You are never too young to have your “corporate” portrait. A fun shoot this afternoon, the aim was a 3 different looks and they are all look fantastic, a great head start knowing the importance of a professional headshot.First impressions are so important and I know that any employer with instantly see that he is a winner. This young man works a part time job while finishing off school, next year he plans to start his study in the world of media. With this in mind a little more fine art editing for his final image and this is my personal favourite, simple and classy with a little edge. I have no doubt this confident young man will do well, all the very best to you in your future.
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.
Quite simply a great Headshot should look like you at your absolute best without being a glamour shot. (unless that’s what you want of course).
The right balance of ensuring you look your best while ensuring the images remain very natural. It is very important that your shots look like you when you meet your clients.
Beginning with a consultation, we get to know each other, I get to know you, who you are and what you do, from here the shoot ideas begin discussing aiming at your shoot to best suit your style and needs.
My passion while creating your headshot is always the same, whether you are a fashion designer or CEO and everything in between, I take great care and skill to create for you the best possible Headshots and make your personal and business photographic branding simply you.
Through coaching and directing you properly throughout the shoot keeping in mind our discussed end result ensuring this make your experience in front of the camera enjoyable, fun and relaxed and enabling your very best photo’s to be easily captured. To create beautiful images we must see them before we shoot.
I shoot using the highest quality cameras and lenses so you can be sure our photography is produced to the highest possible standard while always maintaining a relaxed and fun environment so the best photographs can be captured quickly and with a minimum of fuss.
Retouching is all part of my service,.
No filters and no shortcuts using advanced Photoshop skills,, all our images are finished by hand, subtle skin smoothing, colour correction and adjustments, I place great pride on how your final images are presented to you.
Home based studio on Taylors Hill, Melbourne you have the option of White, Grey or black background along with the right lighting to suit you, keeping it natural and real, Natural light is also available.
Natural light on location, are also lots of fun and a bit more spontaneous which can really help produce a great looking headshot, this kind of headshot can be less static and a little more down to earth if that is what you prefer.
Natural light has a beautiful and soft quality about it, using your environment also ensures that your images are unique and reflects your company and this makes your image pop.
Q. What do I wear?
A. Wardrobe choice is an important part of a successful Headshot and can give your shots that little bit of edge. As a general rule darker colours and simple necklines are better and it is good to keep it as simple as possible. It is good however to consider a few different looks for more specific personalities and services. When using a colour headshot try wearing colours that work well with your skin tone and eye colour. You will be surprised how much difference certain colours will make your shots really stand out.
Lastly think about items of clothing that you love wearing and make you feel great and bring them to your headshot session. A favourite jacket, scarve, shirt or jumper etc will inject a bit of your own personal style into the shot and ensure your headshots show you looking and feeling great.
Q. DO I NEED A MAKEUP ARTIST FOR MY PHOTO SHOOT?
A.People often ask whether they need a makeup artist and really there is no set rule. My experience has found that to get the best headshot and have a great shoot its best to leave nothing to chance so if your budget permits it is a great idea to have a professional do it for you. The right balance of making you look your best while ensuring the shots remain very natural. It is very important that your shots look like you. A professional hair stylist should also be considered for the very same reason.

Updating my self portrait while i wait for my next shoot.
Did you meet Phil earlier?
What a lovely gentle guy with a wicked smile and an infectious giggle!!!!
Quite often clients come back to me long after the shoot wanting more images, thankfully only once for loss of images, for this reason I archive for up to 3 years (free of charge).
This is usually discussed at consultation time as per requirements.
Although I may have your digital files safely archived, I strongly recommend that you back your images up to 3 times, giving a copy to a family or friends to store for you away from your home.
One of the reasons for archiving family shoots is some family are still growing and may want the same look and feel, our reference for your next shoot.
A print for Grandma? or more images of the day for yourself.
When booking your shoot please chat to me about your needs and I will be happy to accommodate.
