Professional business photos

Professional photos are not only requested by companies, also self-employed, small and medium-sized companies, so-called SMEs have professional pictures taken of your team and also have an increased need for photo documentation about your company.

Business photos or business portraits?

For your website, you want to photograph your employees under the “Team” or “Contact” section. All employees should adopt the same pose and stand in front of the same background. The business portraits usually go up to the chest and the outfit is often a suit and tie for men or a blazer for women. Many self-employed people also need the business portrait for their Xing or LinkedIn profile. The applications are wide, but with the purpose of representing the company.

The business photo shows you in action in the company, i.e. on the phone in your office, in a meeting or even talking to a customer. It captures a moment in time in the company. These photos could be included on the website under the “About Us” section and give the potential customer a little insight into the company. The outfit is also “business”, but here the jacket can hang on the coat hook.

My passion for professional photography extends to working on set with people to portray them professionally and achieve authentic photos. In event photography I capture moods and emotions and document the highlights also for the company history. I’ll make sure you feel comfortable during the photo shoot. The best way to do this is in a familiar atmosphere, e.g. in your own company and not in an artificial photo studio. However, there is also the possibility that I rent a location and produce new footage for you in special office spaces. A make-up artist is part of the team around the photographer and not only styles according to your wishes, but also gives further tips and supports on the set for a smooth process – thus a relaxed work and a feel-good atmosphere is guaranteed.

Combine conferences & meetings with a photo shoot

Why not combine conferences and meetings with a photo shoot? Your business clients also want to get out of their office and meet in a new environment and build new inspiration. Here it offers itself that apart from the work also the teams and individual business partners are photographed by me professionally.

The right outfit for your business photos

There is no right or wrong outfit for the business portraits. Less is more. Your suit or costume should match your job and business life, and it’s important that you feel comfortable in your own clothes as well. Suit and tie used to be the name of the game, but today we’re seeing more and more casual, unconventional outfits. However, this depends on the industry and the colors should match your company’s CI colors. Wild patterns and stripes should be avoided. Solid colors like blue, white, and gray make for the perfect look with the appropriate suit or costume.

The right pose for your business photos

Each person is unique and there is no right or wrong when it comes to attitude. We work out together which pose creates the best charisma and suits you. You should feel comfortable in your pose and a default from the photographer is not useful here. Photography is a process and during the photo shoot we often come up with different poses that we discover together. The poses should fit you and when looking at the photos you should be able to think: Yes, that’s me and that suits me.

What is the cost of a business photo shoot

Every person is different and there is no right or wrong. Together we test out which attitude achieves the best external effect and what suits you. You must also feel comfortable in your pose and a specification on the part of the photographer is not expedient here. Photography is a process and in the course of the photo shoot, a wide variety of poses emerge, which are also already apparent during the photo shoot. Certain poses should suit you, so that when you look at the photos on your PC, you can say: “Yes, that’s me and that suits me.”

What image post-processing is included in the price?

I edit and optimize all images after the shoot. This involves me color balancing on set and doing sharpness, contrast and color management with a calibrated color monitor. As a photographer, I refrain from extreme image retouching, in which the skin is processed in such a way that the person is no longer recognizable in reality. Nevertheless, I take into account customer requests for skin editing, cropping and replacing the background or eliminating cables and sockets. I already take pictures during the shooting and the setup in such a way that the pictures look authentic and professional and disturbing elements do not appear in the picture. Individual wishes and a perfect presentation of you and your company we discuss in advance and can be implemented with a special professional image retouching if desired.

Manager photos

With a strong appearance you convince your customers. CEOs and managers present the company and with professional manager photos they not only increase the visibility of their own company, but also position themselves as thought leaders and doers who steer and control the company well. A precise briefing in advance as to what is to be achieved with the manager photos, which visual language is to be used by the company, facilitates the later implementation on set for both sides. I am always available for a free initial consultation. Here we can discuss possible photo scenes and the process together and I will show you other work that fits the theme of your business. A business portrait for professional manager photos creates versatile image series. Whether with jacket or without, portraits, team photos or new photo scenes depicting the real working day, my customers always receive all images, all rights and a fast delivery of the image data as well – promised!
