The value of a great headshot

Are you a bit embarrassed about your profile picture that you use on Twitter or your website? Do you cringe a little when asked to send a photo of yourself to someone? If the answer is yes, then read on!


There are so many costs in running your own business that often getting professional headshots taken is something that gets put to the bottom of the to-do list. I wanted to write this post to ensure that it goes right to the top of your list in 2011!


I could bang on for ages about the value of a great headshot but we all know that a picture is worth a thousand words so I’ll let the below example say it all for me instead!


This is the lovely Paula Trovalusci of Curtain Lab in Kingston-upon-Thames. On the left is the photo she used prior to our shoot and on the right is one of the shots from our headshot session.

I think this demonstrates perfectly the value of a great headshot. This is a nice snap of Paula on the left and she looks her usual lovely self, but see how amazing she looks in the one on the right! And it portrays a much more professional image for her business too.


Here is another image from our session. She’s too gorgeous to show you only one! 

A big thank you to Paula for letting me use these ‘before’ and ‘after’ shots of her! 


I am on a mission to ensure more local business owners have gorgeous new headshots like Paula’s so I have a very special offer for this January and February only. In fact it’s so special that I’m not going to say the price on this blog. You need to email me to find out!


This is how it will work. We meet in an agreed location within 20 minutes drive of Surbiton. Kingston town centre is great for a more urban feel, or Bushy Park for some lovely scenic backdrops. We can have a coffee and a chat about what you want to achieve from the images, then we’ll spend some time looking for the best light and backdrops to create your stunning new headshots. I know how limited time is as a business owner (especially if you have kids!) so don’t worry, I won’t spend hours trying to find the perfect light! 45 minutes should be fine to capture the headshot you’ve always wanted! 


Then within a week of our shoot, you’ll have an online gallery of 10 images to view. With the help of your family and friends, you then have 5 days to choose your favourite 2 images, which are sent to you digitally along with a licence to use online (the copyright remains with me). You can then show them off to the world! Use the images as your profile pic on Twitter, Facebook, on your website, blog and in any press articles in the future. Additional digital images are available to purchase if you can’t stick to 2! 


The only condition of this amazing offer is that our session has to take place on a Wednesday or a Friday in January or February. I only have 5 sessions available so make sure you contact me soon! 


I look forward to creating some fantastic headshots with you!
