Professional Headshots, Your First Impression | Professional Photographer Bend Oregon

jhg

I was recently hired by the lovely and talented Dana Ward of Lime Design to photograph her new professional headshots. In business, professional headshots are very important. They are sometimes the “first impression” when someone is looking for your service or a professional in your field. They can speak volumes about your personality, and even, the quality of your business. Of course, I am a photographer, so I may be biased as to the importance of one’s photography, but personally, I steer clear of any businessman or woman with a pixelated photo, cropped out of last year’s Hawaiian vacation.

For Dana’s headshots, we wanted to photograph her in an environmental portrait style, instead of in the studio, to add some depth and connection to her business. We chose The Loft in downtown Bend as a great location for her. She is one of Central Oregon’s premier home stagers, so having an intimate and warm atmosphere went well in defining her as a professional in her field.

What’s your field or area of expertise? Do your headshots help portray your branding and convey the image you want for your business?

Tower Theater

After being gone for so long, coming home to Bend makes me really appreciate sights and places that before I took for granted… like the Tower Theater. So, last night, I decided to stop and take a closer look and even snap a few shots for the ole’ stock portfolio.

Here’s one I liked.
