looking their best
When shooting corporate portraits, it could be anyone from a construction worker to the Chair of an ASX 100 company. Both are busy and having their photograph taken is usually the last thing they want interrupting their day. In the case of the Chair, quite often I only have fifteen minutes to photograph them during a break in the board meeting or AGM. As for the construction worker, well no time is a good time to stop and look relaxed for a photographer.
Both are real people, with a story to tell and something unique to bring to the image. That’s where I come in. In the short space of time that I get to spend with my subjects, I help to take their mind off what’s going on around them and put them at ease. Camera and lighting equipment are prepared in advance so that I can focus on the task at hand, that of capturing the subject’s finer side in as few frames as possible. I must be doing something right because some even start to enjoy it. The corporate photos that I take are always professional but I also strive to ensure that they show each subject as an individual and not just a job title.
Photographing company assets and operations plays an important role in corporate and stakeholder communication. It also requires considerable planning and logistic skills to make shooting at a variety of locations a success. As a successful and experienced corporate photographer in Sydney, I know that I need to put as much effort into planning and arranging my shoots as I do actually taking the photographs. I regularly photograph my clients’ customers and a well-managed shoot not only reflects well on me but on my client as well.
I’m used to working in all types of corporate and business environments, whether it’s photographing an executive team or company assets. My clients appreciate that not only do I capture great images for their corporate communications needs, but I ensure there is minimal disruption and that the appropriate health and safety standards are maintained.
