Headshot Photographer in Warwickshire & West Midlands

We are a local established headshot photographer in Warwickshire, our studio is located at 1 Market Place in Warwick town centre this position is ideal to serve Warwickshire for location shoots or for studio visits. 

Over the winter we have provided headshots for the staff of a number local and national companies, our service is not just restricted to headshots in our studio or on location.  We can also provide all aspects of corporate photography to a very high standard from people at work images, interior and exterior photography including aerial photography and product photography. 

In December we provided headshots for sixteen solicitors who were visiting a local hotel the Stratford Manor for their annual conference, we were able to bring our studio and backdrops with us and set up in a quiet room away from the rest of the conference to take each business portrait one by one.  I always think it is important to have a private area where people can relax to have their portraits taken away from an audience.   Almost every person I meet when taking headshot portraits complains that they do not like having their picture taken which is why it is so important to make every effort for them to relax. 

In January we visited a medium sized company based in Stratford-upon-Avon to provide headshots for around 20 staff as well people at work images and some interior and exterior photographs.  The company wanted updated headshots of key sales staff but also some casual images of staff members doing work tasks in and around the premises, plus we had also agreed to provide of aerial photographs of the offices but due to the time of year it was decided to use a ground-level image that I enhanced to remove unsightly lamposts and add in a blue sky because it was a very grey day when I visited. 

In March we provided headshots for twelve directors who were visiting the area for a board meeting again we agreed on a look to the images in advance I then took my studio on location finding a quiet area in the hotel to set up and take the portraits. Also in March, I photographed a number of headshots for a local company who decided to send staff to my studio to be photographed on an ad-hoc basis rather than hire me to visit them, this is an ideal solution for companies that have a staff that work remotely to varying schedules that are often difficult to assemble on one day.

Another recent job was to provide a headshots location visit for a media company based in Stratford-upon-Avon, for these images I went for a more relaxed style to suit the relaxed culture of the company. 

Our aim is to provide varied headshot portraits to suit the culture of the business, we offer competitive quotes and are equally happy to work on location, be it a hotel for a conference or offices or here at our studio in Warwick, Warwickshire.  Please contact us for a competitive quote.

Happy New Year from Squire and Squire Photography

Happy New Year from Squire & Squire Photography

Shortly I will be off to Warwick Castle to photograph my last Wedding of 2016 and my second December wedding this year.  First though I thought I'd share a Happy New Year message.

2016 has been an enjoyable year where we've made many new friends / clients in all areas of the business.  February 2017 will be our fifth year anniversary at our studio at 1 Market Place, Warwick and my eighth year as a full time photographer.

 

I feel very privileged to be in the position that I am in and look forward to and wish everyone a very Happy New Year!

Drone Aerial Photography and Video Warwickshire

Aerial_Photos_02

Not a lot of people know that Squire and Squire Photography also has an aerial photography business as well, this is in part due to my obsession with all thing photography, I am fascinated with any application to do with image capture. Also in the beginning it made sense to separate the two businesses because flying UAVS (unmanned aerial vehicles) or drones as they are more popularly was a very specialist activity.   Back in 2010 Dataq Technologies Ltd was one of the few companies to gain a commercial license to fly drones granted by the civil aviation authority. In fact my drone pilots licence was the seventh issued, so my licence number was 007 but is now 0007 because of the expansion of the industry and the trained pilots within it.  However all this market expansion does not mean that we have let our standards slip we are still a professional UAS operator with high quality equipment and procedures.

Aerial photography and surveys has always been our staple we've carried out jobs all over the country including numerous jobs in the centre of London. Recently though we have purchased a new drone that we plan to use for aerial video up to the quality of 4K. We plan to get the full potential out of our new purchase and therefore have some exciting drone video shoots lined up for weddings and events these will be blogged out in due course.

In the meantime please see the images below for some of our best work in aerial photography in Warwickshire and the rest of the UK.

Photographer with CSCS Card

Recently we trained and qualified for an operatives card under the Construction Skills Certification Scheme (CSCS).  This means that we can show a card to prove that we meet the high standard of Health & Safety required to work as a photographer within any UK construction site.

We have our own PPE (Personal Protection Equipment) including high visibility jackets and trousers, hard hats, steel toe cap boots, safety gloves, safety eye wear and ear defenders as well as Chapter 8 compliant vehicle chevrons. 

We can deploy a range of high quality photography equipment for any photography task either from on the ground or in the air. On the ground we have high resolution DSLR's, panoramic heads for creating precision panoramas for surveying work, survey poles for adding scale.  In the sky we can deploy our Remotely Piloted Aircraft System (RPAS) owned by our sister company Dataq Technologies Ltd.  Which holds CAA (Civil Aviation Authority) permission to fly RPAS commercially throughout the United Kingdom.  Our license is number BNUC-S 007-11-02-02/1 a license we have held since 2011.

Before we qualified for the CSCS card we have worked on many construction sites in central London as well as highways projects, but the addition of the card adds to our continued commitment to raising standards and working safely and effectively in commercial and construction environments.
