Professional staff business headshots
Adaptavist; a software technology company with offices across the world, contacted me from their London office asking me about business headshots. There were 80 staff to photograph (some can be seen here) and all needed their headshot taken on a specific date. Naturally it is difficult to get everyone together on the same day what with busy business schedules, so it was important that I was able to get all the headshot photos in one go.
London isn’t exactly down the road for me, but a rate was agreed and plans were made. This involved a 4:30am wake up for me and as it turned out, due to terrible London traffic (mostly 1st and 2nd gear!), a 6 hour journey to Adaptavist’s new London office in Islington. Setup for the headshots took about 40 minutes and then each person’s name was written on a list, and ticked off as we went. The amount of time business headshots take depends on if the client has very specific requirements and the availability of the staff at the time of the shoot. In this instance all the staff were onsite all day and I was able to take the headshots quickly. It took around a minute for each headshot with minimal adjustment to lighting in between photos (due to differences in height). I gave Adaptavist a choice of two background tones, but essentially pretty much any background colour could be chosen as long as notice is given before the photo shoot.
If you require business headshots for your company, I’d be happy to help. Lighting can be adjusted to suit your requirements and I can capture a relaxed fresh look or a more corporate feel depending on your requirements.
