A lot of my clients will pop by my studio or I’ll show up at their office and I’m sometimes met with this statement; “They’re making me do this.” I think any photographer anywhere will agree that they hear that more often than not. I also hear “I don’t know why I need this.” It’s like when Ralphie had to wear the rabbit costume in a Christmas Story. At first, I was taken aback. Say about seven years ago when I first started shooting full time; I’d think to myself “Wow. who doesn’t like to get their picture taken!?” (This is also coming from a dude with slight ME complex) As it turns out A LOT of people don’t like getting their picture taken. As a photographer, that has informed me to create as comfortable a situation as possible so folks can come away happy with their photos. I’ve seen and worked with plenty of photographers that straight up act like divas around their clients and guess what? That doesn’t help. The other thing we hear a lot of is “I hate myself in pictures.” I personally take that as a challenge and do have a pretty good track record of shooting something my clients are very happy with. Not to toot my own horn; but toot toot mother f****.
Headshots are important. They show your best self and let people know who you really are. The eyes are the window into the soul and the face is the rest of the house – right? I just made that up. Your face is a house. Does that make sense? Anyway, we live in the age of crazy connectivity where once your photo gets posted online – it’s literally everywhere in the world in less than seconds. The instantaneous transfer of data is so unreal sometimes that it gives you pause! I have shot for clients that had to real-time have their photos shot, edited, and sent to their main office overseas to be posted on their website. That’s just mindblowing to me. Headshots are a necessity, and I’m not just talking about headshots for the corporate environment. (I do really love doing corporate headshots) I’m talking about headshots for yourself. I have done photos for many folks who just wanted to overcome that tinge of anxiety that may lie within so that they can feel confident about themselves by getting in front of a camera, getting great shots, and saying “Hey, I DID that.” I love that. I feel like a proud papa when I can help someone make that happen. I have also done headshots for people to use on dating apps, which I love doing too. Folks gotta step up their dating game somehow, right? They are also great to remember yourself a certain way. Folks are afraid of their own ego but I say to heck with that and feel yourself! Be confident, proud, awesome, and know your worth!
Headshots are a necessity. I’ve said it before and I’ll keep saying it. Book yours now.
