November 23 news
Over in Leeds I visited iseepr, a company that specialises in tech PR, to take a group shot and to keep them up to date with their headshot photography. A really friendly bunch of people, who always make me feel very welcome. It’s also a big bonus that they have a lovely looking office to work with so I don’t struggle for nice backgrounds.
I was very excited to be approached by an agency all the way from New Zealand for a commercial photoshoot for Xero, the accounting software people. I landed back down to earth when I realised the shoot was only an hour away in York! I visited Hunter Gee Holroyd along with a team of videographers to document a case study – HGS using and being trained on Xero software.
This was a really sweet story for Good Housekeeping magazine with author Tracy Bloom and husband Bruce in Derbyshire. ‘I Married My Best Friend… Two Decades After We First Met’. A lovely couple and very easy to photograph. Thanks to make up artist Molly Payne.
A trip to Sheffield to photograph the stars of BBC Radio Sheffield. I do love photographing radio presenters – they are often a bit shy in front of the camera but always have big personalities that make really lively and fun portraits.
I really enjoyed this Branding Photoshoot in central Leeds with Katie and Amy from Haggerty Jaques (a legal recruitment agency). Katie and Amy were both quite nervous but soon got into the swing of the photoshoot and I think they actually enjoyed it in the end 🙂 Branding images are so useful to promote a business. If you are the face of your business it’s a really good idea to have a selection of promotional images handy.
Lastly, I was asked to take corporate portraits for Red Sky Learning. RSL provide leadership and team development to businesses. They are based in a really pretty part of central Leeds and I was able to find lots of little locations on the doorstep which resulted in a set of headshots that were individual, but still hung together well with the red brick / industrial look.
Bye for now.
