I’m noticing an increase in demand for strong, impactful and unique corporate portraits. There’s a fine balance where you can retain both professionalism and approachability – both key elements in a corporate portrait. Finding suitable backdrops can really help – as with this portrait here of Chris Merry the CEO of Stonehage Fleming at the Londoner Hotel.
Your profile portrait is the first thing a new client will look at. Is yours up to scratch? Does it reflect what you stand for? Is it unique or impactful? If not, I would love to help. Do email me at [email protected] to discuss further.

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.
