My press photography background has set me up perfectly for this type of work as much of its people-based (i.e. charming people into doing things for the camera that they wouldn’t normally do!)I love photographing people and even though some of the things I have to photograph them doing may seem fairly boring, the mark of a good photographer is someone who can get a visually interesting picture out of a mundane subject. There are great pictures to be had everywhere from call-centres to warehouses – if you know what you are looking for. I enjoy interacting with people and it never ceases to amaze me what I can get people to do when I have a camera in my hand!I often have to take photographs to fit specific shapes or to leave specific areas blank to allow for cover lines etc. Again, my extensive experience is invaluable when clients have very exacting requirements.
Business portraits have always been popular and there will always be a need to have a great corporate portrait if you want to portray your business and your staff as professionals to be taken seriously. After all, how many times have you seen a really dreadful portrait of someone on LinkedIn and instantly discounted them as not being serious about their business? First impressions really do count and you never get a second chance to make a great first impression.
Studio-lit business portraits with bright white backgrounds are very popular these days as they look modern and fresh and they can easily be used on business cards and websites too. I can bring my portable studio to your office for minimal disruption for your staff. Other background colours can be used if white is not for you. Environmental portraiture is currently very popular too. This is where people are photographed in their working environment to either show what they are doing or just as head and shoulders shots, putting the background out of focus (which still gives a hint of their working environment).
