Commercial Photography for Hunters Estate Agents in Carshalton

As many of you will know, I quite often undertake commercial photography work alongside my staple diet of weddings and portraits.

These types of jobs generally range from corporate head shots of management and staff, through to more illustrative images of how a business works, it’s environment and or possibly a product(s).

Regardless of the genre, it’s always lovely to see when your images are being put to good use and are out there ‘working’ for the client.

I have seen a great example of such a case in recent months from one of my clients from last year – Hunters Estate Agents in Carshalton.

I carried out some corporate head shots for Fleur and Stacey who are part of the management team.

Normally as is the case with head shots, these generally tend to be used on the company website, some social media profiles, and possibly in some form of print/brochure work.

I was pleasantly surprised to that Hunters had been a little more creative in their usage, and had in fact taken it to a new level; large graphics on their company car!

What a genius idea.

A lot of people might ask why would putting two staff members faces on a car particularly work or be a good thing?

Well, for a start it’s different – it stands out and catches people’s attention as it’s not a regular occurrence so that will be aiding the promotion of the Hunters brand.

Secondly, Hunters pride themselves on a being a family run business, and one that therefore appeals as a more personal estate agent rather than a chain brand like the larger companies.

So with having their faces on the company car means that they will not only be creating brand awareness, but also in many ways personalising the brand and making it more approachable – people will feel that they are dealing with ‘people’ rather than another company.

I’ve popped two photos here below of the ways that Hunters have utilised their head shots for you to see for yourself.

If your company could do with some new head shots, and or if you’d like to have a professional head shot for your social media and Linkedin page – why not check out our commercial photography gallery and drop us a line to discuss how we could help you and your business.

Toddler Portraits

Thought that I’d pop up a post of a recent small portrait session I shot of two young sisters.

Mum had wanted to get some portraits of the two girls together, and so brought them along to the studio here in Carshalton for a session.

As with all things child related, as soon as you start adding multiples of children, the harder the task becomes – trying to get more than one child to engage with the camera at one given point is a tricky thing… I pity those school photographers out there, I’ve no idea how they do it, day in day out – I take my hat off to them!

Anyway, without further ado here’s some of the cute shots from that session.

6 Month Year Old Studio Portraits

A young little lad called Noah, who we’d photographed as a newborn in the past, came back to the studio here in Carshalton with mum for some portrait shots of him at the 6 months age.

Generally we advise photographing children at the following stages for a good variation and to fully illustrate their journey of growth in their first year;

• Newborn (within the first fortnight of birth)
• 6 Months Old
• 12 Months Old

Noah, was an incredibly cute little fellow, and very photogenic!

We managed to get some lovely portraits of him, both alone, and also some with his mum.

You can check a small selection of these here below.

A newborn studio portrait session with baby Noah

We recently welcomed baby Noah to our Carshalton based studio for a newborn baby photoshoot.

Mum, Gemma, brought him along as she wanted to ensure that they recorded photos of their new arrival in his cute and miniature form.

Babies and children grow so fast, so naturally many parents want to visually document their child’s journey so that they will have a collection of photographs to look back upon with fond memories in the years to come.

There is something definitely special about newborn shoots – the baby is generally no older than 1-2 weeks old, so they are literally tiny, and at a size that they will never ever be again.

They are cute; so small, so innocent, so vulnerable, so reliant on mum – and so precious to their parents – this is a new chapter in the parents’ lives, and they quite rightly want to record and celebrate this joyous occasion.

Of all the portrait shoots we do, newborns are a lengthy affair, with each sitting taking on average between 2-3 hours a session (it generally depends on baby) to capture a nice selection of portraits. It’s not something that can be rushed, and it does require patience, but it’s all conducted in a relaxed environment within the studio and both baby and the parents are made fully comfortable and put at ease throughout.

The key with any newborn shoot is that baby’s safety and comfort is paramount, and is never jeopardised at any point.

All the poses and props that we conduct and use fully comply to this principle.

You can see a handful of the shots from Noah’s shoot here below.

Baby Ronnie’s Newborn portrait photo shoot

Aside of the wedding work that we carry out throughout the year, we do also cover various portrait shoots of families, children and newborn babies.

These can be either studio or location based portraits, depending on what our client prefers.

One form of portraiture that we frequently get requests for is babies, whether that be at the newborn stage, 6 months or 12 months – we cover all of these key ages.

Why not have a look at one of our newborn shoots from a few months ago here to gauge a feel for the type of shots that we’d look to capture for a typical newborn shoot.
