Early in 2019 I was asked by Gateway Housing to come and take individual photographs and also group photographs of their senior team. We did this over two days. The first in their East London office with the Executive Management Team and the second at a Board Away Day. It's always good to use events like this for headshots as you have everyone in the same place and don't have to arrange a special day. In order to get as much variety as possible and give us much choice in the future I photographed everyone infront of various different backgrounds. I have to thank all the staff for trusting me when I suggested using the entrance grill to the side of the building and the contractors who kindly moved their vans so we could use it. I think it was worth it.
It was my pleasure to take the photographs of senior staff of the new housing association Optivo. Formed from AmicusHorizon and Viridian the new association is now one of the largest housing providers in the UK. We took photographs in different locations, with different backgrounds so that each person has a variety of shots to choose from.
For the third year running I was asked to photograph the PlaceShapers Conference. It's always such a positive day, packed with representatives from organisations that are a force for good in our society. As well as documenting the event, we took the opportunity to take photographs of the PlaceShapers Board.
I'm Victoria and I photograph people.
