In today’s media rich business environment, the need to build and manage a professional profile is a fundamental part of corporate communications and marketing. Whether it’s for a conference speaking engagement, an editorial profile in the media or a leadership team page on a website, having a selection of professional portraits is a prerequisite.
A portrait session can take anywhere from fifteen minutes to a couple of hours depending on the requirements and time available. Sometimes it’s squeezed into a break of a board meeting or at the end of a media interview. However for the best results, enough time should be scheduled to allow the subject to relax and enjoy the session. Photographing people requires flexibility and good communication skills in order to get the best from people who may not be accustomed to being in front of the camera.
I have photographed people from all walks of life. My genuine enjoyment and interest in meeting people allows me to quickly connect with and gain the trust of my subjects. Few people look forward to having their photograph taken. Most subjects start a portrait shoot with the same level of excitement as they do with a visit to the dentist. However, the most common thing I hear once a session is complete is, “thank you for making that painless”.
I have built a reputation for being able to capture natural and genuine corporate and executive portraits. I allow my subject’s confidence, character and professionalism to shine through whilst maintaining the context of who they are and what they do. From big five banks to independent consultants, my clients depend on me to take great professional portraits.
