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.
