Document your new recognition with a Head Shot!

Just received an award or a significant recognition from a trade association?  You should document your new status with a head shot and post to your websites and blogs to gain the most attention.

St Louis Head Shots Document Your Accolades
St Louis Head Shots Document Your Accolades

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.

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.

How to select a Headshot Photographer.

Look for variety! This is the single most important consideration. Your headshot must be unique to you. There’s nothing more disheartening than going to an audition with your brand new headshot, only to see ten other actors with the very same shot! Make sure the photographer you choose features a variety of angles, backgrounds, compositions, poses and expressions on their website. When looking through a photographer’s portfolio, you want each image to surprise you.

Feel comfortable with the photographer. Usually you can get a good idea of their energy through the website, but pick up the phone and give them a call as well. If you feel it’s important, sit down with them for a consultation. If you leave a headshot session wanting to hang out with your photographer, you’ve had a terrific shoot.

Make the investment in professional headshots. If you want to be taken seriously by the industry, the quality of your headshot must project professionalism. If you’re too thrifty, you’ll probably be told to get new headshots once you meet an agent or casting director. If you make the investment initially, you shouldn’t have to do it again until your look changes.

Professional Tips On How To Effectively Take Better Headshot Portraits

Many people believe that photography is too difficult or too expensive a hobby for them to get involved in, but that doesn’t have to be the case. Just like anything else in life, the best way to get started is by learning.

Professional Headshots For Actors and Talent
Professional Headshots For Actors and Talent

If you want to take high quality portraits, do not rely on your camera’s built in flash. Instead you want to look at investing in a softbox to use for external lighting. If you can’t afford this, look into purchasing an external flash unit with a diffuser for your camera.

When photographing headshots, isolate your subject. Use a medium telephoto lens or the medium telephoto setting on your zoom. That, combined with a large aperture, blurs the foreground and background. Focus on the eyes. Use diffused lighting for a flattering look. If outdoors, wait for an overcast sky or shoot with the subject in the shadows and the sun at your back.

Experiment with the focus on your camera to create interesting pictures. You can focus on your subject more by using a smaller depth-of-field to blur the background. This is a good technique to use when the subject is up close, such as in portraits. You can get a greater depth-of-field using a larger f-stop so that everything can be shot in focus. This can improve the scope and definition in landscape shots.

The memories of our life are precious, and it is important to capture them in headshots. Whether you want to try capturing yourself or call upon our professional firm, you will have a better understanding of the imaging basics.

Getting a great professional portrait or headshot is very important for your business and your professional image.

It’s how prospective clients will identify you and decide,

sometimes without a meeting, that they want to work with you.

Having a current clean image that clearly represents your best will speak volumes

about you and your business.

The Interview Look

One of the most common questions we get before our shoots is, “What do I wear?”  There really aren’t any defined rules here.  It’s best to avoid super busy patterns because they can play tricks with the camera.  Solid, bold colors are always a great choice.  Unless you’re in a studio with big lights, heavy powder make-up isn’t generally necessary.  If you are standing for your interview, try to keep your feet planted.  I say that, but you also want to feel natural.  If you talk with your hands and tend to gesture, you should feel free to do so during your interview.  In fact, we’re always looking for opportunities for you to show us what you’re speaking about.  If you’re sitting for your interview, try not to swivel in your chair.  The viewers will often only see your head and shoulders, so swiveling can look awkward.  Despite the lights, camera and all the action, take a deep breath and just be yourself.
