People – portraiture

This captures individuals in a more professional stance and are used for channels such as Equiniti.com or social media. This concentrates on faces and should reflect personalities. Either capture this shot on a neutral background with the person wearing neutral, muted colours and limited patterns, or preferably, capture them in the reportage style, described above, where you capture them in the moment and create a close crop of the overall image.

  • Capture the person in a space/environment reflective of what they do where possible
  • Show more than just head and shoulders, try to capture from the waist up
  • They don’t always need to be looking at the camera

Buildings and architecture

Architecture is a good way to portray stability, strength and balance. This imagery should be of abstract nature, using sections and crops of dynamic structures and should be bold or striking in colour.

Landscapes/ Cities/Locations

Our use of landscapes and location settings are to reflect scale and reach, how we operate globally and the many millions of people we interact with. They are also used to portray subjects that are otherwise harder to represent such as change and regulation

  • The image should be vast
  • Add a human perspective where possible and showcase spaces in use
