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.

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.

5 Women’s Casual Business Portrait Tips

1. In-Studio Sessions

In-studio Portrait sessions are ideal for busy female professionals. At Michael Carr Photography, we offer a professional studio within a commercial office building. Amenities include a controlled environment, a full dressing room, wifi, and on-set viewing of your session images as they are being captured. Each Women’s Casual Business Portrait begins with a consultation to discuss your session goals, where the images will be used for marketing collateral, and what format and sizes are required for final images. At the end of your portrait session, you will review your images and make your selections. A digital artist will edit your final images in digital enhancement software to soften puffiness under the eyes, minimize smile lines and refine your portrait.

2. Attire & Accessories
For the Women’s Casual Portrait, we want the portrait to emphasize you. Blouses, skirts, dresses, and jackets should be in a solid color or have a light pattern. Feel free to bring up to 3-5 clean, well-pressed outfits to your session. If you normally wear glasses, wear them in your portrait. Lastly, when it comes to jewelry, less is best. We recommend wearing pearls or diamonds for a classic and polished look.

3. Grooming
Female professionals should have their hair and make-up done by a professional hairstylist and makeup artist the day of your session. A professional makeup artist will highlight your best features and choose the right colors to compliment your outfit for your photography session. We are happy to provide recommendations upon request. Also, consider your hands as they may show in your portrait. Some clients opt to get a manicure before their session and select a clear polish or neutral color for their nails.

4. Background Selection & Image Usage
Depending on your image specs and requirements, we will select a white, graphite or gray background that will compliment your attire. Please know in advance if your business portrait is head and shoulders or ¾ length or full-body length. Also please provide us any specific website or file specs you have for your final digital images.


5. Posing and Expression

To capture your executive presence, we recommend an expression that exudes confidence and leadership traits. Be careful with the excessive head tilting or straight on approach in your casual Business Portrait. For some, a closed mouth expression with a slight expression in the eyes works best. For others, a slight expression in the smile and eyes works better. In either case, approachability is the key. Proper body language and posing are as important as expression and clothing. As in any profession, the quality is in the details.

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.
