THE IMPORTANCE OF A PROFESSIONAL HEADSHOT
It’s not ‘just’ a Headshot!

With social media and our online presence playing such a huge role today in the success of our businesses, it is now more important than ever to be seen often, and in the best possible light.

Sometimes we try and short cut this critical element by looking at our headshot as redundant, and as an unnecessary expense. But we should actually be looking at it as an opportunity to portray an image to our potential clients, to share our brand, and to show ‘the face behind the business’. We forget that when potential customers are looking at our businesses online, they are also looking at who we are and how we conduct business. They want to make sure that we are serious about quality and good customer service. If the photography on our website is done with a point-n-shoot and on-camera flash against a plain wall with a dark shadow around our head, it sends the wrong message. It shows lack of professionalism. And if we don’t appear to care about our own personal image, then why should our potential customers believe that we would use higher standards for the product or service we are offering?
The physical side of taking a ‘proper’ headshot requires the usage of standard professional equipment- camera, lenses, lighting, and photo editing software. But more importantly than that (about 100x more important) is the intangible aspect – Experience. Without the knowledge of how to effectively use camera gear, lighting (even daylight), or to be able to trouble shoot problems should they arise, leaves you back at square one.

Having a natural and trained artistic eye for posing and directing people in order to achieve the individual’s optimal look, is probably on the top of my list. Everyone is different and needs to be photographed a certain way according to their shape, hair color, gender, skin, and profession. Knowing what lighting to use, in what direction, with each face shape, makes all the difference in the world between an okay shot, and an amazing portrait. A good professional photographer will suggest the proper clothing, analyze the model’s face and then pose and light them accordingly. The last thing to consider is that depending on your profession or what the shot will be used for, you might want to add a little personality to your portrait. Showing your audience a little bit of you, will help them make a connection and start a bond before they even meet you.
How do we want to be seen? Do we want our audience to see us as real professionals with high standards, or are we satisfied with showing them our ‘mug-shot’?

Incredible Smile….


Sweet little nun in Yangon, Bogyoke Aung San Market.smile

Is this the most incredible smile or what?!

Nothing grabs my attention faster than a beautiful heartfelt smile. These are the kind of smiles that let me know i am in exactly the right place and time. The first thing i noticed about the Burmese people is their wellness to smile, some just go for it, others will wait until they have caught your eyes, looking a little shy, woman and children will often wave at you as you pass by in a tut tut, on a train or anytime they feel like it as a reaction or they go first. Even the blokes will give you that smile that gives you that universal “welcome” Really lovely people, kind polite and all but ready to help.

Kyauk Kalap


hpa-an_kyauk-kalap_monastery_burma_myanmar

Standing proud in the middle of a small, artificial lake is Kyauk Kalap, Hpa An, Myanmar, a tall finger of sheer rock mounted by one of the most unlikely pagodas in Myanmar. It is  a working monastery and is closed every day from 12pm to 1pm to allow the monks to meditate. From the top you can see great views of Mt Zwegabin, a great place for a sunset.

Saddam Cave


saddar cave one of the highlights of my trip legend did I do it jumping a fence? Hiking? Climbing 777 steps? Walking on rock platforms? No slipped off a 1″ step I took it easy for a day, iced it for the swelling, strapped it up, didn’t think too much of it, a 20 minute walk in a bat cave, in the dark, up and down, under the bridge as it was being repaired, bare foot took almost an hour but omg what lies at the end of it!!!! An oasis, a green lagoon with mountains in the distance, I only took a few shots just before the last steep steps thinking I had to walk back instead we hopped on a canoe through rice field around the and through the cave and a 10 minute walk back, as we walk in the pay a couple of monks one with a mike announced your #country, he laughed at my reaction, well I felt like miss #universe lol so 2 X-rays later I wait, fracture? #sigh

So it took awhile to get my driver to get off the tourist track and out meeting the real people, these little guys have been taken in and taken care of, eduction, food and shelter, they seem fairly happy and there were lots of giggles and smiles when me and my girls quietly sat in on their class. In the midst of it, my heart hurts my head spins, what can I do, i am just one person and my own to raise, i get overwhelmed with how much i would like to do, then breathe deeply and remember that little is a good start. Travel, open your eyes and heart, it’s not about thinking how good you got it, it’s about how we can make it better for others, together.


No gift is too small

Sunset in Bagan


bs

A great way to end another amazing day, this time no pagoda climbing, but up the view point tower in Bagan, Myanmar, 360 degree view and not overcrowded. An orange glow on all smiley faces watching as the sunsets …

Sunrise in Bagan.


silvia tomarchio photography_bagan_burma_myanmar.jpg

What an amazing way to welcome a new day! Sitting on top of just one of the 2000 or so Pagoda’s in Bagan, Myanmar. A few days in so I was still on Melbourne time and easy enough to get up, I woke up one of my girls, yes the one that will venture out with me with her eyes closed. A little scary getting up while it was still a little dark, everyone excited waiting for the hot air balloons and sunrise. Truly amazing sight, rumour has it that the Prime mister was on board the first one released on this day.
