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 have had many opportunities to be an editorial photographer for multiple magazines. This is our first time photographing for Military Spouse Magazine. In researching the magazine it has a very large distribution and has had many celebrities line their magazine covers. Monthly Military Spouse magazine circulation is 70,000.
Just last month Shaq was photographed for the cover for his “Shaq-A-Claus!” campaign. For us to photograph the cover for January, following Shaq, was exciting. There was quite a photographic standard in place that we needed to meet or exceed.
We got the call to photograph the cover and feature images for an article on Vista of VistaPix Media.
When we are photographing for a magazine, it is very important that we work closely with the art director. From there we receive specific instructions on their layout and vision for the magazine cover photo as well as the layout. Once we receive that information, we then can incorporate our photographic artistry. When we include our own creative vision, it helps the publication have multiple options when choosing their final photos.
As an editorial photographer it is important for us to bring out the best in our clients. It is no different then photographing any other client. We want to ensure that we highlight the best features, helping them look their best. Our full service studio helps us achieve this goal. We also can provide hair and make up artists for any of our photographic sessions. As a final touch, our editing will ensure that no detail is missed. The client and the magazine will be thrilled with the final product.
This magazine cover photo was a clean modern look that changed dramatically from the original vision for the cover. The collaboration between the art director and the photographer is essential to achieving a product that is suitable for their magazine but also incorporates the photographers artistic vision.
This is the latest of many editorial projects that we have photographed. If you would like to see more samples of our editorial photography, please contact us today.

Tips for Your Professional Head Shot Photo Session
Professional Hair and Make Up Services: For women, always consider professional hair and make up services. Professional make up application is key to a flawless complexion. We have professional make up and hair artists that will come to the studio and provide that service for you.
For guys, a little translucent powder applied to the face will help knock off any shine on the skin.
Variety of Colors and Styles: Often we have a favorite outfit or color, but in photographs it doesn’t always translate as beautifully as we imagined. If you have a variety of colors and styles it will give you more choices.
Different Backgrounds: If you choose us to be your head shot photographer, we will provide multiple backgrounds to give you a variety of options when choosing your perfect head shots. We also can provide green screen or white screen head shots with extraction services. When photographing on white or green screen you can be extracted from the background and placed into any background.
Tiny Prints and Stripes: Avoid tiny patterns, like hounds tooth or tiny stripes. They don’t translate well in camera and give a “zig-zag” appearance in your images.
