Booking Your Headshots 2024

Every year I write a blog post about how booking a headshot session will help your brand. Guess what? I’m sticking to my guns here; much like how you should be booking new headshots every six to nine months and sticking to those guns. I’ve been at this full-time for almost eleven years (March 1st is my eleven-year anniversary of being a full-time photographer, how insane is that!?) and I’m still flabergasted by folks who think they can use a twenty-year-old picture and come across as themselves. Think about how many changes you go through in a year or less. You might get several new hairstyles, haircuts, new wrinkles, less wrinkles, gained weight, lost weight, fixed teeth, or even gained a new sense of style. I firmly believe that if you’re in the workforce, have a brand, or are and actor/model you need updated photos of yourself to present your potential clients with.

Your potential clients could be the firm you’re applying to, a modeling gig, a residency program at a hospital, or any place of business that wouldn’t mind seeing that sweet face of yours. You must look your best and present yourself in the best way possible because you “want the job.” HR folks always tell me how a great photo can be the biggest difference between equally skilled candidates getting the same job. Comparatively, who would you rather hire? The person who posts a cropped photo of themselves at a wedding OR the person who has a professional headshot that they took the effort to book themselves in hopes that they completed the package of their resume? I think we would all go with the person who took that little extra effort to look that much more put together. It’s my job to make you look as good as possible. I always do a mini interview whenever clients book a shoot just by asking “What are these headshots for?” It allows my clients to elaborate, show me samples, and then we nail it. I cater to each of my clients needs as far as photos go.  I offer corporate headshots as well as headshots for actors/models and lifestyle headshots – which truth be told are my favorite to shoot especially if that means walking around NYC while we do them.

What sets me apart from other photographers? I’ve been in business a lot longer than most and have been extremely reliable in these unreliable times. I offer bang for the buck so to speak, and I’m friendly as heck. Oh and I also take damn good photos. You are certainly in good hands PLUS I’ll brag a bit and say that many clients have gotten back to me saying their coworkers are jealous of their photos. I always appreciate sentiments like that. I Know most people hate “picture day” but you have to suck it up and climb that mountain. Book that shoot. Apply for that job. Update your linked in. Start going after those acting gigs. It all starts with a great photo.

Fitness Photography

I love taking fitness photos. Why? Because it shows how much hard work and dedication someone can put into themselves to get the most out of a new lifestyle or change. It’s inspiring to see my clients make huge life changes and want to document those changes for the world to see. I have shot personal trainers, models, actors, MMA fighters, boxers, and everyone in between. Wake up and get your fitness photography NYC! I cater to anyone who wants some high quality photos of the body that they are proud of. Nothing shows the world you’re ready or how committed you are to bettering yourself than images showcasing the physical and mental changes you have made. When you have your health you have the world at your fingertips. Small changes lead to big changes until you find that you’re the person you have always wanted to be. Fitness is a choice we all have and if you put your mind to it you can achieve great things and feel a million times better than you did when you started your uphill journey to being in command of your health.  Personally, it’s a journey that took me 33 years to start and I’m not looking back any time soon. In encourage everyone to quit smoking, hard boozing (regular boozing is ok in moderation), and eating things that will slowly kill you. Start running, swimming, biking, and eating better. You’ll live longer and love how you feel.  When you’re ready for some fitness photography NYC you know where to find me!

Headshots 2023

         Headshots are more important now than ever before. Why? I’ll tell ya! You need great photos to show people just who is behind the screen working a million miles away. If you’re a new business owner you need your photo attached to your brand. If you’re an actor or model you need a great photo to land those castings and submit yourself for roles, right?

            Yes, I want to sell you on my service but I also want to let you know the importance of getting your headshots done. Most people don’t like getting their pictures taken. Now, I’ve been in business for almost ten years and I haven’t met anyone apart from an actor or model who truly LOVES getting their photos taken. Most business folks hate it BUT they do see it as a necessity. Does it make my job harder? Not really! Every shoot is a learning experience – not only for myself but for my subjects as well. Getting your new headshots should be a priority anytime you decide to make any move in business or with a new life transition. People are always looking. Don’t use those wedding pictures, don’t use selfies, and don’t use the pictures your friends took at that rooftop party last summer. Book your shoot with someone who knows what they’re doing. You literally need to put your best face forward so anyone you interact with can see that best face. It really does make a difference and really does make an impression on anyone who looks at your online profile. I have heard stories from HR people that they would have hired so and so candidate over another based on skills alone BUT the person who lost out had a terrible photo, which showed the HR person that in a certain regard they weren’t taking themselves seriously. Now, it doesn’t sound like much but perception is reality in cases like these.

               When you finally decide to pull the trigger on your photoshoot I would suggest doing your research. You need to find a good photographer with a good track record who will make you feel comfortable during your shoot and deliver fantastic images. More often than not consumers will often try go with the cheapest option, which does not yield the best results in my opinion. You really don’t want to go with the person that charges $50 and has a shoddy portfolio. You need to invest in yourself. That being said good photography definitely ranges in price. BUT with a little research, you can find someone who fits your needs, budget, and someone who will deliver fantastic work. You can even search for headshots that you want to emulate and ask the photographer if they can shoot similar images. You are after all investing in yourself and should be in charge of your narrative.

                   Thanks for reading! Now, here comes the part that you knew was coming! If you are in the metro New York area do not hesitate to book me for your headshots. My work is great. My reviews are great. And I’m not too bad myself. PLUS, I have great rates and a cozy Queens studio that I use for Linkedin/Corporate/Acting headshots. Check out some examples below and I’m looking forward to our shoot!
