My latest business portrait was for TV presenter, author, entrepreneur and rock star (!) Mark Chase, who fronted the (somewhat obscure) band, World of Leather. I really enjoy doing this type of work. I'm often contacted by small business owners, many of whom run fairly non-traditional companies and are looking for a less corporate feel to their image. We spent around an hour along the South Bank, where there are so many fab corners and backdrops to shoot against, and having beautiful light that day was a bonus. A few weeks later I photographed Mark's gig and launch of his novel, Drive-By Shouting (what can this man NOT do??!!), which was attended by his friend, the legend that is Jeff Beck! Selling YOU is as vital as your business offering, especially in the current Instagram age where visuals are king. It really does make a difference having a profile picture on your website that shows your personality and style. If you're interested in a portrait session, please get in touch!
I was back at the London Bridge offices of Bellenden, a dynamic, growing consultancy firm providing services in public affairs and local planning among other areas. I regularly do head shots for their expanding staff as well as covering events and providing photographs for their website. The head shots were all done in a small meeting room and it took just a few minutes for each person.
