Someone just asked me why anyone would want a photographic portrait.
A combination of lockdown-addled faculties and middle-aged woolly-mindedness meant I didn’t snap back with the kind of clear answer you should expect from a portrait photographer, so I’ve sat down and created a little list (we all love a good list)…
1/ To update your professional profile.
A good quality headshot
- conveys your professionalism to potential clients.
- portrays approachability, making people feel more comfortable about approaching or connecting with you
- makes you stand out from the rest
- boosts your self-confidence
You don’t have to be a celeb or CEO to have a great professional portrait anymore – they are affordable for everyone.
2/ To celebrate a significant event in your life
Birthdays, anniversaries, graduations, pregnancy etc spring to mind
3/ To capture your children as they grow up fast
Ok, time has probably dragged while homeschooling but your darlings will not look the same in a year’s time.
4/ To up-date your family photos to hang on the wall
5/ Dating site profiles.
I’ve helped bring success to men and women aged from 35 to 70.
6/ It just makes you feel good!
A great photograph that shows you at your best makes is something to be treasured
I really wish I had a decent one of myself!
And finally, I know most people hate having their picture taken, but a good photographer will know how to relax you and even enable you to enjoy the experience. Give it a go!
