3 ways to decide if it's time for a new business headshot

1. You meet a new business contact for coffee and they walk right past you. 

Has it been more than three years since your last professional business portrait? If so, chances are it is time to refresh your business photo. Some of us wait a decade or more for a new Denver business headshot and that is just too long! Keep it current. And don't worry...it'll look great!

2. Your LinkedIn photo use was taken on vacation

Listen, a good shot is a good shot. But (does there always need to be a but?!) even if you look like fantastic, it is sending the wrong message. It is casual rather than professional. Subtleties matter in portraits and it's best to have some separation between your personal shots and business photos. If you live in the greater Denver area and are looking for a business headshot photographer consider giving us a call.

3. Your business headshot was taken quickly with little regard for outfit, hair, and expression

Business headshots are about the little things. Do you look confident and competent in your business portrait? Is your shirt wrinkled? Do you look friendly and approachable? Do you appear to be an expert in your field? Taking the time to plan your shot is critical to a successful business headshot. I have a team in place that can help ensure all the pieces are put in place so your headshot is perfect. In addition to hiring me I can recommend clothing stylists as well as hair and makeup professionals that can join us on set.
