What makes a great headshot?
A successful session takes just a little bit of planning. Before meeting a client for the first time, I like to discuss a few things in preparation for the session.
- Location: do you want a studio session, environmental, or outdoor location? Take a look at some headshot examples and consider your company, role, and brand. The studio headshot can be formal or casual, traditional or modern. Environmental headshots give a sense of place and ground you in your space. Outdoor headshots are more casual and friendly.
- Wardrobe: do you want a more formal look with a suit jacket or more casual yet still professional. Talk to your photographer about options. Always stick to the general rules of solid colors, well-fitting items, and no bold statement pieces.
- Variety: consider all of the places and uses for your new headshots. Perhaps your website pages (about, products/services, contact), flyers, publications, business cards, proposals, and internal communications. Think about the different types of images that you might need. Talk to your photographer about these images so that you have a variety of poses and looks. Your photographer can vary backgrounds, lighting, posing, and location to create a portfolio of images to satisfy those needs.
In summary, plan for all aspects of the headshot session. From there, execution on the plan leads to a success and a great headshot!
Here are some recent headshot examples from my studio. Most of my headshot session are business or corporate sessions. Sometimes, the company already has a certain look and a new employee needs to have a headshot that matches that look. Other times, we can create an entirely new look for the headshots or several looks so that you have a variety of images to pull from for websites and social media. Either way, we can accomplish your goals in the headshot session.
