A few weeks ago I had the privilege of being invited to shoot some professional business portraits for a couple Real Estate Agents, Ajay Aheer and Thanh Nguyen, from Oulahen team in Toronto. Ajay had an upcoming advertisement that was going to be sent out so he needed a new full business portrait. While I was there we decided that a few new head shots and other portraits could come in handy. Thanh, a fellow Realtor also jumped on the chance to get some new portraits taken to share on both his professional and personal social networks.
This is the Business Portrait Ajay used for his advertisement.
Business Portraits like these make a great option to use in a lot of locations such as advertisements and other printed material. They also bring a much more professional feel to both professional and personal social networks such as Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter and the many more out there. Make sure to keep your profile images updated so people know exactly what you look like, it’s makes you easily recognizable and even more approachable.
Here’s a Business Portrait of Thanh, he was a natural in front of the camera.
The portrait shoot took place in the Oulahen offices and was lucky enough to find that they already had a backdrop and some lights to help make the job a bit easier. Most of the shots took place in front of the screen so that we could easily remove the background and swap it out for whatever they needed. Ajay and Thanh were both great fun to photograph and I look forward to working with them in the future!
Here’s a few more images from the shoot. We had a little fun with some props and even got them to do “Gangnam Style” dance (I promised I wouldn’t share those ones though 🙂 ). I’d love to hear your feedback and comments on this shoot. Let me know what you think of the business portraits or maybe some fun ideas you could use when photographing a Real Estate Agent.
