My headshot images will capture your warmth and professional character. Whether or not you like having your photo taken, your photoshoot will be a relaxed experience with lots of chat and some directing by me.
I will talk to you in advance to understand your business and the messages that you want to convey in your images. I can do your photoshoot in my studio in Ealing, West London, bring my pro-kit to your workplace, or do environmental headshots in or around your offices, depending on the type of photos you need. I do headshots and portrait work all around London and the surrounding area. Within 3 days of your photoshoot you will be able to view and order your high resolution images in a password-protected website. Images can be delivered to you within 48 hours of placing an order where urgency is key.
If you have a corporate event coming up and need creative vibrant photos to capture and promote it, I would love to do these for you. My style is one of non-intrusive reportage but with energy and enthusiasm. I have photographed many corporate events in the past twelve years, as well as profile and press headshots of key speakers to be used for promotional materials leading up to the event.
I work with all sizes of organisations: one-person small businesses up to large corporates such as Google, Salesforce and the English National Ballet School. I love engaging with different people and understanding what makes them and their businesses tick and this will come across in your photos.
Pricing for all my commercial work is based on either an hourly/daily rate or photoshoot fee plus individual images, depending on your requirements. For guidance, a one-person 1-1.5 hour studio headshot photoshoot with a number of different outfits and backdrops is £350 for the session plus five digital images. Once I know what you would like, I would love to give you a quote. Please just ask.
Please be assured that I have introduced a few new measures in my studio so that we all stay protected from Covid-19:
- Extra scrupulous cleaning of the studio surfaces immediately before customers come in, including disinfecting any touch points: door bell & knocker, chair arms, door handles, studio toilet/sink touch points and always fresh towels.
- I will wash my hands before starting the photoshoot and ask customers to do the same on entering or use hand sanitiser provided in the studio.
- We will observe social distancing at all times but I am very happy to wear a mask if you would like me to, please just let me know.
- During the session I will refrain from touching anything of yours if at all possible, but will wash or use hand sanitiser at regular intervals as a precaution.
- If it’s not too cold outside I will have the windows open for maximum ventilation.
- I will contact you the day before your photoshoot to check that both you and I are well and confirm that neither of us are showing any Covid-19 symptoms.
"Melanie makes me feel super-confident. Being photographed can be daunting, but she makes the experience relaxing and fun. Having the difficult task of trying to choose the final photos due to loving so many is a great sign! She’s incredibly easy to work with and always offers loads of time, care and fresh ideas to give me exactly what I need. Thank you Melanie!"
