Face value

A natural and engaging headshot is the ultimate way to put a face to a name.

Corporate headshots

High-quality corporate headshots are fundamental to building professional profiles for your key people. From company websites to social media, great headshots help connect with your audience and encourage them to read on. As a professional photographer specialising in corporate headshots and corporate portraits, I know how to put my subjects at ease to create the very best business profile photos. My experience and people skills ensure I capture natural and genuine corporate headshots that allow my subject’s confidence, character and professionalism to shine through.

Instant rapport

A great professional headshot connects the viewer with the subject. We’d all like to be seen as confident and approachable, maybe even charismatic, but there’s nothing like standing in front of a camera to make you feel awkward and uncomfortable. I usually only get to spend a few minutes with my subject; however, I have the knack for putting people quickly at ease and allowing their true personalities to shine through. It helps that I genuinely love meeting and getting to know people, no matter how brief that meeting may be.

Experience that counts

I’ve been involved with photographing people for over 30 years, both as a photographer and a creative director. I understand how hard it can be to stand in front of a camera; however, I know what it takes to get a great portrait. I’m adept at putting people at ease and guiding them into poses that look natural. I believe that a great headshot is a must-have for the way we do business today. Be it for a website, internal staff directory, LinkedIn profile or video conference thumbnail – a natural and friendly headshot is the best way to put a face to a name.

Background information

The effectiveness of a corporate headshot is helped a great deal by what’s going on in the background. I can keep it simple with a plain background. This can be an office wall, or I can provide a backdrop. Alternatively, I can shoot with an out of focus office interior, window or view in the background. A lot will depend on what is available at your location. Still, I’m pretty adept at showing up and making something work.

Employee headshot galleries

For organisations with larger teams, I can photograph all employees over several sessions. I then provide an ongoing service to photograph new recruits and graduate intakes as the need arises. I have a booking system that allows your team members to book a headshot session individually on designated shoot dates. This significantly reduces the admin overhead of scheduling multiple employees. I can travel to include interstate offices as required. Alternatively, I have a network of photographers who can take corporate headshots for smaller teams interstate whilst following my set-up guidelines. This approach ensures company-wide consistency across all headshots.

“Do you do Photoshop?”

It’s probably the most common thing I’m asked when photographing people. However, what makes a great headshot is quality lighting and a relaxed and well-posed subject. I have the experience and take the time to make sure people look their best when taking the shots. When headshots are photographed correctly, no Photoshop retouching is required. My corporate headshot package includes 8 fabulous, authentic, colour-corrected images, ready to roll. However, if something does need ‘fixing’ in Photoshop, then I’m happy to help.

How to prepare for corporate headshots

My number one piece of advice for preparing for your corporate headshot is to try not to stress about it. I appreciate that some people get very anxious at the thought of standing in front of a camera; for others, it’s not a big deal. The phrase I hear the most when people arrive for their session is “I hate having my picture taken”. I totally understand that feeling. However, all that anxiety and stress will get in the way of achieving a great shot. Lucky, with me, you’ll be in good hands. Please, let me know if you’re feeling particularly stressed; I’ll quickly put you at ease.

Other general advice is to make sure you’re well-hydrated in the days leading up to your session and on the day of your headshot. Additionally, make sure to get plenty of sleep the night before your photo so you’re rested and ready to go.

Posing

I will provide direction for posing, and we’ll try a variety of options and angles. However, the basic tips to remember are to have a relaxed posture with your shoulders back and to push your face slightly forward towards the camera.

Smile or no smile?

My preference is for a smile with teeth. This keeps you looking friendly and approachable and is how you would typically look when you meet someone in a work environment. However, for some people, that’s not their thing. If you’re unsure, take a look at the shots on this page and see what your preference is. Alternatively, have a look at other photographs of yourself. Either way, we can try a few different options, so you’ll have the choice.

What to wear

Choose an outfit that has a classic look and is appropriate for your industry and workplace. Plain colours are your best choice. That said, if bold colours are your thing, then go for bold! Make sure what you select has a flattering fit, is clean and freshly pressed. If you are wearing a tie, choose a shirt that fits around the neck with the top button done up.

Makeup

As a general rule, do your makeup how you would usually wear it in the workplace. For headshots, you want natural-look makeup. Match the colour of the foundation to the natural colour of your skin. Avoid glowy or dewy types as they may create excessive shine in the photos. An oil-free matte finish foundation works best. Your face will be well lit, so it’s ok to take your lips, brows and blush a touch darker than usual.

Final check

Lastly, take a quick stop-off to check yourself in the mirror before you go to have your headshot done. Give yourself the once over to make sure that you’re happy with how you look. Check that your hair looks good, there’s no food in or lippy on your teeth, and there’s no fluff or hair on your clothes.
