Capture the Perfect Team Headshots – At Your Office Location or In Our Studio!

We all need a good headshot for one reason or another. Whether you’re looking for a corporate headshot for your business website, a professional photo for your LinkedIn profile, or a headshot for a dating site, getting a perfect headshot can be challenging. But with a little preparation and the right photographer, you can capture the perfect headshot that will make you stand out!

What are Professional Headshots?

A professional headshot is a photo of a person’s head and shoulders taken in a professional setting. Professional headshots are often used for business purposes, such as websites, business cards, and social media profiles. They are also used for personal purposes, such as dating sites, portfolios, and even passport photos.

Professional headshots are not the same as “selfies” or “candid” shots. Professional headshots are taken in a studio or on-location with a professional photographer. The photographer will guide you in how to pose, what clothing to wear, and even what to do with your hair and makeup.

Benefits of Professional Headshots

Professional headshots have many benefits for both personal and business use. Professionally taken headshots can make you look more professional, polished, and confident. They can also be used to project a certain image or persona, such as a business executive or a social media influencer.

For businesses, professional headshots can be used to build trust with customers. They can also be used to create a cohesive look across a company website or social media accounts. Professional headshots are also great for press releases and speaking engagements, allowing people to easily recognize you in a crowd.

Tips for Taking Professional Headshots

When it comes to taking professional headshots, preparation is key. Before your session, make sure to practice your poses in front of a mirror. This will help you get comfortable in front of the camera and also give you an idea of what you’re going for.

Another important tip is to choose the right clothing. Choose something that fits well and is appropriate for the occasion. Avoid patterns and busy prints, as they can be distracting. If you’re taking a headshot for business, opt for a solid color or a muted pattern.

Finally, make sure to get plenty of rest the night before your session. This will help you look your best and feel more confident in front of the camera.

Choosing the Right Photographer for Your Professional Headshots

Choosing the right photographer is essential for getting the perfect headshot. When looking for a photographer, make sure to check out their portfolio to get an idea of their style and experience. You should also ask about their process, pricing, and turnaround time.

Another important factor is lighting. Professional headshots are typically taken with studio lighting or natural light. Make sure to ask your photographer which they prefer and how they will set up the lights.

Finally, make sure to speak with the photographer before your session. This will help you get comfortable with them and also give you an opportunity to discuss your vision for the headshots.

On-Location vs. Studio Headshots

When it comes to professional headshots, you have two main options: on-location or studio. On-location headshots are typically taken outdoors or at a specific location of your choosing. This is a great option if you want to capture a certain atmosphere or background.

Studio headshots are typically taken in a controlled environment. This can be a photography studio or even your office. Studio headshots are great for businesses that want a consistent look across their website or social media platforms.

What to Wear for Professional Headshots

When it comes to what to wear for professional headshots, the key is to keep it simple. Choose solid colors or muted patterns and avoid busy prints. Make sure the clothing fits well and is appropriate for the occasion.

Also, make sure to avoid overly trendy styles or clothing that is too revealing. Your clothing should be professional and timeless. If you’re not sure what to wear, it’s always a good idea to bring a few different options to your session.

Post-Production Tips to Enhance Your Professional Headshots

Once you’ve taken your professional headshots, the next step is post-production. This is the process of editing your photos to make them look their best.

The most important post-production tip is to keep the edits minimal. You don’t want to make your photos look unnatural or over-processed. Instead, focus on subtle adjustments to enhance the photo. This can include removing blemishes, smoothing out skin, and adjusting the lighting.

Another important post-production tip is to use the right tools. Make sure you’re using a professional photo editing software, such as Adobe Photoshop or Lightroom. This will give you more control over the edits and ensure that your photos look their absolute best.

Examples of Professional Headshots

Now that you know how to take the perfect headshot, let’s take a look at some examples. Here are a few examples of professional headshots that will make you look your best.

This corporate headshot features a young professional smiling in front of a white backdrop. The clean, simple background helps draw attention to the subject. The subject is wearing a navy blue blazer and a white collared shirt, which gives a polished, professional look.

This professional photo features a stylish businesswoman in a bright, colorful blouse. The background is a textured wall, which adds interest and depth to the photo. The woman’s hair is perfectly styled and her makeup is subtle but stunning.

Finally, this headshot features a smiling man in a classic pinstripe suit. The suit is timeless and sophisticated, and his posture is confident and relaxed. The background is a bright, airy office, which adds a sense of professionalism and sophistication to the photo.

How to Find the Perfect Professional Headshots

Finding the perfect professional headshots can be challenging, but it doesn’t have to be. The key is to find a photographer who understands your vision and can help you capture the perfect headshot.

When looking for a photographer, make sure to check out their portfolio. Ask about their process, pricing, and turnaround time. You should also make sure to speak with the photographer before your session, as this will help you build a rapport and get comfortable in front of the camera.

Finally, make sure to prepare for your session. Practice your poses in front of a mirror and choose the right clothing. Get plenty of rest the night before your session and make sure to bring a few options in case you decide to switch up your look.

Conclusion

Professional headshots are essential for both personal and business use. But getting the perfect headshot can be challenging. With a little preparation and the right photographer, you can capture the perfect headshot that will make you stand out!

Remember, preparation is key. Practice your poses in front of a mirror, choose the right clothing, and get plenty of rest the night before your session. Make sure to choose the right photographer and ask about their process, pricing, and turnaround time. And don’t forget to speak with the photographer before your session.

At the end of the day, the key to getting the perfect headshot is to be prepared and to find the right photographer. With the right photographer, you can get the perfect professional headshots that will make you look your best!

St Louis Photographers – AB InBev Jim Beam Ad – Location Scouting

Our location scouts collaborate closely with our producers, directors, and production designers to balance the ideal aesthetic choices for each location, with real world production logistics.

We believe a production’s physical location on screen influences a viewer’s reaction to the creative production in a multitude of ways, some subtle, others not so subtle. That’s why we work closely with the client to determine the perfect location for each scene, be it a real location or a set we create for a studio shoot.

Armed with extensive location databases and years of production experience, our location scouts seek sites that are practical for accessibility, electricity, noise levels, and other criteria. They present the client with photos, videos, and other pertinent information for the best location selections.

Professional Quality Photography Tip
Sense of Scale

Some products may not be easily recognizable by viewers. This is where giving a sense of scale can be very helpful. If you include an item in the image that people are familiar with, it can really help to visualize the size of the product. For example, if the product is a miniature doll, you could place an object like a standard sized pencil next to it, and give people a sense of scale.

St Louis Photographers | Visuals for Training Employees with photography and video

What a beautiful view of the arch from our recent photography and video shoot in downtown Saint Louis. We created a video and photography training manual for the courts building washing team. Highly specialized and technical instructions for employees and future new hires to learn step by step the proper methods. We shot for a full day from early morning to sunset. The most difficult part of the day was all the gorgeous shots we kept seeing and had to limit to the day at hand. But the team of two adhered to the schedule and completed the project on time and on budget for the Colorado producers of the training media.
