Business Head Shot for a Real Estate Agent

I had the pleasure of working with and creating a professional head shot for a new real estate agent recently. Leigh Ann is transitioning into her new career as a residential real estate agent in the Raleigh area and had just recently passed the real estate exam. She was super excited about her new career and wanted to make a great impression with potential clients with a professional image on her business card and the website. We worked with her to choose the right background and outfit that would work well with the company business card color scheme and other places it would be used. I love working with real estate agents and being a small part of helping get their new careers off on the right foot!

New look for a corporate client

Some nice images here that we created for client recently. This client needed a modern executive look, so we dropped in a digital background to give his images a nice crisp modern, corporate office look. This has been extremely popular lately with a lot of our clients, so we’ve made it an add on option to our normal business head shot offerings. Call us for more details if you like what you see and want something a little different! (919) 850-0492.

Business portraits with a fashion flare

We had a gorgeous young lady come in recently who needed some professional business images and wanted the images with a little bit of a fashion look & feel to them, so what did we do? We broke out the large beauty dish (light modifier), changed to a fashion style lighting pattern, put up a nice high key background that was perfect for the occasion and outfit she had, threw in a flattering pose that worked well for the look she wanted, and there you have it – a gorgeous professional image with hint of fashion! (ok, well it’s not quite that simple) The client was super thrilled with the results. I love a creative challenge and being able to deliver exactly what a client wants when they have something specific in mind. It’s not the camera or the toys, it’s knowing how and when to use them. Love what I do!

When is a good time to update your professional image?

Today I was photographing professional business head shots for a sales professional that works for a large company here in Raleigh. As we were discussing clothing options and the right expression for his image, he said he was already planning to come back in 6 months for an updated image. I was flattered but wasn’t sure why, so as we talked more he mentioned that he was planning to lose 40 lbs and get an updated image at that point.

Makes perfect sense. Any time you have a major change in appearance, you should consider updating your professional image that you use on on social media profiles such as LinkedIn as well as your business cards, website etc. Why? Good question, glad you asked. Regardless of whether you’re in a job search scenario, own your own business, or represent a company, chances are potential clients or employers will do a little research on you before deciding to do business with you or your company, or before deciding to interview you. What will they see? There is a very high probability they will see one or more of your social media profile images. So, what message will yours convey? What first impression will your image make for you? One sure way to create a bad first impression is to have a poor quality image or one that doesn’t represent how you currently look. Regarding the latter, when potential employers or clients meet you in person, and you don’t look like the image that represents you online, there is an immediate trust barrier that goes up, because in their mind, you misrepresented yourself. So if you’ve lost weight, had a significant hair style change, or any other changes affecting your appearance, you might want to consider updating you professional image.

Corporate Head Shot

A recent studio shoot for a good friend and CEO at Apogee Social Media Group. http://www.apogeesocialmediagroup.com/

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. Corporate head Shot

 

Classic head shots with a modern, contemporary look

An image we created recently for a high level executive that was looking for a slightly more modern, contemporary look. It was a fun shoot using a green screen and a little Photoshop work for the background, and I think it’s safe to say, we nailed it! Client was more than happy with the results. Love helping create a finished product that meets our clients vision.

CharlesDickensPhotography-1000What a pleasure it was working with Patricia on creating her professional business portrait. She’s a high level executive working on polishing up her personal brand online and knew that a professional business portrait was a key piece of the overall professional branding strategy.

Professional Business Portraits / Headshots

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.
