Corporate Photography Website Design

In our last post we wrote about putting video onto our new website and now we are having to look at how we should design the site. We have plenty of help from our website designers and programmers who are a great bunch of people but we have to set out what we require from them to do what they do.

When we first set up the site with WordPress we looked at what other photographers were putting together for their portfolios and noticed that wedding photographers were a few steps ahead of what commercial photographers were doing. We really like the work and website of wedding photographers Jacob and Pauline which is beautifully designed and the content flows well. Also we were impressed by the photography and website design of Andrew Prokos who had a lot of content and information on his site but managed to keep it looking simple and easy to navigate.

In the end we settled on a design which was taken from a news item which we found on the BBC website  Although this had nothing to do with photography as the subject we really were impressed by the design of the pages and how large amounts of imagery and content were easily navigated and information imparted in a simple way. Being able to navigate the entire site by simply scrolling is something we are big fans of and will be moving our site forward with large icon images for each of our corporate photography services and with the smaller scroll strip containing further examples and information about what we offer clients in London.

Lastly we have a corporate video page with live action clips and a scrolling strip moving up and down depending if you want to read the text or watch the video content.

 

 

 

Corporate Video on Photography Website

How we decided to run a corporate video on our London photography website homepage.

We are in the process of revamping our website and our web designers came up with a suggestion to have a video on our homepage showing how we supply our corporate headshot photography services in London.

Although we shoot video for our clients a large percentage of our work is still photography and it felt a little uneasy not have still photographs on our homepage. We decided to put together a video featuring our photographers working with clients in their offices. We also shot some City footage to give the video a sense of location and to show we travel to different areas of London.

We kept the video fairly short as it was to be a quick introduction to our services and was going to be looped on our homepage. We are pleased with the outcome and will be adding it to our website in the near future.

Our only other dilemma was that we had to feature our corporate video services on our site and we did not feel the homepage video was suitable to illustrate this as although it was video it featured us being still photographers.

In the end we put together footage we had shot for clients over recent years and made this our corporate video section on the revamped website. This needed to be more generic footage of meetings, clients talking to camera, graphics we have added to video, corporate offices in use, clients being interviewed, close ups of office working environment and corporate events.

With the advent of professional DSLRs we have the ability to capture good website quality video in tandem with still photography. We have seen clients adding more video to their websites as the cost of commissioning the services is becoming more affordable and easier to show.

London Corporate Event Photographer

Corporate event and conference photography in London is one of our main photographic sectors. Over the recent years we have seen a decline in commissions which is down to our clients spending less on marketing due to the uncertainty surrounding Brexit. Although businesses still have events they are skimping on the professional photography and relying on staff and guests to capture images on phones etc. This is more than evident when we look at press releases from past events and see poorly captured event photos.

To encourage clients to go with a professional corporate photographer at their next event we are offering extra services so they see it as great value at the same rates we always charge. We now offer a corporate events video service which can run parallel to our photographic service. With modern DSLRs we can capture excellent video clips which can easily be used on the company website to illustrate the event to a professional standard. Video clips showing a wide view of the event are excellent along with general clips of people communicating and enjoying listening to business advice. Sound can be captured using professional microphone so you can have a good record of the presentations and the key speakers.

We also offer a corporate headshot service at events and conferences. Often companies have remote workers or international offices and it is only at their events that all these people come together. We can set up or mobile studio and capture your entire company at an event. Ideal for LinkedIn profiles so that you can ensure all your staff and directors have a good corporate portrait to keep things consistent and professional.

To make sure the images are a benefit to the client we offer a online preview gallery and with a secure password so the company can allow guests and staff to view all the images and video and also download to then use the content as part of social media promotions and for advertising the event for next year.

As we have a great team of corporate photographers so we can cover any size event which we have found can be very handy on large day and evening events which can have several speakers in different locations and break out groups happening simultaneously.

Photograph of a key speaker captured in action as he talks to his interested audience. This was taken using a long lens with a good wide aperture so it could work in poor lighting. Events are often lit with a low light to allow for the projectors and stage lighting.
