No matter what your profession, in the internet age it’s essential to have quality photos of yourself for online profiles and websites. The traditional route is the business headshot; typically on a solid color or neutral background and professionally lit. This is a great start– it’s versatile and it works for Linkedin, staff web profiles and networking.
However, there are times when a casual, more personable look might be suit your needs better. If you use Facebook or Twitter to keep in touch with both business and personal contacts, you may want to have a portrait that shows a bit of your personality or outside interests. Both of these platforms have a combination of a long horizontal “cover image” with a square profile photo to fill.
These images are an investment in your brand– so I want you to love using them, and be absolutely confident in your choice. I’d be happy to help you plan and execute the look that’s right for you. I provide a gallery of proofs to choose from, and retouching options are available as needed or desired. Answers to common pre-shoot questions can be found here. Feel free to contact me directly with wild ideas, or to discuss logistics.
