How to Create the Perfect Band Photo
We strive to create the look that a band is looking for. Once we have booked a band for a professional photo session we have a consultation. The consultation helps us understand who the band is and the look and feel they want to create. We need to understand the genre of music, the persona and the style of the band.
We often start our consultation with the question, “What are you looking for in your band photography?”. We also instruct them to send us inspirational images. If a band does not have inspirational images, we ask them to send us images they don’t like. Though this sounds strange, it still helps us with a vision of what they like and don’t like. We then proceed on a setting. Will the band photo shoot take place indoors or outdoors. Do we need to rent a venue, or can we produce the look they want in our studio? What type of professional photographic lighting should we use to create the perfect band photo?
These are all things that we have to consider as a photographer when we are working with a band. Bands are artistic and generally know who they are. They want to make sure that their brand matches their photos.

Getting Ready for Your Head Shot Session
Before heading in to the studio think about all of the things that make up your personal brand and what you want others to take away from a glance at your profile page. Jot down some key words and phrases and bring them to your shoot. Think about what exemplifies your personal brand to you. Are you a chef? An educator? A writer? Are there props that could help tell your story? Bring them along!
We can take a couple different shots—in different outfits—so you’ll have a series to choose from. You may want to tailor your profile picture based on the social media platform you’re using. Remember to have fun! A relaxed, comfortable subject naturally exudes confidence.
What to Wear to Your Head Shot Session
It’s important that your look matches the image you’re trying to convey. For your profession head shots, what you wear on a daily basis is a great place to start. Solid colors are always a good choice, as are tops with strong collars and necklines. Even though you’ll only be shot from the shoulders up, it’s important you’re pulled together from head to toe—you may want a shot or two that are pulled back a bit. Aim for clothes that complement your skin and eye tones.
What to Wear:
• Wear clothes that are comfortable and that make you look great
• Make sure your jacket and shirt fit you well. A poor fitting jacket or shirt will be obvious in the photos (especially around the neck)
• Clothes should be neatly pressed and should look new or like new
• Avoid busy patterns and large lines/stripes
What to Bring:
• Sample professional head shots to help communicate the look you want

We can shoot your corporate portraits or professional head shots with a green screen background and replace the background with anything you’d like. We do this on a per image charge basis. Our green screen photography techniques are professional, and convincing. While it’s always best to shoot in the real setting, this is the next best option, and many times, much more practical in an office setting.
