Capturing your business
There are many reasons why companies need high-quality photographs of their staff: social media, corporate websites, company newsletters and press enquires are just a few examples. Corporate images need to capture the culture of the company and they have to be of a consistent style too.
As well as headshots, many of my corporate clients also want general shots taken inside their offices with a mixture of portraits and people at their desks or in meetings. Several businesses work with me regularly to make sure their image library is kept up-to-date and looking fresh.
As with lifestyle shoots, I get to know each company through a pre-shoot visit. I find out more about what they do, but more importantly I learn about the company culture and its personality. And of course we discuss the type of images they want and what they need them for.
The visit gives me chance to scope out the building to find the best spaces for photography, taking note of potentially problematic areas so I can think about how to work with them on the day.
I’m always very flexible and clients can choose from a range of photographic styles, from shots against a white background with a full set of professional lights, to images of people at their desks or in meetings. I usually recommend a good mix of formal shots and more creative, natural images; whenever possible, I make use of natural light.
Professional corporate imagery is an important element in your branding and helps to make sure your business is always seen in the best possible light.
Coode Associates in Richmond are a perfect example of how I work with companies. Charlie first contacted me 4/5 years ago as he was starting a new business venture and needed a headshot. As the team has grown I have continued to do the photography at Warren House (where Charlie’s image was taken) so that the imagery has been consistent. Here is a little about the company.

They are a values-based organisation that has been established to combine a focus on results with a deep understanding of what it takes to create a permanent change in an organisation’s behaviour.

Here is a testimonial from Charlie about the work that I have done for them over the last few years.
“Annie has that rare ability to capture the essence of an individual whilst at the same time providing consistency in theme and style, which is important for a business using a professional photographer. We have used Annie for the past 4 years and would happily recommend her to individuals and businesses alike.”
