Headshots are no longer limited to the acting profession. Today, corporate or executive headshots are a very popular marketing tool for professionals in every sphere – from auditors to writers.
There are certain crucial differences between an actor's headshot and a corporate headshot. When it comes to an actor's headshot, it must follow the exact rules set by casting agents, while at the same time make the agent interested in the actor. A good headshot of an actor represents a delicate balance, building a relationship with the viewer of the image while staying inside the prescribed guidelines.
Executive and corporate headshots offer some more flexibility because there are no cut-and-dry rules for them. This kind of image must reflect one's personality while presenting a professional look. Plus, the definition of a professional look can vary from industry to industry, from a suit and tie on a banker to a leather jacket on a music label producer.
We will shoot a variety of looks, we typically aim for four, to give you as many options to choose from as possible. There aren’t a specific number of shots per look. Instead, we will shoot each look until both we all agree – yes, that's the one.
Don't worry that you will stand in front of the camera for hours, only to find that you like none of the finished images. In our headshot sessions, you will be part of the editing process. Together with us, you will take a look at each and every shot and decide whether you want to keep it or scrap it. There will always be shots that are "almost there" – that's where we will tweak, adjust, and shoot again until we hit perfection. By taking part in the editing process and approving of each shot along the way, you can be sure that the headshots you take home will be ones you are perfectly happy with.
In the end, there will usually be several hundred shots, and you will get a selection that you have personally approved. Those will be uploaded to your personal password-protected review and proofing area, where you can take a look at them after the session to further narrow down your choices, and pick specific headshots to use for specific purposes. You will also be able to share the page with your friends, family or anyone else you wish to consult.
Retouching is a very important step, and an art form in itself. If done badly, it can ruin even the best of photographs. Low-quality retouched shots often feature unnatural-looking skin, freakishly white teeth and eyeballs, etc. To make sure that the quality of our work remains uncompromised, we do all our retouching ourselves. We respect our clients and our own work too much to cut corners. Also, we consider our retouchers among the best in their field, with years of experience in the fashion, modeling and headshot industry.
