Research by Piranha finds FTSE 100 company main boards appear to have little ethnic diversityPosted in Tips and News from Piranha
Over half of the main boards (56 boards) of the UK’s leading 100 quoted companies have no directors that appear to be from Black or Minority Ethnic (BAME) backgrounds.
Press coverage discussing Piranha Photography’s research findings –
Clearly these days women are much better represented on the main boards of the UK’s largest public companies although there is still far from parity of the sexes. However, our desk research found that directors from black and minority ethnic backgrounds appear to be either not present at all on the majority of FTSE 100 boards or are the sole representatives of people from non-white backgrounds. More positively, at the operational level, the annual reports of FTSE 100 companies do carry plenty of images of people from BAME backgrounds, which is an accurate representation of their management, staff and customers in modern Britain. - Douglas Fry, Piranha Photography
Need corporate photographs? Here’s a radical ideaPosted in Tips and News from Piranha
Tracking the use of licensed images can be a costly headache. If you use the services of image libraries or some photographers, you will be strictly restricted to their licensing terms.
If you break the terms and use their images, even by accident, in annual reports or any other marketing materials that are not covered by your original agreement, you’ll be facing retrospective fees. And they will find out!
Large companies have the biggest challenge tracking licenced images. With marketing teams spread out over different parts of the country, or perhaps in different countries, they often discover no-one considered seeking permission before they used a licenced image.
Piranha will save you time and money if you’re considering creating your own image library. You can use our images in your library as many times as you like for as long as you like. They can be used across all your marketing materials, including your website, (but excluding advertising) and there’s no extra fee other than our standard shoot cost. Nice and simple.
Why are we doing this?
We have found that the typical lifespan of a set of corporate images is generally just one year. Therefore, with or without a licence clients often want a new set of pictures. Of course, some photographs can be used year on year, but most will be reshot in the natural course of a branding or website refresh.
So the next time you’re commissioning portrait photography, why not allow some extra time in the shoot for me to take some location shots, or shots of your facilities or office interiors?
It will help you build a library of fresh, totally original images that tell the unique story of your business.
I think your photographs are fantastic and there are some group shots in particular that capture a moment so perfectly and look so natural, I think they are brilliant. " -Design Manager, Equistone Partners Europe Limited
