Headshots at The Grand Hotel and Spa, York

Continuing from my last blog (see here) I also had to capture some fun headshots for the staff at The Grand Hotel and Spa, York.  I set up a little studio using some of the wall panelling as a backdrop to bring in a little texture.  Now it was a case of photographing and showing the personalities of the staff.

When doing something like this it’s a little bit hit and miss but the key is to just have a laugh, chuck the rule book out of the window and just go for it.  Some staff are a little reserved at first but there’s always ways to make them relaxed and fortunately that’s one of my big strengths.  There’s a very fine line between funny and cheesy which I’m sure we crossed more than once but it’s always going to happen.

Finally, some of the members of staff gathered in a room where I photographed them in a relaxed documentary, honest way.

I think we got some great pictures during my two days with the Splendid Hospitality Group.

Give me a shout if you want some fun staff pictures.
