Corporate Headshots & Portraits

A portrait, is the fruit of intense aesthetic focus, and what could be more flattering than having that focus fixed on yourself? ~Sophie Haigney (In a New York Times article)

There is a version of you, waiting to be brought out and that's what my photography is about. You avail my photography service and you will forget selfies and photos taken on your smartphone.


Corporate Headshots

10k Portraits' Corporate Headshots are high key or low key with no distractions. These are shot close-up with a white or a gray backdrop (can be any color though) up to half the upper arm length as you can see above. Headshots are business like, simple yet effective in conveying your personality. These can be formal or informal depending on what you need.

Corporate Headshots are useful as profile pictures in websites, social media profiles and for intros in presentations or in brand building content.

Corporate Portraits are useful as profile intros on websites, in presentations or for brand building. 

10k Portraits' Corporate Headshots and Corporate Portraits are shot on location (in offices and homes or outdoors) with white or gray backdrop. Backdrop color can be changed to suit any specifications.

White Background: Headshots and portraits with a white background sound a bit boring but this style of headshots have some really important applications. In LinkedIn, Twitter, Facebook business pages or any other social media avatars or where ever a completely consistent style is needed across multiple locations and multiple headshots and portraits, white background headshots can be a very useful of all headshot styles. Male and female headshots work equally well on white backgrounds and the emphasis is on the subject. With no distractions. Facial expressions and personality jump out at the viewer.

Gray or Dark Background: Headshots and portraits with a gray or dark background are shot with an ambient colored wall or backdrop and then, by manipulating the camera and flash settings, the subject will be perfectly lit whilst the background will pale to a dark tone or even to black. As with white background headshots the emphasis is still on the subject but the atmosphere is different, stronger in many ways. Dark or gray background can add drama to headshots and is an effective alternative to white backgrounds. Dark background portraits work well when people choose light colors or bold colors to wear. Sometimes though a dark suit with a white shirt can be just as effective.

Colorful Background headshots are the most striking of all headshot styles. Whilst the emphasis is still on the subject the colorful backgrounds tell the viewer something about the subject and their brand.

Lifestyle / Environmental Portraits

10k Portraits' Lifestyle Portraits have a semi-formal feel, with you in your office or work area or outdoors or a real place in the background. These are suitable when you want a background or your surroundings that incorporates a part of the premises like corporate headquarters building, wall art, a piece of architecture, construction site, office premises or a manufacturing process. However, only a small part of the background is going to appear and it’s important that the background doesn’t conflict with the subject.
