Adding Headshots of the Eugene Office for Western Partitions, Inc.

Reviewers and Participants

New Headshots for the Leadership Team at the Eugene Office of Wester Partitions, Inc. (WPI Builds)

We created new headshots for the leadership team of WPI’s Eugene office using a two light set up. We photographed on-site at the client’s office during work hours to provide accessibility and ease for each team member.

To match the headshots we made for the WPI Builds at their Portland office we used the same lighting set up and a neutral gray or white background on-site at their Eugene office.

We used a conference room wall to make these headshots and the same two light set up we used in the Portland office. The light source was a 3 ft octabank modifier on a Profoto B10 strobe head, our second Profoto B10 strobe head was used to light the background. We had the same modifier bounce cards in the same place to match the headshots we already made. Once the client made the selections we mad the background colors all match.

Using these lighting technique and set up allows the client to onboard new hires with headshots that will match every time.

On-site set ups require no additional cost.

How to Get New Hire Headshots that Match

Adding New Hire Headshots to Your Team

Having updated or new hire headshots that match allows for the headshots on the website to look consistent as if they were all photographed at the same time. This allows for companies to onboard without the stress of making an old headshot work.

Some Tips on getting Headshots that Match

Ways to use the same background

  • Plan to use the same location as previous headshots either in-studio or outdoors.
  • Have all headshots have the same textures or colored backgrounds.

Ways to use the same lighting

  • Use the same type of light source, either natural light or strobe flash photography. Visit our post about the two types of light.
  • Have the light source coming from the same direction as the previous headshots.

Things to consider

  • Coach employees on poses and facial expressions if your company brand is specific.
  • Coach employees on what to wear. In some cases, companies will require professional attire or casual, this will depend on the brand and services of each client.
  • Here are Erica J Mitchell Photographer we offer a 10% off to returning clients.

Other way to ensure new headshots match the rest of your company photos

One option we offer is for the client to order solid colored backgrounds retouched to each headshot. If there is already an established background, for example medium gray, the next new hires will get the same background color.

Are some previous headshots cropped funny or too warm or too cool toned compared to the other headshots? We offer to color match previous headshots to match new ones!

For additional questions about headshots and photography sessions, visit our FAQ or view our guide to preparing for your headshot session.

Case Studies

Below are some examples of our returning clients that have added new hires to their team over several sessions. In most cases, the location is the same and the lighting is the same.

View our client case studies below

  • GridStor (in-studio using natural light)
  • Housing Development Center (outdoors)
  • Klosh Group (outdoors)
  • Virginia Garcia Memorial Health Center (in-studio with flash)

GridStor

For GridStor, we used the Natural Light Studio with window light as the main source of light since the beginning when they were only 4 employees, now over 30!

Matching their new hire headshots to their existing team is paramont in the professional presentation of their company. We use the same light source, angle of light, background, camera lens, crop and delivery to provide headshots that match on their website.

This set up provides us consistent headshots for GridStor every time allowing for future sessions of new hires to blend seamlessly. The result are well balance headshot photos the illuminate each person that projects confidence, professionalism and friendliness.

“We strategically site battery storage projects to place electricity from renewable resources, like wind and solar, near where demand is greatest. This helps build a more resilient grid in the face of threats posed by climate change and severe weather.” Website

Housing Development Center

We used the same location located on East Burnside to create the team headshots for Portland’s Housing Development Center.

For this on location session we used the urban environment of the client’s office space as the backdrop and used the available daylight coming through the buildings and street as the main source of light.

In addition to bounce and flag cards, we manipulated the light with the positioning of the subjects. The closer the subject to the shadow line of the light source the greater the diffused light that impacts the skin. By placing the subject next to a building with the direction of the light source (daylight) we were able to achieve a reduction of light to the top of the head and add dimension to the face with shadows.

“HDC is a nonprofit consulting group that works with mission-driven organizations to create and sustain affordable homes and human-service facilities.“ Website

Klosh Group

We used the Beaverton Library as the outdoor background for their portraits. Outdoor headshots can be tricky this time of year as the leaves are falling and the rain is more frequent. We schedule multiple dates if possible ahead of time to have options in case of less than ideal weather conditions. 

Each new hire has a horizontal headshot (by request, most headshots are photographed vertical), two 8×10 crop options and one square crop option to use in two file formats, Print and Large Web for easy use.

“Klosh Group is a consulting firm delivering owner’s representation, project, and construction management services. Providing client- and community-centric services and successful construction management results to the Pacific Northwest since 2016.” Website

Virginia Garcia Memorial Health Center

We worked in our studio to provide a consistant type of setting for future hires. We used artificial strobe lighting to match previously done headshots!

The location and lighting set up was what brought all these headshots together to look cohesive and match existing headshots already on the website by a previous photographer. The headshots featured in this blog post are from four separate sessions.

View our previous work with Virginia Garcia Memorial Health Center here.

“The Mission of the Virginia Garcia Memorial Health Center and the mission of the Virginia Garcia Memorial Foundation are tightly connected. The health center serves the members of Washington and Yamhill county through access to high quality, culturally appropriate health care and the Foundation works to provide the enduring support for the entire organization.” Website

For companies that are growing and hiring staff, consistent looking company headshots is key to a website presentation and the professionalism of your business.

New Headshots for the American Red Cross Cascades Region

Reviewers and Participants

New Headshots for the Leadership Team at the American Red Cross Cascades Region

We created new headshots for the leadership team of American Red Cross Cascades Region using a single light set up. We photographed on-site at the client’s office during their retreat for the Oregon and Southwest Washington chapters. This provided easy coordination and access to the headshot session for those traveling from out of town for the retreat.

The single light set up included a 7ft umbrella, a Profoto B10 strobe head and a bounce card opposite the strobe to fill the shadows.

On-site set ups require no additional cost.
