LinkedIn Recommendation from Internet Technology Company for Outdoor PhotographyPosted in Head Shots, Technology Company, Tips and News from Piranha
Piranha spent a few days photographing the staff of this internet technology company.
The brief was to capture a sense of the office location in Hoxton, London. The photographer used a shallow depth of field and a large reflector so as to retain the vibrant colours in the street. This method allows for a more eye-catching set of website images, especially when used with a text overlay/logo, rather than the typical grey or white indoor portrait. Each person was out of the office for about 10 minutes during the photo shoot, this allowed time to get some different portrait options.
Hi Sam, Thank you for the photos. We loved it and we loved Douglas too! Thanks! Best, Nicole

‘Business Leader’ Article Featuring Portrait Photograph of Private Equity PartnerPosted in Private Equity Company Photography, Corporate Portrait Photography, PR Photography
Its always been true since the days of film, if you can get a good business portrait to support an article then a magazine or newspaper will always run it bigger, a simple headshot is fine but its generally printed like a passport photo, A more considered image with an interesting background will be printed large giving your company better PR and exposure.
Keeping clients, journalists and publishers happy with fresh and contemporary photographic contentPosted in Head Shots, PR Photography, Tips and News from Piranha
Commercial photographic content is constantly evolving and it’s important for me as a professional photographer to hear the latest views from leading companies, agencies, publishers and editors.
Last week, I booked myself on a commercial photography weekend with Magnum Photo, where The FT Weekend Magazine, Diana Markosian (World Press Photo Award Winner), ‘Barbara’ the lifestyle/advertising and design agency and ’Shoot Europe,’ a production company whose clients include Nike, shared their opinions on how brands can best use pictures and video to stay fresh and contemporary. We also discussed emerging trends in digital content.
While each had their own opinion, all the contributors agreed the need for strong-yet-considered photography that is consistently presented across all forms of communication, from websites to corporate reports, marketing materials, blogs and social media feeds.
They also stressed just how important it is to be able to understand and work within a brief – usually working alongside journalists and publishers – to produce results that photographer and client are happy with.
I’d love to discuss over a coffee how to produce stand out photographic imagery in the real world of tight deadlines, restricted budgets and clients with very strong opinions and working habits.
Please get in touch and we can meet at your convenience.
Best wishes, Douglas

Head Shot Photograph of Barrister for WebsitePosted in Head Shots, Law Firm Photography, Websites
Piranha was commissioned to take a professional head shot of a barrister for use on their website.
After the photo shoot Piranha supplied a website of photographs to select from, and then ‘cut out’ in PhotoShop the chosen image so that this could be placed on the company’s website background and match to the rest of the images style.
A Recent Visit to Blavatnik School of Government in OxfordPosted in University / Academic Photography, Location / Annual Report Photography
A fascinating and inspiring visit to see the Blavatnik School of Government in central Oxford. The challenge was choosing the images to show you here. To see more of the pictures please click here –https://www.clients.piranhaphotography.com/MCS/Blavatnik/
A truly inspirational building that fits very well within the dreaming spires of Oxford, non-concentric circles below a huge light well that do not echo or reverberate the sounds from any floor. I went slightly crazy with my favourite lens, the Leica 21mm Super Elmar, superb colours and sharp corner to corner, the only lens I needed for such a building. – Douglas, Photographer

NEWS FLASH – Appreciations from Berlin/GermanyPosted in Tips and News from Piranha
I just received this interesting and heartening message, from a fellow photographer in Berlin…
just wanted to send you my apprecication for your work / business. I have followed your website / social media postings in the last couple of years and was always impressed by your great photography and professional business conduct. Your business portraits really look like the “real deal” / just the way they have to be done.
Here in Berlin, I have been in the business since 2002, mainly doing corporporate / political events and business portraits. Just two months ago I have opened – for the first time ever – my studio in the heart of the political district of Berlin – trying to offer a local/personal touch while every other photographer seems to be busy with working on their “social media accounts”. The verdict on my rather costly move, I have to admit, ist still out. But I am still positive, seeing the first bits of good client feedback.
Whenever you should come to Berlin, I would be pleased to show you around and buy you a German Beer 🙂
