Tampa Head Shots
It seems like lately I’ve been getting more and more calls for head shots and professional portraits in Tampa and it makes me so happy! Not just because I get to work but because these images are so much more important than most people realize. There are so many bad head shots out there… I see social media like Facebook and Linkedin all the time with horrible images of people and it makes me cringe. This is your calling card! This is your first impression! The day is long gone when we can treat a professional portrait like an annoyance to be done once every decade or so. We live in a world of images now.
Think about your head shot the way you would think about a job interview. You want to look your best, you want to be prepared, you want to smile and be confident. Well, you want your picture to reflect that and that means good lighting, good posing and a professional photographer. I can’t stress enough how important it is to treat your online image the same way you treat you real-world image. The two cannot be separated.
It doesn’t matter what type of image you need. Modern or Environmental… they both require a photographer with a solid set of skills and experience. It’s funny but you would think that a head shot would be one of the easiest things to do as a photographer but it’s exactly the opposite. It’s easy to do but hard to do well. The results of a good head shot session are obvious. A little retouching goes a long way as well. Not so much that you look fake but just enough that you look your best is the secret.
