The images below were taken in my North Raleigh Studio just off of Six Forks Road.
I recently did a professonal headshot for someone who told me a story of trying to do his own headshot. He said that he was thinking ..."It's just a headshot. How hard can it be?" It was that statement that inspired me to write this short blog post and title it... "It's Just A Headshot or Is It? Professional Headshots Make a Difference"
In today's non-step selfie revolution, there is still a need to have a professional photographer do your headshot. Notice, I said professional photographer because there are lots of people with a nice digital camera that are still not able to produce a professional looking headshot that will work for a tradeshow, conference speaking engagement, corporate website, Linkedin, etc.
A professional headshot taken in a studio setting or even professionally done outside is a minor financial investment that could make a difference in your next career move or someone doing business with you. Other than words on the page, your headshot is likely the main visual first impression that someone will see of you. If that visual is a selfie or other poor quality shot, it could make a difference in how you are perceived. A professional headshot really does reflect YOUR PERSONAL BRAND.
I have mentioned this in other posts about headshots but will say it again here. Whether you choose me or another Raleigh area photographer, a professional headshot will likely fall into the $100 to $200 range which again is a minor financial investment for your professional image. There are some photographers in the Raleigh market that are less than $100 and some that are more than $200, but budgeting between $100 to $200 will have you pretty well covered when shopping for a local professional photographer.
Remember, a headshot is not just a headshot. It's YOUR PERSONAL BRAND and may be the first visual representation someone has an opportunity to see. Professional headshots do make a difference.
