Want to make a strong first impression?
Image is everything! Let me handle your executive portrait or corporate headshot photography and you won't be disappointed! G'day, I'm Fred McKie, a Brisbane-based AIPP-accredited professional photographer who loves helping clients stand out!
Did you know that online - or in print - you make a first impression with your face? LinkedIn research has revealed that including a profile picture can make your profile 14 times more likely to be viewed. And the better the quality of your headshot, the more attention it grabs!
I shoot environmental portraits and studio headshots for people of all walks of life - executives, entrepreneurs and emerging talent - and I'm hired by multinational corporations, companies, small businesses and even individuals simply looking to make a better impression on LinkedIn. There is no doubt about it; for anyone and everyone who wants to excel, a professionally photographed, flattering and engaging portrait or headshot is absolutely worth the investment.
For environment portraits, it makes sense to photograph you in a space that has meaning to you and what you do. For example, if you're a CEO or executive, the boardroom is an obvious choice. As such, for such photographs, I always come to you.
For studio headshots, which are usually shot against a white, grey or coloured backdrop, you have choice: you can come to my studio in the World Knowledge Centre building at Springfield Central or - providing you have a suitable space for me to setup a makeshift studio - I can come to you.
I tend to use a combination of ambient light and studio flash, utilising the Profoto OCF B1 and Profoto OCF B2 battery-powered strobe lights - incredible technology that has made shooting on location so much quicker and easier than in years gone by.
All clients are given the option of professional hair-styling and make-up and, for headshots, you will also have the option of choosing the background colour or leave it to me! I can use gels on my lights to create myriad different colours on the backdrop.
My services include either fully in-house post-production or utilising highly talented professional retouchers to ensure delivery of beautifully polished image files.
My clients also benefit from an effortless online proofing tool that dramatically simplifies the process of choosing images for retouching and supply following a photoshoot, including enabling you to review sets of images grouped by relevant keywords. (Curious to see this in action? Be sure to let me know ... I'd be happy to send you a link to a sample proofing gallery or provide a demonstration!)
Your investment will be the same regardless of whether your portraits or headshots are taken in-studio at Springfield Central or on location anywhere within 35 kilometres of Springfield Central, which includes both Brisbane CBD and Ipswich CBD.
Please note: Shoots on location are limited to either environmental portraits, such as you in the boardroom or at your desk, or corporate headshots photographed using a portable, pop-up backdrop. Due to the weight and bulk of our seamless backdrops, three-quarter length or full-body portraits with a solid colour background are always photographed at our studio, without exception.
