Portrait Photography has been around for many years, and it has been used by professional photographers in several different ways. Portrait photography is the act of taking one’s photo in a specific setting and in a specific pose. Unlike candid photography, portrait photography is staged in a particular setting to portray the subject in a positive light for the most part.
Many people ask the question of how often should you get your portraits taken by a professional photographer? Well, there are several different answers for this depending on what you’re using the portraits for.
Family & Individual Portraits
For your own personal use, it’s not necessary to get your portraits taken every single year, but in some cases it could be beneficial. Many families enjoy sending out Holiday cards every year. Having a professional photographer take these will be better off for the quality of the photos.
Headshots for Entertainment Careers
In the professional entertainment world, having your headshots done and portraits taken is very beneficial for enhancing your career as a musician, actor/actress, artist, etc. It’s important to update these once a year, so you can go into auditions prepared. Even having your portraits taken more often than once a year can help with your digital presence.
In the business world, it’s important to have professional portraits taken of your whole staff and company every single year. This can show the growth of your business in a professional setting. If you have new employees hired during the year, you can have individual portraits done when that happens. Staying up to date with your executive portraits will allow clients and customers to get a glimpse of the personnel behind the company.
