What to look for when hiring a Headshot Photographer.
Seven things no one ever tells their Headshot Photographer and why I love what I do.
As a Headshot Photographer, I noticed early on that no one ever says this to me:
“This is your lucky day…. I look great.”
“I can’t believe how great my skin looks.”
“I’m so excited. You’re going to get some amazing headshots today.”
“I bought this new outfit and I can’t wait to see how great it will look in these Headshots.”
“Man, I’m in the best shape of my life. This is going to be great.”
“I love having my photo taken. I can’t wait to show my friends.”
“Which side do you want to shoot. Both look great.”
No one tells me any of this. Ever!
If you’re good at what you do though, you get to change the way people think of themselves in just one click. I love that!
Anyone can take a good photograph but a great headshot photo will bring out the best in you. It will show your confidence and approachability. Done right it says something about you and sets the right impression in a millisecond. This is why a good Headshot Photographer is not about the equipment they use. It isn’t about the lighting. These things are definitely important but what’s more is your look. What it says and how it says it.
Honestly, I can say, that every person who has ever stepped in front of my camera has said they enjoyed the process more than they thought they would. Being a Headshot Photographer is very powerful. This is why I do what I do.
