When you are in the corporate world, it is important to make a good first impression. Corporate Headshots play an important role in this process. Headshots are typically used for things like LinkedIn profiles, business cards, and websites. Headshots can also be used for branding purposes or even just as your Facebook profile picture!
Below we will talk about what Corporate Headshots are, why they’re so helpful and how to get them done quickly with minimal fuss or hassle.
1) What is this headshot about?
Headshots may also be referred to as executive or business portraits. – They typically show the subject looking directly into the camera lens, with an open and approachable facial expression that gives off positive vibes!

2) How to get the perfect headshot?
To get headshots, you’ll want to hire a professional photographer. Corporate headshots are typically done with the subject’s full outfit on and they’re usually trying to portray themselves in an executive role (think “business” not “beach”). Professional photographers know all of this so that is what you can expect when you book your session!
If possible, find someone who has experience photographing corporate headshots – it will save time because there won’t be any learning curve or trial-and-error involved during shooting. You should also ask about lighting – do they have a photo studio? Will natural light work well for Headshots? If not, would they be willing to build/rent one quickly if necessary? These are all important questions. Headshots are not the same as standard headshots – they typically require higher-end equipment and more time to set up properly (especially if you’re shooting at a studio instead of outside).
The session should take about 30 minutes or so for Headshots. For one, hair & makeup will need some extra care in order to make sure your subject looks their best! Also, it’s much easier to figure out the right lighting when there is only one person involved rather than several people who may move during shooting. Remember that Headshots are meant to be flattering but also realistic – meaning no crazy poses or exaggerated smiles! Instead, try looking straight into the camera with confidence while showing your real personality through body language and facial expressions.
