Pros vs. Joes – South Jersey Headshots

We live in a world where imagery is can have a tremendous impact.  With so many forms of electronic communication, we’re always connected, and it’s never been more important to harness the power of your personal brand.  One of the keys to this is having a great headshot, and having a polished profile image has become so important for so many people.

Building Your Personal Brand

Whether you network professionally on a site like LinkedIn, have your profile on a website, or even print your photo on a business card, you need a great headshot.  Think about it… How many truly successful folks do you see who present themselves with a photo taken by a cellphone in a hallway?  Yup, exactly… you can do better!  You need a great headshot!  Don’t be one of those folks that would make you shake your head when scrolling around LinkedIn!

Exceptional Headshots for Exceptional People

With this in mind, we thought it would be a good idea to do some comparisons.  Originally, the idea was to show some images to illustrate just how important it is to have a professional headshot, but then we thought… Let’s really drive the point home.  We’re going to show you just how much impact OUR images can have.  First up… Our shot vs the cell phone shot!

Business Executive Headshot

You may remember Business Executive Kathleen from our post about her earlier in the year.  Kathleen was awesome, and her session was a lot of fun.  She had been putting off getting her professional headshot for a while, but eventually decided to come and visit us!  She was even nice enough to send us her old shot so that we could do a comparison!  Very cool!  Kathleen went with an image that really showed off her confident, executive presence.  Here’s a look at her “before” shot, and her awesome new headshot by us!  (FYI… we put the good stuff up first!)

Yikes… the “before” shot! (At least she has a great smile!)

Round 2: S18 vs. The Cookie-Cutter Pro

Alright, so I’ll admit we don’t exactly know who photographed Erin for the before shot, but the photo was professionally done and just fell flat.  You may remember Erin’s Headshot Session from a few weeks back.  Erin was absolutely one of the coolest people I’ve had the pleasure of working with, and has since become a really cool friend.  She initially reached out to us looking for a headshot with a little bit more personality to better fit her profession.  After meeting her, I can tell you that she’s bursting with awesome personality, and we really wanted to bring that out in her photos!  Here’s Erin’s “before” and “after” shots, starting with the good stuff!
