In today’s social media driven world, taking a traditional head-and-shoulders headshot just doesn’t cut it anymore. One of the things you can do to make your business stand out from the rest is to make your business headshots stand out from the rest! You are your most powerful marketing tool so why not make your headshots unique and custom fit to your brand.
Let your Personality Shine Through
Be as comfortable as possible during your shoot. The more comfortable you are, the easier it’ll be to let your personality shine in front of the camera. Start with comfortable clothing choices. Bring several of your go-to, confidence boosting outfits. Wear shoes that you’re comfortable in. You want your clothing choice to help convey your brands message while showing a part of what makes you…..you.
Choose a Comfortable Setting
Everyone has seen the traditional business headshot. While that shot definitely has it’s place, try to make your headshots unique by taking the shoot outside. Adding natural light and natural surroundings to your image adds to the goal of making your headshots unique. Choose a couple of settings that fit you and your brand so that your images feel natural and not forced. You can also have some shots take in your own workspace. A lawyer might want to use the courthouse steps for his setting while a dentist might want to use a location in or around his office for the shoot.
Think Outside of the “Head and Shoulders” Box
Everyone uses the “head and shoulders” portrait oriented business headshot. Add some variety and make your headshots unique by taking some shots at different angles and positions. Play around with some standing poses as well to incorporate some unique looks in your shoot.
These tips will definitely help draw eyes to your headshots and add that extra touch of personality to your headshots.
