Executive Headshot-Behind the scenes

August 25, 2017

Earlier this year, I provided a group of executives some new headshots.  I thought I'd give you an idea of what goes into producing this type of image.  It started with a schedule and signup.  Company paperwork was needed and my staff for the day was Kendall who allowed me to focus on the client.

MBP_9779MBP_9779 I usually talk to the client to put them at ease and to get to know them a little and it also gives me time to analyze their facial features.  I usually talk to them about their goals for using the image, what they want to convey with this image and how the image can help them in business.  This helps me visualize the end result. MBP_9784MBP_9784 I take few shots, reposing them gradually to where I believe we hit the mark on what looks best. MBP_9793MBP_9793 Then we review the images, which then gives the client an idea of possible changes, or actually picking the image they like best. MBP_9799MBP_9799

Then I do the editing.  Lint, flyaway hair, temporary blemishes, are removed or faded out.  People joke and ask if I can make them look 20 years younger...Yes I could, but no I won't.  I'll make you look your best, where you are now in life.  This was the final delivered image, and those that follow were a few examples from the same day.

If you're thinking about a new headshot, talk to me.  I can do Environmental Headshots (Fancy word for natural background), or a themed background.  I can do an entire staff group image.  Give me a call 512.415.2640, or send an email to michael@michaelbarkerphoto.com.  Would love a chance to discuss your needs.
