Portrait photography ranges from family photos to corporate headshots and everything in between. Plus, many photographers handle the entire end-to-end process, including photo editing and printing. Here’s what you can expect:
Your family portrait photographer will organise your photoshoot in a location that works for you. Most families prefer a local park, urban surroundings, or backyard, but some sessions happen in studios, too. Alternatively, you could book your portrait photographer for a graduation or family event, to capture candid or group shots with all of your most important people there. Usually, outdoor sessions are best done in the early morning or late afternoon, for softer lighting. Your photographer will discuss any ideas you have so you can come up with a list of essential images you want to get out of the shoot. Most portrait sessions take around 1-2 hours, ensuring enough time to get all the photos and allow your family to settle in. After the photoshoot, your photographer will provide you with a digital copy of the raw or edited photos, depending on your preferences.
Corporate portraiture is essential for academics, entrepreneurs, executives, and lawyers who want to look professional and stand out. These photos are ideal for LinkedIn profiles, website bios, media kits, and speaker kits. Most corporate portrait photography is done via a permanent or mobile studio (which is set up in your offices). Your photographer will adjust their camera settings and lighting to suit the space. They’ll coach you (and any others being photographed) through the process to help you find the right poses and expressions. Your portrait photographer will choose a handful of high quality shots to edit for each person, and deliver these via a USB stick or online.
Most portrait photographers will carefully edit the photos before delivering them to clients. A popular editing tool for this is Adobe Lightroom. Common edits include smoothing the skin, retouching to remove blemishes, adjusting the tone, and removing backgrounds. Once the edits are done, your photographer will provide you with the edited files on a USB stick or via email. Or if you’d like them to organise printing, they’ll move onto that step.
Many photographers who specialise in portraiture are able to organise prints, too. This is a popular option for families who want a canvas display for their wall or prints to give out to other family members. Your photographer will confirm the dimensions you’d like your canvas or print to be and arrange printing with a local print shop. They’ll have this posted to you or hand deliver the prints.
