You never have a second chance to make a first impression…..and that is why I had to get a new head shot. I had a headshot done back in the winter. It was a cold rainy day and I had a terrible cold…thus a red nose. Every time I look at the picture, I feel like I am looking at a little girl wearing her dad’s suit jacket. It just didn’t look like me. Well…it didn’t look like the me that I want others to see. I have a few speaking engagements coming up and all require my headshot for the promotional materials. My thoughts regarding my current photo were confirmed when a colleague commented that the photo didn’t convey my spunk. Yes- I took that comment as a sign. Time for a new photo.
So I approached the BEST photographer I know…who doesn’t normally do head shots…and I begged him to take my photo. Well…I didn’t really beg, he gladly agreed to help me out. Within 10 minutes, he had captured the spunk! We worked to get a very professional photo, yet a photo that is edgy and spunky. Afterall, as a creative, it’s important that my photo show this.
