Perfect Actors Headshots

15 12 2009

Perfect Actors Headshots:

Getting the right headshot is crucial! This is the only chance you may have to land that role you were dreaming about. Quite a few times we ve had actors who were not happy with their headshots after they had their session with someone else. They went for the cheapest or someone they knew. It is may be a good idea for your personal session but not when it comes to professional headshots with a professional headshots photographer.

Make sure before you choose your photographer – conduct your research, i.e. look around at photographers portfolios and see what their reputation is like. If you like it, then give them a call and have a chat about what roles you would like to audition for and when. So remember – photographer’s portfolio is very important!

Before you photography session make sure to have a lot of rest and drink plenty of water to make sure you don’t look tired and you skin is good. Do not worry about your spots or blemishes, professional photographers can retouch them out of the image and no one would be able to tell if they were there in the first place. Remember – all you need to do is to feel comfortable on the day. Easy to say…yes, it is actually quite easy if you tell yourself you are having a day off and going out with a bunch mates to have fun! Well, I guess you cannot programme yourself but seriously – just relax and have fun…. we don’t bite:-)  Also remember this photography session is for you and it all about you! We know what we are doing and we make sure we are doing it very well!

Corporate PR Photographers in the heart of the City of London

1 06 2009

headshot-london-corporate-photography

Getting right PR for your business is important if not critical in the current economic climate. Image is everything and therefore getting the right message about yourself, your company and your services to your target customers has never been as crucial as it is now.

Being a small, medium or a large business in the city does not mean you should spend thousands of pounds on promoting yourself. Therefore a simple professional corporate photography session could be the right step forward to getting your image and the right message to your customers. Those professional shots could then be used for all kinds of purposes.

First they could be sent to local newspapers or magazines together with the latest news and developments about your company. If the media is interested in your company, those professional corporate headshots could also then be used along with an interview you are approached to give.

Internet marketing rapidly increases competition between businesses, which means millions of potential customers turning to online shops and services for convenience, research and better deals. Therefore, secondly, having the right website with the right imagery portraying professional staff, products and services could help to deliver the right message to your target market and potential customers.

Smaller businesses also need to network a lot on and off the Internet in order to inform potential clients about their services, therefore corporate portraits could also be used for online profiles.

Corporate headshots for CVs are being increasingly important nowadays in some industries as they make your CV look professional. Hence looking good and portraying the right image and personality could increase your chances of getting that job.

To sum up, using professional corporate photography services will help your business to succeed and most importantly it could help you to survive.

If you are in the City of London, then do not hesitate to give us a call, as we are located next to the Bank station.

Fashion Photography Session -What to look out for / What is included (advise)

10 02 2009

 

What to look out for prior to the session:

When looking for a professional photographer, first have a look around and see whose photographer’s portfolio and style you like the best. Have a look around their site for prices, what is included in your session, frequently asked questions, and of cause for the style of images that are displayed on the website.

Once you are happy with everything you have seen and want to go ahead with booking your session, give your chosen photographer a call to see if and when they have a free booking slot available for you.

Be careful when you are calling the number from an advertisement. On several occasions we had to report inappropriate advertisements that were claiming to be us and were displaying our imagery, but had no association with us whatsoever. So, always call a number from the website and not from the advertisement you just read.

Also, be careful, when booking a session with a make-over studio. They usually have professional sales teams working for them making cold calls and hard sales. Many claim that you have won a free photo shoot, with free make up. Then charge you just a nominal fee (which many claim will be refunded). Once you went their conveyer belt and had a photography session, the next step is that an experienced sales person will try and sell you all the images for thousands of pounds, charging around £70 for each image taken.

One more thing – If you are just starting in modelling, it is very important prior to the shoot to visit an agent. See what they say and if they like you.
Most agencies will accept you if they like you without a professional photography session. All they need is a snap shot of you that they usually take there and then. After they sign you, they will send you around to different photographers for test shoots – which will help you to build your portfolio.
We therefore, advise you to speak to your agent prior to the shoot! This is not a discouragement – we work with agents in the modelling industry who already have particular jobs in mind for their clients. However, they are not able to put the girls/boys forward for the shoots without a portfolio. They therefore send them to us. This is also common but with reputable agents.

