How to Pick a Legal Headshot Photographer

Choosing the right photographer for your law firm is as important of a decision as corporate image in the legal field. It’s imperative to find the right fit for your brand. There are certain things that you should look out for when choosing a legal headshot photographer. Here are some key things to consider:

What You Should Look For

When shopping for a photographer for your law firm, you need to look for a professional with the right experience. The photographer or photography agency that you choose should have a diverse portfolio of executive headshots. There are many photographers out there that take similar photos for every law firm. It’s important to find a photographer that will give your firm a unique look that fits your branding.

How a Photography Agency Compares to a Freelance Photographer

Depending on your law firm size and your needs, you can go with a freelance photographer or a photography agency. Larger firms will benefit more from an agency compared to a freelance photographer because photoshoots for large firms are more complicated than smaller firms.

For large firms with multiple locations, it will take longer to get the final photographs in the end if a freelance photographer is used. Typically, freelancers work alone and will have to take the photographs, travel to each location and edit and retouch the photographs by themselves. Freelance photographers can also be somewhat unavailable when it comes to urgent requests because they might be on a shoot and unable to respond via phone or email.

With a photography agency, there will be a larger team to help expedite the legal photography process. Photography agencies have more than one photographer and additional team members to help with editing and retouching. Agencies typically have a process in place to make sure that the photography is all consistent throughout multiple locations, so multiple photographers can be deployed to the different locations to make the photoshoot process simple and easy for each branch.
