Creative headshots can be an asset for creatives like photographers, filmmakers, designers or artists, but is also a great way for actors and models to keep their portfolio up to date.
With a creative headshot session, a mix of a corporate style and more informal style of portrait can be achieved, if preferred.
With this type of creative portrait shoot, your options are endless and the sky is the limit. A simple one-light studio setup, or something more complex; a natural light portrait or an environmental shoot, either inside, outside or both, are all options one can consider when thinking about the style of portrait when the function of it is considered.
Petra’s creative headshots were done using a mobile studio setup and a mix of natural light and flash.
Professional make-up is another extremely important factor when considering creative headshots. Professional make-up artists know how to bring out your best features and it is highly recommended to make use of them for this occasion.
Creative headshots are a brilliant way to not only show off the personality of your company or brand, but also to memorialise the legends that built the company. In a sense, they can serve as a way to document the life and work of someone, apart from ticking all the other boxes for this style of portrait.
