New Website? You Need Headshots!

I absolutely positively love my job as a Washington DC Corporate Headshot Photographer.   Every day I have multiple opportunities to spend 10, 15, sometimes 30 minutes creating business headshot for lawyers, consultants, physicians, realtors, designers, students, business executives, and lobbyist in the Washington DC area and capture a little bit of their personality using my trusty Nikon D3. Seriously, I can’t imagine a better career.

I stepped away from a career as a Development Engineer for a leading plastics company in 2000 and haven’t looked back since. The reason? I LOVE cameras. I LOVE computers, and I L-O-V-E chatting with a client just before I click the shutter for the first time. Some most people HATE sitting for the camera. Those sessions are even more fun than the others.

Having said all that…my subject here was a pleasure to work with. His assistant set-up his session 2 weeks in advance and we remained in contact throughout that time going over some of the details and making sure everything was all set for the shoot date.

The first question the client asked me was “are you the best at this?”

My response? YES I AM.

I also added in that there were a few other very good corporate photographers in Washington DC, but none were BETTER than me. I was partially joking but I was also serious. I also pride myself on being a great value. Our rates are not cheap but at the end of the day, you’ll receive a positive benefit by selecting DC Corporate Headshots to create your executive portrait.

My name is Delane Rouse. I’m a Corporate Headshot Photographer, based in Washington DC. I’m equally comfortable shooting in the studio or at your office/location. Call me to discuss how I can make you feel and LOOK like a million bucks in front of my camera.

Corporate and Business Headshot Photographer in Washington DC

We recently launched a soft roll-out of our online scheduling system and Michael was one for the first to take advantage of being able to check our availability and schedule a session completely online. He even followed he directions to the studio perfectly. Our entrance isn’t always easy to find unless you read the directions (hint hint…read the directions).

We created this updated business headshot by shooting the original image using a chroma-green background (left), then extracting the subject and placing him on a stock business background that complimented others within his corporate organization. This added a twist to the assignment, plus our deadline was a little over 24 hours. No fear, we expedited the retouching and had the client selecting backgrounds while we finished up the extraction and final placement. We delivered the final file approximately 30 hours after we shot the original image and the client was very happy with the final product.


Frequently, your  business headshot will be your first impression with a potential client or employer. A corporate headshot may seem like a simple but in reality it takes more than the latest camera and most recent version of Photoshop to create an image that speaks the language of your business. Delane Rouse is a  Washington DC based  corporate headshot photographer that specializes in creating world class imagery for clients throughout the United States.
