For the past few weeks, I’ve discussed preparation and thought process in regards to actor headshots. Today, I want to switch gears for a bit because there also is a lot of preparation and thought process involved in portraits for executives. Here are three important things to consider when preparing for your Executive Portrait:
- You need to really consider the market you are in, and what looks appeal to that market. If any aspect of your portrait doesn’t add to the message you want to portray to you customer, then that portrait isn’t right for you or your business.
- The wardrobe you choose should reflect who you are and what you do. “Business casual” and “Business formal” portray two totally different looks.
- If you choose to add accessories to your photos, make sure they help reflect what you do and add to the message you want your customer to receive and level of trust you want your customer to feel. Any distracting elements that don’t reinforce that message and level of trust will take away from both.
These elements, while seemingly simple, can either make or break your Executive Portrait. I hope this information helps you create a portrait that will help you reach your goals. If you would like to schedule a free consultation with MTM Photography to discuss an Executive Portrait session for you and your business, give me a call at (414)758-1311 or email me at Lekan@mtmphoto.com.
