Burgh Property was looking to update their website, so began their search for an experienced photographer in Edinburgh and got in touch with me to ask if I could shoot a few photos of business owner Andrew Markham. According to their website, Burgh Property ‘is a small but perfectly formed property management and letting business’, located a stone’s throw from iconic Edinburgh Castle.
Burgh Property was founded by Andrew Markham and after many years of experience of working within property management and letting agency, he recognises the quality of service that landlords and tenants should expect.
Andrew’s brief was straightforward, requiring a selection of photos from which to choose a few to display on the company website and social media web pages. Shooting headshots is quite simple in that it doesn’t require lots of equipment or large studio space. For convenience, we did the photoshoot in Andrew’s home, which also doubles up as Andrew’s office. A small portable studio set-up was used to shoot these portraits of Andrew and colleagues.
I used portable flashes for my key and fill flash, using small softboxes on stands to soften the light from the flashes. We shot all of the photos in Andrew’s living room and used the living room wall as the backdrop. Very effective results in what is a relatively confined area compared to a ‘proper’ studio setup. And all in the comfort of Andrew’s home/office!
Do you like these photos? You might also enjoy my portraits Harry Crombie of Crombie and Co Property Management. Crombie’s photo shoot was a similar brief – head shots for a new website.
We would love to hear from you if you are also looking for a photographer in Edinburgh.
