Quality images convey professionalism, competence, and authenticity, instilling confidence in your audience. When you present yourself in a polished and professional manner, you signal that you take your work seriously and can be trusted to deliver.

So how should you prepare for a business portrait. One of the most common questions I am asked is, “what color should I wear?” 

When sitting for a business portrait, I recommend a color darker than your skin. Why? Because I want to highlight your face, not your clothing. Earthtones like gray, green and brown are great choices. Dark blue is also an excellent choice, it’s the color of trust, honesty, and dependability. If red is your signature color that’s great, just know that it’s a bold choice for a headshot and likely to be more memorable than your smile.

Another frequent question is how much time it will take.

When you come in to be photographed, I block 20 to 30 minutes. I don’t want you to feel rushed. If you feel rushed, your images will look rushed. During that time, I’ll photograph the left and the right side of your face. I’ll have you sit for some images and stand for a few as well.

My goal is to have you looking and feeling your best. Professional headshots are not just about capturing a flattering image; they are about telling your story. When you invest in professional photography, you enhance your online presence, build trust and credibility, and make a memorable impression that sets you apart.

Your story is waiting to be told. Contact LPT Images for the headshot that is the opening chapter.

Lost Race Car Project https://www.lptimages.com/blog/2021/1/lost-race-car-project

I started working on a photography project late this fall that I'm calling Lost Race Cars. Dale Earnhardt Jr.'s documentary series about Lost Speedways got me thinking about what happened to the old race cars, where they are located and what do they look like now. These cars remind me of when I was a kid going to the races with my family.  A friend and I always talk about how the cars were hand painted, each with a different look. Every driver had a little special twist to the look of their car including the number. Special thanks to Jay McDonald and the Spetens for letting me photograph their cars. Layn

A Passion for Books https://www.lptimages.com/blog/2020/11/a-passion-for-books

Sue of Huntington Books is passionate about books.  So much so that she hates to see a book, any book, thrown out. I talked to Sue about her bookstore at a meeting one day and her love for her work was obvious. During our conversation, she referenced a bible verse from the Book of Job 19:23, “Oh that my words were written! Oh that they were inscribed in a book!" I captured these photographs of Sue in her store. Layn

I helped Wayne out this fall by photographing an auction. We got talking and I was reminded of his love of older vehicles. When he talks about them, it is always what kind of engine it is and what needs to be fixed. He enjoys talking about cars and engines almost as much as he enjoys working on them. Here he is in his shop with one of his new favorites. Layn

A Passion for Riding https://www.lptimages.com/blog/2020/10/the-passion-for-riding

I photographed Rob because of his love for riding his motorcycle. He told me, "I always say that when I am on my motorcycle I know exactly why a dog hangs his head out the window!" Riding is his therapy, how he unwinds. Retired from the National Guard, Rob is an adventurer at heart. I love to photograph people like him who have a passion in their heart for the things that they love to do.  Layn

You sell what you show. If you make mouthwatering burgers, show 'em off!  I captured this image for a Mandan restaurant, and was really happy with how it turned out. We styled the burger loosely so when I photographed it, I was able capture all the layers of the sandwich, not just the bun. Layn

Go Wide for Cover Photos https://www.lptimages.com/blog/2019/4/wide-angle I encourage my clients to use tight images that fill the frame when they are posting on social media. When you are scrolling through Facebook or Instagram, most people won't stop and click on your photos to make them bigger. There is an exception to that rule, your cover photo on your business or event page. Going with something wide allows you to adjust the image to fit the frame without cutting off details on the top or bottom or the image. This photograph gives you a good look at the arena, the bronco rider in the midground shows some of the action, and the earth in the foreground could even serve as the backdrop for some event details.

Enviromental Business Portrait https://www.lptimages.com/blog/2019/3/business-portrait environmental business portrait I shot this for a magazine and it really is one of my favorite images that I have photographed recently. I love the story it tells with the owner of the lumber yard on the right side and the materials in the background showing where he works. It's a great example of an environmental portrait for a business. To keep it looking natural, I used the light coming in through an open door with a little flash to highlight the left side of the face. Layn

Event Promotion https://www.lptimages.com/blog/2019/3/event-image
When you are looking for images to promote your event or sport, in this case auto racing, look for images that check these boxes - does it show the sport, is there some reference to the event in the image, are people having a good time?  The flagman on the left-hand side is wearing the event t-shirt, in the background you see the race cars, and the setting sun illuminates the grandstands so you can see people are enjoying the event. Looks like we've got a good promotional image to me. Layn

Traditional Portrait https://www.lptimages.com/blog/2019/2/traditional-portrait
This is one of the things that I still love to do, a traditional portrait of a person in the studio. For me it's not just about the photography. I enjoy the one-on-one communication with the person I'm photographing, making them feel comfortable in front of the camera. The woman I photographed was 80 years old and, in my opinion, a classy, older woman like her should be photographed in this more traditional style. Layn

Portraits That Tell Your Story https://www.lptimages.com/blog/2019/1/work-portrait
Where do you work? What do you do? Do your business images tell your story? I photograph a lot of environmental portraits like this for businesses because they quickly answer those questions. A nice, clean-cut employee in the foreground wearing the business's uniform and a backdrop of the sewing machine with the tools shows they do equipment repair. It easily sets the stage for promoting the work of the business. Layn

One of the students is also an artist and she made the tile used on the fireplace of the home they are building. The day I was there, the student featured and her classmates were cutting the tile and placing it. Pretty cool, Layn

It's never to late for this photographer to learn some new tricks. I was asked to photograph BMX Racing this summer. I'm glad to take on a new challenge cause I'm one of those guys who's not happy shooting the exact same thing again and again and again. Even if I've photographed an activity or event for years, I always try to take a fresh approach and look for new angles. My first night out at Fastrax BMX, I spent most of my time observing, saw what the riders and fans were doing, and how things work. I was also watching to see what the light is doing. This is just a preview of what I've enjoyed shooting so far. If you wanna see more, they are online here.  Layn

I had a fun opportunity recently to photograph a story about a set of twins that are attending school to become automobile mechanics. Here are some of my favorite images from the shoot. Note that the twins look pretty clean. I crawled around on the floor a bit to get the angles I wanted, so I was not so clean.  Least I managed to avoid getting into anything oily, so the wife can't complain too much.  Layn

The May/June calendar is out featuring an image I captured at Mandan's Buggies-n-Blues last year. Hope the weather is just as nice for the 2015 event! Layn

I had fun shooting this collectible car for Dacotah Speedway. The car will be sold to raise funds for the Bismarck Cancer Center as part of the track's annual Drive to Survive race. Looking forward to another successful event. Thanks for allowing me to do my part by photographing. Layn
