Gabriel has developed his unique technique which is based on 3 axes:

  1. A “Headshot” composition: the headshot is a portrait photo in horizontal format, including only the subject’s face and shoulders. It is therefore a very different technique from the classic portrait, which designates a photo in vertical format taking into account the chest and stomach: elements that are however useless in identifying a person. Thus, the headshot fully plays its role of representing the subject and only focuses on the essential.
    The headshot composition is used by advertisements, the corporate world but also the world of cinema, thanks to which it is associated with beauty.
  2. A beautiful light: Thanks to a tighter composition focused on the head of the subject, Gabriel can use very precise lights to illuminate the face of the face and decrease in amplitude quickly. This technique results in a naturally high contrast photo that is eye-catching and very pleasing to the eye.
  3. Finally, expression, the most important point! Thanks to clear tips, Gabriel guides his clients on how to pose well in front of the camera, in order to release self-confidence: the key feeling for a corporate portrait. Confidence means that the person is comfortable in their own skin, they know their job and master it. Confidence is contagious and greatly appreciated by our subconscious.



1 – Composition

A classic portrait does not have a specific frame.


This is usually a vertical photo, framing the head to the waist. Other portraits include ¾ of the person, or even the whole body.


The headshot, on the other hand, offers a horizontal and much tighter frame. It only includes the head and shoulders. A wise choice: only the face can identify a person, the stomach, arms (etc.) are only a distraction.


Today, the headshot is used everywhere: websites, brochures, magazines, books, etc., although its name is still unknown to the general public.
For several years, for example, all social networks have displayed your profile picture in headshot format.


It is therefore more efficient and consistent to create a beautiful headshot, rather than working with another photo format which will ultimately be reshaped into a headshot.

2 – Light

A portrait uses the environment around the subject to create its universe.
Indeed, the photographer uses natural light to also highlight the background, behind the subject being photographed.


The headshot offers another value proposition: it is about showing the best possible version of the person’s face.


To create it, the photographer uses flashes to control the light very precisely and highlight the subject. A sober background, in a single color (gray or white), allows the face to remain the hero of the photo.

3 – Expression

Originally, the headshot was created for the world of cinema, so casting directors could select their actors.


Indeed, thanks to this technique, the expressions are put forward, offering a composition identical to that used in the seventh art.


In the professional world, the headshot allows you to communicate a strong message: that of trust. This is the key to a great photo! As an expert headshot photographer, Gabriel will share with you his tips for conveying that feeling. Depending on your role, accessibility can also be worked on.

In view of these major differences in terms of composition, light and expression, it is understandable why the headshot is attracting more and more companies for their corporate communication and marketing operations, while the portrait no longer finds its place.
