Pre-Lock Down HEADSHOTS.ie were commissioned for some corporate headshot photography by a company called Team Horizon based in Castlebar, Co. Mayo. Founded in 2010 it offers specialised engineering services to the pharma and bio pharma sectors. Team Horizon also have offices in Galway, Dublin and Cork. We attended their head office in Castlebar for this particular photo shoot.
The brief was to create company headshots in colour an also in black & white. There were requirements for group photographs along with some working shots to replicate a meeting environment.
First of all we photographed the individual headshots with each person coming to me one at a time. We find that this is the best approach to take. Most people hate having their picture taken and can become self-conscious and it always a good idea not to have work colleagues looking on while the headshots are being taken. As with most offices space can be at a premium but lucky enough the onsite studio that I build takes up a minimal amount of space.
All of the headshots went smoothly in no small part to the people involved as they were all very friendly and co-operative.
There were two requirements for group shots. The first one was need in banner style for their website on a plain background. So rather than trying to fit everyone together which would not have worked I photographed each person individually with a range of different poses. Then specific images were chosen and merged together in photoshop to create a group photograph to their exact requirements. The other group shot was a more straight forward approach in their boardroom. Following this as everyone was gathered in the boardroom I photographed to working shots that resembled a live meeting in progress.
It was an enjoyable photoshoot the people involved were a pleasure to work with, as well as having their own ideas they also were open to alternative solutions. The client was delighted with the final selection of images that were delivered and in the end that all that MATTERS!
