Houston Real Estate Headshots

With a competitive real estate market and an abundance of realtors on the playing field, individual realtors need to separate themselves from the masses. Digital image and brand marketing both play a major role in today’s online presentation. From visual design and imagery to website content and visual communication, all of these topics are critical factors to consider when evaluating your online presence.

The bar has been raised from “self taken or selfie” pictures to the expectation of having a polished professional business portrait for your profile picture. The real estate market is saturated with agents so you need to ask yourself: What makes you different when there are only a few seconds of a first impression encounter?

Visual communication is critical. Marketing yourself effectively and separating yourself from others can be a quick fix. If you seek and cater to high-end clients then you must present yourself in such a manner that reflects your target market. You must evaluate your online presence and your website and insure you have a polished professional business headshot. Some higher end real estate agents not only have an in studio business portrait, but also have us go on location to one of their higher end listings and have us photograph an environmental business portrait as well. By doing this, realtors have a portfolio of options of business portraits for their marketing campaigns. The real estate market has its own unique style of branding. Create a business image or a brand that reflects your personality.

To discuss your business headshots and options for your business portraits, call the studio at 713-461-2862. We can help you formulate your plan for your headshot images to stand out from the masses. You can view our portfolio here. Our studio is conveniently located near the Galleria area, and close to 610, I-10 and 59, so there is easy access from those freeways.

Women Portraits in Houston

Houston area professionals are broadening their corporate image from traditional business headshots to casual headshots. Today’s corporate session typically consists of a traditional headshot, a casual headshot and ¾ standing portrait, with a variety of outfits pre-selected. Business leaders are requesting both portrait styles in order to connect with a larger audience. A professional business image for digital marketing is a key element when clients are searching for business services.

People conveying approachable personalities in their profile images are more likely to gain new business. The days of “selfies” and “cut outs” from family photos are a recipe for failure. If your desired audience has put forth the effort of professional portraits, your image should also reflect the same level of polished professionalism. Many executives update their executive portraits regularly and continue to come to us repeatedly for their photography needs.

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.
