A corporate headshot is more than just a photo and the good news is...... 

it doesn't have to be like a passport photo! 

It should reflect the identity that you've created for yourself, your business and your brand.

Here are some tips & ideas on how to get the best head shot for you, but remember there are no hard and fast rules

FAQ's

What should I wear?

Wear clothes that are comfortable and that make you look and feel great.

CEO Portfolio Head ShotsCEO HeadshotsMedia Portfolio Headshots

Ideally, you should wear something that you would wear when you are meeting clients

Headshots for self employed

It doesn't have to be a suit and tie, what you wear should reflect you and your business style. 

Corporate headshots Surrey Corporate headshotsReading, Farnborough, Staines, Basingstoke and beyond

You are representing your brand values, you are the face of the business

Business Portraits for small businesses

Choose something that falls well and flatters your neckline.

Business Portraits for Twitter If you choose to wear a suit make sure your jacket and shirt fit you well 

(too big or too small will show in the photos) Professional Business Portraits Hampshire, Surrey, Berkshire Professional Business Portraits

Clothes should always be neatly pressed. You could even treat yourself to something new!

Long sleeved shirts/blouses are best, even for the head and shoulders shots.

Headshots in Hampshire

What colours photograph best?

Solid colours can work really well and most people look good in mid-tones (green, blue and brown) 

White can "wash you out" and black can look like a solid mass (rather than slimming you down).

Wear colours that emphasise your eyes! 

CEO Head Shots SurreyCEO Headshots Surrey

Blue/green/turquoise shirts/blouses or accents can help emphasise blue/green/hazel eyes

If you usually wear glasses, wear them in the shots.

If you switch between contacts and glasses have both styles taken.

 

 

 

By keeping things simple with a plain background, it ensures that the focus is on you.

Social Media Photos

The primary focus for a professional business headshot should be the face; specifically the eyes, as they are the windows to your soul.

Head shots for social media

Tight crops or unusual angle can make your shot stand out from the crowd.

Media Head Shots Media headshots

Do you photoshop the images?

Yes, I use photoshop. Digital files on professional cameras have an amazing amount of detail!!

 I use editing techniques to even out skin tone, remove spots, brighten eyes and occasionally reduce the appearance of wrinkles and laughter lines, (although these are part of your character, they make you - YOU) so I don't remove them completely.

When should I update my photos?

If you have a drastic change of hairstyle or weight-loss or you have started wearing glasses

If you have a team of employees with images on your website, then obviously you need to update them as and when people leave or join the team.

If the clothing you are wearing in your shot looks dated.

Boudoir Photography - FOR WHO? WHY?  

Boudoir Photography in Hampshire

This style of shoot isn't limited to the under 30's or those with a size 10 figure.

There are some truly stunning "older women" out there.

Beauty doesn't have a time limit and improving with age isn't restricted to wine and men!

It's a shoot for YOU, it may be a gift for your husband/partner or a gift from your husband/partner...

but it is all about you!

Sexy photos in Surrey I will arrange for a hair and makeup artist for you, so you look and feel your best.

Then I'll direct & pose you to emphasise your best bits.  

Lingerie photo shoots

 I'll capture you in the best light.

If a photo shoot like this scares the hell out of you....That's fine.

Perhaps it's time to push your boundaries, do something that scares you.

Live, Love and Laugh - live life to the full, love yourself and laugh in the face of fear.

Sexy photo shoots

April 16, 2017  •  Leave a Comment

We all have varying levels of comfort and confidence and prudishness. Some ladies are happy to go topless on the beach, others will walk around the gym changing rooms naked without a care in the world, some will remain fully covered at all times. 

Boudoir Photography HampshireBoudoir Photography Hampshire

You may look at boudoir images and say "NEVER - not for me" If this is you, please read on....

There are boudoir levels for everyone, there are some that you will feel comfortable with.

The implied nude (strapless bra or towel in place) with your modesty preserved.

 

You can shoot in your PJ's and it's still a sexy shoot 

Or your partners shirt....it can be sexy!

luxury wedding gift for groomluxury wedding gift for groom

You may be wondering why anyone would want those type of images. My clients have a number of reasons...

A wedding gift for the future husband - why not show off your wedding lingerie?...

a gift on to your husband on your wedding day of what lies beneath. 

 An anniversary gift.

Boudoir photography Surrey - celebrating you!

Celebrating a milestone (weightloss and/or birthday) 

I am always grateful when clients allow me to share their images, I want to demonstrate that a boudoir shoot is for every woman, no matter what shape or age. (Images are only ever used with the clients permission)

My boudoir shoots are confidential, personal and tailored to each client.

Some clients find themselves celebrating their new independent status

what better way to rebuild confidence than to realise "you've still got it"? 

Remember that feeling when you go out in a new outfit, or a new hair cut?  You carry yourself with a bit more confidence, you've got your swagger back; that's the time when you get a bit more attention, friends compliment you on hair, clothes etc.

That feeling of confidence is exactly what a boudoir shoot can do for YOU.

I look forward to hearing from you soon.

A professional portrait is especially important for those using LinkedIn, Facebook and twitter for networking and marketing.

Business headshots or business portraits give potential customers their first impression of you and your business; your personality and your attitude to work for prospective clients and employers.

Business portraits SurreyCreate the right first impression Research shows that just having a picture makes your profile 14 times more likely to be viewed by others.

Have you never looked at someone's profile picture and jumped to a conclusion?... because it was taken on a night out, it's holiday snap, or dodgy selfie?

A selfie on the night out is not ideal

And while we’ve all been warned to “never judge a book by its cover,” some research supports the notion that our flash judgments are often correct.

Even if you haven't judged the non professional business portrait I bet you've looked at some profile photos and thought wow, he looks professional, trustworthy, friendly etc

May Madness? - Beautiful Boudoir

May 01, 2016  •  Leave a Comment

 

Beautiful Boudoir

Last month I had the pleasure of shooting Anne -

It was a boudoir shoot for her husband of 35 years and anniversary gift.  

The images below are not Anne - all my shoots are strictly confidential.

Have you thought about having a boudoir shoot? If you have read on.....

These shoots aren't just for the under 30's or those blessed with a size 10 figure

Do you find yourself putting things off? ....Stop!! And don't save your favourite things for "best" 

Personal and confidential boudoir photosDon't save things for best

Be happy; put yourself further up your list of priorities;

Live, Love and Laugh - live life to the full, love yourself and laugh in the face of fear. 

Boudoir photography surreyLaugh in the face of fear

Push your boundaries, do something that scares you..... Take a deep breath, put your swagger on and just do it.

Boudoir photography AscotPut your swagger on

If a photo shoot like this scares the hell out of you....

If you want to feel like a million dollars - don't wait, don't postpone until you've lost 5lb. 

 

You are beautiful. 

Call me. email me. Just do it :)
