One of the challenges of having multiple locations for your business is having professional head shots and portraits that look the same regardless of where they were done. There are a couple of ways that you can make this happen.
Photograph your headshots all at once
This is probably most popular with companies that are very large and spread out across multiple states. If you have a sales conference or retreat for your staff, bring in a professional head shot photographer and have them photograph everyone. Usually, these events include some sort of formal occasion and that’s a perfect chance to get everyone looking their best. Or, if your desire is for something more casual and fitting with actual day-to-day operation, just do them in the morning before meetings begin… or during lunchtime. A good head shot photographer should be able to do hundreds of people a day. I’ve set up at national conventions and photographed huge numbers of people very quickly and it negates the need for scheduling.
Send employees to a central studio
If you have multiple offices in the same city, pick a good studio and send everyone there. You’ll always have consistent head shots that way. It also is usually less expensive than option #3:
Use a location head shot photographer who can be consistent
This is the hardest to do but works great provided you get a good location head shot photographer. What does that mean? Well, it means that you need someone who can go into any office and do head shots that will match the ones done in every other location. Not only do they need to be able to match their own work, they also need to be able to match someone else’s. I frequently am given a head shot done by another photographer and told to match it. It can be daunting but a good photographer can pull it off. Often it means changing the background to match what was previously done.
This enables you to get consistent results at multiple locations. These head shots were done in 4 different locations on 2 different days!
Regardless of what method works best for you, be sure that you get a good, reputable head shot photographer in the Tampa area if you want quality, professional head shots. You’ll be glad you did when you see the results.
