I'm relatively new to corporate head shots but having been asked for a few recently I've taken the time to investigate what I like and don't like about what's currently on offer. To be honest, as a professional portrait photographer, not many have the quality that an executive deserves. So I set out to create a style that I think is not only current, but also depicts a strong and confident individual which would serve well, many executive teams.
Together myself and another local photographer, Lee Glasgow, worked to create my vision of a corporate head shot.
I'll be using this new lighting setup next week with my next corporate client when they visit me for portraits for their directors. When I discussed with them their needs and what they were looking for I was told they already had photos taken they were unhappy with. Having looked at those images and having listened to the description of how they would like their team protrayed I think this style will suit their needs nicely. So now instead of worrying about whether I'll do an appropriate job, I feel confident that I am well prepared. I can't wait to work with them next week.
This is yet another example of how a professional photographer gives so much more than just the photo session the client sees. There is actually so much work behind the scenes that clients never see but I hope realise when they see the professional job I carry out.
