Deciding what sort of corporate headshot you should use on your company website, pitch documents, presentations and your LinkedIn profile. Our suggestion here come from our experience with our corporate headshot commissions. Companies are coming to us requesting that we shoot their new headshots in two different ways. They are asking for the traditional business headshot which is taken in our studio with a clean white background and the sitter in formal business attire. Men in a dark suit with white shirt and tie. Women in dark jackets with white shirts. Companies also want a less formal corporate headshot and this is captured with an office background and men and women without jackets and with open-neck shirts. These headshots usually involve the sitter looking more relaxed and smiling.
In instances where a more formal business photo styling is required, the formal business styling is used.
- A sports jacket, blazer or suit jacket must be worn. Please stick to neutral and muted colours.
- For men, a dress shirt and a tie must be worn.
- Open-collared dress shirt must be paired with a sports jacket, blazer or suit jacket. The colour of your dress shirt can be of a brighter shade, but your jacket should not be a loud colour (e.g., neon yellow or green).
- Blouse can be worn without jacket and can be of a brighter colour.
