Headshots in Worcester
I was chuffed to be called up by one of our previous video clients, Barbertown in Worcester, when they wanted some new headshots for their website. We had a great time shooting a promotional video for Barbertown, so I was pleased to be going back to produce some headshots for these guys.
Barbertown have three shops, two in Worcester and one in Malvern. The task was to go into each and create some cool headshots of each of the barbers who work there.
Getting the Look!
I’d previously taken a few shots of Jon, the owner, during our video shoot at the Tything shop in Worcester. So initially, I came up with a few ideas for different looks for the headshots by editing these. Jon and Andrea were happy with my ideas, so we set some dates for the shoots.
Getting the shot!
Headshots can be a little dull sometimes, its fair to say. But Barbertown is anything but dull! The shops themselves are super-cool places with great decor and lighting. I wanted to make sure I included this in the headshots to give them atmosphere and context.
I chose to use a non-standard headshot lighting setup, in order to give the photos a slightly edgier feel. This combined with the shop background and the editing style, created exactly what the client was looking for.
The guys and girls at Barbertown are super-fun to work with. There’s always a good bit of banter going on, so getting them to relax in front of the camera wasn’t too tricky. That said, I always try and take headshots in a location away from other employees, to have the best chance of the subject feeling relaxed and not self-conscious.
I found a spot in each of the shops which fit the bill and we got the shots we wanted. Here’s a couple of my favourites:
