Staff Headshot Photography

I regularly shoot staff headshot photography for company websites, LinkedIn profiles, intranets and other uses. Most often I do this by visiting a client’s office, and can bring equipment so we can create studio type images against a plain background, or I can use the office environment and natural light if that works better. I’m happy to consult with you to get the look you need. I can also liaise with your web designer to get things right.

Here are some examples of my staff headshot photography, showing a range of clients and different types of images. I aim for consistency across each set of staff images.

In a day I can photograph up to 60 people, and I’ve photographed headshots for up to 250 staff over a period of several days. I also regularly work with smaller companies with as few as three staff. I’m happy to give you some advice on the best way to organise the shoot.

All I need to create staff headshot photography at your office is a room to work in. A large meeting room works best, but I’m pretty adaptable to any space. If you have good natural light and a characterful office, that works well. We can also use the environment around your office, or set up a studio in a room.

I take the same approach to staff headshot photography as I do to all my work and try to make the person I’m photographing enjoy the session, even in we only have a few minutes together. One of the most enjoyable challenges of my job is to create a good photo of someone who’s having a bad day in the office!

Band Photography Shoot

Robin from the a band called the Many Few contacted me because they had an idea about a styled musician photography shoot for their band. As well as photography they wanted help with choosing a location, so I sent Robin a few ideas and we settled on the October Gallery. It has a great room with a club / library feel that suited the look they were going for.

The band styled themselves with monocles, waistcoats and pocket watches and we went for a vintage ‘psychiatrists couch’ kind of look. A 2 hour shoot, resulted in 10 images that the band picked. I edited the photos to give them a vintage look, and here are a few of the final shots from their band shoot:

LinkedIn Headshot Photographer | Update Your Photo In 2019

Are you looking for LinkedIn Headshot Photographer to update your profile photo for 2019 and beyond?

Would you like that photo to make you look credible, approachable and very employable?

What if the process of getting the shot done was painless and actually quote enjoyable?

Not all LinkedIn Profile Photography is created equal. The images can be created in my studio or at your office, and I often create LinkedIn headshots for whole companies so they can have consistency across their staff, or I work with individuals who want to improve their image online if they are looking for a job or trying to further their career.

Usually individual people go for a 45 minute headshot session which results in 5 final images, or I can go into an office for a half or full day.

Everyone is unique and everyone hates having their profile photo taken, so the session is about establishing what type of images will work best for you and then going about creating that. Sometimes I get the shot in the first 10 minutes, and other times it take a little longer for me to work with the client to create headshot photos that will make them look good on LinkedIn and other social networks.

You can also go for  a longer session so that we can create some nice headshots plus another set of more relaxed and informal portrait photos that you can use for whatever other purposes you need. It’s often a good idea to have a bank of great portrait photos so you can use them if you’re speaking at a conference, writing an article or being featured in a magazine. Each of these will have different requirements for the image you use, and having a choice will help you make the best impression.

LinkedIn Headshots can be created during your lunchtime or after work if you’re pushed for time.

The cost of the session is £125. Send me a message to get started.

London Photography – Barristers, Hypnotherapists, Opera Singers and More…

It’s been a busy couple of months. Lots of variety and interesting clients.

In December and January I spent 3 days photographing barristers in the chambers of 11 Kings Bench Walk. They will be using the images on their redesigned website. Coincidently, I also photographed another barrister in my studio.

It’s not only been barristers though. I took photos of a hypnotherapist in her therapy room in Clapham, and worked for a number of personal clients.

Then I had the pleasure of shooting Denis Lakey. He’s an opera singer living in Germany who’s super dapper and just a really fun person to work with. He loves his shoes so one of his shots had to incorporate them!

One of the perks of my job is the musicians who play their instruments in my studio. That happened when I photographed a student from the Guildhall Music School. I was lucky enough to hear Yuriko play while we got some great shots.

And then I shot a new band who are all studying at the British Institute of Modern Music (BIMM).
