Last month I had the opportunity to visit the Institute for Strategic Dialogue (ISD) in London, who are a global counter-extremism organisation; dedicated to powering new generations against hate and extremism.
I love visiting new companies and this was a unique opportunity as the company was looking to refresh its website, and with this employee headshots were also being updated. They had a large team meeting scheduled over a few days which offered the perfect opportunity for me to meet everyone and to capture their new headshots.
I am always keen to ensure that staff members are fully prepared for their headshots, so prior to my arrival I sent them my top tips for preparing for commercial headshots; and as you can see from the images below, everyone was ready and looking fantastic when the morning of the session arrived.
The primary aim of any commercial branding session is to obviously maintain that consistent style across all employees that represents both, the corporate brand and sentiment of the organisation.
For me however (and thankfully my clients) it is just as important to tease out the employees personality and individuality during the session; because after-all their individual personality likely contributed towards them being hired, so why would anyone hide it?!
