Headshots and Executive Portraits

(commercial, theatrical and personal headshots)

Headshots are often the first impression you get to make. Unlike a standard portrait that is designed to flatter the subject for aesthetic reasons, headshots do much more. These portraits are carefully designed for connecting with clients. Whether used in marketing or for annual reports, your headshot builds a bridge between you and the viewer.  As a business person, executive, entertainer or author, a quality executive portrait is a vital part of your business.

There are three basic categories: commercial, theatrical and personal.

Your commercial headshot conveys a light-hearted and fun feel while exuding trust and integrity. A neutral coloured wardrobe works best (unless bright colours are integral to your personality). The viewer of your headshot should feel warmth from your photo that compels them to want to know more about you.

Theatrical headshots give your agent a likeness to submit for television, film and stage work. The nature of the theatrical market requires a more subtle and responsible approach. For the most part theatrical parts have much more at stake. A great deal of money, time and effort go into these productions and those doing the casting want reliable professionals. The theatrical headshot should convey a feel of responsibility, reliability and dependability. Even a casual viewing of the image should communicate feelings of professionalism and trust.
