Aside from shooting executive business headshots for corporate websites here in NYC, I get tons of requests for Linked-In portraits. After all, we all need to look our best on Linked-In whatever job we have, and its a go-to for anyone curious about us.
As a New York City professional photographer, I’ve learned that the best way to get natural flattering photos of anyone is to work quickly and keep the atmosphere light. Hence, I do my best to make people feel comfortable, keep changing the poses, and doing some variations with the clothing. If there’s time, we always review the photos to see if we’ve gotten portraits that feel right.
More and more in my job as an executive portrait photographer in NYC, I’ve getting requests for more casual headshots that reveal an executive’s personality, yet remain polished and professional in presentation. While business headshots can be done a variety of ways, I’ve been enjoying taking photos like this one where we have some fun during the shoot.
Of course many law, financial and consulting firms still prefer traditional headshots which is understandable. In this case the photos are presented in vertical format with backgrounds that tie in with the firm’s website design.
More and more, clients are having me shoot headshots for Linked-In and social media. While a flattering and updated corporate portrait is so important for everyone, its even more so for social media sites.
At a recent webinar on Linked-In, I learned how easy it is to find new professional contacts. Linked-In has filtering tools to refine your searches, and you can easily find friends of friends who can help you with your job search, mentoring opportunities or peer networking.
But as the old saying goes, you can never make a second first impression. Which is why its so important to have a NYC professional photographer take updated photos of your professional staff so everyone has a flattering professional headshot portrait.
As NY City real estate continues to expand and grow into the sky, one thing I always enjoy thinking about is that behind every window in every building old or new… there are people living or working. There must be many millions of windows in NYC buildings, maybe even a billion! And the millions of people behind these windows have their own unique view of our wonderful city.
So when I am on assignment as a professional photographer, whether it be as a portrait photographer or as a meeting or event photographer, I always enjoying seeing the location’s view of the New York City skyline, and trying to incorporate these views into the photos.
This business portrait was taken high atop Hearst’s beautiful and amazing building on West 57th Street. The views northward of Central Park served as a perfect background for this magazine assignment. While it was a bit tricky to light the room and not get reflections on the glass, it served as a perfect setting for this executive’s photo, and I was very grateful for his hospitality and kindness throughout the shoot.
Its said that first impressions are lasting, so it makes sense to have your Linked-In or business headshot be the best it can be. Consider hiring a professional portrait photographer to help you get a nice flattering portrait, so you can put your best foot forward.
As a professional portrait photographer in NY City, I feel strongly that its always better to smile than be too serious for the simple reason that unconsciously we react positively to a smiling face. Also recommended is to wear a dark jacket because visually it contains the image and focuses the viewer’s attention on your face.
And third, decide if you want your headshot to be done in a studio with lighting and a backdrop, or if you’d like your business portrait to be taken outdoors for a more casual look. Both styles of executive headshots work well, its just a matter of which style suits you.

A portrait speaks a thousand words, so make a good first impression by posting a flattering professional headshot on your LinkedIn profile. Professional portrait photographers will photograph you from different angles, interact with you to make you feel comfortable and relaxed, and then offer a variety of shots to choose from. I always recommend wearing a dark jacket, that women wear light make-up, mascara and consider having their hair professionally done before the shoot.
Its always exciting to see your work on a magazine cover, so I’m very excited that JazzWise Magazine used my Sun Ra photo for their December 2014 cover. The portrait was originally used on the album cover on “Reflections in Blue”.
