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 portrait 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 portrait 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.

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 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 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.

Professional Social Media Headshots

In today’s market, corporate leaders are looking for ways to brand themselves differently and market their services in a different manner than their competition. Professional social media headshots can help you place a cutting edge on your services vs your competitor and ultimately determine who ends up getting the phone call. Your corporate image speaks volumes about you and your business. In a digital age where searching for services is occurring during all hours of the day, it is key to have your best professional image forward at all times.  This theory applies to not only websites, but also social media portraits for online apps such as LinkedIn, professional trade sites, and your marketing collateral kit. A headshot is not just a headshot. It is personal branding. Every industry and corporate position has a unique look and persona for their business portrait. A prime example of this is that a trial attorney would not be photographed in the same manner as a marketing representative. Technology is changing daily. When creating or updating your online presence you need to consider how your personal branding image can enhance your website and professional image. People want to connect with people who are industry professionals and viewed as someone they can trust.
