Photos of people not posing and just going about their business are especially useful for design purposes. The photo of some guy in some other office is not as powerful as your colleagues in your office. Tell your story without stock photos, transparency is key in 2018.Read More

To which, we ask right back at you: What are you trying to say? If you are a lawyer, or CEO, a suit and tie is often worn for your corporate portrait. However, if you’re at a forward thinking marketing startup, maybe you can wear something more tailored, and casual. However the case, we recommend looking up coworkers and competitors in your field to take a look at what their personal branding is if you are unsure.
That being said – there are a few guidelines. (Keep on reading to learn more)
MENS CORPORATE HEADSHOTS
- Wear your favorite suit that doesn’t bunch up when you sit down in it. Avoid distracting patterns and colors. When in doubt, think more conservatively.
- Ties look best when they are a shade in between the suit color and the shirt color. (ex. A black suit, a white shirt, and a blue-grey tie). Avoid repeating patterned or tightly stripped ties.
- If you’re looking for a more casual look, avoid polo shirts and T-shirts. A colored, button up shirt is a good in-between for a professional, but casual look. Darker colors for fairer skin tones and lighter colors for darker skin tones are a good choice, if you are unsure about what color shirt to wear.
WOMENS CORPORATE HEADSHOTS
- While you have more options for variety in your nature of dress, make sure your outfit remains classic – on trend styling, however corporate, can look out of date very quickly.
- Just as with mens corporate headshots, avoid loud patterns. Bright colors are acceptable, although it is inadvisable to wear red. (Red is the color your eye is most attracted to in any photograph.)
- Keep jewelry minimal, so that it doesn’t distract from your face.
- A little bit of texture in the fabric of what you choose to wear can add a nice accent to your headshot.
