Really, getting a head shot is less painful than a shot to the head! Not that I can speak from personal experience on the latter, or I would not be typing this. One of the things I have really enjoyed shooting these last few years are head shots. It seems like more and more people need them for all the social media going on now-a-days, whether its to socialize, do business or find a date! I personally find them fun because I get to meet so many great people, plus it’s always a challenge to find great lighting. And I’m always up to the challenge! I don’t want a big, uncomfortable artificial lighting set up. I found that people who are used to getting their head shot are surprised that it’s not 45 minutes, it’s not 30 minutes…it’s more like 5 to 10 minutes. Unless you want to drive to different locations, it is a really is a short process. Just knowing that is enough to make you smile. See? Painless.
We have clients that we photograph new head shots for, year after year. If you want to stay current online, you need to continue to update your head shot. And if your a company showing images of your people on a website, they need to be shot by the same photographer, so everything is consistent and professional in the way your company presents itself. There are way too many companies showing a dozen extremely different looking head shots on their staff page. From very poor looking selfie to JC Penny head shot, to a great looking head shot. And clumped together it looks very bizarre and cheapens the whole impression the company presents. If you are reading this, you probably need a new head shot. Remember, it’s worth investing in that first impression!
