It is hard to overestimate importance of the first impression. It becomes even more important when it is about making impression without meeting a person – via photo in your resume or CV, professional social network profile, publication.

How it works

Our photo studio in Geneva provides you with opportunity to make a professional business portrait, CV photo, profile picture for social networks which will reflect your personality, help you to stand out of the crowd and make proper first impression on your colleagues, business partners, clients or future employer.

Your aim is to make other person think: “This is the face the person we’d like to work with” and we are here to help you to show this in your photo portrait.

Our approach is simple – “take it till you make it“. We work on your photo portrait until the moment you are happy with the result. Usually it means more than 20 minutes of your time and less than “DVD with hundreds of the photos”  for your CV that you just can’t use.

We don’t leave you alone in this process. You’ll get theoretical knowledge about how human’s face works and will be constantly guided during the session to implement emotional part of photo portrait theory into practice.

All business portrait sessions are different, some people may just need 5 minutes and “voila” – there is a great portrait for resume. For others some time needed to relax in front of the camera.

We do our best to make you feel comfortable and look as a person on business portrait should look like.

What people say

I needed to have a business portrait taken and Alex was great in leading me through the process. Actually, I never feel comfortable in front of a camera, but he made it very easy. He also quickly understood what I was looking for - something professional, but not "fake".


Highly recommended for business portrait. We have also ordered the photo-session for the Kids and were highly satisfied.


Following the recommendations below I also went to Alex for a professional business portrait. What can I say, I am camera shy and I always thought I look pretty stupid in photos. Alex helped me passed the awkward moments and I am happy with the results. Warmly recommended!


Alexander Studios is a great place to have your photo taken. Not only is it truly professional but also a fun experience and the results are outstanding


I highly recommend to do a Business Portrait for your CV with Alex. Not only the end-result was very professional and of an exceptional quality, but also the individual approach during the photo session itself was amazing! Even if you are one of those people who find it difficult to feel relaxed in front of the camera, don't worry, because Alex will find a key to make the best out of your photo session. Thank you for the great job!


Alex was readily available and flexible to do the photoshoot. Very professional to work with and provided excellent results. He also had a good understanding of my industry needs and gave great inputs to make sure I got the best images. He is affordable and personable, and is highly recommended.


I went to Alex for a professional headshot. He was prompt with email and agreed to see me the next day. He was a real pleasure to work with and takes obvious care with his work product. My boss was so impressed that he asked for Alex's contact. Highly recommended.
