Corporate Headshots

A good corporate headshot can go a long way in establishing a professional and credible image for your business. There are so many approaches to executive portraits, from straightforward corporate headshot photography on a white background to more involved editorial style portraits. To help you decide what sort of images are right for you or your company, I’ve divided them into four areas with distinct styles to suit your needs. There is much more information and guidance to read within those sections.

Whichever option you choose, a good corporate headshot gives people an idea of your personality. It reminds them who you are, portraying your business professionally and building trust.

Clean, professional corporate headshots are a great way to present yourself and your company in the best light. They are perfect for businesses that need to look polished, authoritative and credible. These images should be used on websites, social media profiles or printed material.

Corporate Group Shots

Reportage style headshots

Here are a few examples of headshots with a reportage style which you might prefer for your company. Usually people are not looking at the camera for these shots. The advantages of this style is that they are more relaxed…

“Claire was a consummate professional when taking headshots of various members of the GW Legal team. As this is something we don’t do regularly, there was some trepidation, but Claire put us at ease within moments. The quality of the photos are impeccable and has really added value to our online offering. We can’t fault Claire and her professionalism and will use her again for any future projects”.

Alexander Loveless, Marketing Manager – GW Legal

“I’ve been working with Claire for a few years now and each and every time we get Claire in she does her best to get exactly what we are looking for. Always prompt, professional and a pleasure to work with. Shots are sent over so quickly after the shoot for proofing so gives us the flexibility to use the shots straight away.”

Lynsey Thompson, Events and Campaign Co-ordinator, Datel

“I’ve used Claire twice now and recommended her to other businesses needing to take fantastic portrait photos. She is truly excellent. On our last shoot, poor Claire was up against a tight deadline but she still managed to produce a range of brilliant photos!”

Liz Ward – Virtuoso Legal – The Intellectual Property Specialists

“Claire is an absolute professional. I have worked with Claire for a number of years on various projects. She delivers on the brief, every time…with fantastic results. Whether you are looking for traditional commercial portraits, or something a little different, I would have no hesitation in recommending Claire.”
