Facebook, LinkdIn, Twitter, Tumblr, Instagram, and many other social media sites are fast becoming the first contact a potential client has with you or your company. Having a well made photo of yourself on the profile page is very important; it conveys a message to a prospect faster than the most clever bio you could come up with. And let's face it, attention spans are getting shorter, people will form an opinion on a picture before they invest time in reading all those well chosen words.
You may think that the "selfie" you posted from your phone, while on vacation, with a Mai-Tai in your hand, and dark glasses covering your blood shot party weary eyes is a good way to show your fun loving character. It's not. Keep those pics for your personal FB page.
A good, effective head-shot is clean, simple, and tells the viewer about you in a positive way, quickly and without gimmicks.
So, with the goal of helping people show their best side, I am introducing "Social Media Saturdays". Social Media Saturday is a great opportunity to get a great head-shot for all your web based profiles.
It's simple. Book a profile portrait session with me at my studio on a Saturday between 10:00am and 3:00pm, come in, sit down, I'll snap some photos, we'll have some laughs and that's that part done. The session will take about 20~30 minutes.
After the session I will create a password protected gallery for you with 15 to 20 shots for you to choose from. Once you make your selection, I will edit the photo and email you a web ready image file with two variations, one colour, and one black and white.
Social Media Saturday profile portrait sessions start at $49. This fee includes the session, password protected gallery and one edited file in colour & black and white.
I can do profile head shots on location as well.
So, let's get social!
