My corporate headshot photography experience has seen me working with people from all backgrounds and professions mostly in London and Surrey. The goal is always the same: create a business-like headshot that conveys a friendly, likeable and approachable appearance, whilst also maintaining an air of professionalism and expertise.
London and Surrey
I believe a good corporate headshot can say a lot about somebody, and I will tailor my corporate headshot photography style to suit his or her profession. For example, a bank manager in central London may want to appear more professional, whilst a psychotherapist in Surrey may want to appear warmer and more approachable. I use a variety of techniques and technologies to achieve this.
Mobile Photo Studio
My corporate headshot photography studio is completely mobile – all of my equipment can fit into three bags and it takes no longer than 30 minutes to set up. Most of my corporate headshot photography work is in London and Surrey. Alternatively, the studio in my Guildford-based living room is ideal for individual corporate headshot photography sessions.

Corporate Headshot Photography FAQ
Why do I need a professional headshot?
Most of my clients in London and Surrey use their corporate headshots for their social media profiles such as LinkedIn and Twitter, but the need for a professional headshot can vary according to the industry. For example, I have worked for journalists in central London who use my photos next to their byline below their articles. My shots have also been used for managers and management teams in central London in their companies’ annual reports, and they’re also great for website profiles across a number of professions from law to dentistry.
Headshots are also ideal for marketing material such as printed flyers and business cards, which is particularly useful to self-employed individuals.
How much space do we need to provide?
I am always happy to travel for my clients, and do not need a studio setting to make my photographs work well. For headshots I’ll only need about 2m by 2m of space; however for group shots I’ll need considerably more space to accommodate the size of the group. My studio is completely mobile; as such I do not need access to electricity as all of my flashes are powered by large battery packs.
How many headshots can you photograph per hour?
Based on an average of five minutes per person, I can photograph up to 12 people in one hour and have done so previously. Working to this speed, I can produce three to four photos per person, though this can be increased with more flexibility on numbers and timescales.
What does “unlimited usage rights” mean?
This means that you may use your new photos in any context you like, including commercial advertising. However, you may not resell my photos, for example to a photo stock library, as the copyright ownership of the photos resides with me.
Which forms of payment do you accept?
All of my corporate headshot clients will receive an invoice with the date of the day’s photography session. This can be paid via bank transfer or in cash on the day of the session.
What type of equipment do you use?
Only the best! I regularly update my equipment to keep in line with industry standards, but at the moment I am using a 42 megapixel Sony A7R3 with a selection of prime G-Master lenses. This means that all of your photos will be large enough for full poster size prints if required.
