Business Headshots

A corporate or executive style portrait or headshot may not be on everyone's bucket list -- but it should be.  Next time you google yourself, click on the images tab. Like what you see?  Do you think that a perspective employer won't do the same thing?  If all of the images that come up are your late night party shots from facebook, then perhaps you should think about an update!  Your headshots do not have to be stuffy or super conservative -- the trend is clearly going more casual -- but they need to be sharp, well lit and professional.  We shoot hundreds of business portraits and executive headshots every year, so we know how to help you get the desired results.  We often do large and small groups on site, too, so if you have a group give us a call for a quote!

Avoid what photographer’s call FLAT lighting. Think passport photo. The background should appear to be at least partially in shadow, and one side of your face should appear slightly brighter than the other – which adds depth and a look of quality to the image. 2.       BACKGROUND. What’s behind you can make a statement. If you can possibly avoid the vague-mottled-brush-stroke-in-no-particular-color type of background you’ll be taking a giant step in the right direction.  Lots of headshots now are done in natural light, in offices or lobbies where there are subtle architectural features and gentle reflective surfaces.  A solid neutral gray paper ...

Headshots for business
Thursday, March 22, 2012 4:41PM

The old saying about 'never getting a second chance to make a first impression' could never be more true.  Headshots are used for not only your business website but Linked In, Plaxo, Yelp, facebook, match.com, eharmony and everything in between. It's almost like we don't meet each other in person any more!  Be sure your image is consistent and professional in ALL those places.  Don't assume that your mom's snapshot in front of the Christmas tree is going to impress anyone --no matter how thin you look. Get it done right and you'll never have to worry about it six months from now when you decide to start job hunting. You never know who might be looking!We specialize in headshots for professionals. Our turnaround time is about 24 hours and we make it as painless as sipping a latte at Starbucks, so don't delay. It's a great investment of your time. Natural light is the newest most natural look for your people -- we can work with your communications people, your PR firm or your web designer. And if you are ALL of those things, we can help you figure out what you need. Your environment or our studio, either way you win.
