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.

Photographing Portraits of Trustee's The King Henry VIII Endowed Trust in Warwick

Henry8thTrustees-3-of-47

The King Henry VIII Endowed Trust founded in 1545 is an ancient trust that shares the income from the Old Town of Warwick to help the community. For hundreds of years it has been contributing to the upkeep of our churches and enabled our best and brightest to attend Warwicks public schools. In September I was asked to Business Portraits of the Trustees to be used for a new website that is still under development.  I was honoured to be asked to do this work, as usual with all portraits I have done for all types of organisations I had very little time allowed with each person to get the job done. 

I decided to go with a low key style lighting set up that created portraits that are a bit more interesting than standard white background portraits.

Staff Portraits Warwickshire

staffportraits-12-of-16

 

Between September and November 2016 I was tasked with providing staff portraits photographing over forty staff for a veterinary company based in Warwickshire and Worcestershire. 

My client wanted relaxed but a uniform style of portrait, I approached the task by agreeing a basic style of portrait that would be used for all the staff at all locations, six practices all with varying amounts of free space within each to set up and do the portrait photography. 

Over the course of three day's I worked out of an X-Ray Theatre, a broom cupboard, an operating theatre and cramped staff rooms with all spaces having different coloured walls and ambient temperatures.  It was difficult to get the portraits to be exactly the same as I would have been able to if they were all taken in my studio but I am pleased with the results. 

I also did some exterior and interior action photography for some operations taking place for a few of the practices at the request of my client. Overall it was a fun project getting to meet all of the staff of the business and see some cute animals as well.

Company Business Portraits Warwickshire

BusinessPortraits-2-of-6

Earlier in the summer I was approached by a local firm of solicitors who needed business portraits of all their staff, with two offices and twenty staff I needed to make two visits to there main office. One visit to photograph the majority of staff and another to capture the remaining staff and reshoot anybody who didn't like there portraits from the first visit. 

My brief for the project was simply to create business portraits of the staff that were of good quality and I could have just gone for standard white background portraits but I prefer to tailor my work to each client. Are talking over the ideas I had with Mark the senior partner we decided on a style that was a bit more artistic.

Graduation Photography Warwick University

I always enjoy new challenges and opportunities, earlier this month I was employed by a family to photograph their daughters graduation at Warwick University.

This being my first job doing graduation photography, I did a bit of research which told me that graduation photography is usually traditional posed photographs in front of a screen. Which is kind of boring but necessary for photographing hundreds of graduates with their degree certificates and not everyone is able to have there own professional photographer. 

Drawing on my experience with wedding photography I was able to take pictures of the main ceremony, family and friends groups as well as some fun, natural portraits. In the ceremony it was very dark but we the right camera settings and a combination of the right vantage point I was able fulfill my clients brief. Outside it was a very dull cloudy day,  to counter the dull conditions I gave the pictures a warmer sunnier look.

Business Portraits Warwickshire

We live in an increasingly visual world where the creation of business portraits to see what people look like is very useful for job applications, business profiles or on websites.

However, most people are not comfortable having their photograph taken, almost 100% of customers I meet say they do not like having their photograph taken. This creates a challenge for photographers which is met by creating good conversation to take the customers your mind off the photography to create relaxed portraits, which is one of my favourite parts of the job is being able to chat with people from all sections of society.

This is week I've created two business portraits one for a lecturer at Warwick University who wanted an updated picture for his course web page and a lady who required a portrait for a job application.
