Commercial Photography & Video | Chris Mann | Guildford Surrey UK

Every business needs images and video – to present its products and services, introduce staff members and executives, and explain its vision and approach in print, broadcast and online

I have more than fifteen years experience as a commercial photographer and filmmaker working with businesses of all sizes, from sole traders and local small businesses to corporations such as Toyota, Canon, Mercedes, and HSBC.

My areas of expertise include business headshots and location portraits, corporate event photography, architectural and product photos, and promotional and instructional videos.

I am based near Guildford in Surrey UK but am happy to travel.

Corporate Headshots - a no-fuss approach

Clients often comment on my relaxed and friendly approach to corporate headshot photography, creating flattering and stylish portraits while putting nervous subjects at their ease.

I bring my portable studio setup to your location, minimising time away for your staff and ensuring that we get exactly the images you need.

Typically I shoot a selection of plain-background images, ideal for social media, business cards, or presentation use. The pose can be as formal or relaxed as you prefer. If desired I also shoot some “environmental” portraits showing your team in context in the workplace.

Very often when I'm doing headshots they are of people in business dress who work in offices. All good, but not much variety! So I was pleased to be asked by craftsman Will Lingard to create some portraits of him.
