The eye is naturally attracted to the brightest part of an image. Great headshot photographers make sure these are your best parts.
Let me show you.
Is Goldilocks trademarked? I've just added a 'not too big, not too small' package for those looking for something 'just right'. Take a peek.
All hair colours accepted!
I get that question a lot. Typically followed by "but this other guy only charges $99 for a headshot session, why are you charging $800". That might be their advertised price, but you'll be paying a lot more by the time you're done.

You're thinking it's time for a new headshot, but you're not quite sure how to choose the right photographer. If price is your only concern, read no further. Go to Walmart. It's all good.
If you're looking for something a bit more upscale, how do you decide? Easy. Start by looking at their portfolio. You'll notice quality when you see it.
I am a photographer, not a lawyer. This is a complex issue with compelling arguments on both sides.
This is my view as seen through the lens of a headshot photographer.
Buying a pen does not make you a writer. Buying a car does not make you a Formula-1 driver.
Buying a camera does not make you a photographer.

I know. It seems like such a boring choice. Life is full of colour, let's use some!
Nope. Not in the background. Especially not for your professional headshot. And don't even think about using bricks, sailboats, shrubs or stuffies either.
I get this question a lot, typically a day or two after a session.
The client has shared their new headshot with family and friends, and someone inevitably remarks "Hey, they cut off the top of your head - even I can do better than that!"
