CEO Headshots Photographers Boston
Boston-based photographer David Shopper is one of Boston’s most trusted CEO Headshots photographers.
David shoots in Boston, NYC, and worldwide. His studio is on Boston’s North Shore, and his client make up some of the country’s largest businesses.
The CEO headshots David created for his client Search Fund Accelerators are a good example of executive portraits for the youngest corporate heads.
Who are these businessmen and businesswomen?
This is my third year photographing the new searchers for Boston’s Search Fund Accelerator (http://www.searchfundaccelerator.com/). SFA is an innovative venture: it mentors and funds a handpicked group of young entrepreneurs in their quest to find a company to acquire, manage, and grow. It’s an amazing and rare opportunity. The target company is usually family-owned and looking for an exit strategy.
Our portraits, then, are taken with the intent to portray these young men as professional, trustworthy, and approachable. The message is: “I’ll take good care of your company”.
The SFA Brand
With this photography, we present the searchers as a team, branded in the SFA visual traditions we’ve already established (see previous SFA post: https://blog.davidshopper.com/photographing-branding-startup-business/).
What makes a great CEO headshot?
First, start with a great CEO. These searchers come from amazing backgrounds. They’re Marine geospatial intelligence officers, rig drilling experts, investment bankers, world travelers, and company founders. It’s like sharing the room with a huge ball of potential energy.
It’s no accident these portraits came out as successfully as they did. To a person, the searchers were modest, earnest, and optimistic. Maybe that’s what makes a good CEO. It certainly made for a good photograph.
Can you take corporate and CEO portraits without a flash? Yes! David exclusively uses natural light for his CEO headshot photos. Natural light is flattering. Natural light is available in almost all businesses (you’d be surprised – a loading dock, say, is a great light source). Natural light allows executives to feel comfortable. No flashes, no elaborate setup.
Can a CEO Headshot be black and white? Of course! These examples show that black and white gives a classy, simple, understated look to headshots. Photographing all the corporate team portraits in b/w gives them a distinctive, branded look.
