Why are headshots important?

If your business is online then headshots are vital to your professional image. A good headshots helps create a professional perception and connection to your clients and colleagues. Putting a face to a name helps to inspire confidence to potential clients. If you use a non professional headshot this could have a negative impact.

The first step is to get in touch and discuss your requirements, we'll advise on the best way forwards and provide you with a quote. The main choices are between a studio setup or 'environmental portraits'.

There are examples of both types of portrait photography in the gallery above. We set a portable photography studio up at your premises so there is no need for staff to travel. We use a slightly different lighting setup for 'environmental portraits'. Our photography studio requires a 5m x 6m space, often a meeting or board room is sufficient.

We charge around £345 for 12 people and £645 for 30 people which is in line with out general Commercial Photography rates.

For simple headshot photography, it’s good to allow eight to ten minutes per person. We send you the proofs and you choose between two and four photos per person to be graded and returned to you.
