Business photography is an invaluable “first impression”
Most people will probably see you in your photo first – on Linkedin, on a corporate website, in the footer of an email, in a CV, or in a press publication.
The features that will be assigned to the person in the first contact significantly affect the perception of that person in the later stage of the relationship. It is scientifically proven, the so-called the halo effect, i.e. assigning subsequent personality traits only on the basis of this first impression.
The first impression is mainly influenced by how you look in the photo. Therefore, you are not able to impress others with your knowledge, culture or cleverness. Later. In order for you to be positively received by another person who sees you for the first time, you must first of all inspire their trust.
Business photos – what needs does the client have?
Business photos – what needs does the client have?
Before the session, it is necessary to determine what photos the client expects, what is their purpose and what image effects should their publication bring – what do we communicate?
Contrary to what can be seen very often – these should not be pictures of people offended by the world with their arms crossed.
Sometimes a site visit in your office and in the vicinity is useful to find interesting photo sets and check how natural light works, which can be a powerful ally of the photographer during the shooting.
Thanks to the mobile studio, i.e. a set of studio lamps with its own battery power supply, we can work almost anywhere.

how to prepare for the Image Session
Image in Business Photography is control of details
The perception of the person seen in the photo is completely different from the way we perceive it in reality. During a live meeting, our attention focuses on many factors at the same time – appearance, gestures, facial expressions, manner of speaking and many others.
The photo freezes a fraction of a second in the image. We see a figure standing still, so our attention is drawn to details. It is worth taking care of them so that our image is presented in the best possible way.
The tips presented below may seem too detailed, but believe us, these are the details that attract attention in the photo.
Choosing the right outfit
How to prepare for the Image Session
In business relations, it is always worth choosing elegance. Elegance, however, has many names. A different dress code applies, for example, to legal or financial circles, and different to artistic circles. You should adjust your clothes to how you would like to be perceived. Do you value classics and seriousness in your industry, or do you expect creativity and unconventional nature? We recommend that the wardrobe emphasizes the strengths of the figure.
Regardless of everything, one thing remains the same: elegance, even the more extravagant, certainly makes us seem more competent.
How to prepare for a Business Session
It is extremely important that the clothes fit well. If an item of clothing is too big or too small – it will be very visible in the photo. Underwear should not protrude or show through from under it.
In order for the outfit in the photo to look good, it should be clean and carefully ironed. We suggest bringing clothes straight from the laundry on a hanger and wearing them just before the photo session. Thanks to this, there will be no unsightly creases on the material.
Attention to detail
How to prepare for a photo session
A perfect image requires taking care of even the smallest details related to our appearance. A few of the most important points that we recommend paying attention to:
A business session usually requires elegant, classic makeup. However, photographic makeup differs in many respects from everyday makeup. Everyday makeup under studio lighting tends to be pale and sad. We highly recommend using the services of a professional who will not only emphasize the greatest advantages of beauty, but will also know what make-up to choose depending on the lighting and the type of photos taken.
Caring for eyebrows is an individual matter, some ladies regulate their eyebrows, others prefer naturalness. However, if you belong to the first group, please pay attention to it before the session, because single hairs growing beyond the ordered eyebrow line catch the eye in the photos.
Careful manicure and neat cuticles around the nails. What else to add?
Artistic disorder looks interesting live, but usually doesn’t work well in photos. A well-groomed, careful hairstyle looks much better and more professional. We also pay attention to the lack of roots in women who use hair coloring.
We strongly encourage you to perform a gentle face scrub the day before starting the session. As a result, dry skin will not be visible and the complexion will be radiant.
