Headshots for Government, public sector and healthcare

If you work for a public sector body with a large number of staff working across multiple sites and with strict guidelines to follow, Just Headshots is skilled at designing headshot, employee photo and portrait packages that include:

• Regular visits to different sites
Pre-shoot liaison and planning to minimise disruption to routines
‘How to prepare’ guidelines to share with colleagues so they know how to get ready and what to wear
Short sessions for headshots for internal use
Longer sessions for public-facing colleagues to equip them with a choice of images to assist with a wide range of activities

How long does a headshot session take?

At Just Headshots we understand that every minute counts, which is why we work efficiently to make sure your staff can get back to work as quickly as possible.

While it may be easy to reply: ‘How long is a piece of string?’, we are careful to agree a timeframe with clients during the planning stage for their session.

We set up lighting, backgrounds and cameras – which are then tested by our team members – to make sure We do so to minimise every individual’s time away from their work routines, keeping disruption to a minimum.

If time is an issue, we will work around your schedule to ensure your requirements are met in the time available. Should your preference be for a short session, it’s advisable to discuss this with us so we can provide a considered estimate for how long it will take.

Some people may require a bespoke set of photographs and this would mean a longer session than their colleagues. We can discuss this at the planning stage and factor it into the shooting schedule.

What makes a good headshot?

Within government departments and public sector organisations, headshots can play a significant role in demonstrating professionalism and establishing trust.

In a digital age, people are more likely to research public services online than visit a location.

Headshots will be the first impression they have, which is why ensuring a professional and consistent style is vital.

A good headshot should achieve the first but, but importantly, needs to be approachable too which is why we will work with your team to put them at ease and capture a natural, happy headshot.

What is the size of a headshot?

When considering the ‘size’ of your image, it’s important to understand this means its dimensions and the configurations of the digital file you’re provided with.

For some people, ‘size’ refers to its physical profile.

Headshots are normally provided as an 8×10 inch photograph – the standard measure for several professions throughout the UK.

While you can select other options, they risk making your image stand out for the wrong reasons.
Alternatively, and perhaps most importantly, ‘size’ can mean the pixel count of the final image.

A high-quality image can be manipulated or retouched as required, although a good photographer will make edits unnecessary.

Many photographers offer a printing service, which gives you the flexibility to enjoy the image in any physical dimensions you want; attaching it to CVs, use in a professional setting or in other any way you need.

While this is useful, it’s worth remembering digital print services are more affordable and user-friendly than previously when it comes to the dimensions of an image.

Executive portfolios

We can shoot executive headshot and portrait portfolios on location at any business site, urban or rural location and in a studio-style setting.
All executive portfolios include:
• A pre-shoot consultation with each person and the photographer assigned to your project
• Business makeup (if required)
• Several changes of outfit as necessary
• Choice of locations to give to you best mix of real sites and studio backgrounds
• A mix of headshots, three-quarter length or full-length portraits

We come to you

Most government, public sector and healthcare bodies prefer us to visit their premises to take headshots so that staff members’ routines aren’t disrupted too much.

We are happy to travel to locations throughout the UK from our Warrington base, which is close to the motorway network.

That means that we are conveniently placed to serve clients in the North West, North Wales and the North Midlands.

We are sensitive as well to the fact large corporate teams may work across multiple locations and we can be flexible to ensure all employees have a headshot taken that accurately reflects your brand.
