teeth, skin, shirt and background. 

If you do have any retouching requirements, we’re happy to help, retouching starts at an additional £10 per image. It may be just 1 photo you need polishing, or a whole set. 

Time

The shoot is planned to be 2 hours so it doesn’t disrupt your busy schedule – 10:00-12:00 or 14:00-16:00

Payments

We’ve used EVENTBRITE who will handle the payments – please note that this is the only payment mechanism available for these events.

Payment is made on booking and is non-refundable. 

Cancellations

Whilst we understand your business commitments may mean you have to cancel your attending, we still need a group of 6 people to create the scenarios. 

In the first instance, if you can find a substitute to come in your place, we are happy for them to attend. You can either gift them the place, or pass the fee on to them. 

If a substitute cannot be found, we cannot offer any refunds or transfers to other dates as our costs remain constant whether you attend or not.

A few photos of the location… 

I can’t recommend Ade highly enough.

He has recently taken my third set of profile pictures, and this time there was a team of seven requiring authentic head shots, plus a team shot. Reducing the very many photos down to a shortlist was really very tricky, but we have all come out with at least three different profile pictures as well as a selection of team shots which can be used on our website. Ade did a sterling job of putting everyone at ease, even those of the team who weren’t so comfortable in front of the camera. The result is a great suite of shots, with good variety, well-lit and really showing the authentic personalities of the people in them. If you need a photographer – whether that’s for your people, your building or your food (yep, he also does food photography) I suggest you get in quick because he’ll be booked up very soon!

Ade is an absolute superstar!

I’ve met him at a few events through mutual contacts and he did some new headshots for me a couple of weeks ago. I hate seeing photos of myself, but he did such a great job that I struggled to choose the final selection. He’s a genuinely lovely person and so good at putting you at ease from the off. Highly recommended.

Adrian did an amazing job for us for our company rebrand. During our rebrand process from Mike Designs to Apogii, Adrian’s photography has both reflected our repositioning and helped inform the new look we wanted. Adrian’s work during a single photo-shoot generated many highly professional and edgy images, creating a library of work we can use for a long time to come. His approach put us at our ease while directing with an eye on the final images. We were informed by Adrian throughout the process of what he was doing and why and we had a great time on the shoot and love our new photos.
