The Business Portrait

One of the essential tools in the photographer's kit is the Business Head & Shoulders portrait. The business portrait can lead to further opportunities to photograph the client's family.

Begin with a clothing consult. Advise the client to wear simple, professional clothing to the sitting.

For men, that means a light blue or off white shirt and a solid color, middle to dark tone suit jacket and a conservative neck-tie. If a man has a heavy 5 o'clock shadow, he should shave again.

Women should wear a middle to dark tone pants-suit with a light color top underneath. Makeup should not be overdone.
