What is stopping you using a headshot photographer?
Is it the cost? Some headshot photographers charge a lot for their service and that is just for them to turn up. I don’t charge a sitting fee or any costs up front so all you pay for are the photographs that you need. Find out more about my headshot photography.
The other thing that puts a lot of people off using a professional headshot photographer though is nerves.
Are you the one who is a bit camera shy? Does the thought of sitting in front of a photographer fill you with fear? Don’t panic, you are not alone. Actors, performers, singers, dancers and corporate role models all feel a bit akward in front of the camera. To be honest it is usually not these people who perform best during a headshot photography session.
Why? People who ‘perform’ have an image that they portray. To me though the best headshots are natural ones, the photographs that show the real you. It dosen’t help with a headshot if you are trying to be something that you are not.
So how can you make sure you feel relaxed in front of the camera?
Plan your session before it starts. Don’t leave everything until the last minute. Think about what you are going to wear. Make it something that you feel comfortable in but also makes you feel good. Have a look around social media or on other website and find a style that you will feel comfortable with. Perhaps even think of doing something quirky that shows the real you (I once did a session on a trampolene).
Don’t fake it. People can tell when you are faking it. Be the real you. If you fake it in front of your headshot photographer what are people going to think when they meet you in real life?
If you are still not sure speak to your headshot photographer, ask them for advice. Get to know them so they can help you to feel relaxed.
