AGM Team Photographs for The Last Hurdle
They’re a funny lot over at The Last Hurdle – the Business Development Specialists. I think they’ll forgive me for saying that because I mean that as a genuine compliment. Shooting their team photographs was always going to be fun.
I have known Jules for a few years now and I have seen her team grow to the size it is now, and I know that it will only continue to grow. It was their Annual General Meeting, and Jules saw an opportunity with all the team in one place and most of the new starters settled in, to get some individual and team photographs.
Jules had done her research, we had a couple of set-piece images that we needed to achieve, and that is always good. To have a plan helps to focus the mind and then all the other images will just slot in as and when they happen. Their office, although filling up with new team members by the week it seems, had enough room for me to arrange my mobile studio set up. The big lights can be daunting, we had the usual “I don’t like having my photo taken” from most of the team (although certain members of the team were less inhibited!) but we managed to relax everybody and soon we all got into it. Before long we were all done, the gear was packed away and the Last Hurdle AGM could continue, full steam ahead!
And what’s with Snoopy? I hear you ask …
Well, those of a certain age will know of the “Snoopy Dance”, you know, the one where you have a really good day, and everythings going really well … that’s what those pictures are for – the “Snoopy Dance Days”
Jon Farmer from JPFoto is a delight to work with. Jon recently shot our team profiles at our AGM, making great suggestions, calming nervous, quietly encouraging for shy members of the team and re-assuring us all.
The results are FANTASTIC really capturing our spirit, and are a long way away from the normal corporate images you see. Thanks Jon for your patience and creativity, thank you also for going that extra mile ensuring we have the right sized images for web and print and removing backgrounds. I am looking forward to seeing you again at next years AGM so you can capture the team spirit once more
