Female business portrait: what you need to know before shooting Automatic translate
High-quality photographs in business style are necessary for every woman who is actively building a career. Photos will be useful when compiling a resume, designing a website, electronic publications and letters, and accounts on social networks. Such a portrait should not only reflect your appearance, but also give an idea of your individual business qualities: determination, confidence, ability to make responsible decisions, etc. The photo will clearly tell customers, recruiters and potential employers that this is the specialist they were looking for.
Additionally, the photographs must correspond to the specifics of your employment. The direction of work will be a key factor in choosing a wardrobe, angles, background and solving other other issues that arise during preparation for a photo shoot. When placing an order for photography, it is worth telling in general terms about the field in which you work. This will help the photographer create a truly high-quality business portrait that reveals your individual professional traits.

Preparing for a business photo shoot
To get the best result, you should take into account the specifics of the business portrait genre. The photograph is designed to focus the viewer’s attention on the person’s face, indirectly emphasizing positive personal qualities, character, and the ability to follow corporate ethics. To do this, you need to choose the right clothes, makeup and hairstyle. You can solve the issue yourself, with the help of beauty salon specialists or our professionals.
Selecting a wardrobe
There are universal recommendations regarding what clothes are preferable for a business portrait:
- a clear and expressive shoulder line – a well-fitting jacket and/or blouse will help achieve the effect;
- defined figure – choose fitted, but not tight-fitting clothes;
- a clear outline - it is created by trousers, skirts, vests, jackets, dresses made of high-quality dense fabrics.
Clothing that meets these criteria allows you to give your silhouette an expressive and toned appearance. The woman will look more collected, slender, and focused. Representatives of creative professions and specialists who work directly with clients can choose a less formal style: a loose-fitting blouse, a knitted dress, etc.
Accessories will help you create attractive but unobtrusive accents. They should be discreet, laconic, and respectable. Earrings, a watch, a neckerchief, or a simple ring will help make your look more stylish and interesting. It is advisable to avoid jewelry with bright and large stones, rhinestones, and extravagant prints.
If your wardrobe does not have enough suitable clothes, a couple of weeks before the shoot, our studio stylist is ready to organize shopping and choose an outfit that will perfectly complement your look. A more economical option may be a telephone consultation. If suitable clothing is available, it is advisable to take all options to the photo shoot. Already on site, the photographer will help you choose the most effective combinations of wardrobe items.
This will allow you to fit your appearance into existing corporate fashion trends. The image will be harmonious, at the same time not boring and not provocative. The resulting photographs will pleasantly surprise you! Help in choosing clothes is equally relevant for girls who are just starting their careers and want to be taken seriously, as well as for top professionals seeking to create an impeccable professional image.
Choosing hairstyle and makeup
Modern corporate standards around the world require extreme restraint in makeup and hair styling. Often this goes against the ideas of beauty salon specialists, whom women turn to before a business photo shoot. The result is an overly provocative image; enlarged pores, wrinkles and other skin imperfections may be visible in the photographs.
Makeup artists who have extensive experience in business photography will help you avoid this effect. Our studio employs true masters of their craft. Their services are optional, but allow you to achieve the perfect appearance in your photos. In this case, professional cosmetics are used. Only the highest quality products are used, selected individually for each client. The makeup artist will emphasize the natural beauty of the face, hide dark circles under the eyes, wrinkles, and give the face a fresher and more youthful appearance. Easy retouching of finished photos will make your look perfect.
When it comes to styling for a business photo shoot, you should not rely on lush multi-level hairstyles with an abundance of hairpins and hairspray. Hair should look well-groomed and nothing more. It is enough to give the haircut a slight volume, remove any protruding hairs, and long curls can be neatly collected. Our studio experts are ready to give your hair a neat appearance in a matter of minutes, which will save time before the photo shoot and eliminate overpayments in the beauty salon.
How to pose for a business photo shoot?
This question is one of the first to arise in the mind of every woman who decides to order a business-style shoot. Our studio specialists do not recommend intense preparation for the “X” day - the most important component of high-quality photos is a rested girl in a good mood. The photographer himself will select the most successful angles, tell you how to turn, change your facial expression, etc. The result is much better than using memorized poses and a forced smile.
Listen to the advice of the photographer, because it is trust that allows you to build communication on the set. You can review the footage together with a specialist, select the best shots in your opinion, and discuss the upcoming retouching. This is guaranteed to help avoid surprises.
