What Are Headshots?

A headshot is a portrait that focuses on a person. Usually, this is a close-up of the person’s head and shoulders to highlight who they are visually. Headshots are used for various purposes, including profile images, promotional pictures, about us pages online, and much more.

Why Should I Get a Professional Headshot?

Business headshots build trust before you even meet someone. A high-quality photo is often the “first impression” a person gets of you. Typically, you meet a person face-to-face and how you introduce yourself and carry yourself is the first impression. 

With a business headshot, that photo gives a person a brief introduction of who you are.

Not having a professional headshot when that brief introduction is made can cost you business, make you seem unapproachable, and people will lose trust before they’ve even spoken to you.

What Can You Do with Headshots?

Your business headshots can be used in a variety of ways:

  • Business cards
  • Social media
  • Websites
  • Resumes
  • Billboards
  • Marketing, advertising, and publicity
  • Email confirmation
  • Employee recognition
  • Annual reports
  • Presentations
  • Press releases
  • Brochures
  • Job applications
  • Medical residency applications
  • Franchise application

The best business headshots do more than make you look great. It is statistically proven that people feel a greater connection with someone once they have seen their face, even if they have never met them in person. This is especially true where an individual is the face of the business.

We will create a complete business headshot photography package for you, including individual and group portraits of your entire team. Jonathan Fanning is a professional business photographer who can make any professional look trustworthy and competent.

How to Smile for Your Business Headshots

Finding the right smile can be a challenge. A fake smile leaves people feeling guarded and makes you seem less trustworthy, but how do you get the perfect shot?

The best tip is to think about something funny. Laughter often produces the most authentic smiles, which are easy enough for even a child to accomplish. Think about a positive memory, funny joke, or silly meme.  

No time to come to our studio? No problem. We can come to your office and set up a mobile studio saving you and your staff time and money. Ask about our special group rates.

If you are looking for attractive, high-quality business headshots and corporate photography, Jonathan Fanning will capture the right shot for you. Some of the top industries we create business headshots for include attorneys, realtors, insurance agents, and financial advisors.
