You may remember that recently, I was asked by the guys at SimpleClick to refresh their headshots, in readiness for their rebrand by Ziska Design & Marketing. Following this, I was asked back to capture a series of commercial photographs that captured the essence of their team, for them to use throughout the new website and well as giving them them a stock photo gallery which they could dip into, from time to time for social media and PR use.
This shoot was so much fun! I recently had the pleasure of linking up with the fundraising team at Age UK Suffolk, for their new headshots.
I recently had the pleasure of meeting up with fellow photographer Jeff Turnbull, a fantastic wedding and lifestyle photographer from Essex, for a personal branding session.
Jeff was looking to replenish his bank of personal branding images, in order to bring them up to date and refresh them for ongoing social media and web marketing use.
Through the work I do with local businesses, providing headshot photography, it's natural to engage in conversation around the challenges that both their businesses and the businesses of others, they work alongside.
When planning your new business headshots, as well as considering your wardrobe ahead of time, hair and make-up is a topic which also comes up a lot when talking to clients.
Of course, everyone wants to look their very best in photographs. Especially their business headshots as they want them to represent their personal brand or business, in the very best light.
One of the questions I get asked most, once a client has booked in their Headshot Experience with me, is a really great one to dive into today:
What should I wear for my headshot session?
You know, it really depends on what line of business you are in and what you would like your finished headshots to convey. I recommend that you bring up to two changes of clothes, perhaps wearing one on arrival and one to change into, mid-session, each of which being different styles.
I recently had the pleasure of photographing the owner and colleagues of stylish independent fashion retailer, Urban Vintage who are based in Ipswich, Suffolk.
To encompass the brand of the store in their photography, I opted for edgy side-lit portraits which look great when shooting guys, for a strong, masculine look.
