Studio vs. Location portrait session – Editorial style ENVIRONMENTAL PORTRAITS

A professionally photographed business portrait is an important weapon in your promotional arsenal.  At the least a headshot or profile type image is a basic requirement for business professionals.  This type of portrait is typically used in sales letters, business cards and online profiles as a method to build your professional identity. Headshot photography sessions are usually conducted in the studio with the subject placed in front of a neutral background.

Consider having an environmental style portrait made in addition to the studio portrait. Environmental portraits are made at the client location which serves as the background for the portrait sitting.   Placing portrait subjects in the context of a location adds impact to business portraits. Flip through your favorite business magazine and you will see how these editorial style images present people in more dynamic and dramatic setting.

Why would you need more than a studio portrait?  Profile photos are useful for many publications; however having different styles of business portraits made allows you to capitalize on public relations opportunities as they occur.  Editors and webmasters are always seeking high quality and interesting content.  Providing an environmental portrait with your press releases and announcements will gain a higher rate of publication.

An environmental portrait adds visual information that informs the viewer about you. Photographer Dan Splaine is an expert at creating these custom portraits in locations as diverse as tropical rainforests to corporate boardrooms.  Your studio portrait is a good presentation; your environmental portrait is a complete narrative.  Let us tell your story in images book your editorial style business portrait session today.
