Projecting the right first impression
St Helens based Dewa Consulting provides mental health first aid training and consultancy services to companies and individuals. As well as training it provides wellbeing strategy and implementation. Deanne Walsh, Dewa’s CEO came to see to one of our Headshots Days in Lymm near Warrington for new corporate headshots for her Linked In and other social media profiles.
We asked Deanne to tell us in her own words about how she felt about her headshots session and how she felt about the final photos. This is what she said:
How you’ve felt about being photographed in the past?
In the past, I have avoided having professional business photos taken, as it has always felt out of my control. I couldn’t choose the pose, the impression I create or the images that would ultimately be used. Like most people, I don’t like seeing photos of myself and am very self conscious posing. However, from the moment I engaged with Andrew, I knew it was going to be a great experience. Andrew took time to explain in a call what the session would involve, how I should prepare and what would happen on the day.
How you felt being photographed by Andrew?
Being based in St Helens, Warrington is close so it was easy for me to go to the headshots day. When I arrived, the team were delightful. Easy to talk to, the atmosphere was so relaxed and they made me feel very comfortable immediately. My make up was touched up for the camera, I was advised which clothes to wear and the time arrived …. I was a little anxious, but Andrew really took the time to put me at ease. He took the time to understand my business, and me as a person, thereby building his view of the shots he needed to get that across in just a few images. He was careful to explain why we were using certain poses, using humour to reduce the tension and making encouraging noises when he looked at the shots he had taken 🙂
How did you feel about the photographs when you received them?
I was delighted to receive the photos. No awkward viewing with the photographer … they were delivered to my inbox, with plenty photos in a viewing gallery that I could review as often as I wanted to before choosing the images that I felt best suited my brand.
The whole experience was positive. The Head Shots package was great value, the communication was perfect, the team were amazing, the quality of photos were brilliant and I am totally delighted that I chose to have my photos taken by Andrew. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend him and the service to anyone.
