Cardiff commercial photo shoot

Cardiff commercial photo shoot

Commercial photo shoot with Cardiff dental practice Courtyard Dental.

The folks at The Courtyard Dental Spa are a wonderfully friendly bunch! I paid them two visits to take staff headshots and images around the practice for their brand new website. The practice is beautifully presented and very light and airy (which is great for me!). We spent time in each area of the practice to capture images for the different sections of the website. We also used different settings for staff headshots to give them a fresh modern feel.

As a small business it's really important to convey your ethos through your branding and images. Clients like to get to know their service provider and a set of professional images can help you to appear friendly, approachable and professional at the same time. If you run a small business and would like to have a chat about how professional images can help your business, then get in touch for a free consultation.

Small business photoshoot

Small business photoshoot

I adore working with small businesses and I love this small business photoshoot. As a business owner myself, I know how hard it is to work alone. There's so much that needs to be done - marketing, accounts, admin - that sometimes it can feel overwhelming. As a photographer I'm well aware of the need for great images to showcase my work and I also understand how important it is for other businesses to be able to show off their products or services to their full potential.

With years of experience I can help you to create a fantastic set of images for your business that will make it stand out. Each business is unique and so I offer free consultations to all business owners to help map out a bespoke plan for their images.

When Kate from Skratch Ceramics contacted me to book a shoot for her business I was extremely excited. I've been a big fan of her work for years and couldn't wait to see her studio - where all the magic happens.

Kate wanted a selection of images to use across her social media platforms and website, so we included images of her working as well as the studio and products.

If you'd like to find out more about booking a photoshoot for your business, get in touch for a free consultation.

Have a look at my headshot portfolio page and find out more about pricing on my business pricing page.

You can also follow me on Facebook and Instagram to see my latest work.

In the meantime, check out this small selection of images from Kate's shoot.

3 reasons why you need a professional headshot!

Do you run your own business? Work as a freelancer? Do you have a LinkedIn profile? Are you on Facebook or Instagram?

If you've answered yes to any of those questions then it's time to put the selfie stick away and book a professional headshot photo session.

Here's 3 reasons why you need a proper headshot:

1. You need to look professional

Whether you run your own business, work as a freelancer or work for a company, you will need a decent headshot. A good headshot will convey your professionalism at work and portray you in the best light.  A professional headshot will stand out amongst the array of cropped and blurry selfie images. It will also will show your potential employers, clients and colleagues that you value yourself and that they should too.

2. You can use it in multiple ways

A photographer can work with you to create a set of images that you can use across a number of platforms. You might need something formal for a conference brochure or something informal for a magazine interview. Or, you might be asked for a portrait image for a presentation or a landscape image for an online article.  You can use them as profile pictures on Facebook and LinkedIn or on Instagram to introduce yourself to followers. The possibilities are endless. One thing is for certain, it's an investment that you won't regret.

3. It will make you feel good

Having a selection of professional images that you can use will make you feel good. You'll no longer panic when someone asks for a headshot as you'll have a variety of images to choose from. Having a set of great images will raise your self esteem and give you one less thing to worry about.

This year already I've taken lots of professional headshots for local business people, from physiotherapists to dentists, actors to freelancers and consultants to writers. Each session is tailored to create a set of images to portray them in a way that makes them feel professional and proud. In the next few weeks I'll be photographing a ceramics artist, a harpist and a therapist - each session will be totally bespoke for their needs. Keep an eye on my social media platforms to see them!

Have a look below at a selection of my favourites images from this year. What does your profile picture say about you?

Business Headshot Photography

Business headshot shoot on a weekend away! I recently went away for the night with my very good friend Sheila. She lives in London and I live in South Wales so we don't get to see each other very often.

She needed to update her headshots for her new website so we took the opportunity to nip into the beautiful restaurant at the St Bride's Spa Hotel, Saundersfoot (where we stayed) to take a few shots. It's a fantastic hotel with spectacular views and the service there is exceptional. I highly recommend a visit.

The views from the restaurant are gorgeous - I've included a shot of the view out of the window for you to see.

If you need to update your headshot or need images for your business, have a look at my headshot and business photography packages and my headshot portfolio and then drop me a line to arrange a bespoke session.

Headshot sessions are 1 hour and include a selection of images for you to choose from and use. Commercial photography shoots are longer and include staff headshots as well. You can see lots of examples of my work with businesses in South Wales on my blog.
