I know a lot of my blog readers are budding photographers and entrepreneurs of business. I want to write a blurb about getting quality head-shots or profile pictures done! I know it can be hard to fork out cash when you're already struggling to make ends meet but, nothing says your personality and your professionalism better then a great photo. Think about it! On my website I had pictures of just me, me with my family and me having fun...all things that are important to me and I want potential clients to know about me! As a photographer I obviously value the power of still life but, I truly believe it speaks louder then words. I'm a website "bouncer" then only thing that makes me want to read is a picture...that's when I stop cause it catches my attention!
Here's some examples I just took of profile pictures:
Example A is more traditional and professional because it captures the room/office. The suit says she means business.
Example B is more fun, vibrant with color and she's laughing instead of serious. The scarf says she's creative and easy to work with. This would be great on a website accompanied by her profile.
are a combination of fun and serious. Either can be used anywhere website or print.
I hope this is helpful! AND I HOPE YOU GET INSPIRED TO HAVE NEW PICTURES TAKEN:)
