Headshot Photography for the Board of the Single Source Regulations Office in Central London.
What a pleasure it was to photograph the Board of Directors and Staff of the SSRO, the body which regulates the UK government’s procurement of ‘single source’ or non-competitive, military goods, works and services.
The brief was to produce a new set of headshots for use on their website, internal reports, publications and ID cards and to take the photographs on location at the SSRO offices in Holborn, central London.
Headshot photography of this sort is usually done at high speed and shot in a Hi -Key format to produce a pure white background, so that the images can be dropped into multiple environments such as websites, reports, marketing materials, ID badges etc….
Speed of shooting is of the essence, as busy executives do not want to be away from their desks for more than few minutes at a time, so the knack is to settle the person into the shoot fast, get them relaxed and get their session done in a very short space of time….All of this was done using the MWP mobile photo studio , which was set up in the SSRO’s Board Room enabling the Board members and staff to work normally until it was time for their photo session, and then get back to work immediately afterwards.
The SSRO regulates the UK government’s procurement of ‘single source’, or non-competitive, military goods, works and services. It is the independent statutory regulator of single source defence procurement, issuing statutory guidance, assessing compliance and determining how the regime applies to individual contracts.
Our principal statutory aims are to ensure that good value for money is obtained for the UK taxpayer in expenditure on qualifying defence contracts, and that single source suppliers are paid a fair and reasonable price under those contracts.
The Single Source Procurement Regime came into force in December 2014, following Parliamentary approval of the regulations relating to the Defence Reform Act 2014 (‘the Act’).
