The Importance of Professional Head Shots
A professionally taken head shot, is important because it shows people that you are serious about your first impression. In a social media dominated world, most people “meet” us for the first time by our head shot. When you have a professional head shot it shows that you care about the way that you appear to others. You take yourself seriously. It shows that you are worth the investment of a great image of yourself. The bottom line is it creates a great first impression.
If your head shot is not a professional head shot, it doesn’t inspire confidence and that you don’t take your image seriously.
Most professionals are now on Linked In. They had a lot to say about the importance of a professional head shot.
If you are in a professional line of business, you need a professional head shot.
How to Prepare for Your Professional Headshots Session
Once you have booked your head shot photography session with our studio, it’s time to start planning. Your outfits are a key part of your finished headshot images. Professional head shots are just that…head shots. They generally are half body or head and shoulder photos. This means that there needs to be interest to draw the viewer in in a tightly photographed image. We recommend that you choose a few different combinations of colors. This will give you options when choosing your final images. Also it is important to think about accessories. In a tightly shot photograph accessories add interest to a professional headshot. It’s as simple as adding a necklace, earrings, scarf or pin. It can change an image from boring to interesting.

We love having band photography sessions. When you get to photograph a cool band like Rellen, it makes our job easy.
Our main goal for the band photography session was to capture a composite of the band. The description of a composite image is a photo that is a combination of multiple images. These images are then merged together into one single image. We photograph the elements of a composite image on a green screen. Then the individual images are extracted from the background in Photoshop. In conclusion you then layer in multiple elements and filters to create a somewhat surreal image.
This was the single image that was the result of their session.
How to Prepare for Your Band Photography Session
When we are preparing to photograph a band, or any composite, a lot of preparation must happen. Bands have already developed their “style” and are artists. In general, artists, have a look that they already have achieved, or are trying to achieve. Communication is key when planning for a band photography session. We must find out the style or the look the band wants to be labeled with. Once that is established we have to rule out what they don’t want. Next we have to agree on a theme for the image. Finally we have to create a background image.
The background image will determine the posing that must be captured to create the final image. Photography lighting and your camera angle must match the background perspective.
Before we photograph a composite image, we draw several sketches. This gives us options for posing. When the band arrives we will try a variety of poses, but only poses that will work in the composite that we are creating. This helps us think through what can truly work in a final image.
What Type of Client Uses Composite Images
We have a number of clients that are now choosing composite images. Bands, solo artists, families and some of our corporate clients now are wanting more from their photography. Some of our corporate clients are wanting to stand out in a crowded market. When we can create a unique composite image, it will help them do that. Companies that want to portray themselves in different setting is now possible through composite images. Families that want their images to be more unique then the “Jones”, it is a perfect option.
