What’s the Difference Between a Headshot and a Portrait?

The main difference between a headshot and a portrait is how the images will be used. Traditionally headshots are taken for official business use, while a portrait is more of a descriptive image used to tell a story about the subject.

Portrait

A portrait is a much broader term — essentially any image where the subject is aware she’s being photographed (even if she’s not looking at the camera). Portrait photography, or portraiture, is a type of photography aimed toward capturing the personality of a person or group of people by using effective lighting, backdrops, and poses. In professional portraits you can see wider variety of moods. Portraits are often more dramatic, subjects can be looking away from the camera or engaging in some kind of activity.

Headshot

A headshot is generally a close-up style shot from the chest up with good lighting on your face, and no strong dramatic shadows. Three-quarter shots are good for print. Its uses are for branding, marketing and for identifying an individual in the marketplace. Headshots may be in studio or on-location. Professional business headshots will normally have a relaxed and friendly feel to them. The subject will often smile. The reason for that is because subject is communicating a message to the observer. Examples of that message could be trustworthiness, friendliness and approachability.

For multiples and groups of headshots, we can bring our studio strobes and backdrops to your place of business. This way we can be on your employee’s schedule instead of the other way around. It is all done at your location usually in a conference room or like space.

Commercial advertising and public relations photographers.

The St Louis business community is very competitive so branding differentiation is important to corporate identity. We collaborate with businesses and designers to create signature business content to meet your branding goals. For instance, a medical device company or design firm may want a more stylized look than a traditional corporate headshot and a law firm or financial institution might want more conservative portraits.

If you are looking for corporate portraiture, we create clean, well-lit studio and environmental portraits for your company’s media and web sites; in office, studio and outdoor settings. Corporate head shots should distinguish the corporate leadership, so their portraits don’t look like your competitor’s portraits. There is a range of options that we can draw from to distinguish your leadership. We can also shoot groups at your location.

We also off a range of digital retouching and post production solutions, including swapping out backgrounds for people at scale, retouching ad compositing work. Light retouching is included on all individual portraiture.

Corporate photography rates are on a project-by-project basis, but we are competitive with St Louis photographers of equal merit. If you would like to see more examples of corporate lifestyle or portrait photography, we will put up a web gallery with more images for consideration.

An excellent companion to product photography, lifestyle or ‘action’ shots enhance your listings by showing your products in use. We also off a range of digital retouching and post production solutions, including swapping out backgrounds for people at scale, retouching ad compositing work. Light retouching is included on all individual portraiture.

Lifestyle images for Amazon listings, ad campaigns, or eCommerce websites highlight your goods in an eye-catching, creative manner and builds brand awareness.

Seeing a demonstration of how your product fits or functions raises consumer confidence and can increase your website or Amazon sales conversions. From clothing product photography on a model, to location shoots and custom sets, We create alongside your team to enhance lifestyle images to boost your listings.

PRODUCT PHOTOGRAPHY
The perceived value of your products and your trustworthiness is often based on how well your product is visually portrayed. In today’s competitive world having visually compelling photography is a major aspect of having an effective printed catalog or website. Showcasing your products with amazing photography can make the difference between a conversion or no sale at all. Given this fact, it’s essential that your photography be stylish, fresh, and create a positive impression on your customers.

ARCHITECTURAL EXTERIOR PHOTOGRAPHY
As an architectural photographer I draw on a wide array of skills to produce memorable images that convey a sense of place, an expression of the architect’s ideas, and a connection to landscape and its surroundings. The ideal time to capture a building is just before sunset or sunrise, when the building is bathed in the suns majestic glow.

FOOD & BEVERAGE PHOTOGRAPHY
Let’s face it, everyone loves food. We work closely with the chef and a food stylist to create stunning imagery for some of  St Louis’ leading names in food. Fresh, original and with a captivating focal point that entices and engages — Bon appétit!

 

LIFESTYLE PHOTOGRAPHY
Capturing authentic looking lifestyle shots is an art form of its own. It serves an important role in business to personalize your brand, connect with customers, and enhance your business materials. We blend location, lighting and hand selected talent to create natural, relaxed real-life environments that creates a human connection and provides context to your brand.

PORTRAIT PHOTOGRAPHY
An important part of a company’s image are professional headshots of the senior executives and key team members. By including these, you’re putting a personal touch on your brand by letting your customers know that the company is made up of real people who genuinely care about their clients.

Group shots vary widely: bullet points to think through for success.
Group shots are often requested along with executive portraits and other corporate photography. While group shots are useful to show the teamwork you value, for the team-building purpose for execs that are scattered over multiple offices, and for historical documentation purposes, it is, however, harder to achieve useful and effective results without careful planning. Below are common challenges and issues that you want to think about at the level of your company’s internal discussion.
