If your reading this, you have likely decided it’s time to think about updating your headshot. Maybe your looking for a new job, a promotion, giving a talk, or looking for a new mate.
As your going to be investing your valuable time and money into a new headshot, it stands to reason that you would want to get a GREAT HEADSHOT from your session and you probably don’t want to settle for just a “good photo.”
But how do you go from a good photo to great photo? What’s the difference?
The answer is as follows:
A great photo is where NO detail is overlooked.
A good photo is usually pleasing in several ways, but something is just off. Maybe it’s a little thing or maybe it’s obvious. Most people usually can’t quite identify what’s wrong in these kind of photos, but everyone can feel the dissonance and knows subconsciously that something is off.
But who cares?
Truth be told there are many important people who’s opinion matter and may never tell you to your face; for fear of offending or upsetting you, if your image is falling short.
- In business your client wants to know you will diligently handle the account and no detail is overlooked.
- Your potential new boss wants to know you are organized and can handle the responsibility.
- The casting director wants to envision you playing the role flawlessly with minimal takes
- In online dating, your potential mate wants to feel a connection with you and not get the wrong vibe.
Headshots do matter and a great one is an INVALUABLE tool to help you meet your goals in life.
