The internet is full of video

The internet is now full of video. People are expecting it. As a business, you have to keep a professional image otherwise people who see your photos and videos will discount you as being unprofessional. That wouldn’t matter if it didn’t have a negative impact on sales figures and make it harder for the sales team to make up lost ground!


Legitimacy is everything!

Legitimacy is everything. First you have to look like you can deliver, then you have to deliver in such as way that builds your reputation and brand. If you’re going to succeed in this, you must give some serious consideration to your branding and image.
My advice is to get both head-shots and video clips of staff. That way you have very engaging media that can be used in multiple channels whenever you want to advertise. You can use them on your website, on Facebook, in BLOGS, when promotional material is needed for interviews or media kits, for magazines and printed ads, and for other opportunities. Being able to show who you are with the help of a someone who has experience is a great start to making a splash in the much contested digital landscape.

Here's a thought about headshots and videos

what's the process?

Knocking out the background to make it clean

When any photographer does a modern ‘head-shot’, it means photographing against a ‘chroma-key’ backdrop so the background colour can be punched out, leaving whatever background is desired. 

The images at left show me against a green chroma-key backdrop, the resulting head-shot on white, and then a value-add – a video.

The video value-add

If we set up a chroma-key backdrop to do nice crisp head-shots, it can also be used for a video! The image with me against black has been achieved the same way the one on white has – using ‘chroma-key’. The video editing software helps us evaluate the green and eliminate it, placing something else underneath. In this case, I placed the black layer underneath with a Ballarat Gospel Radio logo I refreshed for Good News Radio, and a Steve Barnes Media, Web & Workflow watermark at bottom right.

It has never been easier to look professional with our help.
