Business Headshot Portraits of Cathy Glass

It’s been a mad mad couple of weeks here in Brighton with headshot portraits, actor’s headshots and business portraits, some in the studio and some on location.

Cathy is a director of the international consulting company Axialent and came into the studio for a new set of headshot portraits for their website, brochures and PR material.

Cathy was so totally lovely to photograph – here are a couple from the photography 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.

Reportage Photography Fabulous Magazine

A few weeks ago I was commissioned by the good people at Fabulous magazine to photograph a ‘pre-school prom party’ for an article in their magazine about this new mini-phenomenum imported from the States.

It was a strange concept; twenty 4-year-olds dressed in prom dresses and suits, and drinking fruit juices out of plastic cocktail glasses. But the people who ran their nursery in Portsmouth were such genuinely nice people, and all they wanted was the best start for these young children from not-so-privileged backgrounds.

So the article was published today and I was pleased to see a good selection of my photography used for the report. Here are a few.

Drama and Theatre Students – Big Discounts on Headshots

As a Brighton photographer I am a huge believer in improving the standards of headshot and portrait photography provided to Spotlight, agents and casting directors. I know most students have real problems finding the money to get a professional headshot but c’mon guys this is your future you are investing in here!

Sian by Brighton headshot and casting photographers David Myers

You wouldn’t think twice about spending decent money on a guitar or an amp or a violin if you studied music? Fender Telecaster – £800 anyone? £1500? Anyway – up to the end of September 2013 I am offering Drama and Theatre-studies Students big discounts on my usual headshot photoshoot prices so you can experience how it is to get a professional photographer to photograph you.

As long as you can show some proof of theatre/drama studies you can have my usual headshot sessions, with all my hints and tips on how to engage with the camera, together with 5 fully retouched images as digital files for the astonishingly delectable price of £105 (normally the price starts at £165). If there are 2 of you for the same session then it’s a crazy £80 each. 3 of you then its £70 each. I might add a little-biddy petrol cost onto the price if I’m travelling out of the Brighton/Hove area.

We can shoot in the studio or on location and you’ll get 5 professional headshots for Spotlight, casting directors, agents. All given at full resolution for printing and a smaller web-ready size for emailing, Facebook etc.

I’m expecting a bit of a rush on this offer so I apologise in advance if I can’t fit you in.

Brighton Photographer Business Portraits – David Biddle CEO

Business and corporate portrait photography doesn’t sound like it should be the most exciting of jobs to do as a Brighton photographer but I love meeting new people (it’s one of the reasons that people photography is my favourite kind of work) and yesterday I had the distinct pleasure of meeting David Biddle who is the new CEO of CRI (UK’s leading health and social care charity). David needed a quick series of portrait headshots for a press release the next day so I set up a compact 2 light location studio at their offices here in the centre of Brighton and we were done and dusted within 15 minutes.

A big thanks to his brilliant executive assistant, Polly.

Lessons in Photography – Miley Cyrus

Entertainment photographer brighton sussex miley cyrus 01

I’ve worked as a photographer for many years (portraits, headshots, entertainment) but I still learn stuff; unfortunately sometimes I learn stuff ‘The Hard Way’, and this is a lesson I learned not so long ago.

I was commissioned to be the unit stills photographer for the filming of Miley Cyrus performing as Hannah Montana at a theatre in London. I had arrived early on the train from Brighton, searched out the best locations and positions to photograph from, and got some general photos of the set, the film crews working, the stage and lighting etc, before the performance started.

I then nipped outside to photograph the front of the theatre with the giant neon ‘Hannah Montana Live’ sign. Unfortunately there were some tourists stood in front of the theatre and kinda spoiling my shot – two teenage girls and their mother. They were mucking around doing funny poses and larking about while the mother took some photos with her phone. I just stood and waiting till they left and then took a photo of the theatre and sign with no people on it.

Back inside they were setting up for the sound and light check and who came on stage but one of the teenage girls who’d been larking about outside – Miley Cyrus. Of course I had never seen here before and had no idea what she looked like. Stupid me!

The lesson – do your research beforehand. No matter what the job is you must research it, so you can at the VERY LEAST recognise the person who you will be photographing – and especially if they are a celebrity, a musician, a singer, an actor – someone who as an entertainment photographer, you or I should be aware of!

Afterwards the company who had commissioned me asked if I had any good ‘candid’ shots of Miley, perhaps goofing around………Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr

I love this song but I’m not sure why!

Perhaps is the cool guitars.

Or the line ‘I have unattractive nurses in my dreams’

Or just the fact that it’s totally brilliant!