However, if it is simply a session for yourself or your loved one, then skip the previous advice and read on about what the photography session usually consists of.

There are several things that you should expect from the Fashion Photography session you book with Headshot London Photography:

First, on the arrival we are going to have a little chat with you about the required style you are after. We will also have a look through some images that you might have brought with you that inspired you to have a photo shoot in the first place… and naturally coffees, teas, water and other soft drinks will be offered

Second, is clothes styling. It is always a good idea to bring a lot of changes with you, i.e. tops, bottoms, shoes, dresses, etc… and a lot of accessories too! We will have a look at all the clothing you brought with you for the shoot and will help you to style them.

Third, is the make-up and hair styling. We have several make-up artists working for us on a freelance basis. All our fashion sessions include their services. Depending on the length of the shoot, several make up applications will be done during the day. Full day portfolio will have at least 3 or 4 different make-up applications and at least 3 or 4 different hairstyles if required.

Fourth, after all the preparations we start with the shoot! We have many sets and backgrounds and ideas, as well as the outside area, which should give a great diversity to the shoot.

Full day portfolio should consist of :

Full day modelling portfolios  should include at least 4 different styles:

1. Beauty – to show your skin and hair
2. Underwear/Bikini – to show your body shape
3. Fashion – to show your diversity
4. Commercial – to show your diversity and the character

After the session:

1. All our sessions are all-inclusive, i.e. one package and no other costs involved.
2. After the session we will put all the images taken (minus the edits) in your private online gallery on our website, usually within a day.
3. Email you and your agent the link to your online gallery
4. You can have a look at all the images and then send us the codes of the images you would like us to retouch and also if you would like any of them to be in Colour or Black and White.
5. Half day session usually includes 5 (worth £300) free retouches and full day includes 10 (worth £600). Any additional image retouches are charged at £60 each.
6. All images retouched to the highest quality:
• Spots/Blemishes removed
• Colour adjustments performed
• Nip-tuck (if requested)
7. We usually send you a CD within a week after your session.
8. The CD will include
• Retouched portfolio images
• All the images from the photo shoot
• All images are high resolution and ready for printing

On a final note:

We hope you will find this information useful and it will give you a general idea of what to expect and what to do when getting ready for your fashion photography session.

Corporate Photographers

 

Everybody is talking about credit crunch and many already started feeling its effects.  Media all over the world shouting the news about unemployment, crushing businesses, financial market failures, etc. Therefore many had to step up their game and had to rethink their marketing strategies to survive. Looking good, professional and up-to-date has never been as crucial as it is now.

 

Businesses have been investing in headshots for a while now as they recognise the need to look professional.

 

What is a Corporate Headshot?

For those who do not know what a Headshot is: “A headshot is a 10 x 8 (inches) image and is very similar to a portrait or a ‘mug shot’. 10 x 8 is a measurement and the size of an image. It commonly includes head & shoulders, and focuses on the face of the person”.

 

Corporate Headshot is somewhat similar to Actors Headshot but it is done in colour and has to look more natural, showing a person as they are. Men usually are wearing suits and women are dressed smart in an office-like manner.

 

Corporate Headshot should provide a glimpse into the person’s character and reflect friendly, trustworthy and approachable personality.

 

Many business professionals and businesses use headshots for: Annual reports, Corporate catalogues and advertising, Company publications and websites, Corporate PR (on and offline), Press Releases, Online catalogue/shop/website, Corporate brochures, Mail Order Catalogues, Marketing Literature and advertisements, Product Packaging.

 

Headshots are becoming more important in the business world. Latest developments on the market suggest that many corporate employers nowadays are asking their potential employees to submit their Headshots when they are applying for a job.

 

 

Therefore turning to the industry professional corporate photographers is important. It is true, as we all know that quality matters! Invest in quality and get a better chance of success by attracting more attention of your potential employers and customers.
