Introducing New Members

Clive Allcorn – Headshot Photography for your business

Is your online presence up to scratch? Are you still using selfies in your staff personal profiles? Do you struggle to find suitable images for your company publications and marketing materials? If so, there is a new photographer on the block and I would love to work with you to produce corporate headshots that will reflect well on your business.

Firstly let me introduce myself as I am new to the Marden Business Forum. After a 40 year career in Kent Police, I have decided to turn my passion for photography into a business. I love to work with people and photograph them so I specialise in all forms of portrait photography. In my spare time I am an accomplished underwater photographer and also love to work with models and artists to produce beautiful images. As a new business, my prices are reasonable but my work is excellent.
