St Louis Headshots | Effective Photography Tip

Many people seek high quality headshots each year because of the many ways that they can be used in both personal and professional areas of their lives. Headshots are used by business and talent professionals, including executives, actors, actresses, models, and many others who work in professional careers. While corporate headshots are popular, those for the regular population are also becoming more so. Many people are getting professional headshots to use on their social media sites, dating sites, blogs, and other such online mediums.

To dress for a slimming effect, remember: darker colors are slimming; light colors are not.  Solid colors are slimming; bold patterns are not.  A single color from head to toe (i.e. a suit) is slimming.  Vertical lines are slimming; horizontal lines are not. This can apply to pleats as well as prints.  The v-neck shape is slimming. This is achieved by the cut of a sport coat, or the v-neck opening in a shirt or sweater.  Single-breasted jackets are more slimming than double-breasted.  If you’ll be standing for a full-length portrait, high heels are slimming—as are clothes that are well tailored rather than too loose or too tight.

St Louis Headshot Photographer

Often we shoot hundreds of headshots for special live corporate events in Saint Louis.  Corporate event photography work demands the expertise and experience as any other assignment, particularly when you have multiple photographers covering simultaneous events over several days. I feel fortunate to have several associate photographers that I can trust to provide back up or work alongside with when a team of photographers is required.

There are so many careers that can benefit from a great headshot, it would be hard to list them all. Doctors, lawyers, corporate executives, realtors, and journalists almost always require a great headshot. For models, actors, singers — any performer in fact — having a killer headshot is an absolute necessity.

There are countless other careers that can benefit too: pretty much anyone who has a public face. If your clients or customers see you, then a professional headshot will help plant your face more firmly in their mind. If you are auditioning or meeting with agencies, a superb headshot will help you stand out from the crowd. In either case, a great headshot will serve to put a real human face with your name.

Of course, it is important that the headshot is of the highest quality. Anyone can distribute a picture of themselves, but if it doesn’t convey the proper image, then it won’t be a benefit. Creating a great headshot may seem simple, but like so many things, the little details matter.

We had the opportunity to work with William H. Macy when he was in St Louis filming The Layover.  The 4:30 am crew call was not a problem when you work with such a fine cast and crew.

Headshots in Saint Louis | Multiple team members


Executive, corporate or business headshots or corporate portraits are photos made of staff members, usually head and shoulders but sometimes half-body or three-quarter-body shots, generally made for company websites, internal newsletters, trade publications, public relations, marketing and sometimes advertising. My photography is made at our studio or at your location.

For multiples and groups of headshots, I can bring my studio strobes and backdrops to your place of business. This way I can be on your employee’s schedule instead of the other way around. It is all done at your location usually in a conference room or like space. You can choose to go with a neutral backdrop like white or gray or you can use your go with a natural environment look with business or nature in the background. My commercial headshots take about 20-25 minutes for each person that is to be photographed. Set-up of the photo studio lights generally takes about an hour and tear down about half that.

Should you need video, we can make you look good for on camera presentations as well.
