Corporate Headshots for Perth Business Owners and Teams!
Glamour Portraits, Perth's new Corporate Headshots for Business Owners!
Look up the terms Corporate Headshots, Business Profile Photos, Executive Portraits and you’ll find an array of faces in a sea of suits. Some smiling 🙂 some looking serious 😐 and some looking a little stressed 🙁
Although some staff and business owners can look very handsome wearing their favourite suit, it’s not everyone’s cup of tea. Not everyone knows how to select a well designed suit to match their personality and body type. Some weren’t meant to wear suits all together, especially when it prevents their true essence from shining through during a corporate headshot portrait session.
Why your Corporate Headshot / Business Online Profile is critical
In today’s business environment the way your online presence appears is critical. Most people will see your online profile photo first (on LinkedIn, Facebook, Website) before they meet you in person. They will form an impression of you instantly or within two seconds, according to Malcolm Gladwell author of “Blink: the Power of Thinking without Thinking.” I’m sure anyone who has ever swiped on Tinder would agree.
Hence it’s imperative your Corporate Headshot has IMPACT! Not only does your business headshot need to stand out from the crowd, it needs to attract and connect with your ideal audience. Who are you trying to impress?
Corporate Headshots for General Staff and Executives
If you’re presenting yourself for a general staff or executive position to work for a small business or large corporate, then wearing a suit may be a safe option (in most industries). After all it’s important to look uniform when playing in a team. Some exceptions would be in the creative industries such as media producers, designers, stylists, where individuality is encouraged.
In this Corporate Headshot example we have Catherine and Jay applying for a cabin crew position with Emirates airlines. The job application photo requirements are quite strict with a mixture of formal photos on a clean white studio background and casual photos in an everyday environment.
The Heart Foundation is a national not-for-profit organisation dedicated to fighting heart disease, the single biggest killer of Australians. When organising their corporate headshots for the team we had to make it as convenient and quick as possible to minimise any intrusion to their working day, especially since so many staff are involved.
We setup our mobile flash studio in their boardroom and scheduled each staff for their headshot 2 minutes apart. This was enough time to help each team member check their styling, adjust their clothes and hair, photograph them from a variety angles and select their best headshot.
One of the leading real estate agencies in Perth Western Australia is Josh Brockhurst’s team at Century 21. When Josh contacted us to update his business corporate headshots we saw an opportunity to get a little creative. Besides taking individual professional profile headshots of each team member, we also took various combinations of team photos and a special corporate group photo in the shape of a C (for Century 21). Now that’s one way to help your brand become more memorable and stand out from the crowd!

Pryority Business Consulting is an award winning accounting practice headed by Jen Pryor.

For her corporate headshot photos, we’ve armed Jen with a range of popular expressions and poses in her signature blue top so she can use it in a variety of platforms such as LinkedIn, Facebook and Instagram.
Lizelle Hartley is one of Perth’s sought after fashion and wardrobe stylists and has recently launched her new venture SmartGirls.
