1) Most tripod heads can flop on its side to make the orientation vertical. This is about the worst method. Makes the balance of the tripod/camera lopsided and you lose movement in some axes.
2) Lens mounted collar. Just rotate the lens. The body follows.
3) Get an L-plate that allows mounting the camera body in vertical orientation. Not cheap though. Check out www.reallyrightstuff.com

Just make sure you align the camera to one of the tripod legs, not in between 2 and it will be stable.
