Is It The Right Time To Get Headshots?

The right answer is yes. The answer is always yes. Now that quarantine regulations are slowly being lifted it may be a good time to get ahead of the curve And get some new headshots especially if you have been furloughed or out of work for the last few months. You may want to rebrand or rejoin the work force. You would certainly need some new shots for yourself and or your LinkedIn page, social channels, or applications. We have been put in an unfortunate situation with millions of people being impacted on a daily basis. Not only do we have to think of our own well being; we must think of others during his time as well. When you book a shoot at my studio I have current Covid protocols in place meaning a temperature check at the door, a clean shooting environment (regularly disinfected plus air purifier) and hand sanitizer available upon request. I also wear a mask during the shoot. Between March and September my studio was closed. I was only taking outdoor portrait gigs. Now that I am back in studio I want to ensure that your portraits are done right.

Headshots are an extremely important part of getting your presence out there. Folks like to see who they are working with, working for, and hiring. A client recently shared a story about how she was hiring for a new position at her firm and it came down to two candidates. Both were extremely qualified and their resumes were for the most part equal. My client wanted to find out MORE about who she could potentially hire so she found her prospective new hires’ LinkedIn pages. One of the prospects had a professional headshot for her photo. She looked put together, professional, and ready to engage. The second prospect had a photo of her at an outdoor party wearing a tank top and holding a drink. Not only wasn’t the photo professional; it didn’t send the right message to the person who was now looking at her resume. After I asked my client what she did after she saw the photos she turned to me and calmly said “Oh, I threw her resume out. That’s a great photo for instagram but she’s not for us.” And just like that POOF. If she had a professional headshot she may have gotten the job. You may not think you need a new headshots but you do. Comparatively it’s a small investment in yourself for what could be a career with plenty of upward mobility. When you get to a certain point in that career your office would pay for your new headshots and not you. You’re moving up in the world.

A few things go into getting your headshots done. I always recommend that my clients bring a couple of outfit changes. Usually two to three with accessory combinations work wonders for someone’s photo shoot. We are creatures of comfort and with that being said I always suggest bringing something that looks great and feels great. It makes a world of difference to a photo. I recently had a client who came to my studio decked out in a freshly pressed suit. He looks fantastic but he was completely uncomfortable, which never makes for a good headshot. I made the suggestion of ditching the jacket and it was like a switch was flipped. His photos came out even better because he was comfortable in his button down without jacket. Again; we are creatures of comfort and part of my job is to make you as comfortable as possible when it’s time for your headshots.

Getting Your Headshots

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.

About

New York City

Hello! My name is Rich and I started NYPhotoNY.com in 2013 as a full-time photographer. I cater to many individuals and brands offering high-quality photo and video. I grew up in Queens and I could honestly say I’m still obsessed with New York and everything it brings. It’s a fascinating place especially with the variety of people my profession allows me to meet.

My Work

I have a great track record for providing excellent images in a timely manner. As a working-class artist and I have a down to earth sensibility with great attention to detail that comes through in my work. I think fast and shoot quickly and precisely. I truly love what I do and constantly strive to improve. We can always be better than we were yesterday.

My goal is to make every shoot better than the last.

Your Lifestyle Photos

Clients often ask me what my most popular package is. My answer is always the same; one hour of walk around shooting time with up to three outfit changes, all images delivered the same day and retouches of up to 15 shots within 48 hours. I charge $300 flat for this package. More often than not I’ll hear an “I’ll take it!” Well, figuratively I’ll hear it. It’s usually over email or text or in some cases through the all-powerful “DM” (which in this case doesn’t stand for Dungeon Master for my D&D peeps) On occasion I’m met with some resistance and depending on the situation I’ll explain to a potential client that they are investing in themselves with my photography.

How does that translate? Let’s say we walk around for an hour and I take over a hundred shots. I may edit a certain number for a client BUT they get all images to do with as they please. There is an evergreen quality to a shoot like this because someone could take their shots and regularly post them and still have more in the catalog. Many of my clients do this. I’ll get on Instagram and see something I shot years ago and think “how cool is that?” We live in a very connected age so if you’re a blogger, journalist, influencer, style icon, writer, actor, model, or what have you; these shots will be beneficial to your career. Why not hire a pro to capture you at your best instead of taking those selfies or forcing your friends to capture your best side on your cell phone? They tell you they don’t mind, but they’re lying!

Besides branding and self-promotion lifestyle photos are a fun way to show people your personality or even get out of your shell and do something cool! Some of my clients want lifestyle photos just for themselves and that’s perfectly fine! Why not treat yourself with a little bit of vanity? There is nothing wrong with that. Getting your picture taken is a very personal experience that most people aren’t a big fan of. However, it works both ways. If you love the camera we’ll have a great shoot. If you hate the camera we’ll still have a great shoot because when working together we can bring out that dynamite personality. Also, side note: Lifestyle shots are great for dating apps. I’ve had nothing but positive feedback when folks use our shots online!

Another great thing about lifestyle photos is that not only can we shoot them anywhere, but you’ll have something to look at a few years down the line. You’re investing in visual memories of yourself, which can really be said about any photo shoot. Lifestyle shoots are fun and being in NYC there are plenty of amazing places to shoot. Doing this for so long I have a few tricks up my sleeve! I would also suggest really going for it when we shoot. You can always buy some fun clothes and return them after the shoot (Happens a lot!) I’m readily available in the NYC area with usually a week’s notice. sunglasses, lifestyle, product photographer, product photography, jadeblackco, lifestyle photography
