Coppa Club

1. The Coppa Club, Haslemere

 

One of my new favourite locations for a micro business brand shoot in Surrey is the delightful Coppa Club in Haslemere. It has such a beautiful, calm and welcoming atmosphere. There’s a lovely variety of spaces, which offer a range of backdrops for your brand photos including desk areas, a large meeting room, casual cafe style seating and sofas.

 

I love a shot by an interesting wall, as they can create personality filled profile photos plus photos with negative space, perfect for website hero shots! And there’s a beautiful old stone wall by the Coppa Club.  There are also pillars and steps leading up to the front door, perfect for adding some depth or simple interest into your brand photos.

 

Here’s some photos from brand shoot for Katie Schuster Comms, taken inside and outside the Coppa Club:

The Runnymede on Thames Hotel near to Egham Surrey is a delightful location for your brand photo shoot. Although you have to hire the meeting rooms inside, you can actually get a wonderful variety of photos with the different backgrounds available outside. The outside of the hotel and surrounding areas offers a lot of my favourite things - large glass windows, water, trees, steps and lovely places to lean and sit on and create depth and interest. 

 

Outside the hotel and along the river Thames offers clean, modern and contemporary photos opportunities and you can also bring nature and water into your photos.

 

Here’s some photos from Online Business Coach Heidi Maddy’s brand shoot, demonstrating the variety of backgrounds and photos from headshots to profiles to those with negative space, that you can get from a brand shoot outside the Runnymede on Thames.

3. Royal Holloway, University of London, Egham

As soon as I walked round the Royal Holloway, I knew I wanted to do a brand photo shoot there! There are so many different types of buildings and textures that it offers something for every type of small business brand. From wooden buildings and woodland areas offering a rustic and natural feel, to the Harry Potter Hogwarts style main building which gives a magical and stately appeal, to the modern glass library for modern fresh brands, to the cloisters and grand staircase for those that want a traditional feel. 

 

There’s also a range of trees, steps and beautiful places to lean on, to create lovely lines and interest through your brand photos. 

 

These photos were taken from a brand shoot I did with some fellow photographers one autumn morning, at the Royal Holloway:

The next location I recommend for brand photo shoots in Surrey, is the striking Park Hotel in Teddington. This hotel has a welcoming, traditional feel with colours and furnishings that offer a professional but warm and approachable atmosphere. 

 

Again, this venue offers both inside and outside options, which is one of the things I look for in a great brand shoot location, all in an easy to reach, compact area, with free parking.

 

The space is wonderful for creating client connection brand photos, as well as website hero shots with plenty of negative space, profile photos and storytelling photos that will help your audience engage with you and your brand.
