Corporate profile portrait photography

With online digital presence becoming increasingly prevalent, first impressions are often made from your profile image – be this on Linkedin, social media or your own website – is all the more important.  A successful portrait will endorse your ‘brand image’ and encourage your prospective client to read on.  A weak one may do the reverse.

The brief for this corporate profile was to create an impactful and contemporary portrait which portrayed his wealth of experience and confidence with his cutting edge and innovative approach.  Before I even picked up my camera, we researched other portraits – what we felt worked and didn’t work and why, suitable backdrops, poses, clothing and expressions, so that when we went into my studio, we had a clear idea of what we wanted to achieve.  The backdrop & lighting created impact, the ‘no tie’ and the relaxed pose on the stool were contemporary, whilst the formality of the suit and expression exuded confidence and experience.

Please contact me if you’re interested in a commercial headshot or profile portrait.  With 20 years of experience as a portrait photographer, combined with 10 years as an Account Director in a branding agency, I understand how to achieve unique and impactful profile images, that reflect your ‘brand image’ and help you stand out from your competitors.  As a leading portrait photographer the South West, I travel regularly to London, Hampshire, Wiltshire, Berkshire, Gloucestershire, Somerset, Devon and Cornwall and happy to travel further afield.   Or you can visit my spacious studio near Sherborne, Dorset.

Profile portrait of artist Hannah Shergold

Having a strong profile portrait for your business is essential.   The first thing you look at on a website is the picture and then the text.  If you like what you see in the profile portrait, you are much more likely to read the accompanying text.  Your profile portrait is your brand.   I undertake a lot of corporate style portraits in my studio in Dorset, or I can come to you.   Where possible I like portraits to reflect the nature of your work.  So studio portraits may suit some, whilst location portraits, or vocational portraits may suit others.   Either way, it’s about a striking image that shows you to be top of your game, confident, professional and approachable.

Hannah Shergold is one of those enviable people who is brilliant at everything she applies herself to.   A Cambridge graduate in pre-clinical Veterinary Medicine, bronze sculptor, ex Lynx helicopter commander, award-winning wildlife & portrait artist, are but a few of her skills.   And what’s more, she is as lovely as she is beautiful.

She’s raised over £65,000 for the Born Free Foundation in 2019, £50,000 for the Invictus Games, and is now raising money for Tusk.  Do visit her website to see more of her work.  Portraits include Prince Harry (although I’m not sure we can still call him that) and David Beckham.

This portrait of Hannah is from a collection of images I took of her in the famous dining room at St Giles House in Dorset.   I love the juxtaposition of history and modernity.
