HOW CAN I GET THE BEST RESULTS FROM MY HEADSHOT SESSION?

Arrive in good time so that neither you nor the photographer are rushed or stressed. Try to look as natural as possible, don’t overdo the makeup, more can be added if required and remember any small skin blemishes can be touched out by the photographer if necessary.

If you have prepared well you should be able to relax and enjoy the session.

Share with the photographer what you hope to achieve. If you have had headshots before discuss with the photographer how they have or haven’t helped with your career.

Go with the suggestions made by your photographer, who will probably take 2-300 shots and it is their experience that will help create the right variety for you to choose from.

The more relaxed you are the more likely it is that the photographer will capture the essence of you. Remember the photographer wants great results as much as you do!

All the photographers on Headshot Hunter have outlined how they approach headshot sessions and what is included in the price, so you can take that into account when selecting your photographer.

If you have prepared well you should be able to relax and enjoy the  session.

The Power Of LinkedIn

Had Mark come to the studio this morning, he owns Corporate Drama www.corporatedrama.co.uk and he wanted to update his head shots. Spent a couple of hrs with him in the studio this morning and he went away with some awesome shots.

These shots prove the power of using LinkedIn to network, I was making connections last week and Mark was one of them. My timing was perfect as he was looking to have new head shots. He checked out my profile and website that day and booked his session.

Picking and choosing the right people to connect with will pay dividends and don’t bombard people with loads of messages telling them what you do. Be polite send a thank you for the connection and explain your services, tell them that you’re their if they need you. Send updates every so often just as a reminder but don’t be pushy. Its all about networking! Upset a connection and you have lost all of those potential recommendations.

Why The Duck Would You Do That

We have all been on websites where the images of the product they are selling just suck. If you are anything like me, you will avoid these sites like the plague when parting with your hard earned cash.

We all judge on first impressions, and an unprofessional looking website will be loosing you hundreds of customers by simply not investing in professional photography. The penny pinchers out there will say “I know I will use my phone.” It’s not a case of saving money, with professional photography you are investing in your brand and staying a step ahead of your competitors to attract customers to your product.

Here at DW Images Photography I invest a lot of time giving my clients professional images that they are proud to use on there websites. The Images below are what I have put together to prove the point, the first one is just shot on my mobile phone under electric light and the second is shot in a professional studio set up.

If you are looking to add or update your images on your website, come and talk to myself at DW Images Photography. I can offer great rates and quick turn around on your website photography.

Photography Is Undervalued

photography-logo4-singleTo the people out there that always want something for nothing, you wouldn’t expect not to pay the going rate for a plumber to fix your burst pipe. So why do you always expect your photography for free.

Owning an expensive set of spanners doesn’t make you a great plumber. That’s the  same as owning the most expensive camera doesn’t make you a great photographer. They are only tools to do the job.. When you book a photographer you’re not paying for his camera, you’re paying him for his skill, knowledge and my qualifications to supply  you with the best phtographic work I can.

Yes maybe you will choose your photographer on price, the same as you would choose your plumber. But CHEAPEST is not always the best and good value for money, especially when you have hire a second person to fix it second time round.

Let’s look at this another way, I you’re are getting married you would expect to pay an average of £1500 to your wedding photographer to be there for eight hours. You wouldn’t normally think twice about that. So just because I maybe at your office photographing your staff portraits, or at my studio shooting pack shots of your product to go on your website. Why is that any less deserving of being rewarded at a decent rate. Like that wedding photographer and that plumber who fixed your leak, I have years of experience and training to do what I do and I deserved to be paid the going rate. Photographers have to earn a living, feed their family’s and pay school fees etc.
