I’ve photographed hundreds and hundred of professional headshots over the years both in my photography studio in Balnarring and out on location.
I reckon over 90% of professional headshots are photographed on a crisp white background.
Thats perfectly fine, it works well.
I get it, let’s keep it simple let’s keep it classic, let’s keep it business, let’s keep it corporate.
However how about a bit of colour?
Colour backgrounds can certainly grab your eye.
They can also be related to your brand.
Or they can just be fun.
Here at Daryl Gordon Photography we offer a range of coloured backgrounds for your professional headshots both lit and unlit, I won’t get into the technical stuff but the way you light a back ground can change its colour drastically.
Here’s a fun fact I stumbled onto whilst preparing for this case study, the handsome man on this page is.. well it’s me, thanks Poppy Gordon for taking the photos, I’d been wanting to update my own professional headshot and thought this would be a great opportunity to showcase coloured backgrounds. So I uploaded and updated my headshot on Facebook and wow the interactions and comments that came from that one single photo was nothing short of spectacular, did I sell anything…no. Did I pop up on lots of peoples feeds..clearly, so for me it was a simple win.
To stay on peoples radar, to stay visible in my business is key.
I’ll be playing with that over the coming months, changing my headshot from time to time just to see the response I get.
So if you would like to get more traction with your social media marketing or just jump off the page with a pop of colour, then spend a little more time in our studio and get a library of different professional headshots on different coloured backgrounds so that you can swap them in and out. I think it’s a winner. It’ll certainly had a bit of fun to your shoot and your photos.
Of course we can still get that professional headshot on a crisp white background we get also add a bit of colour and fun to your headshot as well.
Another fun fact : we charge per hour not per headshot plenty of business owners bring a friend to split the cost a few people in the studio can bring some extra energy and fun to your shoot as well.
