Tips to choosing what to wear for business portraits

It is a good idea to have a professional headshot portrait to portray a good image to the people you will be connecting with. What will you wear?

For women: Choose a nice blouse or a collared shirt, paired with a suit coat and slacks or a skirt.

For men: Wear a collared dress shirt and a suit jacket. If you want to add individual style to the photos, then consider a v-neck sweater over your dress shirt, or a tie that makes a statement.

Stay away from patterns in fabric that may detract from your face. Choose a color that is right for your skin tone. Stick to darker colors to emphasis on your eyes and smile.

Make sure your portrait sends the right message.

Picture a face with a name!

Everyone seeks to put a face with a name. It is a name with a face that communicates authenticity with your clients, colleagues, and mentors. A professional business portrait by Terry Farmer Photography will provide you with a great first impression that opens the relationship door between you and your business associates.

Approachability: Your photo should appear welcoming, to help you reach out to contacts. You can accomplish this with your appearance, your expression, and your level of comfort in from the the camera. Here are some rules to abide by:

• First and foremost: SMILE!

• Relax. Take a deep breath and look directly at the camera.

• Have your clothing choice current, fashionable, and comfortable.

• Wear your most complimentary color or the color that best represents your brand. Bright colors can attract attention, but don’t go overboard. Avoid t-shirts, Hawaiian shirts, and busy patterns.

• Use a solid, neutral-colored background. Patterns behind you in a photo can distract from YOU.

• Use good judgment with your hair and makeup. Don’t overdo it.

Ask a trusted colleague for their opinion on which photo makes you seem most approachable. Then, don’t delay in getting your new photo onto your profile.

Business portraits by Terry Farmer Photography

Smile for your business portrait to look welcoming to the type of audience you want to attract. Reasons why you may need a business portrait:

• Business profile
• Promotional materials
• Employee recognition
• Social media

Your photo should include your head and shoulders. Not a close-up of your face, or an image too far away. Professional photography can control the lighting and get the professional attention you deserve.
