An alternative to a traditional head shot for professionals is the environmental portrait. If you are lucky enough to have an interesting work space you can incorporate the office into your photos. Location shoots are a little more complicated but ultimately it makes for an eye catching image to promote your business.
I recently photographed a group of interior designers for their website and print advertising. They each wanted to choose their favorite fabric from their collections as their headshot background. Although it is not something I would typically do, they were thrilled with the mix of colors when the images were used together.
The image below was created for a health and wealth coach for her advertising and website use. This image was shot in my studio. We hoped to create a relaxed, casual image that she could use for a myriad of promotional materials.
Corporate headshots have become significantly more important since social media has become an everyday part of the business world. People need/want to put a face with a name when networking. A high quality headshot is a good investment and I try to make it quick and painless for busy professionals. If there are 8 or more people in your office that need headshots, I can come to you
My corporate headshot sessions have increased quite a bit lately. I am finding more and more people are understanding the importance of a polished photo for PR, marketing and website use. Typically I do corporate headshots in my studio for better lighting control but they can be done at your offices if there are multiple people needing them. Makeup/hair artists are available (and recommended) for corporate headshots.
Today’s shoot was unique. Tara wanted new photos…just because. I had photographed her once before, back in the days when she was a Baltimore Raven’s cheerleader. We decided to do a beauty/ fashion photography shoot and I am thrilled with the results. The lovely hair/makeup was done by Caitlyn of Blackbird-Artistry.com
It was no surprise to me that Sarah was promoted to President of Feats Inc. I have witnessed first hand how talented she is and how hard she works.
A professional headshot is important in the corporate world! However corporate headshot photography does not have to be stiff and boring. I have companies that hire me to photograph their employees for websites, brochures and annual reports. It’s a quick and easy session in the studio or if you have more than five employees or executives that need headshots I can set up a session at your offices.
