Corporate Business Headshots Is What We Do BEST


Open For Business And Fully Vaccinated


While it may be convenient to continue using the same headshot for years on end, this is not necessarily the greatest decision for your business and brand.

After all, a headshot is frequently the first impression a potential customer has of you, and you want that first impression to be a favorable one.

If that isn't incentive enough to update your headshot, consider the following seven reasons why you should make updating your professional headshot a priority this summer.

1. Present a truthful image of oneself

Your headshot should accurately portray your present age and capabilities. If a potential customer reads that you have 10 years of expertise in your industry but sees a photograph of your 22-year-old self, you may lose their trust. In this case, an outdated headshot might result in the loss of commercial prospects either directly or indirectly.

This is especially true for entrepreneurs who began their careers at a young age; without an updated professional headshot, you–and hence your business–appear to have aged indefinitely. While this may be a complement in real life, in the business world, age equals knowledge. Therefore, if you want consumers to recognize you as an expert in your area, upgrading your headshot is a critical step toward success.



TerrificShot Studio Headshots PhotographyTM will help you in developing the ideal image for you and your company. You have a business to run, so let us assist you in communicating the core of your brand to your customers.

2. A professional headshot that has been updated will appear current and polished.

Nowadays, an out-of-date headshot is especially obvious, as camera quality continues to improve dramatically.

Consider this–the profile photo you took in 2004 is almost certainly of worse quality than the one you might shoot with your iPhone today. When a visitor visits your site, the quality of the photo indicates whether or not your headshot is current.

This results in one of two outcomes for customers. They either believe your business lacks the resources necessary to update your headshots and enhance your brand, or they believe you are slothful and lack the foresight to see the value of your headshot.

In any case, it's a no-win situation. Avoid developing a poor reputation entirely by periodically updating your headshot to reflect improved camera quality.


3. Enhance your internet visibility

Each time you upload a photo of yourself to the internet, it appears when someone performs a Google search for you. Whether you agree or disagree, this is an excellent method for developing a professional brand and presence.

By updating your headshot on a regular basis, you ensure that your collection of public photos of yourself continues to grow, slowly boosting the beneficial impacts of those Google searches. This is critical for an entrepreneur! If you have founded your own business, you are a critical component of the brand. After all, your business is based on your personal objectives and choices. When people see your brand, they need to see you, and having more images of yourself out there is critical to that identification process.
Replacing your headshot is a low-risk, high-reward exercise, even more so if you are an entrepreneur. If you do these three simple actions now, you will be well on your way to establishing a more professional presence.

4. Investing in your image.

Maintaining a consistent Image (Brand) throughout all of your social media channels, website, and printed materials is crucial for establishing the Know, Like, and Trust your consumers desire.

Individuals conduct commerce with other individuals, not with businesses.

Therefore, if consumers are purchasing from you as a result of you, why would you consider your Headshot to be anything other than an investment?

While investing in a high-end Headshot may not be financially feasible at the moment, opting for a low-cost Headshot may not produce the Image that is most useful to you or your organization.

When it comes to finding the best portrait photographers, you'll want to choose someone that understands how to capture your individuality. The best headshots are those that can quickly convey who you are to others.

5. Professional Headshots Make Your Business Look Professional

A headshot is a photograph of your face. It is distinct from a portrait or a random photograph of you, which is why it has its own name.

Your headshot is an investment that will allow you to use it for professional marketing purposes.

Your headshot and its quality represent the quality of you or the service you are attempting to give, whether you are an actor or an attorney. So, how about a selfie? No. Maintain a professional demeanor. Work with a professional photographer to update and maintain your headshots as needed.

Invest in yourself because it may turn out to be the best investment you've ever made.

6. High-quality professional headshot is a worthwhile investment in yourself

You may not believe you require a professional to take your headshot, but we are going to explain why investing in a high-quality professional headshot is a worthwhile investment in yourself and your brand.

You can think of a hundred reasons why you don't want to have your headshot taken; We understand that no one enjoys being photographed, but it doesn't have to be a negative experience!

Hiring a professional photographer who is knowledgeable about their craft is critical to achieving a fantastic shot and an enjoyable experience.

Looking natural, having appropriate lighting, and expressing yourself authentically are critical components of a great headshot, and a professional should be able to guide you through the process.

As professional and experienced headshots studio photography, we can offer dress suggestions, location suggestions, hair and makeup suggestions, and can truly bring out the best "you."

While iPhones are becoming increasingly capable, there is no substitute for a grasp of proper lighting, how to position the subject, or how to bring out the best in someone's personality.

A skilled photographer understands how to retouch images so that you retain your natural appearance.

We feel that people should take advantage of retouching; a skilled retoucher can correct flyaway hairs, imperfections, whiten teeth, smooth out skin, and even help you lose ten pounds! However, I believe that a responsible headshot photographer should bring out the finest in the subject.

7. Increase your Credibility, Confidence, and Trust.

Remember the old adage, "You never get a second chance to make a first impression." This is more vital than ever in today's world.

A prospective client's first impression of you is often based on your headshot and website.

A reliable, professional, and approachable individual

Clients are reassured by your branding image that you are a leader in your sector and can be trusted.

It takes only two seconds for someone to decide whether or not to conduct business with you.

Consider headshots to be your first handshake with a potential client. In the digital sphere, they are frequently used for your profile photo and possibly your website's "About" page.

Brand photographs, on the other hand, are equivalent to having a cup of coffee with that potential buyer.

When you deal with a photographer that understands the ins and outs of brand photography, you'll get more than simply great photographs of yourself.

It is critical that your brand be consistent across all channels and materials used to present it to the public.

Your website, social media profiles, advertisements, business cards, and other marketing materials should all be consistent in appearance and feel.

Our headshots will give you the credibility you are looking for, whether you are a real estate agent, a CEO in need for a new photo for an annual report, or a lawyer that wants to get more clients.

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.







Don’t see your question here? Give us a Call at +1 (408) 475-1940 

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 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. Please give us a call and take the time to speak with us on the phone. TerrificShot Studio Photography specializes in portrait photography.


I don't know nothing about posing. Will you direct me?  That is exactly what separates us from the rest of the headshot photographers around us in Palo Alto. We believe that technical camera/lightning represents 10% of the work.  The other 90% is the photographer’s job to create an atmosphere that you feel safe and to provide guidance on 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 face expression that emphasizes your credibility during the session. Next, all minor imperfections such as blemish, wrinkles and so on... can be taken care with a few clicks of mouse under photoshop! Keep in mind, the best retouching is when you look natural in the picture. We will discuss specific editing requests concerns with you during the session.


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 in order for you to pick your images. Once we get your selection, it takes only ONE day.  In fact, you can get your final images the SAME DAY.  Of course, 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.
