New Contemporary Website for AlixPartners

New Corporate Head Shots for Website

Piranha have been commissioned to photograph London staff members of AlixPartners for their new website project. This global company specialises in helping their corporate clients with turnaround and restructuring.

The brief was to achieve a new look and feel for all the head shots whether individual or photographed as a group and this is reflected in their new clean website design. Everyone was photographed whilst actively engaged in conversation with a colleague who provided the blurred foreground head and shoulders to give a greater sense of communication. The banner images featured a group of people in collective discussion, with specific placement of the subjects within the frame to allow for text and graphics.

This can be achieved with artificial or natural light but to keep the interruption and distraction to a minimum we went for daylight and used fast Leica lenses to allow for an attractive shallow depth of field, it was then a question of subject placement and careful processing of the RAW files each time to ensure consistent lighting, contrast and colour palette.

The Photography Brief

The feel of the final images is dynamic and contemporary, with a brief that required ‘active portraits’ that is photographs that convey a sense of AlixPartners staff in discussion with clients, caught in mid flow as it were. Not serious nor laughing too much – engaged in conversation.

This ongoing project has required a number of days of photography both during induction events and also for current staff members extra full days.  The next steps will be to photograph the various UK wide offices.

Below are a small selection of the images taken which are now being used to populate the new website.

A challenging balancing act for Equistone Partners Europe’s new website

Our brief from Equistone Partners Europe, a leading mid-market private equity firm, for its new website http://www.equistonepe.com/home demanded eye-catching but informal shots of its Partners and employees that captured ‘a sense of place’ in France, Switzerland and the UK, reflecting the importance Equistone sets on being local capital partners working in local markets.

The other important consideration was how well the photographs would display on the new site. When framing the pictures, we had to make sure we had allowed room for the site’s navigational banners.

And we needed just the right depth of field to keep subjects sharply in focus, while blurring the background to avoid distraction but leaving sufficient visual ‘clues’ about each country where Equistone operates. In the end, we were happy we had achieved this challenging balancing act.

For the technically minded, nearly all the photographs were taken on a new Leica M240 coupled with a 35mm Summicron ASPH lens.

The Leica M240, with its famous rangefinder design, is invaluable on location assignments, being light and durable with an almost silent shutter. This allows me as the photographer to blend into the background, which relaxes the subjects and is much less intimidating. It’s worth saying again that the Leica rangefinder is the camera behind most of the memorable and iconic images of the previous century.

Can we help you with your website?

I think your photographs are fantastic and there are some group shots in particular that capture a moment so perfectly and look so natural, I think they are brilliant. - Barbara Hand, Design Manager Equistone Partners Europe Limited
