Corporate and Business Headshots

for Portland and the Pacific Northwest

Have you noticed how over the last couple of years, business portraits (headshots) are far more important than they used to be? On company web sites and social networking services like Linked-In, Facebook, Twitter and all the rest, clients have come to expect to see fresh photographs of the professionals who serve them. Seeing a picture is a vital step in building an enduring relationship, whether a client or customer is considering a first time meeting, or maintaining a long-term relationship with you. Over the years, Paul and Brenda have developed a reputation creative business portraits that clearly communicate confidence, friendliness, professionalism, trustworthiness, integrity, accessibility, intelligence — whatever the specific qualities and personality traits you need to project in your headshot.

We Can Work With You

Or your firm's team

While much of our work is commissioned by the subjects of our photos, we often work directly for corporations and organizations. We have worked side by side with doctors on the clinic floor, flown with CEOs in their corporate jets, worked within the halls of state and local government, and prepared countless headshots and other imaging for press kits announcing corporate mergers, grand openings and facility moves, political appointments, bill signings, product launches, and staff promotions. We can interface professionally with anyone, maintain absolute discretion and total confidentiality when necessary, and get our job done with speed, relentless attention to detail, and a minimum of turbulence and interruption to your busy schedule.

Can’t I just do this myself?

It can be very tempting to whip out your iPhone and have someone snap your picture standing in front of an office wall. And every day we see otherwise brilliant business people trying to get by with a photo from a well-intended family portrait photographer or other studio with little experience creating headshots for professional use. The result can be an expensive mistake in terms of lost credibility and missed opportunities. It’s so easy and inexpensive to have your headshot created by proven headshot photographers like Paul and Brenda, there is simply no excuse for anything less!

How long will this take?

Typically, a headshot session can be completed in our studio in 15 minutes to half an hour. Add another 45 minutes if you are planning to have an on-set makeup artist. We also can shoot on location or on your business premises. This can be especially helpful when you want to create headshots of several members of your staff or team, without requiring them to take time out of their busy day to travel to our studio. For the most time-constrained subjects, with proper preparation we can successfully complete a session in less than five minutes.

How it Works

What's Included?

A relaxed photography session shot in high-resolution professional digital in our studio, on-location, or outdoors (weather permitting). We shoot between one and four different looks (a "look" is a wardrobe, lighting, background, or location change). Within 48 hours after your session, we upload your selections to an online gallery at high resolution. Your pictures are ready to share, download, print and use! You can download any or all of the images from your gallery at hi-res any time you like for any purpose (see the Usage License we provide for specifics). The images will remain in your gallery for at least one year. You can order prints in a range of sizes from wallets to 8x10, even huge canvas wall prints directly from your gallery. For your convenience, we even allow you to download the images and have them printed at another lab. Volume discounts are available.

Your Photo Session

We're full-time professionals, so weekday, evening, and weekend sessions are available by appointment. Same-day appointments are often available. No fixed time limit or number of frames - we shoot until we are confident we've created some great headshots for you; typically we shoot around 30 frames, and most sessions last around 30 minutes. Again though, we don't have fixed "rules," we shoot until we are confident that we have a good selection of headshots for you. If you choose to have one or more of your images professionally retouched (including hair straightening, blemish removal, wrinkle softening, skin smoothing, teeth whitening, etc.) just let us know which photos you want retouched.

Payment

Without exception, payment is due on the day of the session; we accept cash, check, and major debit and credit cards. Orders for retouching, prints, or digital media are payable at time of order. To keep our costs low, we do not offer terms, 30-day payment, credit, etc.

Makeup and Hair Styling

Makeup and hair styling is not included in our base prices. For women, we usually recommend makeup; for men, makeup is rarely necessary. For our clients who choose to have their makeup done, we suggest an in-studio makeup artist who is familiar with the important differences between makeup for a headshot and salon-type glamour or bridal makeup. If you would like us to provide a makeup artist at your session, please let us know when you make your appointment so we can make the necessary arrangements so we can arrange to have one here.
