I recently found a new supplier that has an amazing selection of interesting and creative backdrops that we have started to introduce into our portfolio. Luckily the day they arrived, we had a shoot with Dan who booked us for his London headshots. Dan is a successful sales executive for a leading promotional merchandise company. I know he looks young, but he is a very driven and career minded individual. I shot Dan in about 30 minutes as he had popped out during his lunch break. He wanted variety in his images so we spent just a few minutes on each look before swiftly changing the setup.
Whether we are photographing headshots in a plush office or a solopreneurs home, we want to be able to provide as many options as possible. We often use the environment that we are photographing in to create the background or many of our larger clients opt for a solid colour such as white or grey to future-proof the ‘look’. In addition to these staple options, we have over the last couple of years started to introduce pop up backgrounds that can create a more interesting look to an image while guaranteeing that we can replicate the look and feel over numerous shoots and in different locations.
