Technically Business Portraits and Business Head shots are not the same thing. What is the difference you may ask? To keep it simple, a Business Portrait is a picture that can showcase more than just the head of the subject. A Business Head shot is an image that shows the shoulders up. Business Portraits are used most often on websites and marketing materials. Business Headshots are used most often on business cards and social media profiles.
A great business headshot is generally well lit and shows the subject matter in focus and taking up most of the real estate of the photo. The subject may want to smile or may not want to smile. It is best to get head shots with multiple facial expressions in order to let the client choose what is best for them. When preparing for headshots, make sure your client is dressed appropriately for their position. They should be wearing a shirt that is simple, without bright colours or stripes.
