Sometimes business owners and/or professionals have a NJ Headshot photographer take their headshots at a photography studio and sometimes they have their headshots taken at their own place of business. When do you shoot in studio vs on location? What is an environmental portrait?
“An environmental portrait is a portrait executed in the subject’s usual environment, such as in their home or workplace and typically illuminates the subject’s surroundings.” These kinds of headshots or photos are beneficial when you want your potential clients or customers to be able to imagine what their experience may be like when they come to your place of business.
When you see these photos of Amy’s new beautiful yoga studio Flux Yoga in Cedar Grove, New Jersey, doesn’t it just embody peace and light?
Environmental portraits require staging and planning in advance to ensure that any items and miscellaneous things e.g. post it notes, papers, garbage etc. are not in the background. As for headshots, it is my responsibility to guide you, pose you and artistically light you to ensure that I am capturing you in the most flattering way. I then edit and retouch the images not just for your portrait but the entire image itself and make sure that the photos properly represent your brand!
If would you like some assistance with professional hair and makeup application I have professional make up artists that could not just provide their pampering services at my studio, however, they can also travel to your business. In addition, if you would like assistance with any wardrobe styling I have great referrals for CIPs (Certified Image Professionals) that I would be happy to share who could go to your home and arrange a few looks with you or even go shopping with you as well.
You should customize your personal branding/business portrait session and ensure that you can put your best foot forward. You want to do this so that you can make the best first impression to potential clients and /or customers who find and ‘meet’ you on the internet!
