PROFESSIONAL HEADSHOTS & BUSINESS PORTRAITS

"You will never get a second chance to make a first impression."

 

Every photograph tells a story, but not every photograph will tell the story you want told, and this is where your professional headshot photographer comes in.  Our objective is to help your organization present an image of itself that represents it in the best possible light.  So the question for you becomes: What do you want your professional headshots to portray?  What do you want them to say?  Whatever your story is, we can help you tell it.

 

Let us make your first impression be a great one.

What makes good business portraits? Well, your business portraits are often your prospective client’s first impression of you, and they need to look professional. Your business portraits can mean the difference between lots of phone calls and no phone calls at all. So unless you are a professional photographer (who specializes in photographing people), your business portraits shouldn’t look like you did them yourself. You’re probably also going to want your business portraits to show some of your winning personality! And in most cases, you’ll also want to look friendly and approachable (unless you’re a trial attorney who wants to show how mean you can be in court). We understand this isn’t easy for everyone. So many people tell us that they have trouble relaxing in front of the camera, and that they don’t photograph well. And what we find when we take them on as clients and begin working with them is that all they really needed was a professional headshot photographer who can make them feel comfortable and who can identify the most flattering camera angles and lighting for them.

 

None of our clients are professional models.  Choose a headshot photographer who specializes in creating business portraits & professional headshots of people that they love, when these same people usually don’t like photographs of themselves at all.

We offer two different types of retouched business portraits & professional headshots: 1) the standard studio-style corporate headshots on a backdrop, whether grey, white, black, blue, marbled, or other color; and 2) the environmental business portrait. Scroll through the two pinboards below to view samples of each type of business headshot.

The Environmental Business Portrait

Still not sure whether studio-style corporate headshots or the environmental portrait is a better fit for you?  Here are some pros and cons of each.  Studio-style business headshots are advantageous when you’re looking for standardization between headshots of many employees, such as for a national company with hundreds or thousands of staff across the country.  The disadvantage of studio-style corporate headshots is that they are the standard.  It’s what most companies do, including your competitors.  So studio-style business headshots won’t help you stand out from the crowd the way an environmental portrait will.  In fact, that’s the best feature of environmental business portraits – they’re unique and innovative, and they send the message to your prospects that you too are unique and innovative.  Environmental business portraits are more memorable and will stick in the mind of your prospect.  Furthermore, by carefully selecting the environment in which your environmental business portraits are created, they can also emphasize your business strengths and/or type of business.  So in a nutshell, if your objective is to simply help your clients match faces to names, then a studio-style corporate headshot does that.  But in addition, if you ALSO want your business portraits to help you stand out from the crowd, then consider a series of environmental business portraits.
