corporate photoshoot on location in London

London Corporate Photoshoot

London’s Streets provide perfect locations for a corporate photoshoot

Surely no city is as perfect as London for conducting a corporate photoshoot. Paris may be more beautiful and Rome more ancient. But London is a collection of little neighbourhoods, each with a different personality and flavour. And each looks completely different! You could not mistake the City for the West End, nor Soho for Mayfair. And yet central London is pretty condensed so you can walk (or scoot or cycle) between one neighbourhood and another easily. Finding little street corners, nooks, crannies. And, given our less than clement climate, shelter from the rain in awnings and arcades.

Which is why I like to get my corporate photoshoots out of the office and onto the streets. That’s because these days, not as many companies wish to have grey background headshots as before. Instead, they are happy to see a little dynamism in the portraits. And to add a little personality and character to the images.

And, depending on where the photoshoot is held, imbue their business with a little of the flavour of the location. For example, being in Lincoln’s Inn Fields or the law courts lends gravitas to law firms. While Soho provides a more funky, urban edge. And the salubrious streets of Mayfair signal discreet wealth; the rooftops of the City, financial success.

So don’t assume that your corporate headshot photoshoot needs to take place in the office. ‘Or that an outdoor photoshoot is unfeasible due to bad weather. A good photographer will find a way of getting the shots and projecting the image you require.

I’m so lucky to live and work in a city so rich in diversity of architecture and character. And while I do have favourite places to return to for my shoots, especially in the West End, I’m always happy to brand out to new area. Next week I will be shooting in Barbican and Docklands, which are new for me. I’ll be sure to share the results.

In the meantime, read my blog on looking your best for your corporate photography.
