What is a Professional portrait?

A professional portrait is a photo taken by a professional photographer, typically in a stylized environment such as an office space, in a store or shop or against a solid or textured background. A portrait can vary between close-ups to full body with you sometimes being posed in a stylized manner. A portrait is intended to tell a bigger story of who you are and your personality or interest. This can be done by adding props that better showcase an interest or aspect of your life/business. For example, if you are a pianist your portrait would most likely have a piano being used as a staging or prop element to reinforce your tie to playing the piano.

"Very high quality pictures. We were very pleased!"

How is a Portrait different from a HEADSHOT?

There are a few key differences between a headshot and a portrait. Unlike a headshot, a portrait can be more environmental in the setting such as sitting in a library, at a desk, in your kitchen, garage, or any space that helps tell the story of who you are. Portraits can also provide more visual room around the person and could be full length of the person. Portrait can be more intensive for the photographer and crew to light and prep. Depending on a few factors a portrait session can be super quick or take a few hours to shoot. Portraits are also usually viewed as artwork and can be hung in your home or office. Given these variables portraits are typically a step up over headshots.
