Headshots & Working Photos

I find myself quite often asked by small businesses to come in to their offices to take some staff headshots as well as some photos of the team 'at work'.

Capturing great photos of people at work is not as simple as it sounds. Often real office work is not worthy of a photo. Most of the time, photos of someone using a computer or having a conversation on the phone won't look very dynamic or interesting. So most of the time I find it works better to set photos up artificially. It doesn't take much to do so. Often it's as simple as having a few team members sit together in the right light and have a meeting, although it's important that everyone looks engaged (which is not always the case in normal meetings!).

Below are some examples of the types of photos I mean, mixed in with some headshots from a few different recent shoots.
