ABOUT ME

My story

Greetings, I’m Kevin Brown, the owner and photographer here at PhotoHeadz.  The word photography means “drawing with light” and is both an intellectual and creative outlet for me and will be for many years to come.  I started taking photos of my surroundings for fun years ago and found that I had an eye for visual artistic detail so decided to use that talent to assist others with their goals and dreams.  The goal of my headshot photography business is to offer high quality digital photos that are affordable and visually stunning.  Though I specialize in headshots, I am always looking to expand my skills, portfolio and client base.   I look forward to working with many different people from various backgrounds with exciting dreams to help make them come true.   Let’s work together!

6 Reasons Why You Need Professional Headshots

A headshot is different from a portrait in that the purpose of a headshot is to present just your FACE at it’s best and not your wardrobe and/or environment.  The photographer’s lens is focused on the center of the face and the image is usually cropped at the shoulders and above. The subject’s eyes are always focused directly on the camera lens and intended to engage whoever is viewing the image.  Portraits can be very similar to headshots but tend to be more flexible and artistic with placement of eye direction, clothing, background, props and can be waist up or even full length.  Investing in a high-quality, professionally taken headshot is an investment in your personal brand. It shows you at your best, the way you want prospective clients to see you.  Many of us are not naturally photogenic. As a result, amateur photography can actually end up making you look nothing like you do in person…and definitely not your best. A professional photographer that specializes in headshots knows how to position you, how to choose the best backdrop and how to use lighting to get the best shot possible.

They can also advise you on the best type of clothing and colors to wear. I believe you should dress as you would in your work environment. If you are a business executive, wear a suit. If you are a doctor or nurse, wear your lab coat. If you are a fishing guide, wear what you would wear if you were on the water. If you do work in the business world and have a bit more flexibility with your “work uniform,” choose colors that are flattering to your skin tone and hair color. In general, solid colors are better than patterns. For men, a brightly colored (but not too bold) tie paired with a classic white shirt and dark-toned suit is a nice choice.

Now that social media has taken on such an important role in promoting our professional abilities, having an impact-making headshot is more important than ever. Since every social media platform requires a profile image, your headshot will have a far-reaching web presence in addition to more traditional uses like the staff page of your organization’s website and publication in conference or speaking engagement–related materials.

So are you still wondering if you need to invest in a professionally taken headshot? Here are 6 reasons why you should:

 

1.

A professional headshot translates to your professionalism. If you look professional, potential clients, investors, collaborators, etc, that don’t know you yet will be more likely to agree to that first engagement.

2.

A well posed headshot gives people an idea of your personality before they meet you. A smile portrays approach-ability. A serious look portrays determination and confidence. Make your expression match your personality.

3.

An authentic headshot reminds business contacts of who you are if they met you in passing or at a conference or business function.  This small but helpful visual cue makes it more likely they will accept your “friend” or “follow” request on social media.

4.

A current headshot gives people an idea of what you look like now.  If people see a headshot of you that is 10 years old and then meet you in person there will be an immediate disconnect in their mind regarding your authenticity.

5.

An engaging headshot supports and enhancing the skills highlighted on your resume, advertisement or social media profile and makes you standout. One pro-tip specifically to LinkedIn is to look to the left so that you are literally looking at your written profile.

6.

A quality headshot makes you feel good when sharing with others because you look your best. Having a professional headshot to share with your professional peers boosts your self-confidence and it can even inspire you to share more of yourself with others, take a few more risks and overcome work related challenges.

 

Professional headshots aren’t just for top executives anymore. Everybody needs one. If you don’t have one already, I encourage you to seek out a skilled headshot photographer and check it off your “to do” list. With a great headshot, your professionalism and unique personality will shine through, opening the doors to new opportunity and new business.
