Introduce Yourself With a Headshot
Face-to-face meetings are becoming obsolete. Mall-strolling consumers now shop online. The window company that once required an at-your-home quote now uses Google Earth to make an estimate for window replacement. So how do we shake hands and say, “Hi! My name is…?”
Headshots introduce us to our market potential.
Photography will promote your company’s brand like nothing else. And you need more than one image to capture the essence of who you are and what you do. But professional headshots should be your first priority.

Most headshots avoid heavily environmental elements and “loud” backgrounds.
Nothing in a headshot should distract the viewer from your face.
Most important is the photographer’s ability to capture the elements that define who you are.
