Business Head Shot and Branding Photography

Business, Branding, Website, Head shot and Portfolios - John Woodward Photo

Some say that portraits can be a challenge. Personally, I love trying to get the most from a person, let them enjoy themselves. Portrait photography isn't just about sitting there and smiling. That's probably the worst thing in the world you could do for a portrait shoot. I am there to capture the essence of that person, the soul, the thoughts, mind and beauty of that person. We are all beautiful inside, let me help capture that for you. 

But there is another side to a portrait. It’s all about context. You might just want it as a simple head shot for your work. Got to look good, but we aren’t trying to turn you into a magazine model! Or you might actually need something to sell you. Do you need a re-brand for a business? Does it have to look corporate? There are many places where a portrait is needed and all instances are different. It’s why I listen to your brief, feed it back to you and then try and capture the images you want and need.

Under the slightly different branch of the business, John Woodward Photo, anything from business head shots, to re-branding, images for websites and social media, media stock images and portfolio images for actors, performers and models, I have pretty much done them all! And they are some of the best fun! Chilled, relaxed, fun and above all, right for you. Creative if needs be, I can extract a personality in an image from pretty much anyone. So, if you’re in need of this kind of service for either your business or yourself, see below to see what is involved and prices and click here to get in touch to book.

head shot pricing

I like to keep things simple. For business head shots, I charge by the hour as the number of people being photographed, depending on the company, tends to differ. This way we know we can work out how much time all involved has to do the shots. It works better for you.

£150 per hour

Half Day Shoot (approx 4 hours) £475

Full Day Shoot (approx 8 hours) £750

A brief consultation on what is required with a brief and input from myself to get the best images for you. Please check the gallery for a small selection of styles and genres I cover.

You will get an online gallery of the untouched images within a couple of days for you to check and pick.

5 retouched images per person

Retouched images uploaded to gallery or sent via download link within a week (up to two in busier periods such as peak wedding season etc).

For actors, performers and portfolio shoots, I charge a flat fee with all of the above included as these things sometimes obviously can’t be time reliant


*(if you would like a bespoke quote depending on your needs if outside the remit of any of the above (styled portfolio shoot for editorial etc for instance), feel free to get in touch as more than happy to discuss your requirements)*

Family Photo Shoots - John Woodward Photo

Family and kids shoots used to be that good old fashioned classic white background, the slight uncomfortable and unnatural poses and so on. It still has its place. I have done them myself! But I like to add a little element of that little bit extra. You want to remember you at that time of the shoot as you were as a family. Fun, full of hope and joy, enjoying each other, remembering in years to come those little ones who have now grown up and causing you all kinds of strife.....I am kidding! No, these shoots are all of that and more. An experience, if you will. Having children of my own and based in Cambridgeshire, I get the importance of capturing yourselves in beautiful surroundings. It's important. I hope you like what you see to think we could all do the same. For the shoot, we can discuss what is the best thing for you and your family to get the best of them and can work out locations, styles etc on consultation. If you see below for costs and what you get from me and if you would like to book, click here.
