Preparing For the Business Portrait
Thank you for choosing SMHerrick Photography for your Business Portrait. Below you will be asked several questions that will assist in creating a Business Portrait that helps define your Brand. Remember, the more time you invest here, the harder your portrait will work for you.
Business or Company Name
Where will your Business Portraits be displayed?
We are going to build off of this question. Please check all that apply.
Other Social Media
On the Wall
Let's talk about the emotion of your Portrait.
Think of this as a message conveyed visually. An extreme example: Open arms and a large smile might convey that you are about to give someone a hug or that you are embracing. Please check all that apply.
Happy and Jovial
Executive / Authoritative
Please Define your Profession.
Be wordy here. Professional Photographer is vague. I am a Professional Photographer who specializes in Portraiture. My central focuses are Business Professionals, Weddings, Family and High School Seniors. I do shoot Architectural and Design, but tend to stay away from event coverage such as company picnics. (This states exactly what I do and do not do.)
Do you know what a Keyword for your profession is?
Keywords are words or small phrases that search engines, such as Google, use to present information.
List some keywords.
If I were to Google your Profession, what are common search phrases that will help me find you or your competition.
Do we want Studio or Location?
Please select from the following.
When working in studio we have complete control over lighting and mood. We can integrate props or even shoot against a Green Screen and fill in the background later. No pressure on these. Check any that may apply. If uncertain, do not worry about it.

Simple Lighting/Clean Flattering
Location shoots can really help emphasis your Brand. They can also be a matter of convenience. Please select from the following.
A Specific Location
Let's be Creative
Where do you have in mind and why?
Please take a moment to describe your vision. Tell me why you feel this is important to your Business Portrait. No right or wrong answer here.
That is a terrific start.
Let's wrap this up.
Do you have time for a just a few more?
These final questions are about fine tuning. If you have a couple more minutes, please look through them.
Do you have a website I can view?
If yes, please enter the web address below.
Have you seen a Business Portrait you really like?
Is there a point of reference I can see? On the web, a magazine.
Wardrobe is important. Do you need or want Professional advice or suggestions? I can put you in touch with some great Wardrobe Stylists.
Makeup Artists are wonderful to have around, for men and women. Photoshop can do wonders. But a Makeup Artist can help you look your best without using the pancake brush. Would you like me to put you in touch with one?
Aside from giving us something to talk about during the shoot, letting me know about some of your interests will help me help you during the shoot. A lot can be derived from interests. Books versus movies. Participating in sports versus spectating. Be as specific as you like. Not points lost for skipping it either.
