CONTEMPORARY BUSINESS PORTRAITS
Houston portrait photographer, Michael Carr, also offers contemporary business portraits. This look is achieved through proper clothing selection, dramatic lighting and proper natural posing. Most clients opt for a classic business portrait as well as a contemporary business portrait as an additional look to their session. You can view our background options here.
We will consult with you on your attire for your contemporary business portrait. A good rule of thumb is to stick to timeless and classic clothing that you feel confident in. We always recommend that clients bring with them several outfits to choose from. We can look at your wardrobe with you and select the best outfit for your portrait. Solid colored clothing is always best for a portrait. For men, you can add a pop of color with a tie or a pocket square. For the ladies a colored shell is an option with jewelry as an accent to the overall portrait. We have clothing tips on our site here . For 3/4 length portraits we recommend that you try on your clothes and make sure they fit properly before your session. If your clothes do not fit well, or if they are snug, it will show in your portrait. Make sure you are confident in the attire you select and that all clothing is pressed. For ladies, we have a nearby partner salon that can take care of your hair and makeup. Please inquire about this before your session.
For a contemporary business portrait, we recommend that you are photographed in a head and shoulder format as well as a waist up or seated ¾ type pose. For a contemporary business portrait, we recommend a few outfits, so you can easily change your look in the portrait, along with the pose. We will talk with you during your session to guide you through the posing. We want you to be relaxed, comfortable and look natural in your business portraits.
Proper facial analysis is key to any portrait. We can use shadows to compliment and trim up facial features. Creative lighting techniques can also add drama to your portrait and help you stand out from the competition. We prefer to have our lighting set up before you arrive for your session. Once you are on set we can make minor lighting adjustments to compliment your portrait.
At the conclusion of your business portrait session, we will review all the images captured and help you with final image selections. Our studio is centrally located in The Galleria area, 77057, and between three major Houston freeways: I-10, 610, and 59. If you would like to discuss your contemporary business portrait or book your session, please call the studio at 713-461-2862 and we can help you.
