Headshots by Suman Zaman Photography
Whether you are a small or large business, or a consultant working on their own, portraying a professional image is probably one of the most important elements in successfully winning business. First impressions speak volumes so it's important that potential clients visiting your website are left with the impression that your company, and its employees, care about achieving high standards. After all, if you don't care about your image, then why would you care about your clients?
A professional headshot allows your current and potential clients to connect with the 'faces behind the business', thereby making the company more personable.
Still not convinced? Well, have a read of this Q&A and contact me if you have any questions:
Q: I have a camera; why can’t I take my own headshots?
A: You can.
A: Yes you can, but would you pull out your own wisdom tooth? Probably not. A professional photographer will be able to assess the available light, whether natural sunlight or use flashes, and they will be able to pose you to get the best out of you. They will also be able to capture that 'moment’ much better than you/your friend will be able to.
Q: But is it really worth the money?
A: First of all, my rates are not that expensive, but the importance of professionalism, especially on a business page, should not be undervalued. Brand impressions can mean everything in business and a poor corporate headshot can imply that you are an amateur outfit, whereas a well-taken professional headshot pushes the impression of a highly polished corporate entity. Furthermore, why not use your professional headshot on social sites like LinkedIn, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, etc. to promote your business and/or yourself.
Q: OK, you've convinced me! However, I have other colleagues who also need photos; will you charge each of us a £125 session fee?
A: Nope! If we can take all the photos in the same session, then the session fee covers everyone regardless of how many people there are. So if there are 2 of you or 15 of you, the session fee will be the same with just the images for each person charged on top.
Q: I’m in! How do we get things moving?
A: Excellent! Just call me on 07968 062041 or complete an online enquiry form. Even if you’re still not sure, please contact me with any questions and I’ll be more than happy to help as best I can.
I charge £125 for a session fee and £20 per person which includes 3 hi-res images. Additional images can be purchased separately.
Small Business Discount: Please note that I offer a discount to all small businesses (five employees or fewer) and will reduce my session fee to £95.
