Don’t ever take your own head shot
Why do I say “Don’t ever take your own photo for professional use?”
Taking your own head shot photo is like building and maintaining your own web site.
It’s just not a good idea and won’t get you optimal results. Your professional head shot is a small investment that can have a big impact on how your potential clients perceive you as a business professional.
Even professional photographers don’t take their own head shots. They know that you just can’t represent yourself with mediocre photos. Selfies just don’t show you at your professional best.
Work with a professional for professional results
When you work with a professional photographer, they will help you with the right wardrobe and location choices. They also know how to help you relax and feel at ease during your photo shoot. Believe it or not, you will actually enjoy having your professional portrait taken when you have found the right photographer for you.
Every photographer has their own unique style and personality. Take the time to have a phone chat with your potential photographer to see if you are the right fit for each other.
Try to find a photographer that will help you through each step of the process. From choosing the right location, to helping you decide what to wear for your session.
A great professional head shot photographer will retouch and enhance your photo. You won’t have to worry about finding a separate retoucher, and you’ll have the assurance that the same person who took your photos will also be handling the retouching process.
So, when you want to ensure that your professional portraits look their best and make a lasting impression, choose a photographer who also offers retouching and enhancement services.
