Geek Designs Case Study
How photography helped Peterborough based web design business Geek Designs
Geek Designs is a web design and web development business based in Peterborough. Geek were in the process of updating their own company website. As part of their new website they wanted to show clients the amazing team behind the business and approached me to discuss photographing headshots in Peterborough.
Photography studio lighting on location
When working with businesses I bring my studio lighting equipment and set-up for part of the day at their office. A meeting or conference room is enough space to set up my lighting equipment and get ready to photograph the team. Below is my lighting equipment set up and ready to photograph at the Geek Designs head office in Peterborough.
Geek wanted modern and engaging headshots of their team, to use on their website, LinkedIn and offline media. Clients typically choose one colour background for the headshots, either white, grey or black. In this instance though we chose to photograph against all three colours, to give them a wider variety of choice on where to use the photographs. The headshots below of the team were the photographs they chose to use on the ‘Meet the Team’ website page.
Background Colour Choices
These are the headshots for Alex, one of the business owners and founders of Geek Designs. Showing how we photographed the headshots set against different colour backgrounds.
The darker black background is quite uncommon for headshots and makes quite an impact. White backgrounds have a lot of versatility in where and how they can be used. Often the white option can seamlessly be used on websites with white backgrounds. The grey is popular for LinkedIn and lends it self to a more corporate feel.
New team members
As the Geek Design team has grown since my initial visit to their office. I’ve returned several times to photograph their new team members. Keeping with the same style of headshots, lets the business retain a consistent feel on their website and social media platforms.
A few of the latest members at Geek Designs I’ve photographed headshots for as their business and team has grown.
One of the benefits of visiting a business at their offices, is I can offer additional business photography while I’m there. In this instance, for Geek Designs, they wanted some more natural, candid photographs of the team at work in their everyday setting.
