Stepping out of the studio for creative headshots

Studio headshots are great images to have as part of your web presence but what if you could have a portrait that gave the viewer a little more information about who you are and what you like?  This is why I love creative headshots for professionals and non-professionals.  We photograph you in locations that have a connection to who you are or what you do.

Visiting the Farmer’s Market

When Althea approached me with an interest in headshots, it was pretty easy to decide on a location.  She works as a dietitian and feeding therapist so spends a lot of time with food.  Healthy eating is a passion of hers so the Strip District was the perfect spot with such great little shops as well as the farmer’s market.

two outfits for a variety of looks

When planning for a creative headshot, I encourage my clients to pick a couple of outfits.  There are a few reasons for that.  First, even something as simple as changing a blazer or jacket can add variety to your images and give you more options for your social media and web platforms.  Second, a complete change of clothes or a change of accessories can change up your mood and energy.  Our clothing has a significant effect on our moods so one outfit can be more serious, while another can be playful.

Creative headshots mean that we can play a little more with the images that we create.  They don’t have to be the typical headshot.  There’s freedom in that creativity.
