The Biz Photography has an ongoing relationship with Smart Business Solutions (SBS), Mornington. We were contacted several years ago by Shannon and Nadia who were looking for a professional photography business to supply them with a range of photos of their team.
They wanted images that portrayed them as a team of professional accountants, based on the the Mornington Peninsula.
It was decided they would like a range of photographs that would clearly place them in the vibrant and thriving town of Mornington. They wanted to stand out from the pack and be clearly identified as a Mornington-based accounting firm.
Shannon and Nadia were clear that they wanted to maintain a consistent look with photos of staff members. It was decided for the first part of the brief that an on-location shoot using an iconic Mornington landscape as the backdrop would work really well.
The second part of the brief was to get images of the staff in the same setting and lighting conditions to show that this was a smart, professional team. To achieve this we set up a studio session.
It was an early start for our professional photographer and the staff of SBC, meeting at Schnapper Point at 6.30 am to take advantage of the soft early morning lighting. Our photographer was able to quickly engage, arrange and capture all of the required staff shots before the lighting became too harsh, all the while framing the images to capture the spectacular background offered by iconic Mornington harbour setting.
After this initial shoot, we met up at SBS headquarters and photographed the staff and directors in and around the office, taking particular care to include the feel and decor of the space, as well as the company’s distinctive branding.
The next day the SBS team arrived at The Biz Photography studio in Balnarring where each member was photographed in front of a corporate grey background. This gave us the consistent, professional look that was an important part of the brief.
The original shoot was several years ago and in the intervening time SBS continues to grow and evolve and staff are added and new roles are being created. The Biz Photography continues to provide new and updated professional head shots from our Balnarring studio, thus maintaining a consistent and seamless look in the company’s promotional material, including the website.
:Basic Editing. Our professional photographers will take a lot of photographs, especially when shooting groups of people. It’s amazing how many times people blink! Part of our job in post production is to work through all of these and delete the images that either don’t quite work or too similar to other images. No one needs an overwhelming number of images to sort through, so we take care of that for you.
:Individual exposure adjustments. Shooting outdoors always has its challenges with light and shadows. The Biz Photography take the time to balance out exposures by lighting shadow and dimming down highlights.
:Cropping. Images can be cropped creatively to add extra impact. With a trained eye we will select images and perform creative cropping, delivering extra images so that our clients have lots of choices.
:Colour Balance. Mixed lighting sources both indoor and outdoor can all create chaos in terms of how an image looks, especially on skin tones. We must get the colours correct. The Biz Photography has a colour-calibrated system that takes the guesswork out of it. We remove colour casts so that the images look natural with a minimum of variation.
The Biz Photography was able to electronically deliver finished images to our client via drop box within one week of the initial shoot. All images are kept on our drop box account free of charge for 12 months. This makes it easy to share image files with third parties or provides added security in case your back-up fails.
Professionally photographed head shots are typically the first point of contact with a potential client. So, it’s imperative that what they see leaves a lasting impression. The Biz Photography has a team of professional photographers on the Mornington Peninsula and Melbourne’s south eastern suburbs ready to create stunning professional head shots that are bound to leave a lasting impression on your clients.
Too busy to come to our studio? Thats OK because we can come to you and set up studio lighting and backdrops at your premises.
