Business portrait

Photography in the studio and on-location.

In my studio, conveniently located in Amsterdam Center East, I offer tailor-made portraits for independent business owners, freelancers, job seekers, artists, and everyone who needs a representative picture of themselves. I also work on-site at your office or a favorite location. Feel free to get in touch so we can talk about your ideas and the possibilities. My name is Adrienne Norman and I would love to make your portrait!

About and pricing

As a portrait photographer with more than fifteen years of experience, I work with people who feel at ease in front of the camera and the camera shy. By making real contact during a portrait session, we work together to create images that show who you are, what you stand for, and what you want others to see. You may want a polished business style portrait to complement your professional pages or a picture that shows your more personal side - or both.

To make a series of portraits so that you have enough images to choose from, I need a minimum of 45 minutes with you in the studio. Compare the packages below to get an idea of what a portrait session entails and what works best for you.
Looking for something different than included in the below pricing, let me know what you need, and I will send you a personalized price quote.

Basic head-shot portrait session

Sometimes just one good portrait is enough to freshen up your about me pages, website, and social media pages. This portrait session is perfect for people who need a straightforward yet eye-catching picture for use on their business and about me pages. As the term ‘head-shot’ implies, we concentrate mainly on head and shoulder portraits.

How it works

The following is a guideline for creating a successful portrait session at Studio7n.

  • Before the session we have already had contact and talked about what you are looking for.
  • Based on our conversation you choose which portrait package you want use.
  • When you arrive at my studio we first sit down over a cup of coffee or tea and make acquaintance with one another.
  • At the beginning of the portrait session I make a series of test photos while looking for the best light.
  • During the session I give you tips and coaching on how to relax in front of the camera and just be yourself.
  • In between we take a few short breaks to view the images so you can see what we have made.
  • Let me know what you do and don't like. The more I know the better we can work together!
  • The more comfortable you are in front of the camera, the more ideas you will have about how you want to be portrayed.
  • After the session you receive an online slide show with an ample selection of your best portraits.
  • From here you choose which photo's you want to use.

FAQs

My mission as a photographer is to show you that having your portrait made by a professional photographer is a pleasant and painless experience. To take full advantage of your portrait session, do read the tips below. Of equal importance is that you come to the studio well rested and ready to expect well-made portraits that you can use with confidence.

What to wear

First of all, I don’t have any specific preferences about what you wear as long as you are comfortable and your clothes are wrinkle-free before we start photographing. I do, however, have a few ‘favorite things’ and tips that will help make your session more comfortable and polished while still focusing on what makes you, you.

Necklines and sleeves

When choosing a shirt or dress, consider the neckline. Avoid a big turtleneck or collars that are either too tight or loose. V-necks are flattering, but take care with cleavage-revealing tops. For men: if you wear a tie, it needs to be neatly tied and well fitted.
I prefer shirts and dresses that have long sleeves. Too much skin can be a distraction from your face in a portrait.

Accessories

I love jewelry, and if you usually wear it, definitely wear it. Large necklaces and earrings can be distracting, so I do recommend smaller pieces. However, if you are known for your big and bold jewelry, wear it!
As for glasses, if you wear them, you should keep them on for your portrait. It’s a part of who you are.
Anti-glare glass is preferable, but I can usually work around the non-glare glass to eliminate most glare.
Photochromic eyewear is not suitable as the studio lamps will darken them and hide your eyes.
Tip: if you want a few portraits without glasses, make sure not to wear them at least one hour before the session.

Color

Colors that compliment your skin and hair tones are best.
In general, I don’t recommend bright colors and prints as they can appear too busy in a portrait and take control of the image, but if this fits your personal style, please wear them!

Hair and makeup

If you are planning on having your hair cut, make sure you have it done at least ten days before the photo session! A new hairstyle needs time to settle and look natural. If you wear makeup, bring your products to the photo session. The general rule of thumb is to apply your makeup with a slightly more heavy hand than usual, the emphasis being on 'slightly.'

In conclusion

I want you to feel at ease and as much like yourself as possible during the portrait session. These are my suggestions only – I trust my clients to choose outfits that will bring out their personality and flair.
