In an effort to expand my portfolio, I decided to put more stock into editorial and commercial headhots. What is a commercial headshot? A headshot is a photograph used by actors and actresses in order to get them work, but since we live in a digital era, and everything we do and consume is in a digital form (one way or another) commercial headshots became a very important part of who you are and how the world perceives you.
With Facebook, LinkedIn, Instagram, Snapchat, etc…we are exposed to images all day, day in and day out, thats why commercial editorial or any kind of portrait photography is in high demand these days.
When you are looking for a service or business, what really separates one from the other is their web presence, and with that, their images.
Some people prefer to have a more traditional headshot on a grey backdrop, and other go for a more of a ‘film’ look, usually on a white or grey background and shot horizontally with the subject a bit to the right or to the left. I had many people contacting me in the past couple of months wanting to get a new headshot or portrait and asking if we could do this on-location, or at their environment. These gives the viewer a much better understanding on who you are and what it is that you exactly do. -Check examples below-
One way or another, your social or ‘online’ media presence has to be an accurate representation of who you are. Anybody can snap a picture of you, but if you really are looking to take your image or your company,business, etc to the next level, do yourself a favor and get it done professionally. A professional headshot or portrait photographer will:
- Use professional equipment to get the best quality possible
- Pose you in the most flattering way or showing your best angles
- Get an expression that will truly show who you are (or who you are not)
- Walk you through all these steps in a very conformable way
In addition to this, a professional headshot and portrait photographer will be able to make some editing to the images and help you with the best output and resolution to fit your social media needs and parameters.
Hope this helps and brings some light into the fascinating and sometimes daunting world of getting a new headshot or portrait taken in Chicago and surrounding areas.
