Business Or Casual

Casual headshots are among the requests we receive for headshot photography. Since some of our clients work in Palo Alto, the San Francisco Bay Area in the heart of the Silicon Valley. Particularly, they are looking for professional headshots, casual headshots, business headshots, executive headshots etc… During our initial consultation with our clients “casual headshots” is a term we hear quite often these days. All in all, companies and employees in Silicon Valley have adopted a more casual approach to business.
Why Do You Need A Headshot?
Prior to photography, I start my headshot photo sessions with some simple questions. Why do you need a headshot? What is your profession? How do you want to present yourself? For the most part, they need a new LinkedIn profile photo. Additionally, many are joining a new company and need it for the company website. Also, for the question of how they want to present themselves, the most popular answer is “approachable”. I then explain to them how we will be working together to create a natural looking casual headshot.

Does Your Headshot Reflect Your Personality?
If your photographer is able to capture your personality, it strengthens your headshot. On my website, I mention that a good headshot should reflect your strengths, you should look approachable, energetic and confident. During the choosing of their headshots, I explain that they should ask themselves, “Would you do business with this person?” I also ask them to look at their photos objectively, from the viewpoint of someone that does not know them. You have to always Show Your Best Side.
