Executive Portraits of Lawyers in NY City

This lawyer portrait was taken by NY City corporate headshot photographer Teri Bloom.

Sometimes, playing it a little loose and making the photo session more spontaneous will result in a portrait that brings out people's personalities. Keeping the headshot session a little shorter also helps!

Many clients are under the assumption that it can take 1-2 hours to get "the shot". However, in our experience, its actually quite the opposite -- the best photos seem to happen in the shortest amount of time before the session gets boring. Its important to respect everyone's busy schedule, and making people feel relaxed and comfortable while we're working.

This business portrait was taken by NY City  corporate photographer Teri Bloom, who specializes in business and executive portraiture in NYC.

Its so important be aware of how the background colors affect the overall look of the portrait. Using bright primary colors either in the clothing, or in the background, is flattering for everyone and livens things up.

The colors of someone's clothing and the tones and hues of the background, have a profound effect on creating a flattering photo. As professional portrait photographers in New York for many years, we've found that clothing color as well as the tones of the background -- must be consciously addressed to create the nicest looking executive portrait. Generally, we're not fans of white or pastel clothing because it tends to wash-out skin tones. Also consider shooting outdoors on a nice day when the sun casts a golden glow and the trees give a hint of color in the background. Paying attention to these important details makes the world of difference with successful portraiture!
