Business and Corporate Portrait Photography Edinburgh


People make businesses – so true!

Very satisfying to go to different businesses and locations to take business style photographs of  staff members and management.

As well as gaining new clients, I photograph new team members at the large firm Gillespie McAndrew solicitors in Edinburgh, STR Reserach,  Architecture & Design Scotland and others to photograph new board members who join the teams.


What do I set up?

I’ll bring two or sometimes three off camera flash, a reflector, tripods and stool and can shoot in quite confined space if need be.  Of course good space helps those being photographed and just makes it feel a bit less intimidating. So something like a 3m by 5m space is a rough minimum.

A common request is for completely white background so that it fits nicely into white background web sites for bright clean look and no image borders. I just need a light coloured background and white or near white is ideal.

However I can bring backgrounds and stands which can be used to create grey style backgrounds with different light effects – or lit to make white. I also have ‘Chroma Green’ background and this allows any kind of background to be added in post production – this is used a lot on TV ( weather forecasts).

This was a fun shoot for Experience Scotland, an incentive travel company based just outside Edinburgh.

The brief was a portrait that reflected a hobby and another more formal. I worked with the team to develop ideas for props and style.

Sadly just after the images were supplied to the company, Covid 19 restrictions came into force and subsequently some of the team were laid off or went onto furlough.

Staff photos for Tangram (furnsihers) in Edinburgh.

The brief: fun, easy going photos. Not sure they did go with the really fun ones in the end! But the slides below show just a few of those taken and the one each person picked. Shot in colour (obviously) but done in post production in colour and copies done into B&W. Tangram link.

Great fun shoot and going back to photograph the shop interior and some new furniture.
