WHY SHOULD YOU GET A PROFESSIONAL BUSINESS HEADSHOT?
Your Business Headshot is often your first impression to people who want to hire you, work for you, and work with or collaborate with you.
The most important thing to consider when hiring a photographer is their work. If their work isn’t great, you don’t want to risk your job/business/brand on them.
Hire a photographer who specializes in business headshots. Just because a photographer is great at weddings or family portraits does not mean they’ll be great at headshots.
Hire a business headshot photographer who will photograph you in a way that fits your style with a custom setup. Most photographers have a preset lighting/backdrop setup they use on all their clients.
Look at the details: Good lighting and good image retouching are key. Bad lighting and retouching can kill an otherwise good image.
HOW MUCH IS A BUSINESS HEADSHOT WORTH?
Business Headshots aren’t something you can easily put a dollar value on. For some, this makes it easy to think they should just get the cheapest “decent” business headshot they can find.
A lower priced business headshot photographer is typically lower priced for a reason. As with most things, you get what you pay for.
A business headshot is often the first impression people will get about you or your company so you need to make it a good one. This is not where you want to skimp.
The difference in price between a high end custom business headshot and a cheap one is pennies a day over the life of the headshot. Something you’ll easily make back with a new job or new clients.
