Your Headshot is your Elevator Pitch
As someone that spends his life behind the lens, I know that being out in front of it can be intimidating. Endless thoughts run through your head. I’m not photogenic. I hate my smile. Is this the right outfit? Even though this process can be terrifying, the benefits of having a professional headshot far outweigh the uncomfortable feelings of being in front of a camera. Having a good headshot is critical in starting your career, expanding your business, and breaking those business world barriers.
Having a Strong Headshot is critical
Business professionals are familiar with the concept of an Elevator Pitch. One to two minutes starting with a hook followed by a profound line, then a closing sinker. What if I told you that Pitching yourself starts before you even begin speaking? You can have the best Elevator Pitch in the world, but if you give it standing in your pajama’s no one will take you seriously. The same applies to your resume and social media accounts. Professional headshots are so important because they are the first thing people see. A strong headshot sends the message that you are confident in who you are and what you can bring to the table. It's the first major step in pitching yourself as a potential employee.
Set Yourself Apart
According to the US Census Bureau 62.7% of the United States population lives in major cities. When your competition is literally millions, you have to find a way to stand out. Something so simple as investing in a professional headshot can give you the edge you need to set yourself apart. When people can put a face with a name it adds that personal touch and lets clients know that you're trustworthy, professional, and personable.
Break Down Barriers
Over the years, I've had the privilege of working with many different individuals that span many different areas of business. It still astounds me that certain areas of business have different stigmas related to their profession. I want you to picture an accountant. What's the first image that comes to mind? How about an attorney? A doctor? Stigmas are unfounded, yet, they still have a place in our minds. Headshots break down those barriers and allow others to see you for who you are.
My goal as a photographer is to help you show others how incredible you are. During our session, I'll coach you through those self-conscious jitters so you'll have the confidence to shine. I look forward to working with you, side by side, until we get that perfect shot. Let’s show the world the very best of you.
