Business Portrait and Creative Outdoor Portraits. Norse Group Park Rangers
A Portrait doesn’t always have to fall under the Corporate Banner, nor do they have to be shot in an office or business premises. We are ve®y much tuned to seeing lots of stock images of pristine suited, dynamic business people a cross stock photography sites and whilst many people would love to look like a Vogue or GQ model, shooting real portrait imagery for clients is very much about the real personalities Outdoor Portraits are a creative way to capture staff in a variety of working environments and on location, which can make portrait images extremely attractive. Our commercial photography team headed out this week into the heart of Suffolk to photograph a team of park rangers and volunteers working on the creation of a beautiful woodland park area for Norse Group. The portraits were diverse with a range of ages and backgrounds. It’s always important to remember that not every Business Portrait will be a CEO or a Managing Director of an office based business. Shooting professional portrait images is about capturing the personalities of our subjects and delivering profile images that they would happily be see in print, on a website or posted on social media channels.
Outdoor Portraits can also put people at ease. Removing a staff member from their work environment for a one to one shoot means that pressure from other staff and worries about being behind the camera can soon be forgotten. Now that the weather is getting nicer, it was a great chance to make use of the sun, which can be pretty overpowering for location portraits. Using professional, portable studio lighting allows us to manage the lighting regardless of how bright the weather may be. We’re often asked if we outdoor setups across autumn and winter, and the answer is ‘of course’ unless it raining, which oes cause a multitude of problems if shooting outside. Fortunately, we are usually able to build in contingencies for our outdoor portraits because we all know weather can be extremely unpredictable.
