Brand portraits for Faith PR, Brighouse, West Yorkshire.
New headshots for Faith PR in Brighouse.
Faith PR in Brighouse, West Yorkshire has always been a fantastic client and I have done loads of photo shoots for them. It’s great to see that they are always recruiting new talent so my brief today was to go and capture some portraits of the new staff members.
When doing anything like this I have a little process. I will be the first to acknowledge that having a portrait taken can be intimidating so I try to make it as painless as possible.
Step 1, have a look around. Faith PR owns the fabulous Brighub so I had quite a lot of backdrops which would be great for pictures.
Step 2, select the right member of the team. It’s always hard to go first so when I have a few people to photograph I want to find someone who is the most comfortable. Once someone goes then the others follow. When selecting a person I am looking for the person who isn’t hiding under their desk terrified.
Step 3, make it quick and fun. My strength is capturing real people. I know that a couple of minutes in each area is all that I need, whilst doing so I am always chatting to my subject, trying to find out more about them. My thoughts are if you are quick and confident they feel that you know what you are doing and will usually shine.
Know your clients
I know my clients well. I know which clients want a quick photo shoot and the ones who want something a little bit more extensive. So, a few portraits and a group shot in about forty minutes for Faith PR works. I know how they are going to use the pictures and where the pictures are going to go so having that information structures the whole shoot.
I’m sure I will be back there soon to photograph more members of staff.
