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.

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.

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.

Reservoir Dogs Style Corporate Portraits Photography Brighton

I was really happy to be asked to recreate the iconic Reservoir Dogs film poster photo for a Brighton based accountancy company for the ‘About US’ page for their new App.

Mark Carr and Co deal with the entertainment industry and so it seemed appropriate to make their profile image a bit more film-like. I had searched out a suitable gritty urban location for the photography that resembled the original Reservoir Dogs photograph and took some location lighting equipment to simulate the harsh sun as seen on the poster.

It was great fun as we tried to take a few steps in the centre of Brighton without being run-over by various cars and trucks, but Mark and his team were brilliant sports and we had a most amusing hour.

While we were there Mark Carr wanted to try a couple of other shots and so just for fun at the end of the photoshoot we recreated the famous ‘gun to gun’ image (using mobile phones) and a kind-of Usual Suspects line-up.

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.
