Non Corporate Corporate Portraits

I got asked to do a series of different pictures of staff at Amor Group – the place where I’m currently gainfully employed for four days a week.

The Marketing Director told me to “…think less stuffy corporate headshot and more Stephen McLeod Party Photographer Extraordinaire”.

Okay then.

To avoid being just another corporate mugshot, you don’t need to be overly conceptual or wacky; you just need to inject a bit of personality into the pictures. None of this posing with props business, and certainly not any more standing with arms crossed in front of office blinds.

Instead, I just deployed my usual tactic of sitting and talking rubbish until the person relaxes for just long enough to trip the shutter.

You can even get some really interesting, natural stuff this way…

It’s hard to be corporate at f0.95.
