Creating a good first impression with a professional headshot
Professional portrait images of your staff can be taken in your business premises with minimal fuss and equipment. ‘Meet the team’ pages on corporate websites are becoming more and more common, featuring staff photographs and bios. This gives your company a personality, and an opportunity for the visitor to see who they’re speaking to. Staff portraits can also be used in corporate brochures, press releases and on social media sites.
Many of our clients use their head and shoulder photographs for their LinkedIn profile photos which creates a smart, professional first impression. It is unfortunately still fairly common to see poor quality photos used on LinkedIn profiles – cropped family photos, photos taken in a bar on a night out, and poor resolution, are all popular. This is not good for business and makes you look unprofessional. You can spend hours perfecting the content on your LinkedIn profile, but the first thing potential clients see is your profile photo. People buy people, so it’s important to make a good first impression.
There are many styles to choose from and I will work with you to select the style of photography and background which best fits your brand. I can either shoot on location or set up a mobile studio for you.
The corporate photography service includes:
- Professionally lit, composed and edited pictures
- Profile pictures for use on Social Media such as LinkedIn, with unlimited use
- Choice of style, backgrounds to suit your brand identity
- Location based pictures for a more unique corporate image
- High quality conversions to black and white or true sepia
I can also photograph roundtable business meetings for use in magazines and brochures. These can be discreetly and creatively shot, with minimal disruption.
There are a number of styles you can choose from, and this is something we can discuss together and plan. Options include a traditional, formal head and shoulders portrait; a more relaxed, photo in your office environment; or, you may wish to have a more natural photo, looking off camera. A selection of different styles can be viewed in the gallery above. Photographs can be taken inside or outside, and I will bring the appropriate lighting with me to ensure the photographs are professionally lit.
