Its always a great time to take a new business headshot for social media and Linked-In. Here’s a recent portrait we did in Washington Square Park, using the beautiful summer light to create a warm pleasing look.

Corporate business headshots and portraits can be shot with two different approaches. One is using an indoor photo studio with umbrella lighting and a backdrop. The other, like this photograph — is an outdoor business casual photo. Which type you prefer is all about whether you want something more traditional and corporate, or a warm friendlier professional look. Both types of business portrait photography styles can be seen here:

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.
