Headshots on pure white are a common, flexible option for businesses, but sometimes you want something more customised. Using your office in the background is an easy alternative.
Show off your work environment
The trend in Sydney headshot photography is to show a bit of your workplace. It lets clients get a feel for your company. Compared to a white background, an office has a more natural, authentic feel, which lends itself to more approachable photographs.
It also feels more friendly and informal, even when you wear a full suit and tie. Here are some corporate lawyers, who wanted to look professional but friendly.
We set up in a board room which had a bookshelf along one wall, and lined up the volumes of law books neatly so there were no gaps.
Of course, it’s not just a matter of placing someone in front of a bookshelf. This is what the camera would capture if the bookshelf was left as-is.
We used multiple lights on the background itself, so that it would reflect a bright, open environment that fit in with the brand of the business. This was all done and tested before the first staff ever stepped in. Once we were set up, each lawyer just needed to stand in the same spot, and we knew we would have perfect lighting.
The result is bright professional headshots that show off your professional workplace. We were able to get consistent results across a few days of shooting. In the future, when they have new staff, we would be able to come back and capture more in the same style.
