A few shots from several recent portrait commissions with professionals from various backgrounds. All of the individuals involved wanted headshots for use as a public profile picture. They wanted a stand out image that not only defines them to their audience but has an honesty as well as a creative edge to the photograph… You can read more about corporate creative portrait photography on my blog pages here
Firstly Lyndsay Roberts Rayne & Rebecca Smart (Psychotherapists). The photographs were mainly taken for their project Rewild (www.re-wild.org) , which concentrates on workshops and retreats for women who need support in making changes at times of transition in their lives. Images were also used as profile pictures for business websites such as LinkedIn
“Jamie’s photos for our new website were exactly what we had asked him for, and more – they were professional, well lit and stylish. The ‘more’ part is what makes Jamie a really great photographer – he has a knack of making people relaxed in front of the camera, which not only made the whole photo shoot an enjoyable experience, but resulted in photos which really showed our characters. He also has a real skill in knowing what angles to shoot to give different ‘feelings’ to the images. I’ve had many photos taken over my career, and this was the most enjoyable photoshoot with a very professional result which completely fulfilled the remit we had given Jamie. I recommend him very highly.” Rebecca Smart – Coach, Facilitator, Integrative Arts Psychotherapist
The next set of images were for Somerset based web developer Ben Slater. Ben wanted a relaxed image of himself, so no better time to get the kettle on and have a cuppa and a chat, this was actually when I started clicking the camera shutter button to capture him in animated conversation but at ease.
“I had the pleasure of being the focus of Jamie’s directing and photography skills during a recent portrait shoot. Jamie’s manner and enthusiasm ensured an enjoyable and comfortable experience. The resulting images were fantastic. I have already booked Jamie again for a future shoot” Ben Slater -Head of Web Development at Barnstorm Games
Finally Ian Kozlowski; Bristol based Ian wanted a strong image to lead on his contact page for his specialist plaster company website (www.tadelakt.co.uk)
