Birmingham is one of the key cities that we photograph headshots for corporate clients. We work with a large range of brands some of which are only based in Birmingham but many with a major regional office there. We have worked with Lockton’s Insurance throughout the UK and now its Birmingham’s turn. For their professional headshots, they have chosen to have a white or ‘high-key’ background for all the headshots. This means that we can replicate this lighting pattern for all the offices so they look the same when displayed on their own website as well as LinkedIn profile pages.
Their offices are in the Snow Hill area of Birmingham close to the Jewellery Quarter and we set up in one of the meeting spaces. Our aim as always is to capture the headshots of as many colleagues as possible without disrupting the working day. We typically only need a few minutes with each colleagues and the schedules always end up changing!
Everyone gets a variety of images and we always find out if they have a favourite side or anything they are concerned about that we can help with. The headshots in this article are the ones that they chose from the range that we took for them. As with many companies, we shoot the men with and without ties on. This gives a formal and more relaxed look for headshots used across different platforms.
