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.

It needs to say all the things you want it to say about you — friendly, professional, approachable and trustworthy.

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.

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.

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.

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!

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.

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

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.
