How you can benefit from a professional business photo for marketing yourself or your business
The image you show your clients is a key part of marketing yourself. Professional business headshots should tell your clients who you are, and make them want to do business with you. I work to understand your personal brand, so that I can show you authentically in your business headshots. When you hire True Image Studio, you are not just paying for someone to take a photo. You are hiring me to represent your brand.
Business Headshots for Social Media and beyond
Social media has lots of profile photos of low quality, poor color and poor lighting. Handing someone your cell phone for a picture might seem like the easy choice, but it can also be costly. The photo you use online makes your first impression. If you are using a social media picture that came the cheap and easy way, it misses something important.
A Professional Business Photo with Your Personal Brand
Just as a company’s brand identity describes how the company wants to be perceived, your personal brand describes you. We make an effort to create the best perception when we meet new people in business. We all have a certain way that we want to be perceived. How do people in business perceive you?
Your profile photos should incorporate your personal brand. Reflecting the genuine you will build credibility and trust with the people you meet.
When your portrait is simply a price decision, you may be compromising in the wrong places. A professional business photo will last you longer, and offer better value.
Our Process for Business Headshots:
We bring the studio to you: Stay at your office and let us do the traveling.
Complimentary Consultation: We talk about clothing and the image you would like to project.
Your Portrait Session: We take your portraits based on the details we discussed during your consultation.
Fast and Hassle-Free Review: We review your images as we photograph. No need for a second appointment to review.
Delivery of Your Portraits: We retouch all images, and deliver within 2 business days.
Full Service: I will put your new portrait into all your social sites and send the correct files to your vendors.
At your consultation, we set the date, time and location of your portrait session. We also discuss important information about clothing, props or any other items. Most importantly, we talk about who you are. I look at your existing portraits and talk about what you like or what you would change. I also invite you to bring sample business headshots that you like to the meeting. Our time at the consultation is brief, but is key to using your time wisely during your session.
Your Portrait Session
During your session, we freely photograph for the time scheduled. We set no limits on posing or clothing changes. We photograph with a basic game plan, developed from your consultation. Working without setting limits allows us to focus on getting the portraits you want. Without these limits, we will also complete the session more efficiently.
Fast and Hassle-Free Review Process
We understand that taking business headshots is not your favorite thing, and have a fast and hassle-free process.
- I photograph quickly and efficiently, making the best use of your time.
- During your session, we review your portraits and choose your favorites.
- With finalized choices, I produce and deliver the images within 2 business days.
Each session includes 2 retouched digital images. We usually choose your favorites during the session. If you choose to review your images after the session, we post an online gallery. We deliver images in all of the formats needed:
- High resolution files for archive purposes
- Web resolution files with great quality and compact size (PNG format)
- Print ready files, ready to take straight to your printing company (CMYK format available on request)
- A social media copy perfectly sized for your profile
I deliver business headshots within 2 business days via a download link, which is good for up to 3 months.
For an added fee, you may add more poses from your session to the order. The price is based on the number of images selected and includes retouch.
Let me do the technical stuff
I take the technical hassles out of business headshots. In addition to bringing a studio to your location, here is how I save you even more money:
- carry the load of storing and managing your portraits in a secure, permanent archive
- put your portraits into your social profiles for you
- deliver the right format of your portrait to the professionals who manage your website, print and graphics projects
All of this is part of the price. There is no extra charge for this service.
Web and Social Media Portraits
Every portrait we deliver includes a copy for most social media profiles, web pages, etc. Those files are small enough to load fast on web sites and fit the requirements of social media sites. The file will still look good everywhere you see it. We have a format that fits most situations, but will gladly change the format or size to fit.
Mobile Photography Studio
Many clients choose to have us bring the photography studio to them. We setup a studio at your location and capture business headshots. This saves you a lot of time and hassle while offering you the same services you would get at a studio. Find out more at our Mobile Studio Photography Services page.
Hair and Makeup
True Image Studio offers a hair and makeup consultant for the session upon request. We also have basic recommendations on our Clothing Guidelines for Portraits page.
Special Pricing for Multiple Portraits
If multiple people in your office need portraits, you save money by scheduling one day of portrait sessions. We pass on the savings of lower cost and time efficiency when we can book one block of time at a single location. There is less of our time involved in setting up and tearing down equipment. When we schedule multiple portraits, each person photographed will still get the same attention we give to a single portrait. That includes a portrait consultation, image review during the session and recommendations for the best images.
