Boston Professional Headshots
David Shopper Photography: Professional Headshots and Corporate Portraits in Boston, MA.
David Shopper is a commercial photographer specializing in professional business portraits and headshots. David’s photographs are easily recognized. They feature squared-away executives who are comfortable and empowered.
David’s prides himself in the way he presents businessmen and businesswomen. There’s a great comfort level that’s easily seen. The men and women he photographs are groomed and their clothing falls properly.
Even when David’s headshots have a casual feel, everything is in the right place. What this does is say to the viewer: “I’m a professional and I care about the details.” This is important when it comes to how a company presents itself. No business wants to appear sloppy or careless.
About half the time the companies David works with spring for a makeup artist. We don’t call them that, though. We call them groomers. Many executive men balk at makeup for their professional Boston headshots, but they’re cool with having a groomer apply some powder. And it does make a big difference. Execs look healthier. More presentable. The funny thing is: they usually keep it on for the rest of the day after the portrait shoot.
This photograph was taken for the Cambridge, MA bioscience company Selecta Bioscience. David took professional headshots of the leadership team for their about-us page of Selecta’s website. Selecta has a large atrium just outside their offices which gets beautiful natural light, and we shot there.
The background in this headshot is the inside of the atrium It’s not distracting because it is out of focus and soft. It gives a good sense of structure and depth. How do we achieve this feeling of sharpness and depth in our professional headshots? By using a top of the line Nikon portrait lens. David usually shoots at f2.8, which throws the background out of focus. But the lens is very sharp on the eyes and mouth, so they pop. It’s a look that’s casual enough to be approachable but sharp enough to be professional.
