5 Tips to Getting Great Corporate Headshots


 
Self Improvement

Corporate headshots in DC are important for your company. They can be used on your social media sites, company documents, and the "about" page of your website. When taking the picture, it's important to use a professional and remember the following tips in order to get the best results possible.

Clarify Your Brand

Think about what you want to convey with your picture. How do you want others to perceive you? The picture should reflect your personality and the industry for which you work. If you're a DJ at a night club, you don't want to look like a banker in your headshot. On the other hand, if you're the CEO of a company, you probably don't want to look like the drummer in a punk rock band. Branding is an important factor to consider when thinking about your picture. Make sure that the final results reflect the image that you want to convey to others.

Choose Timeless Clothing

You might be wearing stylish and chic clothing now, but your clothing can date the picture in just a year or 2. Make sure that you wear colors and styles that seem timeless. Otherwise, you better plan on taking a headshot on a regular basis. If you work in an industry that requires you to look chic and updated, then this isn't a bad thing. You should take pictures on a regular basis to show your clientele that you're style evolves with the changing the season. If you don't work in one of these industries, then it's best to stay away from patterned clothing and wear something more neutral. Wear simple jewelry and stay away from accessories.

Get Comfortable

Most people don't like taking headshots. It feels unnatural, which often results in a picture that looks stiff and unnatural. You don't want a picture that doesn't reflect who you really are or repels possible clients. Make sure that you relax and get comfortable so you can get a natural-looking headshot in the end.

Rethink the Background

One of the most common backgrounds that people request is a white background. It's simple and easy to work with for clothing options. However, what happens if the picture stands against a white background on your company website? All of a sudden, you have a floating head effect. You don't want this because it won't look as professional. Instead, you might want to think of using a different background. Talk to your photographer to determine the best background that will work with the brand that you want to convey with your picture and the website that you have for your company.  

Keep It Simple

The bottom line is this: keep it simple! You'll look professional, and your headshot will be able to be used for a wide range of things. You should aim for a natural and subtle look for the picture. It goes back to branding. What do you hope your clients will focus on when they see the picture? What image do you want to portray of yourself? When you keep it simple, clients can focus on you and the image that you portray in the headshot.

Another important factor when getting corporate headshots in DC is the person who takes your photo. You shouldn't just have your next door neighbor snap the shot. You shouldn't just take a quick selfie at work. You need to have a professional who can advise you on the proper way to pose and look natural so you can get the results that you want. Discuss your ideas about branding with your photographer so you're both on the same page as you work to get the best pictures possible.
