Headshots of all company employees + CEOs for local businesses are something I’ve been doing more and more of in the past several years, and people have been asking me about the process. So today, I’m taking time to answer some FAQs about business and corporate headshots. What’s involved? Is it hard to coordinate? Can we get this done quickly? Is it worth the effort?
1. What’s the process?
The process starts with you getting in touch with me either by email or phone. I’ll send you my general pricing information and set up an in-person or conference call consultation/planning with you, which usually lasts about 30-45 minutes. It’s important that all the decision makers be present at the consultation.
2. Is this hard to coordinate?
I know things can change fairly last minute in a business so I try to remain as flexible as possible, but as long as we plan well and all the decision makers are present at our consultation (or are briefed, well-informed and in agreement) there’s no reason this needs to be a huge pain or add stress to your work week. I’ve done this before and know how to make the process go as smoothly as possible for you.
3. Can we get this done quickly?
We usually hold the shoot at company HQ for a 1 or 2 hour period over 1 or 2 days depending on your business size, schedule and preferences. Image turnaround time is two weeks (rush is available with a fee).
4. Is it worth it?
Stepping outside of your busy routine to plan a photoshoot is a big step, but the feedback I get time and again is that it’s absolutely worth the time, effort and investment to do this. Photographs are a key feature of a website, and your website communicates who you are and sets you apart from your competitors. Customers are more likely to trust you with their business, and it speaks better of your brand if you have excellent employee and CEO headshots. My photographs of you and your team will be expertly lit and look natural and approachable – never overly posed or too formal.
