Nothing is more important than a great first impression. Whether you’re a high ranking executive, a small business owner, an artist, musician or model your business portrait is one of the most important marketing tools you have. Whether seen on your website, business cards, LinkedIn, facebook or marketing materials it is the first encounter many of your clients will have with you.
As a Toledo portrait photographer and owner at Mary Pencheff Photography I have been photographing people for 30 years. I have the technical skill and artistic sensibility needed to create great business portraits that reflect your energy and personality while reinforcing your image as professional, approachable, trustworthy and capable. I offer studio sessions that range from a simple headshot with retouching to a session with several clothing changes and a variety of more casual 3/4 length poses. I also work with actors and models to create portfolios for agency submissions.
In addition to a client coming to my studio I regularly travel to my clients businesses and set up a “studio” in a conference room, lounge or reception area making it convenient for a whole team of professionals to have their corporate headshots made. Simple retouching is normally included once you’ve selected your favorite pose and online proofing makes selections much easier.
This month I am discussing studio portraits but environmental portraiture can be a very effective way of communicating your personality and the nature of your business. I’ll discuss that next time. Have a look at the images posted to get an idea of what’s possible. Contact me by phone 419-471-1405 or email firstname.lastname@example.org for a personal quote or to talk about your session.
