I have always been a staunch proponent for the professional head shot. In a digital online world, the quip, "You never get a second chance to make a first impression;" couldn't be more true. Whether it is Facebook, your website bio, or your linked in profile, your head shot, should be your best presentation. Your head shot should go beyond just good looks, but be a window into your personality.
I really enjoyed the interaction with Amy while capturing my head shot. It wasn't about all the technology and lighting, even though the tech and the lighting style was very effective and gave a look that we both liked. I loved how she was able to bring a side of me I sometimes rarely think I show, but yet, is so me!
If you are in the Charlotte, NC area and are in need of new head shots, I strongly recommend Amy of Ozzy Headshots. Not only is she a colleague, but she's my head shot photographer!
Your head shot portrait is often the first thing people see, and the last thing they remember, so make it a great first impression.
Whatever the reason you have for a new head shot, keep in mind, there is no "One Size Fits All" type of head shot, nor a "One Size Fits All" type of client.
Head shots are important tools for letting people know who you are before they even meet you. Consider updating your head shots regularly, and definitely with any major physical change. Remember, while a smile is pleasing to most people, it is more about the eyes and the engagement. Be yourself, and let that personality come through!
