I get asked this question a lot! Headshots are an extremely important form of communication. A picture is worth a thousand words and sometimes none more so than a picture of your face. It lets people know who they’re interacting with. Your face shows your whole range of emotion and gets your message across. Headshots aren’t just for actors or models. They are for EVERYONE.
It’s my job as a photographer to make you look like a star…wait is it?
Sounds kind of self-serving.
It’s MY job as a photographer to guarantee you a comfortable headshot session where you can drop your guard and put your best face forward. Let’s face it-most people hate being in front of the camera. Lots of my clients get headshots because they “have to” but they leave completely vamping for the camera and getting into their session. It’s like getting a shot as a kid or eating your vegetables – it’s not so bad once you do it!
At the end of the day people want to see who they are talking to, they want to know who is applying to the new job, who does IT for the company, who is the CEO/CFO/CPA/MVP/NWO of whatever organization you come from, and most importantly they want to know YOU. You can literally upload your headshots to EVERY social media service, dating app, business app, or any website you can think of. Your face is part of your brand and if you’re an actor or model it IS your brand. Keep that in mind when you’re booking a session. A good headshot is an investment in yourself.
You also never know when you might need one! You can get a new position at your job and BOOM they’re going to ask you for a professional photo. You may get interviewed by a news outlet and guess what? They will definitely need a photo of you. You can send them photos from 20 years ago doing keg stands at a frat party or send in that one wedding photo you looked great in while cutting off the rest of the folks in it. People know. They know…and they judge.
My favorite headshot session to do is The Walk Around. I meet my clients at a predetermined location and we walk around and talk for around an hour to an hour and half just shooting and changing outfits. This is my most popular session as well because it’s filled with quality images and great conversation. And don’t worry – if you’re not a big talker I can probably handle that for the both of us. I’m loquacious.
I guarantee you getting some new headshots will be one of the easiest and rewarding things you will do in your professional life.
Lets throw on some tunes and shoot!

Headshots Can Help
We all have dreams. Some of us follow those dreams. Some of us don’t. That’s a fact. If you ever wanted to be an actor, model, or entertainer and decided to quit your day job to pursue your dream full time then more power to you. That one solitary spark of ambition already sets you apart from the pack. There are tons of great resources out there for a young actor,model or musician to get their foot in the door and many great websites, podcasts, blogs to steer you in the right direction. However, the one thing anyone breaking into the entertainment industry needs is a good headshot.
Headshots can help. Why? Well, there are a thousand reasons. They show casting agents that you are serious about putting your face out there. They are a great way to get attention to your social profiles (which ever one you use), and they are a tool to get you where you need to go. Don’t think of headshots as a luxury. Think of them as a vital part of your process to fulfilling your dream. They are also a great add on to your website, which you should have regardless of what field you’re in. If you have founded a niche company and want folks to get to know you a bit with a personal touch then add a photo to your “about” page. Investing in professional photography for your personal headshot goes a long way in this day and age. We live in the future and everything is a click or swipe away. You need that image to have an impact that people will remember.
Once you have a photo or set of photos; those images will be your go to for a surprising number of connections. If you subscribe to a site like helpareporter.com many times the writers looking to interview you for a specific topic will require a headshot. That means don’t send them the photo of you from Halloween that you think looks sexy. It means send them a professional looking photo that lets everyone know that you mean business. What do headshots mean for business? It means clients can attach a face to brand. What do headshots mean for an aspiring actor or model? It means they now have a way to communicate their money maker to potentially interested parties.
If you’re starting your entertainment career, leaving an old job to start your business, or even if you just want some photos to reflect yourself to others then I suggest getting some professional headshots done. It’s part of the experience of going out on your own and saying “Here I am.”
