4 out of 5 North Shore real estate agents use uber photography for their corporate photos

When I recently opened up the North Shore Times newspaper I was pleasantly surprised to see that on a double page featuring local real estate agents, 4 out of the 5 agents used über photography for their corporate photos.
 

North Shore Times, 4 April 2014

We have been trusted by North Shore real estate agents to take their headshots for over 10 years now.  During that period we have established some long term relationships with the companies and individual agents. This in turn mean that we are able to understand our clients requirements and deliver consistent results.
This in turn ensures that our Real Estate clients can present a consistently branded look and feel to all their print media, business cards and 'our team' webpages.

We often work with our clients from the beginning in order to develop a particular look unique to that client. A great example is Chadwick Real Estate, we came up with a concept together and followed through ever since to create a strong look.

Corporate real estate photography

I always enjoy seeing the results of our work out there and how it is being used by companies. It is a good reminder just how important it is to always do the best job possible.  

It's also important to see what the final product looks once it is printed. It's valuable feedback and allows us to plan future shoots both in terms of post production but also in how to pose and arrange people as in this case.

Here is the Chadwick Lindfield real estate flyer that was just delivered to our studio.

So all that looks fine, however logistically it's not always possible to get all the staff from a office into the studio at the same time. Especially when staff travel frequently, are on the road or are just hard to pin down.  

We understand that and therefore often photograph staff individually when it suits them to come to the studio and then create a team photo by combining the individual images together on one photograph. 

In addition this enables us to add or remove a staff members as required without having to get all the staff back into the studio for a new staff photo when someone leaves or joins the team.  

We are all about helping our clients to save money and making the process as easy as possible.

Corporate portraits - show some personality

So we had the fantastic team from Accumen Republic in the studio the other day. They are a young and dynamic team specializing in corporate and marketing communication.

It was important to create a professional image but still portray their individual personalities and create an overall sense of fun.
Kudos to everybody cause it's not easy to drop your inhibitions and act like a clown :)

The images will be used on their website, client proposals, LinkedIn marketing material.

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.

Sydney Real Estate Group Photos in Studio

Chadwick Real Estate have been one of our loyal clients for over 3 years now. So when the staff from the St. Ives office popped in for a staff group photo it was great to see all the familiar faces again.

In the past I have taken corporate portraits of each member and these portraits need to be updated every now and then. So after the staff photo we took the opportunity to redo everyone's individual head shot again.
