Group Photograph of Communications Team for Website

Posted in Communications Company, Group Photograph of Board Members, Head Shots, Websites

Piranha was commissioned to take a group photograph of the team at 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.

Piranha spent a few days photographing the staff of this internet technology company and received the below LinkedIn recommendation.

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.

Keeping clients, journalists and publishers happy with fresh and contemporary photographic content

Posted in Head Shots, PR Photography, Tips and News from Piranha

Portrait Photograph of Director taken for London private equity business by Piranha Photography

Above photograph featured in Private Equity International

Contemporary 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
