My old friends and colleagues over at JFDI needed some new photos for their LinkedIn profiles, and a new project called The SharePoint Doctors – so of course they came to me.
Business portrait photography is a bit of a psychological business… it’s one thing to get someone relaxed enough to take a good photo of them, but with business portrait photography it’s all about conveying a positive message about the person to whoever sees the photo. Communicating what you need someone to see in just a still photo is a difficult and onerous task, and not to be taken lightly. But judging by the number of my photos I see chosen on LinkedIn as my clients’ profile photos, most people seem to like what I’ve done for them.
It’s different again photographing people you know… but a real laugh… there was barely a dry eye in the house due to the almost constant messing about. But the result was some very relaxed portrait photos of a couple of chaps who are great at what they do for work, but really don’t like having their photo taken – which of course is one of my specialities! If you’re not keen on having your photo taken, give me a call and I’ll do the same for you.
