Business Headshots and Business Portraits

A good photograph is like a good wine, they both age well.

Make The First Impression Count

What’s all the fuss about business headshots?

Dubbed the ‘new handshake’, professional headshots are now the first introduction to you, your business and your personal brand. Shouldn’t that intro be the best it can be?

With so many people looking to find you on LinkedIn, facebook, Twitter and your website that headshot has countless applications in your professional life (and personal too!).

Your website and corporate literature can say a lot about you and help people to get a better understanding of the type of work you do and how you approach your business.

Should your profile picture be the family vacation, the fun night out or – worse still – your logo or an abstract shot? Or should it be a powerful, compelling and confidence-building headshot that makes propective clients, employers and partners want to click ‘Connect’?

How long is the photography session?

The shoot itself may take up to one or two hours, depending on your requirements in terms of multiple locations/setups/clothes changes etc. It is worth considering a range of styles and clothing during the shoot as this will give you a greater choice of images afterwards and then a selection of images for you to keep in your bank for use at a later stage. You may have different requirements for your images, from profile shots on a website, to speaker notes at a conference or press shots for a recent news piece.

What can I expect after the shoot?

After the shoot, proofs are posted online for you to view and select from. Alternatively, you may view them in our viewing suite at the studio where we can zoom in, compare images, show you different styles, crops etc. to ensure the images meet your expectations.
