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
BBC Website Photography by Douglas FryPosted in Tips and News from Piranha, Location / Annual Report Photography
These images featured on the BBC website . The themes supplied by the BBC for the photography vary and so the subject matter can be anything the photographer decides to choose. These are particular favourites, that have appeared on the website recently. They tend to choose quirky slightly unusual images, that stand out visually and prompt the viewer to think differently. –
Shooting In The Great OutdoorsPosted in Corporate Portrait Photography, Outdoor Portraits, 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 Recent portrait photography by Piranha might not be powerful enough to grab your audience’s attention or make them think.
Contrast this with outdoor portrait photography by Piranha 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.

LinkedIn Portraits for Private Equity ClientPosted in Private Equity Company Photography, LinkedIn
Good to see one of our photographs being used to accompany a LinkedIn post this week.
Congratulations to Inflexion on their 20th anniversary – A private equity company I have been working with for many years now, the corporate photography has changed and developed over the years, leaving behind the more formal look, and progressing to the contemporary approachable identity seen today on the new website. The brief from the design agency was to capture the personality of the subject, shown within the context of their new Marylebone offices. This required soft lighting from a large Elinchrom flash to light the subject but allow the ambient light either from the windows or even the rooms beyond to be on a parity. The depth of field was to be shallow too, so that the background was distracting in the image, I used my Leica Noctilux which has exceptional properties not least its fast aperture for that signature look. As always time with each person is limited but everything is set up prior to the subject arriving with test shoots and client approval, this means the time with the busy director etc is as efficient as possible.
