When a mobile phone photo just doesn’t do it
Brands are important, head shots are part of your branding.
Contemporary portraits for today’s branding, casting and social media needs. We can and do change how a person is conveyed through different approaches in lighting, poise and composition. We are creating a photo for you, not of you.
Part of my approach is in coaching our clients, helping them to achieve the photo they want.
We strive to capture you at your best: whether in the studio or on location, creating an image that will advance your career and promote you and your brand.
We photograph doctors, dentists, accountants, executives, club executives, businesses, management teams, theatrical, actors, professionals and enjoy interacting with the people we photograph in my personal studio based in Lanark. Those who have sat for me know we are observing and listening to them. Our aim is to capture an image of who you are as a person.
Why would a company need head shot photography for business and what is wrong with a quick snap of an employee?
A business invests in their look, from the website to printed materials yet ignore lack luster images of key personnel.
Outstanding head shot photography for business and commercial clients who see their staff as key to their brand and work ethos.
You may want a less official style of image to connect with your client base but less formal doesn’t mean low quality.
Your staff are reluctant to have their photographs taken, coaching goes a long way with connecting your staff with your clients and customers.
Budgets don’t allow for professional headshots, it’s part of your marketing strategy and should be in any marketing campaign.
The disruption to business having head shots would cause issues. Professional head shot photography is remarkably quick.
Head shots are not ID photographs they convey the personality of the person and should project the image of the business.
Social media is important to our business and staged headshots don’t fit with social media well, this may be true but they are representing your business they are not representing themselves. LinkedIn profiles are your client facing business credentials.
Planning head shot photography for business isn’t high on your agenda it may not attract a level of importance within the business. Hiring a professional head shot photographer is key to success, allowing a general photographer to undertake the task although quite capable may not be the best approach. When you are planning the company annual report a lot if focus is on the photographs that support the business it will be seen by shareholders and stakeholders the business website is seen by a much wider audience and should rank on the same level as the annual report.
