Headshots – Different Concepts


More and more in my client work, I’m finding that people will come in for business headshots, but also want to try other portrait concepts at the same time. This is fun for me!

Recently, Frank came to the studio needing business headshots. Frank is an executive with a well-known Fortune 500 company, and so the look had to be fairly traditional and conservative. The headshot above is one of the images he’ll likely use for the company website, LinkedIn, etc.

But Frank also wanted to try some different concepts for personal use – something darker, edgier, more dramatic. He brought a couple of images he liked as pose ideas, one of a famous writer, another of a current TV star. In the picture below, I used a much harsher light and we processed the image quite differently in Photoshop.

What concepts would you like to try for your next portrait shoot? I’m ready!

Working both in the studio and on location, photographer Blake Robinson serves the Connecticut communities of Darien, New Canaan, Stamford, Norwalk, Westport and Greenwich.

    What a great juxtaposition of headshots, conveying entirely different moods, personalities.

    Nice work!
