YOUR CORPORATE PHOTO SESSION DETAILS
Portrait and headshot photo sessions take place either in our studio in Budapest or at the company headquarters if requested.
At the beginning of the photo shoot, we choose from the clothes you brought, which ones we will use and in what order. For more details on the recommended clothing, see below.
After that, we make the makeup for women, which takes about 30 minutes. We make a natural looking make-up for our business-oriented portraits.
The special feature of our sessions is that we shoot directly to a computer, so we can review the images on a big screen. Looking at the pictures we'll discuss what settings are working for you and we continue shooting them. Along the shoot we sort out the photos that we take, so we only keep the best ones. Your final picture for corporate use will be selected during the session. If you wish you can order additional photos for personal use.
We don't give out raw or unretouched images in any form.
Retouched images are sent in digital format via a file sharing system within 10 business days of selection.
Final images are also delivered in high resolution, and lower resolution for LinkedIn / facebook and CV.
HOW YOU SHOULD PREPARE FOR THE SHOOT
Have a good night sleep the day before. Yes, we know this is the most difficult task. :)
We like plain color clothes or simple patterns. Make sure they are in the correct size, specially around the neck.
For headshots you only need to bring top clothing.
For women: blouses, blazers, tops, dresses with interesting necks, (deep cut tops and dresses are not good for headshots)
For men: stylish single-color shirts, slim jacket, tie (if company policy requires)
You should check out our portfolio on this link to get a picture of what clothes were brought by others that worked well.
Tip: In some clothing stores (eg. Zara, H & M), you have the option of returning the clothes you buy within 30 days. Buy some pretty new clothes, do not cut the tag, and you can take them back after the photoshoot.
3. MAKEUP and HAIR
The right makeup for women is essential for headshot and portrait photography. We work with a number of proven make-up artists who know well what makeup look good at studio lights. The best thing to do is to come to the shoot without makeup. If you do not feel comfortable on the street without makeup, there is no problem, we can help you wash it in the studio.
The question of hairstyle is a delicate issue for women. It is best if you come to the shoot with a hairstyle that you wear during everyday life. We recommend you schedule to go to your hairdresser right before photoshoot. Come with freshly washed hair and bring your favorite hair product that you use.
For men, no make-up is needed, small skin faults can be quickly repaired during post-production.
If the photoshoot takes place in our studio you will find information about it here.
