Head Shots

Personal Branding and Head Shots

Trust me when I say no one loves getting their head shots taken. You feel awkward, unsure of what to wear and just plain self-conscious. This gallery showcases a variety of professional head shots around Denver. I photograph professionals on location, meaning we can do your portraits at your office, around your building, outside at a park or somewhere else of your choice. Many people like to freshen up their web sites with lifestyle portraits and head shot photos of them at work. I photograph you in flattering light and in flattering angles so that we get good, quality images of you that are creative and professional.

Where to Take Head Shots in Denver

I use natural backgrounds – a brick wall, a plain colored wall, a cool texture, or I just blur out the background. Generally I use natural light, either outside or window light. I am also able to bring in studio lights. Many artists, restaurateurs, lawyers, doctors, realtors and other creatives have used my head shot photography to showcase their businesses. I try to make each person who stands in front of my camera comfortable. I want to create a timeless portrait of them that they are proud to showcase.

What to Wear For Head Shots In Denver

Each session is either 15 or 45 minutes long. One digital file is included with the shoot, which is chosen from 15-20 images. Additional files are available for purchase. I will help place you in a number of poses, but I also want you to do what feels natural and comfortable. Many people ask what to wear for head shot portraits. I recommend wearing a bright color. Black works as well, but I would stay away from solid white shirts. Accessories like jewelry, hats and low slung scarves are great.
I would stay away from large scarves, turtlenecks, tank tops and really wild patterns. Herringbone also doesn’t translate well in photos. Some women choose to get their makeup and/or hair professionally done. It helps boost confidence and obviously doesn’t hurt to look great in your portraits.

People often ask for recommendations on where to shoot their portraits. Some of my favorite locations for outdoor head shots are: downtown Denver near the Convention Center, Civic Center Park and Cheeseman Park.

I love creating photography for Denver business professionals and their websites. Creative lifestyle portraits are a definite boost to any website, LinkedIn page, online dating account or social media page. I’d love to talk to you about your next Denver portrait session!

Personal Branding Portraits in Denver

Personal branding should exude your personality, the character of your company and really showcase who you are. It is different from a head shot session for a number of reasons.

A personal branding photo session is 45 minutes long. We do a variety of in studio and outside portraits. I’ll put you in different poses – ask you to walk, sit, even spin. It’s definitely different from a traditional head shot where I focus on an up-close portrait of your face. Personal branding sessions are more environmental portraits.

You have the opportunity to change clothes for different looks on your website and social media. Our goal is to give you several options to use for the next 6-12 months with your business. We want to show various sides of you and your business.
