Application Photo & Business Portrait

The importance of the first impression

Your Application Photo is part of the very first impression you are delivering in an application. Before starting to screen your eduction background, working experience and references, HR employees have a look at the overall impression of your application - including of coarse, your photograph. Hence a good reason to stand out with a professional application image.

How would you like to come across?

Your application photo should absolutly fit your desired job profil. Oftentimes an application photo is mixed up with passport photographs - which of coarse is not the same.

You will look more interessted and engaged than many other candidates with your new professional application photo. We advise and support you in this process, so together we capture the application photo that fits your desired position.

Information, tips and tricks for your Application Photo or your Business Portrait

We have some tips for you, how you can prepare perfectly for your business portrait / application photo shooting.

Preparations for an application photo or a business portrait

How can I prepare for an application photo or a business portrait?

Think about how you want to look like on the photos: Friendly, proud, trustworthy?

It is easier for us to photograph you the way you want, when we know as much as you do about your expectations.

What shall I wear for the application shooting?

For an application photo for a bank, lawyer’s office, consultig service, or a position like that, there is still the rule to wear a suit with a tie. For the women, a business costume. For an application as the new digital unit of a cosulting service, you maybe leave your tie at home :-).

For other professions, there is no specific rule what you shall wear, it is a little bit more difficult. But you should choose clothes appropriate for your desired position and the organisation you apply for. Have a look how the other employeers dress. If you can’t decide, it is always better to dress a bit more formal, than too casual.

The photo shooting

Is it possible that a professional make-up artist helps me with the styling and make-up?

Of course! We’d love to organize an appointment with a make-up artist before the shooting. Especially if you are not used to put a business make-up on, we can highly recommend it.
