Urban Portland Business Headshots: Kris

About a month ago, I made some new business portraits for Kris. Among the options, we went for a couple urban locations for portraits in Portland’s Pearl District.

Pearl District Portland Portraits

While there are a lot of options for outdoor portraits or Portland business headshots, I often find that when it comes to a business portrait, simple is best. I’m a big fan for creativity for one’s portrait in many cases, but if we’re talking about a business portrait for traditional usage, it’s best to have something without distractions or elements that might lead the viewer astray.

Business Portraits at Your Location

When I’m working with clients, most of the business portraits and headshots in Vancouver Washington or Portland Oregon areas are done on location at the client’s office or home.

We find a time that’s convenient for you (and others, if we’re doing portraits of multiple people) and I bring backdrop(s), lighting equipment, and my camera gear. You end up with a professional portrait or headshot and you don’t have to drive across town.

If you could use an updated headshot, business portrait, or social media avatar, drop me a note or give me a call and let’s make it happen!

Refresh Your Portrait for 2014

It’s a new year!

Folks are making all sorts of plans, both personally and professionally, for 2014. As you take a look at the state of your business, it’s a good idea to consider a new portrait reflecting your current look. Especially in our online world with Facebook profiles, Twitter avatars, and LinkedIn connections, having a current professional portrait can make a great first impression.

Update Your Portrait for 2014

If you’re part of an organization, it can be quite cost-effective to have me photograph several folks in one session. Whether you’re solo or with a group, contact me and let’s ensure you have a great photo to represent yourself professionally for the coming year.

Business Portraits in a North Portland Park: Kronda

A bit over a month ago, I connected with Kronda of Karvel Digital at an event and it turned out we both had some business needs for which the other could help. I was able to use some of her web design smarts to clean things up on one of my websites, and it turned out that she needed some new portraits. As they say, the rest is history.

Portland Business Headshot - Woman

We met one evening at Arbor Lodge Park in North Portland and did a series of photos… some more formal and serious, some more light-hearted. Kronda is like many small business owners with a need for photos for her website, social media, speaking and conference engagements, and more. By providing her with four different portraits, she can choose which look she wants to portray for each of these purposes.

Nathan: Portraits of a Small Business Owner

I really enjoy working with other small- to mid-sized businesses in the Portland area. A few weeks back I was able to make a few portraits for Nathan who runs a small software business.

Portland Executive Headshot

Nathan was looking for a few images for various professional purposes. This included a traditional studio-style headshot as well as some portraits that showed off a bit of Portland. We incorporated a bit of the Portland waterfront with the iconic Steel Bridge in the background for one of the photos (shown below).

This allows Nathan to provide a serious, formal photo for those serious purposes as well as a few more relaxed images for his website, social media, or other informal occasions.
