I'm not a studio photographer and I don't use any type of flash. I'm pretty minimalistic when it comes to my gear. I show up to my sessions with my backpack holding my camera and 2 lenses. Depending on the light, I may have a reflector, and depending on the location, I may have a blanket. That's it! I move my clients all over, so the thought of lugging more equipment around with me didn't sound like fun!
When I first started my business I never even thought I'd offer headshots. I figured a professional would only want a studio portrait. Then I started seeing fellow photographers swopping head shot sessions with each other and loved how the natural yet professional they looked!
So, the idea of an "Environmental HeadShot" is just as it sounds...we are outdoors! I think it's important to be yourself whatever business your in. I like to capture you so that your clientele can feel a connection whatever business your in.
It's important to be authentic to be successful in business. I believe you shouldn't judge a book by it's cover, however it's human nature to judge by a feeling. Having a photo that connects with people draws them in. They want to know more about you and your brand.
I don't like to give "just one good picture", I like to give multiple! These days you can advertise in so many ways...social media profiles, websites, business cards, magazine ads, flyers, etc. Different poses or different crops go better for different advertisements, so you'll want some options!
I'd love to work with you and create something a little different to help set you apart in your business! You can find more information about my headshot session through the Sessions page HERE.
