Paul Chapman Business Portrait Headshot

I’m really pleased to have made this business portrait headshot of Paul Chapman for his company profile, CV and social media.

Paul was so easy and fun to photograph. I set up in his office using my portable lighting and studio equipment and after 10 minutes we were done and dusted, with this brilliant shot.

Having a business portrait headshot taken doesn’t have to mean any disruption to your office or your diary. I come over to your business, set up somewhere out of the way and get everything ready. Then I ask you to slip over, give you a few simple clues about what to do in front of the camera – flash, bang, wallap and you’re done – a great image for your website or brochure.paul-chapman-business-portrait-headshot-brightonI am always surprised by the poor standard of the photography on the profiles of businesses and companies, whether they are based in Brighton, a little village in Sussex or the big bad city of London. Surely if you are going to include a photo of yourself or an employee then it should be a decent one – either serious or fun, as long as it is professional. I know that if I look a company’s profile and see poor photography then I do wonder about the professionalism of the people there.

Portrait Headshots of Designer Leanna Williams

Leanna Williams is a lingerie designer working just outside Brighton, Sussex and has developed a new luxury range for her own company (harlowandfox.co.uk). She asked me to provide a variety of PR images and so I visited her in her beautiful home and studio for the photoshoot.

Leanna was lovely to work with and her designs are absolutely wonderful. I decided on a subtle toning for the final images which was achieved with a combination of lighting at the photo-session and also in post-processing back at my studio.

As always I used my brilliant Nikon D3s with (in these two photos) the 85 1.4 or the 24-70 2.8. Both amazing lenses.

Here are a couple of my faves from the shoot.

Brighton Headshot Portraits – Actor Inti Conde

Inti Conde is a young actor and singer, and he came into my Brighton photography studio last week to get his Spotlight headshot portraits updated.

Inti had just returned from a season singing in an Opera in France and wants to get more acting work, and he realises how important a decent professional Spotlight headshot is to get castings. He’s such a lovely guy and great in front of the camera, and I wish him all the best for what will be a great future in the business.

Here are three from the photo session.

American Express Corporate Headshot Portraits

As a photographer I love the challenge of making headshot portraits for high-end businesses and big companies. I often find the people I meet really impress me with their charm and warm welcomes, and so it was with American Express when they commissioned me to photograph some of their top people in their Brighton HQ.

It’s always a challenge to set up a portable studio in a meeting room as you never know how large or (usually) how small these rooms are; full of tables and chairs and white boards etc. But the lovely people at American Express found me a huge beautiful room in which to set up my location photographic studio. Actually their new offices are sensational.

With slots of 10-15 minutes per person the photographer is always going to be up against the time, but in this case my ‘models’ were just so lovely, professional and easy going. Here are my favourite shots of Keith, Vanessa, Vanessa and Adrian

As usual I used my amazing Nikon D3s with the Nikon 70-200 2.8 lens and a variety of portable flashes such as the Elinchrom Quadra and Nikon SB800s.

All the shots were processed in Lightroom 5 and retouched in Photoshop CS5.

Colin Bell by Brighton Portrait Photographer

Colin Bell has a new novel published in a few weeks and got in touch to have a new set of publicity headshot portraits.

I set up a small studio in his delightful Lewes home and we made some memorable and atmospheric images. Colin was brilliant in front of the camera as can be seen by this image below.

Colin’s novel is titled ‘Stephen Dearsley’s Summer of Love’ and will be published by Ward Wood. And btw – Colin’s blog is a fascinating place to spend some time too (www.wolfiewolfgang.com).

Here’s my favourite from the photoshoot, looking not unlike he should be starring in some Scandanavian TV crime series.

The Actress Stephanie Hazel Photography Brighton

I was contacted by the lovely Stephanie Hazel, a young and busy theatre actress and singer based in Lancing Sussex, who needed some updated portrait headshots for her agent and Spotlight. She particularly wanted a location look so we set up outside here in Brighton and with various reflectors and lights battled with a constantly changing light. One minute full sun, the next dark clouds…..

Stephanie was brilliant to work with and as these photos show, she has a really wide range and I’m sure she’ll get loads of work.

Nia Coleman Photography, Brighton Studio

Here are a few shots from an excellent photoshoot session in my Brighton studio yesterday with the soprano singer Nia Coleman. The totally delightful Nia is about to embark on a postgraduate degree in music (opera) and wanted some images to promote herself to agents, Spotlight and through her own website.

Nia was a brilliant person to work with and had loads of great ideas, and was totally professional. I’m sure she’ll go far.

Black and White Portrait Photography Brighton

I really like the look of this close-up headshot from my recent photoshoot with Nick Price.

Before going fully digital in 2005 I processed all my Black and White prints using a huge variety of papers I’d collected for donkey’s years. The look here reminds me of prints I used to get with Agfa’s Portriga Rapid, a warm toned chlorobromide paper that was eventually replaced due to the high level of noxious elements.

I actually still have some of this paper left, but sadly no darkroom.

Portraits for Nick Price, Futurist, Sussex

Before I met Nick Price I had never come across the term ‘Futurist’ but that’s the ace thing about being a photographer in Brighton and Sussex – such a diverse variety of people.

Nick (and I’m still hazy in this area) advises companies on the future of their businesses, a consultant but much more than that as he looks at the whole world as it relates to the business (I’m even more hazy now and might need a lie down). And he wanted a whole set of new images to populate his new website.

He was great fun to work with, a thoroughly nice guy, a brilliant mind and an excellent model. We were kindly lent the use of The Dock in Hove (big thanks to Melanie) which was perfect for a variety of locations.

I used a really simple lighting set-up which was manouvered by my assistant, and I was really happy to be able to work quickly in what was a pretty small space.

Here are just a few from the session.

Couple Photoshoot Brighton Seafront, Sussex

How’s this for resilience on a c..c..c..cold Sussex day not at all suited to outdoor location photography.

Rosie and Dickon were amazingly good sports for their ‘couple’ photoshoot on Brighton seafront with temperatures literally hovering just above zero and an icy sea-breeze bringing in freezing fog from the south!

Here are a few photos of this truly lovely pair.
