Several weeks ago I made a trip to Berlin with friends. I travelled light, no check in luggage, so no architectural lens (would have been nice a couple of times) or even a tripod.
Berlin is awesome for architecture, old and new. The TV tower is ubiquitous, a little like London’s BT Tower. The old Templehof airport is coool, would love to get closer access to the buildings.
I have unfinished business in Berlin, need another visit, but I say that about everywhere…
WHAT: Simple but QUALITY HEAD ‘N SHOULDERS portrait for profile use, eg. LinkedIn, company website, other social media.
WHEN: Thursday 15th May 2014, 9:30am till 5pm.
Book a 30 min photoshoot session (see ‘click to book’ link at bottom).
GBP 90 total for 2-4 edited images (you choose from several in a private online gallery, plus you’ll see previews as we shoot).
WHERE: Studio near Farringdon Station (10 min walk), called ‘Model Advice’ on Google maps:
6 Baker’s Yard (Ground floor)
This will be on plain white, plain black, or vignetted grey background (see examples).
Ultimately you want one great photo, depending on time (and whether you laugh at my jokes) you may get a couple of alternative looks to use on different websites. I can also use a coloured gel spotlight on the background if you prefer, but if you’re not sure, then simple is usually best.
Your satisfaction is also guaranteed!
Your final choice images will be edited for colour/contrast, remove the pimple(s) that appeared overnight due to Sod’s Law, lighten bags under eyes a little if needed because you’re working too hard (sleep is important!), other minor touch-ups. If detailed retouching desired (skin smoothening, hair modification, etc), then extra editing fees may apply. You will also get square, pre-sized web versions of your chosen images that can be uploaded straight to LinkedIn, etc (as well as the rectangular full-size versions).
CLOTHING: best wear non-distracting clothing, most of you will be fairly corporate/business-like, unless your business persona/image is more colourful anyway. It’s up to you! Good idea for both ladies and gentlemen to bring a couple of options re shirt/blouse, ties, etc, if possible, but if not just dress low-key.
I would recommend aiming to arrive 15-30 min before your actual session (if you have the time), to allow for traffic delays, time for toilet, change shirt if needed, etc.
SUPER BUSY PEOPLE could choose to arrive 5 min before your session and could be done after 10 min shooting time, but generally it takes a little longer to relax, hear all my bad jokes, get a good photo, etc.

See you there!
Made a quick trip to catch dusk in central London a couple of weeks ago. Was intending to get an updated panorama of the Thames – which I did though I intend to improve on it soon. However, I quite liked how monumental the National Theatre on the South Bank was looking, so did a little study of that, going for minimalist graphic shapes again. I like the slightly converging verticals in the first shot, so chose not to correct them.
There was the usual confusion on set for the team photo this year. But really, we are much better behind the camera than in front of it.
Plus, I think the set was haunted by the Christmas spirit, perhaps in answer to Chief Photographer Charlie’s reluctance…
Merry Christmas and Best Wishes for 2014, from Round-Turner Photography!
Last chance to get art frames for delivery by Christmas!
Rather than an electronic gadget, get your loved one some professionally framed photographic art – something that will stand the test of time.
Choose travel images from around the world (including the UK of course), perhaps somewhere you’ve visited.
Or something from the Clapham (London) scenics gallery.
My latest favourite image, the Millau Viaduct in France:
Products range from simple but stylish photographic prints mounted in white and framed behind glass, to contemporary aluminium block prints, as well as canvas and more.
Couriered direct to you (choose a work address or somewhere you are sure to be), or collect from me in Clapham, south London. An art frame ordered on the 2nd would be estimated to arrive by 18th December, which allows some leeway for delays or missed deliveries. Any questions contact me or phone +44 7814 106 561.
