Professional Business Portraits
You’re trying to expand your personal brand to reach more people, but the thought of posing for a professional business portrait is too daunting. (You’re gonna need a lot more coffee.) You’d like a professional photo for your LinkedIn profile, but the thought of sitting still for three hours (or worse, awkwardly shifting your body into positions that make people click their noses) sounds horrible.
The good news for you is that a 3-hour sitting is reserved for beginners hoping to get something good enough to sell. A true photographer should have you finished in under 10 minutes. Yes, 10 minutes!
Does your company have a professional portrait for LinkedIn? (“I’ll put a pin in the profile pic problem until tomorrow.”) It’s a tall order. You don’t want to pay too much, you don’t want to waste time, and you don’t want to look like you’re posing at the Grand Canyon with a rented selfie stick. Finding a high-quality photographer with flexible hours that works with your budget is a complicated, time-consuming task in itself. Introducing Jeffrey Truitt Photography, a commercial photographer in San Antonio.
Your personal brand is built as much on how you present yourself to the world as it is on the quality of your work. (“What you see is what you get.”). But getting professional headshots isn’t cheap. ( “We’re both feeling pressured, but I’m also rushing.”). You need simple ways to expand your wardrobe, try out a bunch of lighting, and showcase yourself in your best light without draining your bank in the process.
When potential career movers and shakers decide to reach out to you, they expect to see professional photos. (“If people ask, I tell them it’s for my blog.”) But getting a clear image of you and all your entrancing qualities takes more than Instagram filters. You need expertise in lighting and posing for headshots, and time away from your current job for photo sessions.
Hire the best professional the first time around and it will pay for itself many times over!
