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.

Corporate Portraits in Houston

Do you need a new or an updated professional business portrait? Below are a few key elements that help create a Professional Business Portrait.

1. Professional lighting – Your photographer needs to have a solid knowledge of how to use professional lighting equipment and needs to know when to add or subtract light quickly and effectively. This is crucial since lighting can add or subtract weight in a subject’s face.

2. Posing – Your photographer should guide you through your session and make subtle movements to your poses or body position. Certain poses can help with sliming the subject’s body, as well as the face.

3. Expression – A professional photographer must be able to verbally create a desired expression in a short window of time. Your image should reflect approachability, and confidence.

4. Lens selection – Correct lens selection is a critical element to a business portrait session. Selecting the incorrect lens could add weight to a subject or compress an image to where it is unpleasing to the eye.

5. Attire – We recommend professional attire specific for your industry. A good rule of thumb is to wear what you would to an important sales meeting or an interview. Still need help with this? We can assist with clothing selection should you opt to bring in a few clothing options for your session.

6. Digital Retouching – This option is not meant to correct bad photography or poor lighting. Retouching a tool used to remove blemishes, stray hairs, whiten teeth or smooth facial lines. The digital retouching on your final image should be subtle and the image should still look like you.
