Classic Headshot

Why a headshot? Well, we know that people connect with faces. And more specifically...they connect with your eyes. A headshot yields you the fastest connection with your target market - which is why it is the most important photograph your business will invest in.

Character Photograph

A character photograph is a great companion to your headshot. They usually work nicely on a bio page and can work as an alternative social media profile photo. Character photos are usually taken as a full length, 3/4 or 1/2 length to utilize your natural body language to tell the viewer a bit more about you. 

Story-telling Portrait

These style of portraits are great for branding your company. They are photographs that tell a story about what you do, and what makes you different. These photographs require more planning than a headshot and ultimately more time, as they are usually created on location. Please be sure to budget a bit more if you have your heart set on a story-telling photograph.

FAQ

Do I really need a professional business portrait?

If you are trying to convey to your client that you are professional – then the answer is yes. A selfie or amateur photograph can unintentionally signal to your client that your business is unprofessional and/or unreliable. In the digital age – everyone is researching your company and making judgments on your business before they pick up the phone. Remember you only have one chance to make a first impression!

How often do I need a new portrait?

We recommend every 3 to 5 years. It is important that you look like your business portrait – otherwise, you give your potential clients reason to second-guess you. New glasses, different hair and getting better looking are the most common reasons to have your portrait updated!

What kind of portrait do I need?

A professional headshot is the number photograph you need to have in your PR kit. We suggest this photograph first, and if the budget allows, then we can discuss the other photographs that make the most sense for your business.

 

How many photos do I need?

It really depends on the type of business you’re in.Many of our self-employed clients will come in for a combo of a headshot and either a character or story-telling image. Our  CEO’s, Founder’s and Executives will often leave with two different expressions; an “internal” photograph (for use with staff or happy news) and an external photograph that has a more neutral expression (better for press releases etc.).

If you are working with a smaller budget – we recommend that everyone have a professional headshot. The character and story-telling photos can be more interesting – but they are meant to accompany the classic headshot – not replace it.
