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.

Interview Headshots for Cabin Crew

Interview Headshots for Cabin Crew

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.

Corporate Headshots for Organisations

Corporate Headshots for the Heart Foundation

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.

Business Team Headshots

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!

Corporate Headshots for VIPs & Celebrities

If you’re an established industry leader, it is most likely that you are confident of who you are, what you stand for and have a well curated wardrobe which reflects your personality.   

In this Corporate Headshot session with Norma Needham, a pioneer in Australia’s automotive industry, we’ve photographed her with strong bold colours with plenty of texture and detail in her outfits.  This aligns well with her warm personality and gregarious charm, which also extends to her physical environment as well. 

We conducted her portrait shoot on location at her beautiful custom built mansion “Longuevue”, which has been featured on popular reality TV series like “The Bachelorette”, “Beauty & the Geek” and “My Kitchen Rules”

Nicole Tan in Boudoir Photo Studio

Perth Fitness Photography – Nicole Tan IFBB

Congratulations to Nicole Tan for winning 2 international bikini fitness competitions in a row! Nicole is one of our dear clients we’ve had the joy of photographing recently at Image Style Studio.

Nicole Tan wins IFBB Bikini Competition

Originally from Singapore, Nicole has grown up in Perth and is now living her life’s purpose as a personal trainer and an International Federation of Bodybuilding and Fitness (IFBB) Bikini competitor working towards earning her pro card.

“As a trainer and coach I aim to help as many people as possible achieve their goals and live the happiest healthiest they can! It brings me joy to help people transform their bodies and love the skin they are in.”

Although Nicole has won 2 International competitions (in Singapore and Vietnam), achieving this has been a tremendous task for Nicole. You see, Nicole is an ectomorph, which means she naturally finds it difficult to gain weight or add muscle.  Hence her dedication to transforming her body and achieving her dreams is truly inspiring.

“Success is not final, failure is not fatal, but its the strength and resilience you have to keep going that counts”

If you’re looking for Personal Fitness Trainer in Perth, especially one that specialises in ectomorphs, connect with Nicole at www.facebook.com/nicoletanfitness/

Nicole's Fitness & Boudoir Photos

In these studio shots I used two 3ft strip soft boxes to achieve a softer feminine look for Nicole, while maintaining enough contrast to preserve her muscle definition.  Old school iron weights came in handy to complete this fitness figure photo.

Baby got back! Nicole shows her fine form. The warm burgundy tones of her active sportswear compliments our luxury boudoir suite at Image Style Studio.

Family Portrait 21st Birthday

Happy 21st Birthday Maria!

It was a real pleasure helping Maria celebrate her 21st Birthday today with a family portrait session at Image Style Studio.   She wanted a combination of personal portraits of herself in her bling fashion dress as well as naturally candid photos with her beautiful family.

With our modern lifestyles racing at a faster pace than ever, it's special moments like these that deserve some time to be celebrated and photographed in the best light to enjoy forever.

First time in a photo studio in front of a professional photographer, Maria showed a hint of shyness at the beginning of the shoot. Thankfully her bubbly personality came through within minutes, showing the super star she really is!

Her fashion choice of sparkly gold dress really complimented her warm skin tones, resulting in a stunning beautiful portrait.

Family Portrait Session with Maria

Well done to Maria’s parents who have done well to raise two gorgeous daughters!  We can definitely see where they've inherited their beautiful smiles from.

As I scurry from the main stage to the various wellness workshops, and navigate my way through each exhibitors booth, my heart beats with excitement as I capture those “A-ha! Lightbulb moments”.  The expressions are priceless as each festival participant receives that specific insight or wisdom they’re seeking.

Event Photography - more than just taking pretty photos

Event photography to me is so much more than just documenting the activities of the day.  

For me, event photography is about stepping into the shoes of the event organiser and each stall holder.   Each of these courageous heart centred entrepreneurs have a gift that they want to share with the world.  A gift that will help others and ultimately make the world a better place.

My mission is to present this amazing event in it’s best light so that more people will be aware of Secrets in the Garden and are keen to attend next year, or seek out the various vendors directly online.

Here are some of exhibitors I had the pleasure of meeting.
