Head Shots….Getting Ready

Dubbed “the new handshake,” professional headshots are now the first introduction to you, your business and your personal brand—shouldn’t that intro be the best it can be? With 93% of HR professionals and recruiters tapping into LinkedIn to find quality candidates—plus 2 in 3 on Facebook and more than half utilizing Twitter—that headshot has countless applications in your professional life. Should your profile pic be the family vacation, the fun night out or—worse—the logo or abstract shot? Or should it be a powerful, compelling and confidence-building headshot that makes prospective clients, employers and partners want to click “Connect?”

Today, head shots are a critical piece of many entrepreneurs’ media kit, venture-capital presentation and social-media presence. A dynamic head shot for some professionals can often be the difference between acquiring a job or not.

Before having your corporate photo session think about all of the things that make up your personal brand and what you want others to take away from a glance at your profile page. Jot down some key words and phrases and bring them to your shoot. Think about what exemplifies your personal brand to you. Are you a chef? An educator? A writer? Are there props that could help tell your story? Bring them along! If you prefer I can take a couple different shots—in different outfits— some full length so you’ll have a series to choose from. You may want to tailor your profile picture based on the social media platform you’re using. Remember to have fun! A relaxed, comfortable subject naturally exudes confidence.

What to wear

It’s important that your look matches the image you’re trying to convey. What you wear on a daily basis is a great place to start. Solid colors are always a good choice, as are tops with strong collars and necklines. Even though you may choose to only be shot from the shoulders up, it’s important you’re pulled together from head to toe—you may want a shot or two that are pulled back a bit. Aim for clothes that complement your skin and eye tones and, overall, steer clear of very bold colors.

Your Photosession

This work generally involves setting up a plain background (if required) with studio lighting, I require a suitable space (ie office or boardroom, a chair, and access to power.) This is a single studio set up in one location, then each staff member would be photographed individually. Or in your specified team groupings, If you require each staff member to be photographed at their desk/place of work, then these images would be taken using on camera flash, not studio lighting. Once the images are taken, typically 3no. images per person are produced, they would be edited, subtly airbrushed and provided in both colour and Black & white on DVD/ USB, with copyright for unlimited use. My rates include the Production of  all Images , Any post editing work required, and supply.Commercial work generally requires a very fast turnaround and in most instances all work is supplied to the client within 48hours

Having a headshot that’s clearly representative of your best “you” will speak volumes about you and your business – So put your best face forward!
