Backdrops for Commercial Headshots
When it comes to traditional industries like law and finance, it’s recommended to use neutral white, gray, or black backdrops for your headshots. These colors give a clean and consistent look, conveying reliability. You can check out our headshot backgrounds page to see all the available studio options.
If you’re in creative industries, non-profits, or tech and want your photos vibrantly, you can choose a colored studio backdrop or consider an outdoor or in-office session. These photos tend to showcase more personality.
As a senior executive, entrepreneur, or thought leader, it’s essential to have multiple photos of yourself that can be used across different platforms. Ideally, having a couple of outdoor shots in addition to your studio headshots would be best.
Using the same headshot on LinkedIn, the company website and press releases may not look professional. Zen Studios LA offers various studio backdrop options to cater to your preferences and industry needs.
Ways On How To Prepare for Commercial Headshots
To ensure outstanding headshots, there are three key elements to consider beforehand. First, prioritize your well-being by getting ample sleep, exercise, and sunlight in the weeks leading up to your session. While our editing team can enhance your chosen photos, your preparation will contribute to their natural appearance.
Second, do a trial run of wearing your preferred attire a few days before the session. This ensures proper fit and allows you to address any dry cleaning needs.
Lastly, compile a list detailing your vision for the headshots. This way, your photographer can be fully prepared to assist in capturing your desired outcomes during the shoot.
For example, one of our clients wanted their photo to reflect their connection to the vibrant San Francisco community. To achieve this, we captured a shot against the backdrop of the city’s iconic streetcars.
