I can’t remember where I heard it, but the definition that I like for ‘Photogenic’ is when your self-confidence outweighs your insecurities. So basically, when you are being yourself, and not thinking about how you look is when you look the most attractive. Everyone is capable of looking great in pictures, it just takes the right photographer who is willing to push people through the walls they’ve built around themselves.
Having a headshot that represents your personality is necessity for anyone that cares about their reputation. Social media is inescapable, and everyone has the ability to find out who you are with a few simple searches. Your headshot is the first impression people will have before meeting you. It takes less than 1 second for the viewer to make a judgment about who you are, and what you’re like. It’s your headshot’s job to make sure that impression is a positive one.
This is where my work separates itself from the rest of the headshot photographers in Chicago. Every single person I have ever photographed needs guidance on what to do in front of the camera. Having your picture taken is a very forced and unnatural experience. It’s the photographer’s job to create an atmosphere that you feel safe to be yourself in. I will help take your mind off having your picture taken through my direction, and crazy banter. This will allow us to capture natural reactive expressions. These moments are when you are the most relaxed and honest. This is how we capture your personality. You will leave with the skills to be able to ‘own it’ in front of any camera for the rest of you career.
Liking a headshot photographer’s pictures isn’t half as important as liking the actual photographer. If you and your photographer do not jive, you won’t be able to be yourself around them. That tension will show in your shots. You are trusting them with your most important marketing tool. You only have a few hours to get the shots you need. Take the time to have a conversation on the phone with them, or set up a consultation. Most photographers will do these for free. Ask questions. Get a feel for who they are, and how they work. Find out how they direct their clients. This is HUGE. Chances are, you aren’t a model and have no idea what to do in front of a camera. It’s the photographers responsibility to coach you towards the shots you need.
No matter what your profession…you WILL be judged by your image. Mike will help you look like the confident, approachable, and interesting professional you are!
Being ‘photogenic’ is a learned skill, and you’re going to learn the secrets to own it in front of any camera for the rest of your life.
