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.

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.
