A great portrait is a hugely important part of how we present ourselves – but it doesn’t have to be a huge ordeal. Weather it is for your social media account, your website that need to stand out, your company’s portraits, or for a job application, in the commercial climate of extreme competition, having a unique and creative headshot is essential. Your photograph will give an immediate impression of you to your customers or future business connections.
A business head shot does not take a lot of time but the more time you invest, the better the selection of your photos to choose from. For some people it is very important to get their make-up and hair done before and for others it is not that important. Depending on how you feel best, we are creating the best atmosphere to make you look the best. Business Portraits can be done in the studio. There is a selection of different backdrops. They can also be done outdoors, called environmental head shots, and they can also be done at your work place in your everyday environment. There are a lot of options depending on your needs.
When considering clothing options, texture can be terrific. Avoid baggy clothes. Avoid bright patterns. Your clothes should fit well so you don’t appear boxy. Dark colors (deep red, blue, green and black) usually work the best, but sometimes bright colors can be amazing (see some of my work). Choose colors that bring out your eyes (if you have blue eyes, look for nice grey/blue shirts as well as pure blue). Generally, keep the shirts darker than your skin tone (though white and cream tones, especially for women, can be gorgeous).
For men, layering is wonderful- a blazer and collar shirt, for example, or a t-shirt and light fall jacket. Also, thermals, crew necks and v-necks are fantastic!
For women, layering can work as well, but it’s usually a good idea to keep it simple. Sheer material is very nice, and spaghetti strap tank tops, scoop necks and v-necks are wonderful. Make sure to keep your neckline open. By the way, any of these rules can be broken to great effect. Bring whatever makes you feel attractive, even if it is contradicting everything I just wrote.
