Lunch Break Headshots

I met up with Deborah who needed fresh corporate shots before starting her new role next week. In a short 45 minutes during her lunch break, we took a stroll around her office through the back streets of Darlinghurst and Hyde Park managing not only to avoid the wind tunnels thereby keeping her hair neat throughout the session but also nailed 14 or so different backdrops for her to pose in front of.

This winter, I am offering a Winter Special Outdoor Corporate Profile Photography Package: AUD $200 for a 45 mins session. For more info: smile@josephineki.com

The Love Boat Proposal

Hansen spent the past few months since the passing of the Same Sex Marriage law orchestrating an elaborate proposal to his partner of 16 years.

Brad arrived at Blackwattle Bay to find himself being serenaded by Hansen’s entire team from Different Strokes Dragon Boat Club as they paddle to shore all dressed in white and matching bow ties singing Bruno Mars’ Marry You.

Congratulations boys so happy for you both cheers to a future of love ❤️, commitment  and happiness.

Corporate Lookbook

What comes to mind when you hear the phrase “corporate headshots”? Perhaps you think of words like boring, traditional, stale, stiff, or forced. But it doesn’t have to be that way. I like to combine editorial style with corporate style to make great profile shots.

Typical corporate headshots are usually taken quickly, so, more often than not, they result in fake, uninspiring smiles. To get shots with relaxed, natural expressions, I like to spend a little time chatting to my clients before even coming up with a location or background for the shot. People, when they’re a little bit calm tend to give you who they really are so I help people to get to that place.

Yesterday I shot some corporate profile shots for the team at Think and Grow Inc – a startup providing executive search and specialist consulting to fast growth technology and corporate customers. I loved this one of Bryn who wins with the best smile of the day!

Engineering Confidence with a Corporate Lifestyle Photo Shoot

Hung out with this mob of consultants from Intrax who provides comprehensive, end-to-end engineering service including: structural, civil, electrical, mechanical, hydraulic, surveying, and geotechnical engineering to building and land division clients. I was contacted by their head office in South Melbourne to get some in situ corporate lifestyle photographs of the consultants at their new Ultimo office as well as some team and interior shots.

By incorporating custom, environmental portraits of the team, Intrax would have the opportunity to show their clients not only who they are working with but how they operate as a team thereby helping the company stand out in a incredibly competitive market.

Meet the Team | Corporate headshots for your Startup

With potential customers, investors and industry writers looking at your startup’s website, a team photos page with strong photography is essential. The “About Us” section is one of the first places people click when looking to learn about your company and is an important part of building your brand image.
I spent a super fun morning on the weekend photographing the team from Flixsense at their new office Hoist Co-Working Space by Mirvac down at the Australian Technology Park in Everleigh. The living heritage precinct combining historic rustic brickworks and industrial locomotive parts  is a perfect backdrop for my client’s tech startup on this occasion.
