As a professional photographer who has been photographing people for over 12 years, I love to inspire my clients to push the boundaries of what a professional corporate portrait or headshot can be. Yes I do photograph professionals in my Sydney studio in Rozelle with various backgrounds and studio lighting. But what I love the most is photographing corporate portraits on location and often outside. These days your business profile portrait for LinkedIn and social media doesn't just have to be a really close shot of just your head. I can photograph you in a various photo locations and styles to create a portfolio of images with different looks and styles. The reason for this is to give you a creative mix of images which you can uses for different professional purposes.
Another very important difference between Mackintosh Photography and other photography studios is that your portrait absolutely has to look like who you really are! Not an over photoshopped and retouched plastic version of yourself. People need to see the real you to build trust in your personal image and company branding and ethos. Having said that I do retouch my clients' business portraits, however naturally and subtly. But most importantly I don't change who you are.
The images below are from a photography portrait shoot from last week. The client was Laurel Grey from Happily Organised. Laurel was the perfect client; we happily collaborated together on the looks and styles of portraits she required. Then it was up to me to photographically create images to match the looks and purposes of the images she needed.
Laural even gave the studio a testimonial our FaceBook Page. Justin gives personal and professional service - I needed some new corporate shots and he innately knew the right spot at Circular Quay. We got great shots in under 40 minutes - easy and painless! Thank you!
