Corporate headshot - a multipurpose shoot

Paul from Alchemy Equities contacted us recently about getting some corporate headshots done urgently for an upcoming public relations piece.

While we were doing the photoshoot we made sure we covered a range of different looks.  After all you never know when you need a photo of yourself in a hurry and for what purpose. 

With Paul we covered all the bases including a formal headshot with tie perfect for an annual report or formal publication. But we also included images with no tie which are slightly more relaxed and friendly which would be great for a LinkedIn profile photo or website image.
And then we have the black & white images on a dark background which would be great for an editorial or a more personal story as these images reflect a lot of character.

Finally we shot a mixture of closer up photos. Head and Shoulder images are great for social media avatars where your image size is limited. On the other hand the 3/4 length portraits are great for print publications.

Now whenever Paul needs an image whether it's for the annual report or biography for a speaker commitment or that last minute PR story he is all set and doesn't have to worry about where to find that image.

We also understand how important to get the images to our clients ASAP. Paul came in for a session at lunch and we got a selection of images to him the same day for selection. The next morning he had made his selection of images. The images were retouched and sent to Paul within a couple of hours. 

That included providing high resolution images as well as a web sized image and a set of images re-sized specifically for LinkedIn.
