This year the head shot side of my work has really grown. As a woman who runs her own business, word of mouth has brought other female freelancers and entrepreneurs who need good portraits for their websites and social media to me. I love taking these photographs because it gives me the opportunity to find out more about what other people do and why. It’s fascinating working closely with someone else to help them present themselves as they want to be presented.
I follow the same gentle approach with head shots as I do with family photography. The session is unhurried and my priority is making my client feel comfortable in front of the camera so that they can show the best of themselves. In the studio I work with the camera linked to a computer so that we can constantly review the images on screen together and decide what lighting to tweak, what poses and facial expressions are working best, if an outfit change would improve the pictures. We go back and forth between looking at the images and shooting more until my client is completely happy with the results, which I then gently retouch to bring out the best in them whilst still looking very natural. I also offer head shots on location, if that is more relevant to your business. I have a make up artist that I work with regularly if you’d like a little help in that department.
If you’d like to have a chat about my head shot packages, please get in touch.
