How to figure out your target market: Part I

I’ve been a headshot photographer in Los Angeles for over 15 years. One of the most noticeable differences in the photography industry is the digital revolution allowing many talented amateurs easy entry into the world of photography. The affects of digital technology also trickled into the actor’s world. Duplication labs suddenly had the ability to reproduce color headshots cost efficiently, in turn, giving actors the ability to afford color reproductions. From there the color headshot was born and photographers scrambled to make the switch during 2003 [...]

Whether you’re a doctor, a lawyer, or a realtor, you may find yourself needing professional portraiture for your company website or for self-promotion. In business, Professional corporate executive portraits are the best way to market yourself effectively. If you've never had the experience of shooting a professional headshot, don't worry, you're in good hands. As a portrait photographer I direct you and get you talking about yourself so that your focus becomes having fun rather than how you look in your individual corporate headshots. Your business headshots or business portraits will have a lot of warmth.

Corporate Portrait Photography

There are different types of corporate photographers with differnt styles of corporate photography. My personal preference is to create corporate photographs
or an executive portrait that has a lot of life. The best executive headshot is one with warmth. Professional portrait photography has shifted gears
in the last few years. The kind of corporate photo that's in demand is no longer posed; rather, the best business headshot seems to create a window into the
portraits taker's personality. Corporate head shots are usually done on location in the building of your company with studio lighting.

Corporate Headshots

A typical corporate portraits session would include shooting ten or more people at the same location on the same day, to help keep costs down.
If natural light portrait photography is preferred, it is offered as an option if the company location is appropriate, otherwise, most executive portrait photographers
bring studio lighting to give corporate photogrpahs the fromality they need. For the best corporate lawyer photo, a lawyer photographer may sometimes do
a variety of both natural and studio light giving the client professional portraits that have a lot more range.

Executive Portraits Photographer

A professional photographer will always bring a crew consisting of a makeup artist and assistant to help with the shoot. The assistant helps with transporting
and setting up lights for the portable business portrait studio and the makeup artist helps you look as good as you can for camera without looking like you have
any makeup on. Even a corporate photo needs a little makeup. If you wish to have executive portraits with the same results as what you see in my porfolio,
makeup is very much a part of the end result. Professional makeup for executive portraiture is applied lightly but with enough coverage for camera.

Corporate Portraits

Professional photographers offer different packages for a corporate headshot session. Most portrait photographers, including myself,
provide online proof sheets for viewing images. Any CDs with professional corporate photography are custom made to order depending on whether or not you
need master files for press or publication, or if you need files for web use only. Most executive photography packages include at least one
professional corporate head shot that's been lightly retouched, otherwise corporate portrait photograhers offer varying packages. Give us a call
for a corporate head shots with personality package tailored to your needs! We also have many headshot resources for actors and headshot photographers.

Internet and Online Dating Photographers

Since dating photos are the most important element of online dating, if you’re serious about meeting that special someone, then you’ll need
to consider taking professiional photos for online dating!

Too often online dating photography and high quality dating photography is simply overlooked. Instead, people settle for bad snapshots that only
blend in with the myriad of bad online dating photos. To create a successful dating photo, you’ll need to consider what others are looking for
in an online dating photo.

For one, when browsing online dating sites for potential matches, people look for consistency in photos for online dating. Rather than posting
only one great dating headshot, your dating photos should include a variety of candid looking, yet professional internet dating photos.
Your dating headshots should range from ¾ online dating pictures, giving people an idea of your physique, to close up online dating profile photos
so that others can clearly see your features. For success with internet dating, look for online dating photographers that can capture candid dating headshots.
Internet dating photographers able to do so, create online dating headshots that show you on your best day without letting others know you’ve paid
for professional dating headshots!
