Headshots


What works, what doesn’t, and why you should go pro

Ready for your closeup? Here’s how a headshot can grow your business and make you money

Back in the day, you didn’t get a headshot unless you were an actor or a criminal. Now, of course, there are probably all kinds of places where you need to plaster your smiling face.

But getting an actual headshot photographer? Why spend money on that when your phone almost certainly has a camera function?

I’m going to show you why your headshot matters, and how to get a really great one.

Quirky Branded Headshot Beverly Sherratt

MEET BEVERLY.  SHE WENT QUIRKY.

If headshots were other marketing tools

So imagine you’re at a meeting, conference, Metallica gig or wherever you go to meet contacts. A guy comes up to and says he’s a lawyer. Result! You need a lawyer for your ongoing neighbourhood dispute over your 60-foot, dinosaur-shaped gazebo.

So you ask for more information, and he happens to have his brochure with him. You’re taken aback to see that it’s written in crayon. On toilet paper.

When you ask him about it, he says “why would I spend money on fancy brochures? I have crayons and bog roll at home?”

Crazy, right? But it’s exactly what you’re doing when you take your Linkedin picture in a darkened room with a smartphone.

How headshot photography grows your personal brand

First of all, ugh, I know. Sounds like I’m auditioning for the Apprentice. But no matter what you do for a living, your personal brand is a thing, and getting it right will make a huge difference to how you’re perceived.

Your personal brand is agency-speak for: “what do people think about, when they think about you? What qualities pop into people’s heads when your name comes up in conversation?

Are you professional? Funny? Passionate? Fabulous?

Whatever you’d like to make people think of, good quality headshot photography can help cultivate it.

Let’s Talk

You might want to talk first about your Headshots.  Let’s get some strategies and creative idea’s down first.  You can book to have a Face-to-Face or Cyber Cocktail with me.

Here is my calendar.  Just flick through the next few months and you can see which times and places suit you best.  I like to ensure we get the best out of any meeting so I ask that you send me where you are at right now by sending my the current headshot you have in the quick upload option.  We then agenda a couple items together.

Oh and meetings before 4pm are usually accompanied by coffee or tea.  Then if you book in for 4pm after, I’m into cocktail hour.  If we are doing a Skype or Zoom we can sync up our clocks (if we are crossing International Timezones) and agree what is best beforehand together.

Set your timezone, and then find the right time for an appointment by clicking on the purple markers.
