Not one day is the same in my world. As a headshot photographer for both corporate and performer clients, I meet such a wide variety of interesting people. Whether its for a very short period when we are photographing a large number of people in a day or for shoots like this one, I am fascinated by the people I meet. Mads is a senior manager at KPMG and is going to be featured in the Danish equivalent of the Financial Times. They needed a range of images from him for the magazine which will be out in April.
Canary Wharf is an amazing location for business headshots
Our ‘Pro Service’ (Click HERE for more information) was perfect for what he was after. I spent a couple of hours with him and got a wide range of images so he had a good selection to choose from. As Canary Wharf is private property, we did have to get a permit to photograph outside. All credit to Canary Wharf Group, they sorted that out really fast. Here is a selection of the images we created for Mads.
The above is actually the last image we took from the shoot. It was freezing cold and very windy but we really wanted to get a dramatic image that incorporated the buildings of Canary Wharf.
From a more casual look to a classic headshot in a matter of seconds. Using the environment, we can create a wide range of business portraits in a short period of time. Although this shoot was for a couple of hours, we often don’t have that luxury because of diaries. We can still achieve a good range of headshots and portraits in less time.
I wanted to incorporate KPMG’s branding into the image without being too obvious. The blue wall panel in ‘KPMG blue’ was the perfect background. That and the distinctive Canary Wharf buildings through the window added to the background of this dramatic portrait.
A comment we often hear from clients is that their offices are not suitable for having headshots taken. I believe I see environments different to many people and knew the accent lights in the hallway would give an interesting and unique background for this headshot. We had to time the shots so the background wasn’t full of people of course.
This is the view from the cafe on the 14th floor of KPMG. Its an amazing view. I love the architecture of Canary Wharf and lends itself to editorial style business portraits. We did have to clear a few tables but it was worth it for the shot!
One more headshot from the cafe using the lights in the background as a unique background. Thankfully the cafe was quiet quiet.
