LinkedIn & Website Profile Portraits - Chatswood Studio

When execs stop by the studio for their portraits, this is what a regular headshot session looks like.

We check that clothing, makeup (if any), and hair are all put together then we decide on our background colour choices. We look at a 5 second slideshow if the client has not already looked on my website and made their decision. 

Depending on the industry, the chosen colour can vary. The corporate's from the Tech or Pharmaceutical industries seem to go for the blue. It looks professional but stands out when you are scrolling through hundreds of little heads on LinkedIn.

Gray is very popular because it looks extremely professional and doesn't offend. White is often the standard for many a company website because it is easy to associate with other colours already used and the person can be cut out of the background easily and also used in newsletters etc.

We shoot from a few different angles and apertures so that we capture as many variations as possible. For this shoot, we were only after headshots but sometimes we do the entire range 3/4 and full length shots including a change of jacket, tie or shirt.

We end up with a gallery of approx 50-80 images from which the final selections are made. And that's now have the best looking photo on the web!
