NEWS FLASH – Shooting in the great outdoorsPosted in Corporate Portrait Photography, Tips and News from Piranha
Shooting in the great outdoors
Head and shoulders portraits of a senior executive shot against a plain grey or white background are always going to be essential for corporate press and marketing materials.
But don’t forget that for other occasions when your business needs to stand out, these standard portraits might not be powerful enough to grab your audience’s attention or make them think.
Contrast this with outdoor location shots, which when taken professionally, are naturally thought provoking while also providing greater context about the business.
As fashions change, we’ve found clients want their corporate imagery to be fresh and exciting and not me-too and tired. All of which is helping me persuade more and more clients to spare me around 10 minutes of their time to be photographed in the great outdoors.
Take it as read I’ll have scouted suitable locations near to their workplace before the shoot. Then armed with little more than a large reflector and Leica’s fast lenses, I can guarantee a set of portraits in under 10 minutes that are the opposite of business as usual.
If you look at the examples below from recent shoots, you’ll see they look more interesting than a standard corporate headshot.

Board Photography for Sainsbury’sPosted in Board Photography, Individual Board Photographs, Corporate Portrait Photography, Location / Annual Report Photography
The board photographs for Sainsbury’s were taken at the company’s head office in Holborn and featured in the annual report and on the website.
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.

LinkedIn Recommendation from Internet Technology Company for Outdoor PhotographyPosted in Head Shots, Technology Company
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
