Spiffing Book Covers are updating their website and wanted some new headshot images of the team for their site. They asked for informal natural black and white shots which show a bit of personality.
We wanted to go for a futuristic look and have ended up with Snow Queen/Game of thrones kind of feel! Thats why I love creating shoots with other people as once the process starts it has a life of its own and the outcome can often morph into something different if you let it.

I understand that my clients use their headshots for different sites so it can be useful to bring along several outfits and have a shoot which incorporates a few different looks.

You might be looking for product photography, a new headshot or a series of bespoke images for your website. I recently finished an assignment for Phil Toogood at Cranfield Philips who I worked with on numerous shoots to put together some images specifically for his new website. After meeting with Phil and his website design team Fever we hatched a plan and put together a draft for the different style shoots to fit with his brand and his new website design. See a few of my fave shots below…
This is me up a ladder over the weekend taking pics of the village grass, why you may ask? I got a few looks but was armed ready with a story should anyone ask!
Clients sometimes ask me if I can put together a composite image (), this week I am working on an image which is advertising a football agility tool so I needed a background image of good healthy grass. The grass at the football and rugby club are a bit worn and sparse this grass from Bentley Village green looked perfect. It’s always useful to collect images of the sky, clouds and textures to use for backgrounds so whenever I see something I get my camera to shoot it to add to my background collection.
Simon turned up telling me he felt a bit nervous, he wanted some headshots for his website for another project he is working on and for his personal use. The first image is the one I took when Simon first sat down, I told him not to worry about posing I asked him to tell me a bit about himself and what he has been up to lately, to relax and ignore me as I didn’t want him to focus on me I was just checking the lights. He started to tell me a funny story we both got the giggles, his nerves had subsided so we could then start to take some more serious pics. About half way through Simon asked me if I would mind taking some images of him in his grandads hat (of course I was delighted I love using props) he told me about his grandad and how smart he often used to look he remembers his grandad wearing this hat. I think you will agree the hat suits him…
