Houston Professional Business Portraits

Houston professional business portraits by Michael Carr Photography, is available for in studio or location portraits to Houston area professionals. A polished business image is a valuable tool in marketing your visual brand and could be used in a variety of social media platforms, annual reports, and business proposals. Business leaders know the importance of self-promotion and branding. In today’s market, it is common to have a business casual portrait or a ¾ portrait on file as well as a current professional business headshot. The sessions are similar but differ in attire and expressions captured during the session. Many business leaders are rotating their business portraits every 1 to 2 years. These top executives and business leaders are common clients for us and they require updated business images as part of their business portfolio. With today’s digital marketing, maintaining a competitive edge is a crucial. One of the worst things you could do is to never update your business portrait. An up to date business portrait shows your clients that you care about your professional image, which in turn builds their trust in your professional services.

Take the time to look at your business portrait you are currently using, and evaluate it: Does it still look like you? Has your hair style changed? Does it convey your message to your target audience? If your business headshot is over 5 years or does not represent you well, you must consider updating your profile image. Invest in yourself and your marketing.

Houston Marketing Business Portrait

Houston marketing business portrait photographer, Michael Carr, recently photographed Terry for his new business website and his new national marketing campaign. On the day of his session, our client brought in a concept layout provided by his web designer for Michael to use as inspiration for the client’s business portrait. The graphic design director wanted the photographer to be able to visualize the direction the client’s new website campaign. After a brief portrait consultation before the session, we agreed on casual business attire combined with an interactive welcoming expression for his portrait. The format for the client’s new marketing collateral and website imagery design lead this final image to be a horizontal headshot portrait on a solid white background. After a few quick previews we all knew we had the portrait image Terry and team had envisioned. The art director loved this image. This new headshot image for this client’s website and marketing campaign is helping to propel his business on a national level.

Tips for Your Business Portrait

Below are a few helpful tips to prepare for your business portrait session and executive business headshot:
1) Clothing tips for your business portrait:
What to wear? Does your clothing fit properly and do feel confident? Try on your outfit or suit at home first. We always recommend solid colors and neutral tones and classic clothing lines. You do not want someone to look at your portrait, and be able to date it based on your clothing and clothing style (shoulder pads and big hair screams 80’s fashion). You want your viewers to notice your face and expression first, then clothing. Do not let your clothing overpower your business portrait. Men should select a tie that is classic and not too busy of a pattern or color. Your tie and suit choice should be a recent suit and properly fitted. If you do not wear a suit often, then it would be a good idea to try it on well before your session to make sure it fits correctly. Men- if your suit is a bit snug, or you cannot button your jacket or collar of your shirt then it is time to invest in new clothing. Clothes that are too tight or that do not fit you properly will photograph poorly and you will not be comfortable during your session. You can view more clothing tips here.
2) Make up and Hair:
We recommend you either contacting our partner salon for make up and hair, or going to a salon you have used in the past and feel comfortable with. Makeup should be the correct tone, shade and intensity: not too dark and not too light. A fresh blow out will do wonders, and you will be ready for a fun night out after your session.
3) It’s Session Day:
First, relax and breathe. We will help you feel relaxed and comfortable for your headshot session. We will walk you through and talk with you to help provoke the expression you are wanting for your portrait. When your session is over, we will also help you select your final images.
