“Elena Rose Photography did professional head shots for me and I consistently get complimented. Folks have told me that these are some of the best head shots they have ever seen, period. The session was a joy–and I’m not somebody who enjoys having their picture taken. Elena Rose was warm, creative, personable, all that good stuff, but most importantly, her work is simply the best.”   Nicole Z.

 

How can you get a business headshot that tells your clients, suppliers and peers
something important about you? 
The first thing to consider is how best to match your personality to your occupation.

Consider how the setting, the lighting, your clothing, props and your expression will contribute. When I get an inquiry about business headshots, I immediately ask, “What kind of business are you in?”   This helps us decide whether an outdoor location, a studio setting, or the workplace is most appropriate. I would photograph a judge differently than I would photograph a palm reader, for example. (And I’ve done both.) In general, if you are in a conservative occupation, a studio or workplace setting would be more appropriate than a park or urban background for your business headshot. The more personal your occupation, the greater leeway you have in choosing a site in the great outdoors.  Jewelry maker, massage practitioner, free lance writer, esthetician, physical therapist and counselor are some of the occupations that lend them themselves to a highly personal look in the business headshot.

Inborn sincerity will animate your eyes and appeal to your website visitor as fervently as any testimonial, snappy slogan or thoughtful prose.  Do what comes naturally to give an accurate impression to colleagues, peers and potential clients. You’ll love your business headshot if you look genuine, and potential clients will recognize you easily when they meet you. The last thing you want is to be unrecognizable in your headshot!  To that end, avoid extreme make-up or an experimental new haircut.

Next, let’s consider what kind of personality you have.

A business headshot that reflects the essence of who you are will attract people with whom you are compatible. For example, if you easily express emotion, and are primarily considered an outgoing person, by all means, smile engagingly in your photograph.  If you are reserved and your facial expressions are typically cool or aloof, there is no need to force a huge grin. Just think of something that makes you happy and let your facial muscles do the rest.

I strive to take a business headshot that portrays your best message within the context of your personality and occupation.  For example, a counselor might want to portray kindness; a contractor, honesty; a comedian, humor; an interior designer might want to look very contemporary. There is only one right or wrong when it comes to expression: Is it natural to YOU?

After that, think about what you to wear.  

Classic business clothing?  Business casual? Work clothes that are meant to get messy?  Jewelry, no jewelry?  Again, line up your personality with your occupation. If you are a mediator and your clients expect a certain decorum, classic business clothing is in order, but you can wear a lovely necklace, or a beautiful tie pin. If you own a construction company, less formal attire is acceptable. If you are a professional tattoo artist, roll up the sleeves and show us your art.

Sometimes props are in order. If you are a musician, include your instrument. If you are an architect, blueprints might add muscle to the photo. If you are a DJ, bring your microphone. Unlike in the olden days, headshots don’t have to look like passport photos or something out of the DMV. Business headshots can be framed generously to include an ‘occupation-prop.’

There are people with eccentric sides to their personalities in every line of work, and if unconventional behavior is a signature that works for you, then embrace it.

For example, I once photographed a banker who had a small scar on his cheek. When I offered to retouch his business headshot, he refused, then told me he was proud of how he had obtained it. It turned out that after work hours, he was a martial arts expert and had acquired this little souvenir during a tournament. He liked his wild side and made it work for him even though his profession is considered to be conservative.

I once photographed two partners in a plumbing business. They always made it a point to wear business suits in the office as well as when they gave estimates. This is how they dressed for their business headshots because that is how they would appear when they met potential clients. They said their work clothes were for work, not for prospecting.

I once photographed a professional poker player who made a point to look expression-less in every single photo! I took a dozen shots and the only thing that changed was the slant of his shoulders.  In his occupation, it was in his best interest to look unreadable so we went with deadpan.

No matter your profession, job or occupation, I can create a business headshot that works for YOU.  Check out my excellent value headshot packages, for individuals, small companies, medium sized businesses or large corporations.  I have something that’s right for you.
