Business headshots are vital for creating trust. People want to do business with people, not faceless companies, so a professional headshot is an important way to create a personal connection with customers and clients.

I offer both studio and location sessions for companies and individuals, creating high quality, professional headshots with a minimum of fuss and disruption to your working day.

If you just need one simple headshot, you can book a 20 min express session at my Cardiff studio using the booking form below. If you need more options, or you have a team to photograph on location, let me know and we can discuss your exact requirements.

HYBRID PHOTOGRAPHY?

It can be difficult to get everyone into the office on the same day for a photo shoot, especially now that hybrid working has become more common. So I now offer "hybrid photography" - the perfect combination of location and studio...

1. Book your main photo shoot day and photograph everyone in the office. I bring a backdrop and make notes so I can reproduce the same "look" in the studio later.
2. Pay via invoice for a set number of studio sessions if required.
3. You receive a set of booking codes to allow any additional people to book themselves in to the studio to receive matching images that will blend seamlessly with the original shoot. Same background, same lighting.

Someone off sick on the day of the shoot? Hired an extra person a week after you photographed everyone? Not a problem. Simply send them to the studio for 20 minutes and receive a headshot that looks the same as all the ones we did at your office.

No more dodgy iPhone pics filling in the gaps!

FAQ

How much space do you need to set up? What kind of room is suitable?

Most meeting/conference rooms are usually fine. The more space the better, but a space of around 4mx3m is usually plenty. The important thing is that we can clear the floor area, either by moving tables and chairs out of the room or stacking them in the corner. Its also important that I can park on site so I can unload equipment easily.

How many people can you photograph in one day?

It depends on you and your staff. The first hour is for getting in and setting up the studio. After that it usually takes no more than 5-10 minutes per person to take the pictures and have them go through them on the laptop and choose their favourite. If you'd like more posing, lighting or clothing options we can allow more time. You can either let people drop by as they're available during the day, or you can schedule each person a timed slot to ensure everyone gets their turn. We can discuss this when you book.

Not everyone is available at the same time? Can I book multiple days?

Of course. Depending on your location and how many days you need, we can negotiate a suitable rate. Alternatively people can schedule themselves a studio session using my "Hybrid Photography" system.

What can we do with the pictures?

On your invoice the usage rights will be noted as "Unlimited use by the client, excluding commercial advertising." So your company can use the pictures anywhere for as long as you need, but not for paid advertising. If you do need to use the images in commercial advertising I can quote for this separately.

Can we choose a backdrop?

I usually have white and grey available, but if you'd like a colour to match your company branding, or just to make the pictures a bit more fun and lively, I can order a wide range of different paper backdrops. They cost £60 for a roll and you can keep it after the shoot if you want it! Alternatively, you can use part of your office as a backdrop.

Do you do black and white?

I shoot everything in colour on digital cameras but I can supply black and white versions if you prefer.

We already have some headshots that were done previously, can you match those for our new staff?

I'm usually pretty good at figuring out how a set of pictures was done, so if you already have a set of headshots you're happy with, but you need to add new ones for additional staff, let me know and I can try to match lighting and backdrops to ensure a consistent look.

Do people get to choose their favourite picture?

Yes. I like to let people see the results and choose their favourite on the day as this saves a lot of time later. This way people can be happy with the picture used by the company to represent them, and I can get on with the retouching as soon as possible after the shoot, without needing to wait for people's choices to come through. I shoot with my camera tethered to a laptop or iPad so the images are instantly available to view. We'll go through the pictures and choose a favourite there and then, and this will then be retouched and delivered as the final image.

What kind of retouching do you do?

Every selected image is lightly retouched before delivery. I adjust crop, colour and contrast, gently smooth out skin and clean up temporary marks or blemishes, and remove the occasional stray hair. I don't make people slimmer, make their noses smaller, or turn them into plastic mannequins!

How long does it take before we get the photographs?

I generally aim to have finished, retouched images delivered within 5 working days, although its often sooner. If you're on a tight deadline, let me know and I'll do my best to get them ready for you in time.

What areas of the country do you cover?

Anywhere you need! I'm based in South Wales but I'm happy to travel anywhere in the country subject to negotiating suitable rates and expenses.

Can we also get some other portraits of the boss/directors/MD/chief exec?

Of course! I love to get creative and shoot environmental portraits around the company. We can use different locations, props, lighting etc and get whatever you need. Get in touch and we can discuss the details and work out a bespoke quote.
