Mandy was running for the election and wanted some clean and classy headshots for her promotional material. We recommend using a horizontal format of headshot so you have flexibility to extend the background to overlay text for posters and marketing material. Mandy booked the Deluxe package and brought a variety of outfit changes ranging from corporate to more casual to make the most of her time.

/ / / / / Editorial Studio Lighting Effects:

Marie is a local artist who wanted something unique and visually interesting for her profile picture. She had such killer style we thought it was a great choice to show her in a 3/4 format so we could get her unique rings in the shot as an accent, all the while capturing her graphic silhouette.

What we love about this pose is it shows the hands clearly (which believe it or not—psychologically comes off as trustworthy). Moreover it subtly focuses the attention on her face while still feeling natural. In a portrait, you want to make sure the attention is on the subjects face first (whether the client likes it or not). It is a fact that humans love looking at other peoples faces, and we always keep this in mind during our portrait sessions.

/ / / / / Tech Company Headshot

When it comes to your Linkedin headshot, it’s not always necessary to go with a suit jacket and tie. Here’s an example of a headshot for a tech company, demonstrating how even wearing just a shirt is still presentable. I would say that if you were to go for this look, there are still some things you have to consider when selecting. Opt for shirts that have subtle visual details such as the button and collar design, and even the weave of the shirt. In this case, a gentle polka dot pattern makes for a better choice than a plain button up, as it adds a bit of interest without being distracting.

/ / / / / Monochromatic Mood:

In this day and age, it may seem as if black and white headshots are a thing of the past, however we believe you should never write off that option completely! The reason being is a monochromatic photo will evoke emotions that a coloured photo never can reach. Our advice is when building your portfolio, it’s definitely a good idea to have one or two shots be in black and white to make variety of diverse looks in your book.

/ / / / / The Right Type of White:

Here’s a great example from our recent headshot session where we shot against our white background, where one could certainly speculate it appears more of an off white than what we traditionally might think of as white. Similar to when you are picking out paint colour, beyond that there are all sorts of finishes you can get that make the white appear brighter or duller.

Of course these subtle exposure changes can also be altered in photoshop later on and tweaked to your preference. Usually people will request a change of brightness to the background when incorporating the photos on their website and are wanting the images to match the white in their company branding.

Friendly and Professional Portraits, and Why you Shouldn’t Be Too Friendly:

/ / / / / How Warm is Too Warm

We have several choices of beige to select from, and the reason is not due to some trend running in course in the photography world. As I like to say, portraiture is a quite like a science. In previous blog posts I’ve talked about how warm toned clothing will look good on all skin types, which means the same logic proves true for backgrounds—right??

So the question becomes, if beige is so warm and lovely, why don’t you see us using more? The reason is though business portraits should be friendly (and beige does encompass that quality) it also goes above and beyond in the realm of positive emotions, almost radiating compassion. To put it simple it’s a rather strong psychological reaction, which instantly makes the photo have more humanity. Professionally speaking, we suggest using our lightest beige for careers that involve more social interaction like a consultant or caretaker.

/ / / / / The Right Shade of Grey:

Although we don’t have 50 shades to choose from, we do have the option of either using a light, medium, or dark grey background for your session. But how do you know which is the right grey for you?

One tip we have is to breakdown your natural complexion into shades. Forgetting actual colours, imagine if you were to be photographed only in black and white and all colour information would transform into shades. For example, this navy suit would appear black, the tie medium grey, and the white shirt—well, white !

By breaking the categories down into light, medium, and dark, you can assess if all 3 elements are incorporated into the photo or not. Essentially it’s a process of deduction. If you have dark hair and a fair complexion like Peter does in the above example, then our medium grey option balances the look the best.

/ / / / / What to Wear Against Brick:

One tip we have in mind when dressing for your business headshot against a brick wall, is to keep things simple and colour blocked. At the end of the day, brick is still a pattern, so you want avoid having a top that is patterned as well. The pleats on Iman’s shirt are just about as pattern-y as we can get without losing the feeling of balance against this background.
Colour blocking essentially just means clothing with solid sections of colour, and not necessarily all in one colour. The dark edge on Iman’s top would be an example of colour blocking since the line is thick enough to feel like a shape, or a “block” as they say in graphic designer speak !
