Editorial Headshot in Chicago

I LOVE HOW THE IMAGES TURNED OUT

They have the exact stylized look I was going for (conservative / professional, but with an editorial edge) and I am so excited to use them going forward.

I'VE NEVER LOOKED THIS GOOD

I don’t photograph well. Seriously, I’m not photogenic and I was nervous about the headshot session. I don’t know how he did it, but Mike made me look like a celebrity.

Some companies give their team headshots as a company perk. Some businesses provide corporate headshots as a sales tool for their staff. The companies I’m most impressed by are the ones that provide their team with headshots because they understand that their employee’s are an extension of their brand. When a prospective client searches for your business on LinkedIn it’s very impressive when everyone has a great profile picture and the photography is consistently amazing. If you agree, then I’m likely the right photographer for you.

THE HEADSHOT YOU’VE ALWAYS WANTED IS ONLY A FEW CLICKS AWAY

Studio headshots are a great marketing tool, but some people benefit from something more. If you’re a C-Suite executive or a solopreneur then you’re probably one of those people. The business portraits expand on the idea of a headshot and bring in some visual context. Depending on the situation, these sessions often take place in your office or place of business.
