Let’s face it, the corporate headshot is more than just a photo; it is part of the identity that you've created for yourself, your business and your brand.

It needs to say all the things you want it to say about you — friendly, professional, 

approachable and trustworthy.

‘People buy people’ It’s a fact – we all prefer to deal with people we can relate to. It makes sense to have business portraits that let your personality shine through.

Business portraits or headshots can be used for numerous purposes:

on your business website, facebook page,

A selfie just doesn't cut it! So I've put together some tips & ideas on how to get the best headshot for you. 

 

What to wear?:

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

Ideally wear something that you would wear when meeting clients

It doesn't have to be a suit and tie, but it should reflect you and your style of business.

Choose something that falls well and flatters your neckline.

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)

Clothes should be neatly pressed or even treat yourself to something new!

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

What colours photograph best?

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

Be careful - white can "wash you out" (unless it's a shirt under a jacket).

Darker shades are more flattering and slimming, however black isn't always the best colour,

Black can look like a solid flat mass -  navy, dark grey work well. 

Wear colours than emphasise your eyes!

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

If you usually wear glasses, wear them in the photos. If you switch between contacts and 

glasses have both styles taken.

Keeping things simple with a plain background, ensures that the focus is on you.

The primary focus for a professional business headshot should be the face and 

more specifically the eyes, as they are the windows to the soul.

FAQ's

How often should I update my photos?

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

then it's a good idea to update your profile picture. 

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 has dated, you should update. 

A suit and tie can appear timeless, if chosen carefully, however we all change over time 

so I would recommend and update every couple of years as a minimum.

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, brighten eyes and 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......I don't do the botox look. :) 

 

I have tried and tested techniques in lighting, posing and editing to ensure you are shown at your very best.
