Silicon Valley Executive Headshots

Executive headshots are very similar to Business Portraits done before the word headshots came into play. They are a bit more formal than headshots. Most of the time executive headshots are for employees of companies who are in management (executive) roles such as CEOs, CFOs, COOs, VPs etc… Their photos are usually used on LinkedIn, About Us page and Meet our Leadership page on company websites.
Sometimes during the consultation with clients, I hear them say “I have been working with my company for a while, it is time that I move to a higher position, that is why I need some executive headshots.” Visit Our Portfolio.
Competent And Confident

Often clients who request executive headshots tell us that they want some casual headshots as well to match their company’s branding and to show some personality. In this case, my job as the photographer is to provide headshots that stand out from others in the company. Looking competent, capable and confident is very important. I often recommend that clients who need multiple headshots allocate around 2 hours of their time for executive headshots so that I can provide them with some choices that match their roles. Here, I also ask them if their company does business in Silicon Valley only, other states and other countries so that I can take some headshots with formal attires also. Read my blog Business Portraits.
Getting your headshot to stand out and you getting noticed (from a small thumbnail photo) from other executives is a challenge your photographer has to overcome during your headshot session and not an easy one. As my headshot photography services include my time to help you choose your best headshots, we will focus on choosing the strongest portraits of you. Objective comments usually help my clients to make appropriate decisions when it comes to choosing his or her executive headshots, I frequently remind clients to ask themselves this question: Would you work with this person? A relaxed yet professional expression is usually ideal. Visit our Professional Headshots page.
Who Looks At Your headshots

Most of the time people who look at your headshots do not know you, minor details that cross your mind when you choose your headshots may become secondary. You should focus as mentioned above on looking competent. Eyes play a big role in attracting people to learn more about you. I often say, a good headshot is when I see a spark of energy in your eyes. Of course your attire, hair and some other details are important but a hesitant expression ruins it all. Collaborate with your photographer, explain what you are trying to achieve. For a fresh look attend your session when you are not tired. Maybe a morning session is what you need. We offer weekend sessions. Call us or email us to discuss and schedule your corporate headshots session.
