WHEN HAVING CORPORATE PORTRAIT PHOTOGRAPHY IT’S IMPORTANT TO GET A VARIETY OF IMAGES

From my experience as a professional corporate portrait photographer I can tell you when you book your corporate portrait photography, it’s vital to ensure you have a variety of images.

Corporate photography is vital to every company in today’s digital world. All businesses are highly visible now thanks to websites and social media. And since people now are looking for authenticity and connection in their business dealings, portraits of employees are an important feature of most websites.

However when commissioning corporate portrait photography, many companies simply produce a simple brief for a headshot. You might have a vision of how the ‘About’ page of the website should look. For example, you may plan for simple head and shoulders portraits against a plain grey or white background. And this is fine, if that’s the look of your site. But why stop there with your corporate portrait photography?

What about having a variety of images for use social media and blogs? And what if you ever need to re-jjg your website? Or if you are asked to submit some images for another digital directory as happened recently with one of our clients? (They hadn’t made any contingency for that to happen so we had to set up new photoshoots to capture a little more variety. Which meant additional time and unnecessary expense.) Not ideal for any business!

How to future proof your corporate portrait photography

So when briefing your corporate portrait photographer, be sure that you ask them to go beyond the typical head and shoulders shot. Get some waist and above shots and even 3/4 length portraits. And it’s worth getting a variety of backgrounds, eg. white and grey. Whatever variety you can achieve in your photoshoot’s allotted time.

In a typical headshot photoshoot with me, you would have white background, grey background and shots with bookcases. And I recommend that we do head and shoulders, waist and 3/4 length shots. We change up backgrounds too and are happy to headshots seated on a sofa or chairs. The more variety, the better! And this young man featured below now has a variety of images for his website and social media. And that’s good for business.

If you are ready to take control of your company’s image with some fantastic new corporate headshots, I would love to help. You can email me on serena@serenabolton.com, ring me on 07958511819 or click to book a Zoom or telephone conversation.

Firstly, the photographer have the set up for teh shot right. It might be that they need to move some furniture, set up a backdrop, reposition items which might be in the way, etc.
