I can’t tell you how many times as a headshot photographer I hear people say “I hate having my picture taken”.
Everyone says that. I think what they really mean is that they hate how a bad photo of them looks. Who wouldn’t?
My job at HEADshotphotos.ca is to make sure that you’re comfortable and relaxed enough that you love what you’re seeing very quickly into the session. So how is that done?
Well… some of it is my secret herbs and spices… another BIG part of it is what we call ‘shooting tethered ‘n the photography biz.
Shooting tethered means that the camera is wired to the computer. When a photo is taken both the photographer and you get to see it big and bold on the screen. Immediately after the first shot clients always way ‘WOW’. Once I get you to say WOW just once the rest is easy!
I think people, when having their Headshot taken, just want to know that they’ll look good and not feel silly about the images they are seeing. Seeing them live on the ‘big screen’ immediately changes the rest of the shoot. I love how people always get into it after the first one or two photos. They are relaxed and things go nice and smooth from there. We get some great shots.
