‘Thinking BIG’ isn’t just limited to the board room. Why not bring this mentality into your photo shoot too? Blending business with fashion in front of the camera can help your personal brand to stay current and likeable. Not sure how to blend the two? We’ve done the hard work for you and picked apart six key ways to blend business with fashion in a corporate photo shoot.
Suited and booted
You entrepreneurs are powerful personalities and if you want to look powerful and smart on set, then the key to your styling is to bring your best suit on the day. Whether you’re male or female, you can play with power shoulders, great accessories and sleek colours to create the perfect image.
Studio settings and backdrops
One of the key ways we love to make corporate photos eye catching is to play around with strong lighting and cool studio backdrops. This can really add a lot of drama to your photos and help you transition from LinkedOUT to LinkedIN.
Don’t shy away from colour
Colour blocking is a great way to add some vibrancy into your photo shoot, stick to either one standout pop of colour or some different tones of the same shade to really make your styling speak through the photo. A little trick is to wear a top in a colour that will help to accentuate your eyes. This is why jewel tones work so well!
Make a statement with your jewellery
When you ladies need to let your clothes fall on the conservative side then why not add a bit of sparkle with your jewelry. A well-placed necklace or some statement earrings can really brighten up your face and add a cool textural dimension to a photo.
Experiment with some props
Tie your profession into your photos by playing around with some key props. If you’re a writer, a stack of old books can speak a thousand words. If you’re a chef, why not bring in some culinary tools to enhance the photos.
Wear a smile
One of the most important aspects of getting good corporate photos is to look approachable. Don’t forget to pack your smile and USE it. We know getting photos taken can be daunting but don’t we’re sure you’ll move like a natural when you’re having fun and you’re flashing your smile :)
