how to have a better headshot

Headshot tips

This is a great time of year for a new business profile picture.  You can use it for your website, business cards, Linkedin profile or even Facebook.

Here are a few things to consider when planning your session.

1 – Dress for your job.  If you own a landscaping company then a casual jeans and polo shirt will look great in the outdoors.  If you work in an office environment you will want formal dress in the studio, and maybe even in your office at work.

2 – Look your best.  This seems like a no brainer, but make sure you get a haircut, iron your clothing, and dress to impress.  Digital magic can only do so much:)

3 – Bring additional clothing.  It’s nice to have different options for the session.  Sometimes what looked great in your closet doesn’t look as good when you are posed and lit in a studio.  You’ll always be glad you had a few options to make sure you get a headshot you love.
