These are some of my recent corporate portrait photography commissions. Although they are basically single corporate portraits, the photography styles vary depending on the clients requirements. Corporate portrait photography can encompass many different uses from annual reports, online CVs, document pitches, social media portraits, press releases, editorial features and website profiles. The samples below show corporate portrait photography in some of these mediums.

This was commissioned by First Option Ltd. Tim Considine need some editorial portrait photography for a feature in The New Europe magazine.
