What should a headshot look like?
First, let me say that there are no set standards for headshots. It’s not like a passport photo where the head should take up X percentage of the frame and the eyes should be one-third of the way down the image, etc. Headshots come in all shapes and sizes and colors and exposures, just like us! And that’s a beautiful thing. However, there are a few things to keep in mind when you are preparing for a headshot session. First, find a professional photographer. A certified professional photographer will have the proven technical skills and abilities to provide what you need in a headshot. Next, talk to your photographer about location, background, wardrobe, and styling. Finally, keep in mind that a typical headshot will be about from the chest and up. Cropping the image is also best left to a professional.
Sometimes I have clients that know exactly what their headshot needs to look like. Usually it’s because the company has a current set of headshots for their staff and the newest person has to create a headshot that matches. So we create a headshot with similar background and lighting and the headshot blends beautifully with the current employees’ photos. Many times, clients do not have any restrictions or guidelines and we can create something that matches their personality and style and brand. For small business owners, matching your brand is important and helps to solidify the statement that you’re making with your headshot. It’s a good idea to talk to your photographer about all of these things in preparation for your headshot session.
