As you can imagine, I'm quite passionate about photography and how it's used. In recent years social media has really taken off for small buisnesses and large ones alike and your facebook, twitter, instagram page is often the shop window and first port of call for your business, even more so than your website as friends often make recommendations in conversation on social media and link to your page rather than your website.
So, what does your social media say about you? And most importantly, does your photography reflect the quality and nature of your work? With phones having such good cameras now, and this is only set to get better, many think that a quick snap on their phone is fine, and for some, it may well be but there's more to think about. Is the lighting flattering? Does the image show 'you'? Does it reflect your work? and a fairly basic one but so important, is the image in focus?
I really feel that photography can and should be used to portray you and your business in a positive (flattering!) light
I've recently worked with three local business women, the sessions were short (20-30 mins, they're busy afterall) and after a chat to discuss what they were looking for in a new headshot, we got to work. It was all very relaxed as it's important to get the best out of people and make sure that the photos reflect the person.
Here are a selection of of some images which can be used as profile pictures on social media or websites - images are provided in high resolution and low resultion to fit all uses!
Debs runs two different businesses, Healing Hands and Debs Doggy Holidays, a quick change and Mags being included changed the style of the photos to reflect this.
Annie is a busy lady organising gift and food fayres across Gloucestershire, Herefordshire and Worcestershire as Emporium Enterprises and I met up with her in Tewkesbury for some location photos - I can highly recommend popping in for a browse and of course a cuppa and bacon sarnie!
And finally, let me introduce you to Susie; Susie makes the most delcious cakes and her photos needed to reflect her homely style and kind nature, I was just disapointed that this Blissful Cake was spoken for and it wasn't a prop to be eaten!
