Business | Corporate Portraits
Unlike our studio style headshot photography our corporate & business portraiture is photographed as a personal photo session and can be taken individually or in groups.
Our client Maurizio required some headshots & portraits for your portfolio and wished for some images that he could use with their public relations. Rather than have headshot images taken against a standard white background he wished for more approachable informal images taken in a business street environment.
Following a consultation we can decide to photograph the images on-location depends on your request.
What is a headshot Photoshoot for Businesses?
A professional headshot typically means a portrait of a person showing their head and shoulders, most often for busienss ‘about us’ pages or for social media profiles. Sometimes called a ‘head and shoulders’ portrait or a ‘profile portraits’.
A headshot photoshoot for businesses is a photo session that is specifically designed to create professional, high-quality images of an individual or a group of individuals for use in business contexts such as websites, social media profiles, marketing materials, and more. The goal of a headshot photoshoot is to create a polished, professional image that represents the individual or company in the best possible light. This may include posing, lighting, and editing to create a flattering, natural-looking image.
Headshot sessions are typically done in a studio setting or on location, and are often conducted by a professional photographer who has experience in creating headshots for businesses and other organizations.
Clients sometimes ask for a 3/4 length portrait or even full length. This is something to discuss on first organizing the meeting.
What to wear for headshot photoshoot?
When planning what to wear for a headshot photoshoot, there are a few things to keep in mind to ensure that you look your best and that your outfit is appropriate for the occasion:
Dress professionally: Choose an outfit that is appropriate for the business or professional context in which your headshot will be used. This typically means wearing business attire such as a suit, blazer, or dress. Avoid clothing with bold patterns or logos, as these can be distracting.
Color Coordination: Choose colors that complement your skin tone and hair color. Neutral colors such as black, gray, navy, and beige are always a safe bet, but you can also incorporate a pop of color with a tie, blouse, or scarf.
Pick the right fit: Clothes that fit well and are not too tight or too baggy can help you look polished and professional. Avoid clothes that are too tight, as they can be unflattering and uncomfortable.
Avoid busy patterns: Solid colors are generally the best choice for headshots, as they are less distracting than patterns. If you do choose to wear a patterned shirt or blouse, make sure that the pattern is small and subtle.
Hair and makeup: Make sure your hair and makeup are polished and professional. Avoid wearing too much makeup or having your hair too wild. A natural look is always the best choice for a headshot.
Accessories: Avoid wearing too many accessories, as they can be distracting. If you do choose to wear jewelry or accessories, keep them simple and understated.
Be comfortable: Make sure you are comfortable in your outfit, as you don’t want to be fidgeting or feeling self-conscious during the photoshoot.
Overall, the most important thing is to wear something that makes you feel confident and represents you in the best way possible. And is also important to have a good communication with your Prague photographer, if you have any doubts or questions, this will help you to be more comfortable and relaxed during the photoshoot.
