Research says all it takes is a tenth of a second to form an impression of a stranger from their face. At The Headshot Works we want you to look great for that impression.

The Internet has forever changed the way we do business, socialize and entertain ourselves. The Internet has also made visual communication essential in every aspect of our lives. Everyone will find that a quality, professionally photographed headshot gives you an advantage on social media, in business and in your personal communications. Here’s why.

• You’ll be empowered. When you are photographed by a professional photographer who knows lighting and how to pose your particular face you’ll have a photo that you’re proud of. When you’re proud of how you look it lifts your confidence and enhances your motivation.

• You’ll deliver a great first impression. As we mentioned, it takes less than a second for a stranger to develop an opinion of you from your photo. The research also shows that that first impression lingers on, even after spending lots of time with you. Human nature will be working in your favor when you create a positive first impression with your professionally photographed portrait.

• You’ll be more memorable. Most people have trouble remembering names but most of us remember a face. You’ve surely been in situation where you encounter someone who’s met you before who can’t place your name but remembers meeting you by your face.

• It shows your personality. A photograph with the right expression can convey the real you. Employers, casting directors and social media friends want to know who you are inside. A great photo of you can tell the viewer that you are friendly, honest, earnest and much more. 

• It shows professionalism. A good headshot makes you look and feel professional. Compared to those who use a cell phone photo as their calling card image you’ll demonstrate you’re someone who takes their work, relationships and themselves seriously and with respect.

Incredible work! I was thoroughly impressed with how these photos turned out. John’s work shows in the angles and posturing to get everything right. He made me appear confident, friendly and professional I didn’t have to think!

I recommend The Headshot Works VERY highly. I was looking for a photographer to do headshots and group photos of my ten person staff…I have nothing but compliments for John’s work.
