Studio head shot for a business professional we photographed recently. A great expression that fit well with his personality. Just one of the many pieces of the puzzle that come together to make a great professional portrait.

William does lots of Linked In specific training for companies and individuals and knows the importance of having a good professional image online to represent your personal or corporate brand. We were going for something a little more contemporary / modern to update his professional image, so we went with a high-key background (lighter tone), but kept with the traditional male head shot pose. This combination works well together and he was more than pleased with the look. You can never go wrong with classic posing and lighting, even when mixed with more modern or contemporary looking backgrounds or settings.
Here are a few examples of some recent business portraits we created for clients. One client is a real estate broker, one a senior manager at Cisco and one a senior sales manager. Today professionals need business portrait for various reasons, but primarily to control their personal brand online. Whether you’re representing yourself in a job search scenario or your company to potential clients, most first impressions are made online via profile photos today. Everyone has a profile photo nowadays, the questions is: what does yours say about you? Clients we work with want to make sure they create a great first impression with a polished professional image that represents them appropriately. We love coaching our clients through all the subtle nuances & details required to help create a great professional portrait for them. Our clients use their professional images in a variety of places, but primarily on LinkedIn & other social media sites, company websites, business cards and ads, so we size and output our images appropriately for the specific intended use that each client needs.
