Photo shoot with Ashworth Law – voted Harrogate’s best medium sized business

Ashworth Law Photo ShootAshworth Law are a dedicated team of solicitors based in Harrogate, and recently won the Best Medium Sized Company of the Year, at the Ackrill Media Group Business Awards 2010. I had done some studio work with the team before, and was asked to help them with images for their new website.

The brief was that they wanted images of all the team, taken in the office environment, which would then be converted into black and white and cropped into a square frame. It was also important for the portraits to be a natural pose at work, and not looking directly into the camera.

So the plan was put into action, and I made my way around from desk to desk – its so important with these type of shots to put your subject at ease, as you want the end result to be a natural pose. It was really nice to make my way around, and have a chat with everyone and then click.

Below is the finished grid of images taken for the site.

It makes a massive difference to have really strong images on your website and marketing collateral. As consumers we respond to what we see, and can relate to knowing the people we deal with.

As I was there with all the gear, we also did some further shots of the new starters plus the Chief Executive Mathew Cobley, outside the building, and even a few portraits for Linked In profiles. All this was finished in 2 and half hours, and 50 finished images were delivered back to Ashworth Law.

I really enjoyed working with the team at Ashworth Law and it was great to receive the below testimonial for my images –

‘We would like to thank Sam Oakes for our recent office photos. He was very professional in the planning for the day and made all the staff feel very relaxed. The results were amazing! and we are very happy with the service provided. We would certainly engage Sam’s services again and will recommend him highly to others.’
