Modern Headshots

The first impression you make is the most important one. As a business professional, your first impression is often your image.


Modern Headshot by Elite Images is a unique branch of business portrait that goes beyond the standard headshot. These images portray the confidence and openness you want your clients to see in a highly contemporary style of photography. We use model-style lighting techniques that lessens the appearance of wrinkles, decreases shadows on your face, and creates a thinning effect by defining your jawline. Through the direction we give, we expertly bring out the best qualities in you through contemporary posing and composition.

Want to be seen as friendly, relatable, or bold? We'll take time to connect with you and let you relax in front of the camera to capture exactly the attitude you want to portray in your marketing. In a world full of other professionals, a strong image is what sets you apart from the rest and draws in clients.


Your portrait is an investment in yourself and your potential. Take the time to make that first impression right. Your business will thank you.

It's not always easy to be in front of the camera and look natural, but the direction that Eric gives is precise and extremely helpful.
