Business portraits, including head-shots, are very important in our image-driven, social-media hungry society. Business owners use images of themselves on Linkedin, Face Book, blogs, printed brochures, business cards and other media. Because business owners ARE the face of their businesses, looking great is essential for self and business promotion. How many times have you looked at someone’s photo and seen that they took it with it at arm’s length with their phone? Not a professional look.
Distinguish your self and your business from the competition–showing your creativity, your passions and your self in the best possible light. If you want to WOW your potential clients and have them notice you, consider my new Business Portrait Package, “The Whole Shebang.“
The Whole Shebang package is all-inclusive and comes with everything you need to make a visual impact AND feel like a rock star in the process. Prior to our shoot, I consult with you and your design and web team to make sure your images fit beautifully with your graphic design. You and I explore the keywords that describe you and your business and we discuss how your images will convey that message including location, posing, lighting, props, clothing, color, etc. The photo day starts with makeup and hair by a professional makeup artist. Now that you look like a star, you and I go out on a photo adventure photographing you in various locations with as many wardrobe changes as you like. We might go to a park, an urban setting, your place of business or some other pre-arranged locations. Posing as a model takes a lot of effort so I will treat you to lunch as well. Following our photo day, we will review your portfolio and you will select your favorite twelve images so that you can rotate your Face Book and Linkedin portraits once a month for a year and you’ll have plenty of variety to use in all your promotional material.
To complete the package, I will write about you on my blog and link to your web site. You get it all which is why it’s called The Whole Shebang! Contact me at to arrange your own session.
