Studio7n portrait studio

Creative business photography for professionals.

About

In my studio, conveniently located in Amsterdam Center East, I offer tailor-made portrait sessions for professionals. I work for business owners, freelancers, job seekers, artists, and everyone who needs a representative photo of themselves.

As an experienced photographer, I work with people who feel at ease while being photographed and the more camera shy. By making actual contact during a photo session, we work together to create images that show who you are, what you stand for, and what you want others to see.

Are you looking for a polished business portrait to complement your professional social media pages or a photo that shows your more personal side? Or a combination of both?

My name is Adrienne Norman, and I would love to make your portrait!

How it works

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

  • Before the portrait session - We talk about your expectations and the possibilities via e-mail or phone. Based on our chat, you choose the portrait package you want to use. My packages usually fulfill the requirements of most clients, but if you need something different, please don't hesitate to let me know.
  • At the beginning of the session - I make a series of test photos while looking for the best light and camera angles: This gives you time to get used to being photographed and, to me, your photographer.
  • During the session - I give you tips and coaching to relax in front of the camera and just be yourself.  We take a few short breaks to view the images. Let me know what you like and dislike. The more I know, the better we can work together.
  • After the session - Within three working days, you receive an online gallery with an ample selection of your best portraits - from here, you choose the picture(s) you want to use.
  • The final product - Portraits that you will be confident about sharing on your website and professional pages. Your photographs are perfectly edited for color and contrast and lightly retouched for a natural look, delivered within three to five working days as digital Jpg files in a high resolution for print work (15x21cm) and low resolution for the internet. The photos are royalty-free for your personal and company use.

FAQ'S business portrait

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.

More importantly, come to the studio well rested and ready to expect well-made portraits that you can use with confidence.

What to wear
Firstly, 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.
However, I have a few ‘favorite things’ and tips to help make your session more comfortable and polished while still focusing on what makes you, you.

Necklines and sleeves
I prefer shirts and dresses that have long or 3/4 length sleeves. Too much skin can be a distraction from your face in a portrait.
When choosing a shirt or dress, consider the neckline. Avoid an oversized turtleneck or collars that are either too tight or loose. Consider layering; bring your favorite tops and jackets. If you wear a tie, it needs to be
neatly tied and well fitted.

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!

Eyeglasses
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 style, please wear them! 

Hair and grooming.
If you plan on having your hair cut, make sure to have it done at least ten days before the photo session! A new cut needs time to settle and look natural.

The same applies to all forms of grooming, from facials to eyebrow shaping. For best results, have it done at least a week before the portraits session. 

For guys who want a clean-shaven look, for best results, shave your face 24hrs before the session or the night before. 

Makeup
If you wear light makeup, the general rule of thumb is to apply your makeup with a slightly more heavy hand than usual, emphasizing ‘slightly.’
If you are known for your distinct style of makeup, come as you are! If you don’t wear makeup at all, I might apply a light powder to prevent shine.

In conclusion
I want you to feel at ease and as much as 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.
