New Look For Your Business Portrait

Office Environment Backgrounds

  • Modern Professional Headshots

Houston business portrait photographer, Michael Carr, offers a variety of office environment backgrounds for your business portraits here in our studio. You can come to our studio and achieve the look of an office with a view, a light and bright office setting, or even greenery. Our office environment background is the perfect option for the busy professional that works remotely or their office does not have the space for an on location session. Several companies also opt for this background option if executives work all over the US and they want a cohesive look among all the executives on the bio pages.

The office environment look is a great choice if you want your image to look different and a step above the others. You have the option for a head and shoulder, ¾ length session or a combo of the two. Many C-level executives like to have the option to change clothing or outfits when opting for a multiple look session.

Consult:
Call us to discuss which background appeals to you: classicon location or the office environment background. We will discuss the number of looks you are wanting with your session and the background you are wanting as well.

Clothing:
We will consult with you on your attire for your business portrait. A good rule of thumb is to stick to timeless and classic clothing that you feel confident in. We always recommend that clients bring with them several outfits to choose from. We can look at your wardrobe with you and select the best outfit for your portrait. Solid colored clothing is always best for a portrait. For men, you can add a pop of color with a tie or a pocket square. For the ladies a colored shell is an option with jewelry as an accent to the overall portrait. We have clothing tips on our site here. For 3/4 length portraits we recommend that you try on your clothes and make sure they fit properly before your session. If your clothes do not fit well, or if they are snug, it will show in your portrait. Make sure you are confident in the attire you select and that all clothing is pressed. For ladies, we have a nearby partner salon that can take care of your hair and makeup. Please inquire about this before your session.

After Your Session:
At the conclusion of your business portrait session, we will review all the images captured and help you with final image selections. Our studio is centrally located in The Galleria area, 77057, and between three major Houston freeways: I-10, 610, and 59. If you would like to discuss your business portrait or book your session, please call the studio at 713-461-2862  and we can help you.

Houston Corporate Business Headshots

Question: would you wear old unpolished shoes with a new untailored suit to an interview? Obviously not, on the contrary, your goal is to present yourself in the best possible way. Something to consider, your corporate online image is being viewed 24-7 by industry professionals.

In terms of professional corporate business headshots, your online corporate portrait is a form of personal branding. People look at your online bio image and this may be their first impression of you. Your corporate image needs to be polished, professional and convey the best first impression possible.

Today’s business market is competitive. So called “photographers” are flooding the industry daily. You must do your research and look at online portfolios and online reviews to see the difference for yourself. Please do not be someone’s “Test subject”. Seek a professional photographer whose specialty is portraiture. Your business online presence is far more important than just shopping around for the cheapest price.

As in the above scenario, why would you put a corporate image of yourself online with poor lighting, bad posture and no facial or clothing retouching? Do your homework before having your business portrait taken. We always recommend a consultation before your session so your clothing and image are conveyed through your image brand. Our portrait lighting is consistent in studio as well as on location. With Michael Carr’s extensive knowledge in portraiture, you will receive a facial analysis before your session so you are photographed in the correct lighting scenario to best compliment your facial features and bone structure.

Carr Portraits is a full time commercial studio with over 20 years of portraiture experience. We specialize in all forms of portraiture with an emphasis in corporate portraits. Call us today to reserve your appointment at 713-461-2862.

With a competitive real estate market and an abundance of realtors on the playing field, individual realtors need to separate themselves from the masses. Digital image and brand marketing both play a major role in today’s online presentation. From visual design and imagery to website content and visual communication, all of these topics are critical factors to consider when evaluating your online presence.

The bar has been raised from “self taken or selfie” pictures to the expectation of having a polished professional business portrait for your profile picture. The real estate market is saturated with agents so you need to ask yourself: What makes you different when there are only a few seconds of a first impression encounter?

Visual communication is critical. Marketing yourself effectively and separating yourself from others can be a quick fix. If you seek and cater to high-end clients then you must present yourself in such a manner that reflects your target market. You must evaluate your online presence and your website and insure you have a polished professional real estate headshot. Some higher end real estate agents not only have an in studio business portrait, but also have us go on location to one of their higher end listings and have us photograph an environmental business portrait as well. By doing this, realtors have a portfolio of options of business portraits for their marketing campaigns. The real estate market has its own unique style of branding. Create a business image or a brand that reflects your personality.

To discuss your business real estate headshots and options for your business portraits, call the studio at 713-461-2862. We can help you formulate your plan for your headshot images to stand out from the masses. You can view our portfolio here.
