An up-to-date business portrait shows your clients that you care about your professional image, which in turns builds their trust in your professional services; if you don’t care how you look, what does that say about how you care about your business product or service?
What does your photography on your LinkedIn business page say about you?!
- Is it current?
- Is it a holiday snap?
- A ‘self portrait’ or ‘selfie’ taken at arms length?
- On your wedding day?!
You need to come across as credible and professional and that picture of you in your swimsuit / sunglasses/ flip flops really doesn’t do it justice.
We are increasingly physically disconnected from the tangible world in our pursuit of new business and clients. We connect daily with people on-line be it through email, Facebook, twitter, blogging or the other miriad of ways entering the world weekly. And yet we are human; we like to put a face to a name. We remember people and businesses better if we can visually place them.
We like to know that the person on the end of the phone or keyboard is friendly, personable, likeable.
We therefore need a good photograph of ourselves that portrays the image that you would like to project of yourself, your company and your brand. A business portrait is essential in creating a professional approach and will build trust in you and your brand. People like to be able to see who you are and feel like they can connect with you. Not only will it be your avatar on social media sites but can be used to enhance press releases & publicity strategies as well as on your business web pages.
I offer a number of options depending upon what you are after.
- A simple 1hr session at your premises or choice of local venue. I do a number of different set ups, and after post production you get to choose 5 images from a selection. You will receive the files both as high and low resolution images via email or dropbox. This is £85.
- A more bespoke, tailored session, 2-3 hours, possibly more than one location. You at work as well as more stylised set ups. A couple of outfit changes perhaps. This allows me to photograph up to 3 people in the company and any products that could be used with those people for marketing purposes etc. Ideal for creating brochures, web imagery, portfolios etc. £250 to include CD of images. In other words, lifestyle workplace photography and not just a head and shoulders portrait.
- For larger companies, a bespoke quotation can be made once a more detailed brief has been given. Do call to arrange a chat or meeting.
