DO YOU NEED A PROFESSIONAL PROFILE PORTRAIT MAKE OVER?Chances are you do and you may not even know it. 

  • When was our last professional business portrait taken?
  • Does it communicate how you look and what you do?
  • Is it consistent with the companies branding?

Do you look good in it and have great posture, approachable look, and portray professionalism?

If it has been more than 3-4 years since you had a professional portrait taken for your profile or business then chances are it doesn't represent what you look like accurately.

Your profile photo is your digital representative of you in the world of today. Make sure it reflects it.

Recent articles on social media analyzed profile and professional business portraits for certain attributes about a person to rate them on competence, professionalism, likability, influence, honesty, and integrity. The finding was surprising.

  • Eyes and smiles increased likability and influence
  • Smiles with teeth showing also increased likability, approachability, and influence
  • Body posture and clothing choice increased professionalism and competency
  • Environmental Setting portrayed essentially no effect unless they portrayed a professional and tidy appearance

The analysis showed how important your professional profile image can be to those wanting to hire you. By hiring a professional photographer
it will help you ensure that you will look your best in your profile photos, business marketings materials, social media platforms and on your website.


Here is what Wikipedia Says about Business Portraits:

Corporate and Business Head Shots


Example of Corporate Head Shot On A Streamlined Gray Background

portrait is a painting, photograph, sculpture, or other artistic representation of a person, in which the face and its expression is predominant. The intent is to display the likeness, personality, and even the mood of the person.

Corporate head shots are portraits often produced digitally and used for engaging in social media, LinkedIn,  the 'about us' page and industry specialty sites. A headshot or head shot is often used for branding and to showcase the business leader's life, style and personality while corporations will use the headshot to merge branding between the people working for them and its agency. Traditional head shots are still taken in a studio setting, though shots "on-location" or "in-the-field" continue to increase in popularity. In both cases, backgrounds tend to be simple. Subjects are often shown head-to-chest or head-to-torso.

Corporate head shots serve a variety of purposes:

  • Annual reports
  • LinkedIn, Facebook, Twitter, Company Directories,  personal profiles as well as publisher profiles
  • Facebook
  • About us page
  • (Nonstandard) résumés
  • Corporate catalogs, brochures, and advertising collateral
  • Company publications and websites, internal and external
  • Press releases and other announcements
  • Marketing materials
  • Articles and newspapers
  • Author pages

Branding Headshots and Branding Portraits


Branding Headshots and Branding Portraits may be a corporate or business headshot with the difference being that the image is designed to convey the individuals or a corporate branding identity. A corporation may choose a streamlined background like the one shown here for all its headshots while an individual may choose an action, experience or background objects to identify his or her brand. Large Corporations, firms and/or agencies will usually have a manual for the type and style of the headshot to be photographed.

These business or branding portraits were all shot on different days but the style and lighting were consistent. Only minor color shifting was noticed and was fixed in the final images. Having and keeping the same professional photographer will ensure your branding is consistent.


Also background color is important to consider. If you need the images for other purposes can the same image be used? Well if that is needed we suggest the gray or white backgrounds to our clients for easy extraction and digital background replacement.

Here is are some example images of an extraction onto different backdrops.

Other business photo shoots can be included with business portraits such as team photos, office interior shots, exterior business shots, manufacturing and product shots. These additional photographs can help give your client a look at the people to put a face to the voice of whom they are working with and what your company looks like and does before ever entering your business. It also help tie images into your branding.
