Social media tools such as LinkedIn, Twitter and Facebook have given renewed emphasis to business portraits, as have email account profiles, intranets, company websites, and so on. Customers and contacts expect to see images of senior staff, and for everyone in an organisation to be consistently presented.
We have developed three distinct styles of portrait that can be used together or in isolation to convey the personality, culture and context that best fits your business: The Classic Headshot, The Environmental Portrait, and Company Portraits. Each type of portrait is retouched in post-production as part of the package, ensuring that your people look their best and are proud to represent the company. We shoot on location or at our studio in Colchester, depending on your requirements, and present the final images as an online gallery. To find out more please get in touch.
