During the last twelve months I have been getting more and more requests to do corporate headshots for different businesses throughout London which is great because I really enjoy doing them! All the shoots require a different mindset to shooting events or conferences. It also needs a different type of planning with logistics and making sure the right equipment is taken along for the shoot. Each client has a different brief in mind but it mostly involves setting up a portable studio within a office environment and then shooting the portraits in-between meetings & emails.
For my photographer friends I took these recent portraits with my Profoto D1s and a photek softlighter as a main light source which is much easier to set up than a softbox! I like using reflectors as well so I normally use two or three reflectors to fill in the shadows or shade off the backdrop.
Most of the time I shoot tethered to a laptop so the client can see their portraits coming through and it is a good way of building confidence & trust. When I get back to the office I process the final selection on a carbilcated screen and process/upload the files onto a online gallery where the client can easily download/share their final portraits. The shoot and the post production of the final selection of portraits is normally done within 24 hours if the shoot happens during the working week.
Here is a few examples of what I have done recently and you can contact me here if you need a new Linkedln or corporate headshot …
