Using colorful headshots to send the right message

First, there is an art to looking relaxed and professional at the same time! For a young, technology based company like RKD Group, we used the bright colors in their offices, natural light and relaxed body language to create that “it’s fun to work here” look. They didn’t want all the backgrounds to be the same, so we worked our way through their open areas incorporating color and light where we found it. The results were bright and full of energy. They look like the fun professional people that they really are.

Using primarily natural light, we shot waist-up portraits and left plenty of room for cropping so their web designer had lots of options and the images could also be used in a variety of ways. These can be square images (for LinkedIn) or dropped in to PowerPoint presentations as needed.

Good employee headshots should work hard for you! See more examples of what we do for Dallas area businesses, here: http://www.headshots.teresaberg.com

Are Business Casual headshots too casual for your business?

It depends. The obvious answer is to match your headshots to your brand and match your brand to the industry you compete in.  But what about standing out in your universe?  Do you want to send a subtle message that you’re just a little bit more hip than your competitors?  Or that your firm is younger and leaner than the bigger guys?  Or maybe than you’re still “young enough?” We can help.

We live in the world of visual cues. Sometimes something as simple as the angle of your shoulders or the color of your clothing sends a message.  What type of lighting tells the story that is right for you? Not every business has a marketing department focused on these things.  If you need to sit down and study some sample business headshots and discuss the options –give us a call. We’re always ready to offer suggestions and go through the options.  We can even help you create a ‘style book’ — because maybe your sales people need a slightly different look than your C suite, or maybe you have multiple uses for your business headshot that require slightly different looks? As your business grows, your new employees can come to us and get the same look, lending continuity and building confidence in your firm.
