Even in the most serious business, image matters. That's why a truly professional head shot is so important. It’s also an opportunity to celebrate you! In over 10 years of photographing professionals, We've learned the needs of photographing business people: We make the uncomfortable situation of getting in front of the camera as comfortable as possible, and We don't waste your valuable time getting something great.
When preparing for the photo session make sure to pick your best business cloths as if you were going for a job interview. Wear clothes that are comfortable and that make you look great. The standard business look is a suit jacket, dress shirt and tie. A casual business look is often a jacket and open dress shirt, shirt and tie (no jacket), or dress shirt on its own. Avoid overdressing - the best look is one that looks and feels effortless. Make sure your jacket and shirt fit you well. A poor fitting jacket or shirt will be obvious in the photos.
V-necks accentuate the neckline and generally tend to look best on women - Just be careful as to not choose something with too low of a neckline. Try to avoid short sleeves or tank tops - Executive head shots look best without bare arms, unless it fits with your brand personality. Bring a choice of tops and blazers - We can mix and match to create the perfect look for you.
Professional makeup is recommended. Makeup should be clean and natural with a heavy layer of translucent powder. This will make the shine disappear, pores look smaller and the skin will look even. Avoid shimmers or any products with too much sparkle or shine. We strongly suggest you hire a professional artists to do your hair and makeup.
Don’t get a new hair cut just before the shoot - let it grow in a bit to get that natural and comfortable look.
For jewelry, go for something small and classic - not too reflective or flashy. Earrings shouldn’t dangle more than an inch or so from the earlobe - The simpler the better!
