If you are ready for your own headshot with the US Capitol background, here are some important things you need to know to make the most of it. First of all, pick the right time to be there, ideally at sunset or sunrise, as the natural lighting is always best. The Capitol building is super bright and on a sunny day and it will merge into the background which will defeat the whole purpose. Being there early in the morning will also help avoid the crowds as the US Capitol is one of the main tourist attractions in DC. Second, pick the right location for your photoshoot. We, at DC Elite Corporate Headshots, know all the best places, so that you are just the right distance to have the iconic dome in the background.

Monica chose professional yet eye-catching outfit with a bright red lipstick to balance out the grey and black tones. This combination is great for actual headshots and also for some full-body pictures. You can see, Monica took advantage of both options and added several stunning images to her professional portfolio. This kind of headshots speak for themselves even before you get an opportunity to speak.

 

Last but not least, be aware that commercial photography is not permitted on the US Capitol Grounds. Personal photography is allowed with a permit. However, in our experience, shooting at a distance and without a tripod or any other heavy equipment is fine. If you want to know more details about filming permits on US Capitol Grounds you can find them here. In general, photo shooting in most areas of DC requires some kind of a permit. The whole area is heavily regulated by various authorities. But don’t get discouraged, we are familiar with those and have figured out how to still have the best shots done at the right time and place!
