The Simple Headshot

Like everything else in the world it has to be fast, it has to have quality, and it has to be affordable.  The same goes for your companies head shots (Business Profile Image). Sometimes though you just cant get a good quality,  fast head shot for the right price.  

Well, I am here to tell you that it’s easy to nail down all three.  It really is. Business portraits are very very simple.  Where most setbacks happen is with the quantity of staff, like when you have 50+ people.  In the corporate world time is money, and most people don’t wish to be away from their work for more than a few minutes as it interrupts their production.

Luckily after 20+ years photographing all varieties of business portraits I have come to streamline the most common,  The simple head shot.  You know, the one used for company profiles, employee badges, LinkedIn profiles, inter-office communications and so on.  I have streamlined it to the point where it will take me no more than 1 minute from the time you shake my hand to the time you leave the room (unless you stay around and chat with me). This allows me to do a higher volume of employees in a matter of hours.  You could potentially have all your staff photographed without losing any production, and it’s all done on location at the workplace.

Top 5 Reasons To Have A Professional Head Shot

  1. Your Clients want to put a face to the person they are talking to on the phone or email.

  2. Employees should look professional.  The head shot selfie they took in their office does not say that.

  3. The process will be quick and painless for all employees.

  4. They are done on site with minimal space.

  5. You wont find a better deal for the amount of time, money and energy it will save your company.
