One of Boston’s most trusted CEO Headshots photographers, David Shopper specializes in creating distinctive CEO portraits.
David is a highly recommended professional photographer; whose CEO headshots appear in some of the largest US company’s marketing.
When we think of CEOs, we think of grey-haired men sitting on overstuffed chairs. Well, we used to think that. In today’s world, more and more talented smart men and women are running companies. As an investor, this move is embraced more fully if the young CEOs have the right look.
What should a CEO headshot look like? It should have stature and status. It should be clean and well composed. You should be able to clearly see the CEO’s eyes. The portrait should be reassuring and empowering. Pretty much just the opposite of a selfie shot with an iPhone.
The CEO headshots in this sample team page comes from Boston-based Search Fund Accelerators. This private venture adopts promising entrepreneurs and helps them find a business to run.
You’d think that would be impossible, but it’s not. Many “Ma and Pa” businesses don’t have heirs to run them, and are looking to cash out. So SFA helps the searcher buy the company and run it, as an investment.
Likewise, the CEO portrait is an investment. Having a high-quality CEO headshot is important because it establishes credibility and stature. In the example of SFA, the searcher’s headshots may be the only reference point that a targeted company has. If the headshots look amateurish, the searcher’s offers won’t be taken seriously.
I’ve been asked if corporate and CEO headshots have to be vertical (portrait orientation). They don’t. In fact, most of my professional portraits and headshots are horizontal, which leaves area on both sides of the subject to accept type or other copy. Horizontal portraits can also be cropped if necessary to fit into a vertical format.
As you see here, headshots can even be circular.
David Shopper has been creating CEO portraits for over 30 years. He is the ultimate professional. CEOs feel comfortable and outgoing during their shoots. He is respectful of their time and their image.
David’s CEO headshots have a fresh feel, but glow with integrity. David knows that companies rely heavily on executive portraits. They’re the face of the company. They show how much pride a company takes in their employees. How much vision the CEO has for the future. A great CEO headshot lets you see this successful future in the CEO’s eyes.
Can professional CEO headshots be in black and white? Yes! I find that b/w headshots convey sophistication and class. The examples on this page show how b/w headshots work together to form a branded style for the company. Their execs have a recognizable look. This is what advertising is all about.
