Headshots photo shoot.

I was contacted in November by Esther for a Headshots photo shoot. She had very recently been promoted to CEO of AbScent – a UK Charity focused on smell and taste disorders and their impact upon sufferers.

Esther’s brief was to get some new professional looking headshots to accompany the press releases announcing her promotion.

We met at The Greenbank Hotel in Falmouth where Esther was staying as she had come down specifically for the photo shoot. Esther chose the 45 minute ‘Create’ branding shoot and she got permission from the hotel to do the photo shoot on the premises.

This is always important to secure in advance. Most businesses are happy to accomodate but it is not worth taking a chance on. If you don’t have permission you should find another location that is happy to grant it. And do this well in advance of the shoot.

We did the majority of the headshots photo shoot photography in the hotel suite as the light coming in the bay window was wonderful. We then walked around the hotel finding areas with good natural light and interesting backgrounds. I always bring lighting options, but if the natural light is good then I love to use it. In the 45 minute shoot there is time for a couple of outfit changes as well.

What the client said:


“Janna was fantastic. At quite short notice, Janna was able to arrange taking some professional headshots for website and press, and they came out really well. She was professional and warm, and knew just how to get the best out of the shots.
