Headshots are more important now than ever before. Why? I’ll tell ya! We live in a pseudo post-pandemic world and folks are still working remotely and connecting online. 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.
