- First Impressions: In this digital age, most people are looking for recommendations via the internet for services and products. Having a nice, professional headshot can denote a sense of comfort by giving a face to the name and letting people know what to expect.
- Expression: Normally when you think of a headshot, you imagine the muslin backdrop in the studio, intricate posing, a suit and tie. Not that there's anything wrong with a traditional headshot, but the options these days are endless when it comes to style and setting. Depending upon the nature of your business, you want to consider the message you want to convey to your potential customers and clients by focusing on your particular expression and style.
- Location: You don't have to be in the confines of a studio to get a pro headshot! People are utilizing everywhere from their backyard to their city's landmarks to use as a perfect backdrop for their headshot, especially if they are a locally owned business. I've worked with client's who want to take a headshot to convey something that's important to them. The location you choose can also create can create a unique vibe and spark conversation.
- Confidence: Lastly, a great headshot can give you a big boost of confidence you need to get out there and take on the world! So make sure you choose a photographer you trust will bring out the best in you. If you aren't sure who to use, find one who specializes in head shot photography and who's style mimics what you're searching for.
