Portrait vs Headshot


I love this portrait that we created at the end of his headshot session. It really brings to light the full personality that he shared with with me during our time together. Personally, I love a portrait that stops me and leaves me space to imagine. This is the type of photograph that begs to be hung on a wall, celebrated by those who know and love him.

Now, let’s talk about business for a moment.

Your headshot/business portrait is a representation of how you want to be seen in business. It communicates your value and most importantly, it makes you recognisable when you meet people in person for the first time. Connection and authentic representation is where it’s at. Eye contact in person is really important . Eye contact in your headshot is really important too. Without eye contact, you run the risk of conveying disinterest and detachment.
We’ve all met that person at a networking event – you know the one – that person who’s interested in who else might be in the room when they’re shaking your hand 🙄. Don’t let your headshot give off those vibes.
