Piranha was commissioned to take a team photograph for Farrer and Kane communications agency’s website. This was to include all staff members. We arranged a central London studio where the photography could take place, then set up a backdrop and lighting. The brief was to create a fun shot of everyone together, and for it to be lively and reflect the atmosphere of the office. Afterwards the selected digital image was provided in black and white to be used on the about us page of the company website.
On the day we also took individual corporate portrait photographs that could be used to accompany staff biographies, and be used in other marketing materials.

Directors Photographs in Annual Report
For the Smith and Williamson Annual Report, the style of photography throughout is consistent and considered. The directors are all engaged with the camera and smiling to the same degree, to look competent yet approachable. – Douglas, photographer
A big soft box was required to balance the ambient light and the flash, to give a more natural look. A shallow depth of field was chosen to give a sense of location without distracting from the subject.
