LinkedIn, company websites, and personal portfolios always demand a great corporate headshot. Headshots make your profile look more professional. When employers search profiles on LinkedIn or any other official sites, they always get attracted to professional looking pictures of potential hires. Corporate headshots that are on a team page of a company website help provide familiarity. If you can see who is involved in a company, your clients or potential customers will be able to identify with the company. Here are a few things your photographer always wants you to know before your headshot photography.


Makeup: Do's and Don'ts?


There are many things that can be managed with a little bit of retouching before your photography session. Blemishes and wrinkles are some common problems but that can be retouched very simply.

Always bring some translucent powder with you to the shoot. A layer of it can help trick the camera into giving you flawless skin. And you won't need any extra layered makeup. Avoid products that deposit any kind of shine or sparkle.

It’s always important to create a look that mimics your everyday makeup especially if you have applied any makeup. Being natural is always better. Having a headshot that looks just the way you are is important, so only apply the necessary makeup to enhance your look.



Until your headshot has been taken keep new color and new cuts away from your schedule. Hair dye can be very vibrant on camera if you have recently done. If you’re planning to get a new cut or new color, do it at least two weeks prior to the photo shoot. Or, wait until your photo shoot gets over.

Groom yourself well, If you're having a beard. Trim the longer hairs to keep yourself looking well-groomed and professional.




Both men and women should avoid bold patterns. Headshots always convey a conservative, professional persona. For men, clothing should be classic. Suit coats in dark colors such as gray and navy. Shirts with thin stripes that are good choices instead. Choose a tie that isn’t made of a shiny material. The tie should match your suit jacket and shirt together, so choose a tie color that matches it properly.


For women, it’s also important to focus on a classic look too.

 Here’s a good list to follow:

         It’s best to choose pieces that are classic like a dark colored blazer and an off-white blouse.

        V-neck blouses look really good on most women; however it’s important to keep your cleavage covered.

        Always try to avoid turtle necks!

        Jewelry is better simple. Stud earrings and a tasteful necklace will be more than enough.
