Outdoor, natural light headshots are ideal for a brand that emphasizes fresh thinking, healthy lifestlyes, and approachability.
At some point, at headshot becomes a Portrait.
We’re after imagery that explains your business - what you do, what it’s like to work with you, and who your clients are. For website and other online content, we need to frame images for banners, sliders and bio photos.
Some roles come complete with their own wardrobe, tools etc - but not all chef’s for instance, are carbon copies of each other. So, put on the uniform and make a statement!
A bright background, some punchy colors and a bit of mischief make a great combo for entrepreneurs and businesses that feature energy and creativity.
A white or off white background is a good all purpose choice for professionals whose business features technical expertise, or for larger businesses where people with differing roles need to maintain a consistent look. Also a safe bet for those who need to submit bios for public speaking, conferences etc, and a good way to stay traditional while still maintaining an approachable brand.
Dark and “old masters” style backgrounds work with mid-toned or more formal wardrobe to emphasize reliability, tradition and trust - but hey, you can still smile :)
