You need a headshot for FIVE reasons:

1. CAREER GROWTH

Making a strong first impression at an interview is important, but many individuals are unaware that that initial impression likely occurred online. You'll stand out among recruiters who scour social media.

No matter where you are in your profession, networking is critical. Your professional network can help you land a new job, a speaking engagement, or a consulting gig.

As a networking must-have, a professional headshot is memorable and helps you stand out from the crowd. You should also include a headshot on your business card so that you are remembered every time you network and hand one out.

You'll respect yourself and others. A great headshot makes you feel good about your personal brand and what other professionals think of you when they view your photograph.

A high-quality headshot helps you appear the part whether you're just starting or navigating the C-suite.

4. PROFESSIONALISM
Regardless of the sort of service or product your business provides, you want your audience to see you as professional.

Professionalism encourages clients to place their faith in your knowledge, follow your recommendations, and generally desire to do business with your firm.

Headshots taken by a skilled, professional photographer demonstrate your organization's commitment to your brand and the task at hand.

If you present yourself professionally, prospective clients and even future employees will be more inclined to interact with your firm and place their faith in your skills from the first encounter.

 

5. PERSONALITY
Headshots are an excellent way to convey the personality of your team and your organization in general. You want your team's headshots to reflect the professional image you want your business to project.

If your company is a legal firm, your employees may choose to dress in suits and present themselves as pleasant yet experienced. If you operate a restaurant, you may want to try photographing the cooks on-location.

A skilled professional photographer will be able to advise your team in selecting the ideal postures, clothes, and backdrop to correctly represent your brand and provide a welcome experience for your website's visitors.

The fact that so many people are using modern headshots to promote themselves these days means that having a professional take your portrait is going to help you promote yourself in the most professional way possible.

What should I wear for a corporate headshot? 

For men, we recommend a medium to a dark suit jacket, or if you are not wearing a jacket, you should wear a shirt color other than white, if you need a headshot against a white background. 

For women, long story short, we recommend a top with a simple neckline (scoop neck works well) with minimal jewelry.

Here our blog about 5 tips on what women should wear for a headshot

Noor  Noor_headshotNoor_headshot I decided last minute on taking business photo headshots. The photographer offered me an availability within two hours. When I arrived, he was quick at adding suggestions on straightening my suit to avoid wrinkles in the image and recommended background colors I highly recommend if you're looking for a great business headshot!

Georges_headshotGeorges_headshot I had my acting headshots done here In Palo Alto. It was a breeze booking a session and the location was easy to fine. The 30 minutes went by fast because the photographer is very efficient.

Jay  Studio_headshot_Portrait_terrificshot-9Studio_headshot_Portrait_terrificshot-9 I got my first headshots taken with TerrificShot. The photographer gave me easy to follow instructions to hold my shape and the photos turned out great! Would totally recommend! Mina  mina_headshotmina_headshot The photographer is the most responsible and professional photographer I've met so far. TerrificShot Studio helped me with my headshot session, during which we patiently figured out the best angle and position to shoot making sure the results look perfect. The photographeris also super efficient and completed the polishing and sent the photos to me only 3 hours after the shoot. I highly recommend TerrificShot if you want the quick and high-quality headshot.

Shilpa  Studio_headshot_Portrait_terrificshot-10Studio_headshot_Portrait_terrificshot-10 I had professional photos taken for online use. I got an appointment date without having to wait for too long. The photographer’s experience and professionalism was exceptional. His friendly and relaxed manner put me at ease. He took dozens of photographs with different backgrounds and from different angles. I am very happy with the experience and highly recommended Terrific Shot photography.

Philip

Philip_headshotPhilip_headshot For someone who is awkward with taking photos, The photographer was exactly who I needed to make this process painless and in fact enjoyable! He was great with guiding you with the posing, attentive to listen to your preference, and provided feedbacks on photo selection. Not to mention how fast he is with the turnaround time for edited photo. I paid for a corporate professional headshot for 30 mins and it was worth every penny. Thank you TerrificShot!

Laura

key point Corporate headshot Womankey point Corporate headshot Woman Well organized and easy to book, both in studio and at our Palo Alto  office. The photographer was on time, professional, and really easy and fun to work with. The photographer had photo gallery link for us later on the same day, and edited pictures were ready just two days later. Actually, we loved most of the pictures, so ended up buying the whole gallery anyways. Already bragged about the photo session and had a slide show with our friends.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

how much does it cost to get a professional headshot?

The price of our headshot photography can vary greatly based on how you use it (personal versus corporate). We do offer affordable prices for LinkedIn package.  
 

what to wear professional headshot?

For men, we recommend a medium to a dark suit jacket, or if you are not wearing a jacket, you should wear a shirt color other than white, if you need a headshot against a white background. For women, long story short, we recommend a top with a simple neckline (scoop neck works well) with minimal jewelry.
 

What if I'm NOT a photogenic person? 

We heard this comment very often.  We will help you during the session just to be YOURSELF! When you stop thinking about how you look is when you look the most attractive. 

 

How do I choose a Portrait photographer? 

Liking the photographer's work is only 50% as important as liking and TRUSTING the photographer.  There's a good chance you're not a professional model and don't know what to do in front of a camera. It is the photographer's responsibility to direct you to the shots you require. 

 

How to pose for a professional headshot?

The photographer will guide what to do in front of the camera. Having your picture taken is NOT a natural experience. During the session, we will do our best to make you feel relax. When we reach these moments is when we capture your best personality. 


Do you provide retouching? 

The most important is to get your best facial expression that emphasizes your credibility during the session. Next, all minor imperfections such as blemish, wrinkles, and so on... can be taken care of with a few clicks of a mouse under photoshop! Keep in mind, the best retouching is when you look natural in the picture.

How long will it take to get my final images?  

Right after the session, the same day, you get your photos proofing gallery via email and text for you to pick your images. Once we get your selection, it takes only ONE day. You can provide your feedback on the edited photos and we would be happy to edit more if needed. The final images will be delivered via email or download link. 

 

Call or text us at +1 (408) 475-1940 or email us to discuss your next project and we will provide you a detailed quote to fit exactly your needs. We look forward to working with you!
