Professional Headshots can help you land a new job or more importantly new clients.
Your photo sets the tone for your brand and professionalism. Therefore your headshot is a worthy investment in yourself.
Pro Headshot Considerations:
Look and Feel
While everyone loves a bargain, your image is not the place to skimp and you generally get what you pay for in photography.
That being said, the most expensive studio does not always offer the best quality or best value. Pro quality work is expensive, but quality of work is the most important factor. When shopping within pro level brands and price points - pick the studio with the best quality work and best value for your needs.
The quality of your headshot involves both technical aspects and less tangible elements we will talk more about in a moment.
Technical aspects involve the quality of the lighting, posing, wardrobe selection, attention to color, etc.
In addition, the level and quality of Photo Finishing is an important area for comparison. Cheap studios use auto filters that make skin look plastic and fake.
Skin softening is one area. We go to great lengths and attend to many details in the finishing work that others skimp on.
When shopping a studio, compare the level of retouching offered
Sssh.... Photo Finishing will be "Our Little Secret"
We all have flaws and little things we just don't like about our appearance. Don't let these little annoyances stand in your way and hold you back from having an amazing photograph. Photo finishing is more than removing a pimple here and there.
First we will always do our best to photograph you in beautiful soft light. Whatever the nice lighting doesn't fix, after our shoot we will move over to photoshop to finish our signature look.
We can offer shaping of features, whitening/straightening teeth, removing stubble, shaping loose fitting wardrobe, and of course skin softening.
This is not a cheap "Face Tune" app and is instead professional level editing that looks good at all resolutions and sizes. Cheap apps and filters might look ok to some on the screen of your cell phone until you zoom in or enlarge the photo. Try that image on an advertising billboard!
It's our little secret and ask us about out "cover model" technique to give you that perfect symmetrical look that just might land you on a magazine cover! Ssshh...we won't tell anyone if you don't!
Look and Feek
Lastly, the Vibe or "Feel" of an image is MOST OFTEN overlooked when choosing a headshot studio and is what really speaks to professional level work.
What is the story of your headshot and what does it say about you?
Do you want an image that is more professional or more of a warm friendly vibe?
