Adrian, the MD of Oval Business Solutions based just outside Godalming in Surrey, is another client who preferred environmental style corporate headshots to studio photos. When I met him at his offices I could see why.

Set in the beautiful surroundings of Peper Harrow, just outside Godalming in Surrey this location was actually where they filmed Robin Hood starring Russell Crowe. It’s also the home to Adrian’s business, Oval Business Solutions.

Adrian didn’t want the classic studio headshot with the white background. Instead we asked for something more atmospheric that utilised his office space. This style of headshot has a much ‘softer’ look to it than the crispness one finds with studio lighting. There’s a great comparison on this blog post with another client where we used both techniques on her shoot.

The Oval Business Solutions’ office was bright and airy which was perfect for what we needed leading to the creation of some cool images. Especially at with the boardroom table where a little contrast tweak really brought out the reflection in his boardroom table.

I hired Gavin to take some professional portrait shots. I was way out of my comfort zone, but Gavin did a great job of making me feel relaxed and natural, inspiring a sense of confidence and even fun! He evidently knows his stuff and also understands the importance of good communication, punctuality and expedience. I would definitely recommend Gavin.

Out of interest there is a second version of the first image that Adrian also liked and I’ve shown it below. I’m curious to know which you prefer? The one with Adrian looking at his laptop screen or the one looking at the camera?

Pro Tip: Props such as laptops and mobile phones can date an image very quickly – designs are constantly changing making what was once state of the art look tired and antiquated. Think carefully before incorporating them into your corporate headshots, especially if you need them to stand the test of time.
