Environmental Portraits / Headshot

All of the environmental portraits below were shot in different buildings / settings.  Some were photographed outside, some were in lobbies, and one was photographed on a stairway.  The stairway shot was fun because I photographed him walking down the staircase to get a more natural smile and body posture.

When taking environmental photographs I try use the client's office / work environment to tell something about what they do for a living, or use architectural elements of their work environment to add to the interest of the photograph.  In two of the photographs below I used the dental office lights and equipment to enhance the photographs that I took at a local dental office.  In the case of office professionals we used their lobby's lights and lines to give some interest to the photographs. 

Professional Portrait / Headshot Photography

There is something simple and elegant about a portrait with a very straigthforward background.  With Linkedin profile pictures that are the size of a postage stamp it is nice to have a professional photograph that looks professional and shows your true personality without any cluttered background.  I take these types of photographs both in my studio and on location at my client's location.

The best part of doing executive portrait / headshot photography is that I get to meet a lot of interesting people. Sometimes I get to spend 45 minutes with them, and sometimes it is only 5 minutes.  Sometimes they prefer environmental portraits, sometimes they prefer more of a studio setting with a background.  At the end of the day, they all want professional portraits that show their true personality. 

Here is a collection of portraits I took over the last couple of weeks.

Environmental Executive Portraiture | VA Photographer

Many of my clients prefer executive portraits / head-shots to be done at their location.  It saves the executive from having to take time out of their busy schedule to travel to a photography studio, and more importantly, you can get some very interesting portraits by using the client's office environment as a backdrop for the portraits.  Eye-catching environmental photographs can be created even in very simple office environments.  I have a client who is based out of Herndon, VA that I have taken over a dozen executive portraits.  With each executive I try to take the same environment and create a photograph that is different.  Here are a few portraits of a couple women executives that I photographed this last week.
