Corporate Photographer Los Angeles – Vanie Poyey

Are you preparing for a corporate headshot? Whether you’re the CEO or an intern, there are a few important things to keep in mind. Here are four tips to help make sure your headshot looks perfect!

  1. How to pose: There’s no right or wrong answer here.  While there are some poses that are more common, such as crossed arms, glancing over the shoulder, and hands on hips, how you pose really depends on your line of work and the message you want to convey. However, if you struggle with posing, the right photographer will be able to direct the shoot in a way that gives professional results that convey what you’re all about.
  2. Be confident: Easier said than done, I know! First, a natural, relaxed expression will come across as more approachable and professional than a stiff, forced smile– relax your face and jaw! Keep tabs on your posture and be sure to stand up straight without slouching. And don’t be afraid to make eye contact with the camera!
  3. What to wear: Your wardrobe is key! Be sure to dress in clothes that fit well and flatter your figure, while avoiding busy patterns, bold colors, or excessive jewelry– all things that are distracting in a headshot. Your clothing should be appropriate for your line of work and neither too formal or too casual. Most importantly, make sure you FEEL good in it, as that goes a long way to the confidence we were just talking about.
  4. Hire a pro: For the best possible results, a professional business photographer is the way to go! They’ll have the experience and skillset to know how to capture you and your brand in the best light possible. And perhaps most importantly, a corporate headshot photographer will be able to help you relax and feel comfortable in front of the camera so you can show off your true personality – something that’s essential in creating connection and building rapport with your audience.

So, what’s the key to looking good in your next corporate headshot? It depends on your individual features and goals for the photo. But, if you want to look competent, approachable, and like someone who would be great to do business with, follow these tips! And if you need help putting together a shoot that will make you look your best, I’m here to help.
