This is a comment by a client at the end of his headshot session at our studio: “I am calling my son to tell him, “I had my headshots done today, and I have my photos on my iphone and on a usb plug. He also received his headshots from his photographer today after a month and a half wait”.
Whether you are searching for an employee, partner in your firm or a partner in your life, it is often highly likely that the search will be online. The one thing that everyone notices first will be your headshot.
First impressions are extremely important and your profile picture is that first impression in the digital world. A photograph of a person conveys what he/she looks like, which provides information for someone else to judge that individual. An unprofessional photograph may leave the viewer questioning your commitment.
What makes Your Profile Great?
Lighting, composition, posing and creating the expression you need is part of what makes a good portrait great. A great professional portrait should reflect your personality in a natural way, whether it is in studio or on location. Knowing how to work on the image after the shoot, choosing the right photo to reflect your needs, color correction, and subtle retouching to enhance your headshot completes the process.
Headshots In Our Studio or On Location
A Google Review: “I recently spent a 2 hour session with this talented man. He draws from his many years of experience since his first interest as a teenager with a camera gifted to him by his father. Hogop blends his skills in lighting, composition, and editing which he then fashions into the excellent image. He understands the structure of the face and it’s important role in defining one’s humanity. Much like a film director, he helps to create his subject’s expressions to translate them it into the final pleasing result. He is an artist whose attention to detail allows him to attain near perfection. Don’t search for cheap headshots. What you will get from Hagop is truly valuable.” Mo Budak
