A good headshot is essential now that social media has taken on such an important role in promoting our professional abilities, having an impact-making headshot is more important than ever. A headshot gives people a glimpse into your personality before they meet you, it conveys professionalism, it reminds business associates who you are (face recognition), it shows authenticity ( your picture is what you look like NOW), and it makes you look your best because most likely you have had your hair cut, wearing nicely ironed clothes that compliment you, and if a woman, you have makeup on (professionally applied is best).
Anthony changed jobs and needed a professional headshot for his social media, LinkedIn Profile, his new job's webpage, and a magazine. During our consultation over the phone, we chatted about his needs, the "look" he wanted to convey to the world, clothing choices, and my basic checklist so that nothing is left out of the process.
On Headshot day, Anthony showed up after a short work day, arriving fully prepared. I knew that he needed several poses showing the various sides to him. We began with the professional headshot and full body, moved to a more casual professional look, and then finished off with the casual look. Once we achieved Anthony's different looks, the images were quickly uploaded into my computer and culled while Anthony changed. We sat down and choose the images that conveyed his message, and I then edited the images, emailing back to him that same day. Easy and painless, please update your profile pictures and know that I am here as your St Louis Headshot Photographer.
