Business Portraits

I have been a professional photographer serving Palo Alto and the San Francisco Bay Area since 1993. Recently, a client came in looking for business portraits but found me through a search for headshots online. The term “business portraits” is no longer common, and “headshots” is the preferred term now.

Film Cameras

Before digital photography, business portraits were taken using film. After a photoshoot, photographers processed the film and ordered proof photos, which were ready in about a week. The client then chose a photo for retouching, which took another week to 10 days. In total, receiving business portraits would take about a month.

Business Websites

In the late 1990s, businesses started needing online business portraits, leading to a rise in demand. Digital cameras were not common, so we had to send film to be scanned. Computers were slow, taking 45 minutes to open an 18 MB photo, and editing software was basic. I began retouching digitally in 1993 with Photoshop version 2.

Digital Cameras

Because of the poor quality of the early digital cameras, I continued to use my Hasselblad for business portraits. Later, in the early 2000’s I started using a Canon D30 camera which made delivery of headshots faster. It was around 2003 when I first purchased my first digital camera. Since then I have upgraded to many different cameras. Now I can deliver retouched headshots to my clients at the end of their session usually within an hour.
