In order to take exceptional corporate headshots, you need a great location to take the photos, right? Wrong. Technology is such now that it does not matter if you are in a cramped office space filled with clutter, corporate photography can capture photos that are slick and professional no matter what the backdrop. Here’s how.
Professional office photography vs in the studio
There is a common misconception that to generate exceptional, professional corporate photography it must take place in the studio. There may be some people who might feel more comfortable in a studio environment but the vast majority of business people have a full calendar and taking time out from their role is challenging. When photography takes place at your place of work, the shoot can be arranged at the convenience of the subjects in an environment that is completely familiar and comfortable. We effectively deliver studio quality corporate headshots London to your offices.
It’s not only about ensuring there is no office clutter on show, there are a whole range of options that can be inserted post production. Whether it’s a colour that reflects a well known brand or company values that they wish to have in the finished images, anything is possible. It may be that you wish for your logo or the company building to form the background. State of the art technology ensures retouching photographs deliver a result that does not look superimposed; the quality is such that the subject appears to be standing in that location. The other benefits to being able to do this post production editing is that the subject can be photographed in any environment utilising professional lighting which would be challenging outdoors.
The City of London
Nothing is more historic than the sky line of the nation’s capital. Whether it is buildings such as the Gherkin, St Pauls cathedral, the Shard or the Walkie Talkie they are all synonymous with London. It’s no wonder many top financial institutes desire these as a backdrop for their corporate photography. Whilst we can shoot on site at any one of these locations, we are of course at the mercy of the British weather. The good news is that technology allows us to photograph these iconic structures in their best light and insert them as background to your team photography post production.
Post production work
It’s therefore evident that corporate photography has moved on from studio based static images and location is largely irrelevant. What this means now is that the shoot on the day is only half the process. The post production editing work opens up a whole raft of possibilities that meet the desires of our clients. Most businesses have some awareness of software such as photoshop but the reality is that modern photography has a whole wealth of technology that can be used. This is not just about being able to freshen up the appearance of a person, it means we can get rid of anything that appears in the background that a business does not want.
