Corporate headshots are what we call "portraits of record", a photograph of a corporate officer that is used for reference on company websites or corporate collateral material. Portraits of record/head shots usually entail a simple setup and are driven by the need to make several clean, well lighted images of staff members in a short time span. Consequently Ed can shoot up to 30 corporate headshots in day and deliver final images within three or four days after final selections are made. We also provide basic makeup service, seamless backgrounds, on-site review of portraits, a web site gallery for review of the images, image optimization, light Photoshop touch-up of final image and delivery via FTP.
For those who are seeking more than corporate head shots in Los Angeles we provide signature portraiture that is character driven with more attention paid to branding and marketing needs of the client. Businesses that need to distinguish themselves or their leadership often want images that reflect their branding priorities while maintaining corporate conventions. Also marketing and communications directors often want photography that is consistent with the company's core values so they seek a customized approach to photography and we can meet these needs.
We provide our clients with state-of-the-art photography, skills and resources to deliver corporate potraiture on deadline, whether we are shooting a small leadership group or head shots of 20 staff members. There is a need for the efficiencies afforded by "portraits of record"; especially when many people need to be photographed, but we also collaborate with art directors and communications professionals seeking more crafted portraiture for their design projects and branding concepts.
Since Orange County and Los Angeles business community is so diverse and branding is so important in distinguishing the corporate image, we believe collaboration with a cultured photographer can help achieve that goal. For instance, an entertainment company or design firm may want editorial look rather than standard corporate headshots (portraits of record) and a law firm or financial institution might want to distinguish their leadership while observing corporate conventions. This is what we do.
Our rates are based on a the number of people and the level of production that goes into to business portraits and are competitive with photographers of equal merit in the Los Angeles market. If a client would like to see more corporate head shots or corporate portraits we can put up a larger photo gallery for review.
