  • Eye Contact
    Eye contact is the must have feature for any business portrait. Eye contact is the only way for your photo to connect with the viewer. If your photo makes that sub-conscious connection your chances of receiving a call or  an email  improves.
  • Natural & Relaxed Look
    You should look natural and relaxed in the photo. Yes, easier said than done unless your photographer understands the process. A stiff look translates to the viewer and takes away from that much-needed connection with  the photo. Everyone is apprehensive about having a photo taken so I developed a few simple techniques to make you appear totally at ease no matter what is going through your mind.

You may wonder why all photographers can’t get the same results. The truth is I wonder about the same thing. Some have a grasp of the technical side of photography providing clean but dull images while other have a grasp of the artistic side but can’t blend the technical aspects needed for a good useable image.  A handful has mastered both including the business side which means on time delivery and keeping scheduled appointments.  If you like the work shown then call us to schedule a photo shoot. You will look the same as our sample images.

Business Portrait Procedure

When you come to the studio location I get right to work. Usually, the lights are set and only need a few seconds for  final adjustments.  Time in front of the camera is 2-5 minutes.  Yes, you read that right. No need to torture you for 45 minutes to get an exceptional photo if you know what you are doing. After I capture the images in camera the next step is to view on the computer and select the top 3-4 from the session. Sometimes we find a few more that make the final round but our goal is to have 1-2 exceptional images that stand out above all others. Next, we pick the best of the best to be re-touched.

At this point, your work is done and you can go back to the office or stay around and watch the retouching process. The goal of re-touching is simple. Remove temporary imperfections like acne or shaving cuts and reducing everything else to look like it does when standing a normal distance from another person. We won’t turn you into a plastic mannequin unless that is what you really want. In addition to retouching the face, we adjust the clothing, background, hair and can brighten up the teeth just a touch when needed.

After the retouching and cropping is finished ( 20-45 minutes) we burn you a copy of the final images or upload to a dropbox server.  This way you see the end product when at the studio and are 100% happy before you pay.
