HEADSHOTS, BUSINESS and
PERSONAL BRANDING PORTRAITS


HEADSHOTS

Professional headshots help you make a great first impression. And they're not just for actors and models. Whether you're an entrepreneur, real estate professional, job seeker, or just someone who wants to put their best foot forward on social media, I can help you achieve the look of confidence you're after. In studio or on location, one person or a team of 100, I can bring everything I need with me to create studio-quality headshots in your office or anywhere else.

WHAT IS A HEADSHOT?

By most definitions, a headshot is simply a close-up photo of an individual that includes the head and shoulders, and part of the torso. Typically it would be shot on a simple background in a vertical orientation and would not extend below the waist, but modern headshots can certainly blur those lines for a variety of reasons. (You'll see examples of those differences in the gallery below.)

By way of contrast, any full-length or 3/4-length photo used to promote your business (or yourself) is what I call a business or personal-branding portrait. I've got more examples toward the bottom of the page. They're usually less formal and often include backgrounds that give a hint as to your work or your passions.

Portraits shot in the workplace can also include dynamic activity, often with multiple people interacting, I call those "environmental" or "lifestyle portraits." You can see examples of all of these in my Commercial Portraits gallery.

Executive headshot of Leo, a manager with the Cintas company. The medium-gray background works well with almost any clothing choice and any skin tone.

Headshots for real-estate professionals. The solid black background behind Sally makes for a dramatic contrast with her white jacket, and gives a lot of versatility for her to use the image on business cards and marketing materials.

Executive headshot: no tie required. George is the CEO of a land development company and wanted a less formal look to reflect the way he dresses most of the time, and to make him look relaxed and approachable.

BUSINESS and PERSONAL BRANDING PORTRAITS

These are for businesses and individuals who want something a bit less traditional than the typical head-and-shoulders headshot. They're usually 3/4-length, or even full-length, and let you express more of your personality and passions, or give some hint as to the kind of work you do, or where you do it. Locations? Indoors, outdoors, or in a studio setting -- we can do these anywhere. There aren't really any rules -- the only limits are your imagination. 

 One of my law-firm clients decided to update their standard headshots with something a bit more modern, so I photographed this new associate in the lobby of their building.

Jessica's company had me in for a headshot session, but also wanted a few photos with a more relaxed vibe, so I did some wider shots of each employee. The hand on her hip and the tilt of her head give this corporate portrait a friendly, casual feel.

 Donna is a real-estate professional, but after we did some headshots, she let me create this image, which would work well for social media -- or a modeling portfolio.
