Corporate Headshots for Legal Businesses

London Corporate Headshot Photography


Shoosmiths

"Shoosmiths is a major UK law firm with a network of offices working together as one team. Learn more about our values and the culture that drives our people to build relationships with clients to deliver the results they need." - Shoosmiths.co.uk

Nationwide Headshots

Shoosmiths have a network of 16 offices, hosting 1600 employees across the UK. Such an extensive network creates a high demand for corporate headshots for both existing employees and new joiners. The Commercial Photographers Network (of which I'm a member) has recently taken on this client to photograph these headshots. 

The Photoshoots

Each of the headshots are captured in the meeting rooms of a Shoosmith's office. These corporate headshots have all been taken over the course of 14 months. Keeping the same lighting style, body position and lens compression make for a cohesive look to these headshots for lawyers.

Shoosmiths Chosen Background

The overall look for these London headshots was decided by Shoosmiths head office. Creating one consistant look that can easily be recreated for every department, of every office in every location.

Shoosmiths wanted their corporate portraits to have the employees look off camera with a branded the pull up banner in the background. While there will always be minor variations in peoples height (changing the background), and clothing (changing the colour contrast), we've been able to hone in a specific look that is clearly a Shootsmiths headshot.

Shoosmiths are busy....Commercial Photographers' Network

They don't have time for each office to find photographers for each of their offices. Shoosmiths are a brand and need to show consistency across their company. Solving a problem of multiple locations across the UK either needs one travelling photographer or a single network of photographers based all around the UK, who work together on assignments like this.

Headshots on a Budget 

While these London corporate headshots are not done in a cheap way, there are certain elements that reduce the quality and make them cheaper to produce. These are mainly around the post production side of things. Editing headshots in photoshop add the final polish to photographs that create that extra depth and dimension to make the portraits really stand out. As these images will mainly be used internally, Shoosmiths felt only a limited level of post production work was necessary.
