As well as offering profile photography sessions for individuals (usually 30 – 60 mins long depending on the amount of images requested) I also do group profile shoots when only a fairly standard head shot is required. It can work out very cost effective and with a good, outdoor location undercover, and some efficient scheduling, you can get some great images in a very short amount of time.
I regularly work with staff members from the University of South Australia, with the shoots mainly at their City West and City East campuses. Individuals are scheduled in 10 minute time slots which gives them the opportunity to have photos in front of at least two building/urban backdrops as well as some using my white background which is set-up nearby undercover using natural light.
The system works well because the sessions are quick and easy, and help people feel very relaxed in what can be a challenging experience, and the undercover spaces mean the changing light through the day can be worked with. Clients receive a range of photos that they can choose from, in both black and white and in colour, and can update their professional image accordingly with photos that show they are friendly, approachable and professional.
Here’s a sample of what has been captured in recent years….
One of the co-ordinators of the sessions, Emily, has written the following testimonial:
“It was a wonderful experience to work with Catherine for our staff profile photo shoot. The brief was simple- to capture a series of relaxed, professional photos for each participating staff member- but the logistics behind the shoot could have been much trickier. Instead, Catherine made it easy by coming out to our worksite to shoot and scouting some great locations here in which to capture the shots. She was able to put even the most camera-shy of participants at ease, and each staff member came away with a suite of gorgeous colour and black and white photos after their short time behind the camera. I’d engage her again in a heartbeat, and it’s been a pleasure to recommend to other colleagues both for the quality of her work and for the positive experience that she has provided to our staff members.”
