With many businesses refreshing their websites and celebrating new hires, I’m taking time to answer some FAQs about business and corporate headshots today. Is it worth the effort? What’s involved? Is it hard to coordinate? Can we get this done quickly?
If you have other questions or want to go ahead and get started, give me a call at 443-907-7591 or shoot me an email: email@example.com
1. Are professional headshots worth it?
Stepping outside of your busy workday to plan a photoshoot feels like 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 online presence 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 stiff or overly formal.
2. What’s the process?
The process starts with you getting in touch with me either by email or phone. I’ll ask how many people in your company need headshots, where you’d like the headshots to take place (I usually come to your place of business with my studio setup) and send you an estimate. Once the estimate is approved, I’ll set up a planning session with you to finalize all the details so we can create headshots that reflect the aesthetic of your business and brand. This planning session usually lasts about 30 minutes.
3. Is this hard to coordinate?
This is one of the benefits of hiring an experienced headshot photographer – I know how to make the process go smoothly and with minimal impact to your workload. I’ll give you tips on what info needs to be communicated to company employees (what to wear, how to prepare), and help you develop a timeline for the day so everyone knows when and where to show up.
We usually hold the headshot sessions at company HQ for a 1 – 4 hour period over 1 or 2 days depending on your company size, work schedule, and preferences. Image turnaround time is about two weeks (rush may be available – just ask for details!).
