Women’s Casual Editorial Portrait Photographer

Women’s Casual Editorial Portrait Photographer, Michael Carr, offers business lifestyle Portraits for Houston area professionals. Featured here is a recent session with Beth Moore of Living Proof Ministries. Beth is a well-known religious speaker and the founder of Living Proof Ministries; which is a Bible-based organization for women based in Houston, Texas.

For her PR portraits, we felt a women’s casual editorial Portrait in Houston would work well with her marketing campaigns. Lifestyle or editorial portraits are commonly used in periodicals, magazines and marketing campaigns where a more casual image is required. Environmental portrait sessions can be tailored to your profession and can communicate your personality in a different method than a traditional business portrait would. Scouting, planning, storyboarding and pre-lighting the session made for a smooth and successful assignment. We also consulted with her before the session so proper clothing was pre-selected and prepared before her session. Casual business portrait sessions are available on location or in our studio. We have a relationship with a nearby salon that provides makeup and hair, should you also need those services. To view more of our women’s casual business portraits, please visit this link.

Social Media Headshots

Social media technology plays a major role in today’s business world. Breaking news is tweeted or hash tagged in seconds with new information being released instantaneously.  Corporation V cards are used daily in the business world around the globe as a daily form of business introductions.  Corporate directories and annual reports are filled with business portraits showcasing corporate leadership.  A polished professional portrait adds value to your presentations, proposals, and online business biographies. Let’s face it, digital media is here to stay and has proven to be effective amongst business leaders.  For business professionals, a prime example is LinkedIn. According to LinkedIn data, a social media bio is 11x’s more likely to be clicked on and viewed when there is an image included on an individual’s profile page. There are two important factors to keep in mind for your LinkedIn social media headshot profile image.

social media headshots

1) Visual communication in business is powerful and makes a positive impact when dealing with potential clients or professional counterparts.  If you do not have a photo for your professional profile page, this can have a big impact on the overall appearance of your profile giving the impression your profile is incomplete.

2) Your social media headshot needs to be polished and professional. Casual photos that some may use on Facebook are not a good choice on LinkedIn. Keep your headshot professional.  Remember, first impressions count, and people do business with people they trust so be sure that your picture conveys the impression of the warm, professional, friendly person that you really are.

Professional Houston Headshot Photographers

Regardless of the line of work you are in, if you are promoting yourself or business services, a great headshot is a necessity. A professional headshot is a powerful tool for helping social connecting.  It is very much to your advantage to provide a headshot that people can identify with and remember you by.

A professional business headshot is more than just a great selfie taken by a friend with an I-Phone or a hobbyist type camera. If you are using your headshot in business applications, then hire a professional photographer to capture and create a professional business headshot for you. Quality image characteristics include proper business expression, coordinated business attire and body language.

There are many careers that can benefit from a polished professional headshot. Doctors, lawyers, corporate executives, realtors, oil and gas professionals, financial investors and news anchors almost always require a professional executive portrait. If your clients or customers see you online, then a professional headshot will help establish a polished presence in their mind. Of course, it is important that the headshot is of the highest quality. Anyone can post a picture of themselves on an online bio page, but if it does not convey the proper image, then it will not be beneficial in the long run.  Creating a great headshot may seem simple, but like so many things, the minor details do matter.

Here’s the burning question: how do I find a great headshot photographer?

Thanks to the internet, finding a great headshot photographer is much easier than it used to be. You should be able to find a wide assortment of professional headshot photographers just by searching for “headshots” in your favorite search engine. Be aware that due to the recent improvements and availability of inexpensive digital photography equipment, there are a lot more people offering photography services at different skill levels. Take your time and do your research! There are many sites you can find that will list headshot photographers in your area, but the most important thing is to find a quality portfolio that matches your needs.  Look at a variety of headshot portfolios until you’re satisfied. Also, ask other business associates or professionals for a referral and then look at that photographer’s online portfolio. After you have narrowed down to a few photographers to consider, the next step would be to contact the studio either by phone and see who is a good match for you.
