Time to update your resume, social media, your website or perhaps you are part of a volunteer board and need some professional business portraits. It is critical that you have someone who knows the importance of this. Your customers want to deal with you not a company. A logo won’t do anymore, people who are looking for a professional see your photograph and know immediately that you are professional.  If you use anything but a professional head shot you are at risk of not meeting the clientele you desire.

These head shots are in magazines, bus stops, bill boards, and posters. The wrong image says I don’t care about my professionalism and this leads to the wrong impression when someone sees your photo. In this day and age, not having a head shot to help build that connection with clients and industry professionals is almost like not having a business card at a networking event. Faces help people remember, and your head shot is how you can get yourself out there.

The proper photograph of you opens a window to your future also makes you feel better about yourself. If you feel good then the rest will come naturally.This photograph was taken of Steve Gaul who is an chartered accountant at KPMG. He came to me to update his business photographs as well as needing other photos for his volunteer treasurer position at http://www.centre3.com for Artistic and Social Practice. This organization is a place for artists to create, produce and exhibit art in Hamilton, Ontario.

Updating your business portrait is important as it puts a personal touch to your business whether it be on your website, brochures or other visual media like social media. Why do you need a professional business headshot? People want to do business with people they they know, like and trust. Having a professional business head shot helps people feel like they know you before you’ve ever even met.

Everyone wants to put a name with a face. The photo below I took for this real estate couple which they use in every edition of the “Your Home & Lifestyle Magazine”. The head or shoulder shots can be done at my location or can be done at your place of business. We can incorporate your type of business into the photography whether that be real estate, medical, or what ever type of business you have!

If you’re serious about connecting with clients then a business portrait is a must. A business portrait (also called an executive portrait or professional portrait) is generally a headshot (head and shoulders portrait). It’s similar to a typical portrait except you are buying the image to use for your business rather than buying a print to sit on your mantel.

You can put your portrait on your website, blog, business cards, and even advertising to give a face to your name or business. You can also put your business portrait on your resume when applying for jobs. These portraits are also perfect for social networking sites, press releases and company brochures. Men should wear a suit jacket, sweater or even a nice dress shirt. Women however should wear a blouse, pant suit or tailored jacket. Don’t wear short sleeve shirts for your portrait. Long sleeves are much more flattering on your arms then short. Your portrait photo can be taken in front of a neutral backdrop or in an office or other work area. Some retouching is done to correct those areas that need attention such as eyeglasses and its best to not wear too much jewelry. The photographer will always advise on wardrobe and the best location for your business portrait.
