John was a great photographer! I really enjoyed working with him and I appreciate how prompt and professional he was. His responsiveness was excellent and he always remained patient, even with my many requests and emails.

Business Headshots in Chicago & Suburbs

One of my large clients, for example, is an international law firm which has been with me for 20 years with four different administrators during that period. Whenever you encounter a problem, I solve it. When you need special scheduling, I arrange it. If you lose an image from five years ago, I’ll find it. If one of your people doesn’t like something about her portrait, I’ll fix it. If you need special kinds of files for the home office, we sort through the techno-babble and get them just what they need. Whenever you need a professional or corporate photo, I’ll sweat the details so you don’t have to.

If you’re the subject I’m going to shoot, I’ll make the headshot process painless. In fact, many of our subjects are surprised how easy I made it and have told me so. I accept your input and share my 31 years of experience. I give you plenty of photos to choose from for your professional portrait, and then I retouch it for a successful, upscale look, giving you as much or as little retouching as you prefer.

Your retouched business headshot will look really great!

Your finished headshot will look worthy of appearing in a top national magazine. You’ll look good, and the shot itself will look good. And it will look real and not retouched.

When you get your final images, after you approve the retouched proof, you’ll get hi-res color and black-and-white, low-res color and black-and-white, a version for LinkedIn, and more.

For your professional portrait, John Manning Photography is your best choice in Chicago.

We use all our skills as a headshot photographer to make you look successful, at the top of your game, and a leader in your field. And the way we do it, business portraits can be fun!

Same-Day Service & Affordable Prices

I came across John’s webpage through a simple Google search when looking for someone to do a professional headshot. When I contacted John, he was very responsive and even willing to set up a weekend appointment. He took roughly 100 pictures and provided an ample amount of options. The process was stress-free, and I am extremely pleased with the quality of the final products. I highly recommend John Manning for your portraits, and I would definitely do business with him again!

Worried about how you will look?

Many people are nervous when they come to the studio. Most have had bad experiences in the past. As a result, they are reluctant to go through the process again. But it doesn’t have to be that way. The headshot you use for your business is just too important to neglect or put off doing.

I know how to make people look good. Some of it’s done in camera. More is done when the image is processed and retouched. Bad smiles, yellow teeth, double chins, blemishes, deep wrinkles, clothing that is too tight or too loose, etc. I deal with problems like these every day. Most of them can be fixed to make you look really good, really natural, and looking the way you really look. Sometimes I go a little too far, and other times not far enough to suit your expectations. That’s why I made my retouching totally custom.  I’ll make revisions and keep working on the image until you’re pleased with the result. Most people are totally satisfied with what they see.

Best of all, you’ll feel proud when you use your new business headshot to represent you and your work.
