For this executive headshot portrait session the goal was to create a variety of high quality portraits of a new executive of a major New Jersey healthcare provider. The photos would be used for press releases, magazine articles, social media, etc...
We wanted to shoot a wide variety of environmental portraits around the building plus a formal headshot on a background.
With a little pre-planning we had all our photos in about 45 minutes. Everyone was very happy with the project as you can see from the huge photo on the website .
In this example of executive headshot photography Certares, a New York City investment firm, wanted environmental headshots of their staff. The goal was a series of portraits that looked similar but were not exactly the same. The executives are based throughout the world so whenever someone visited the New York office we scheduled a photo shoot. Below are examples of the headshots before they were cropped.

What to wear for your business headshot -
Wear clothes that are comfortable and that make you look great.
Clothes that are darker than your skin tone look best in photos.
It's best to avoid patterns and heavy stripes.
Keep jewelry simple - we want the attention on you, not what you are wearing.
John has photographed business headshots and environmental portraits for many leading organizations and would be honored to add your name to the list.

One more case study
A college marketing department wanted fresh executive portraits of a new dean. We discussed the overall feel and look of the photos and decided to do a series of environmental portraits. We are able to photograph a variety of portraits and headshots in a very small timeframe and allowed the dean to get back to work quickly.
Thoughts on recent corporate portrait photo shoots
One of the best aspects of shooting business portraits on location is the variety. Some days the locations are really great. This hospital in New Jersey has a wonderful colored glass wall along with a large window. All this portrait session needed was a little strobe light to fill in the shadows on the left side of the photo.
The goal of this corporate headshot photo shoot in New Brunswick was to capture both an environmental portrait and a portrait on a plain background. Instead of setting up a portable background I used a grey wall in a conference room that had beautiful light coming in through a large window. We then the moved to another area for the environmental portraits. There was nice natural light in this room also but I used an additional light to provide nice soft light on the subjects. The two locations were about 20 feet apart so each photo session was very quick and easy.
Making people comfortable is one of the most important aspects in portrait photography. This business executive had a modern, bright and clean office so I positioned him on the edge of his desk for his executive portrait. The lighting was positioned before the executive arrived so photo shoot went smoothly and everyone was happy.
This environmental business portrait worked out great since the background matched the university’s color scheme. We photographed this person in other environments around the building but the red background was the most striking.
