WHY one should get professional business portraits, and keep them updated is easy. Whether updating a business portrait, preparing for a speaking engagement, or getting your first headshot, and editorial or professional studio style portrait headshot taken, you want to put your best face forward. Project the confidence and professionalism you want to be remembered for with a headshot portrait by Anjeanette Photography, Phoenix.

Nowadays, an outdated headshot is particularly noticeable because camera quality is increasing exponentially. Consider it this way–your profile picture taken in 2004 is most likely lower quality than what you could take on your iPhone today. When a user comes to your site, it is obvious by the quality of the photo whether or not your headshot is outdated. This leads customers to one of two thoughts. Either they think that your business lacks the resources to update your headshots and improve your brand, or they think that you are lazy and lack the foresight to consider the importance of your headshot. Either way, it’s a lose-lose situation. Avoid that negative reputation altogether by simply changing your headshot every once and while to reflect new camera quality.

Your headshot makes you real in the virtual world. Yet some people continue to leave their headshot blank, or they don’t take it seriously when they do upload one. I have seen numerous headshots that actually make me want to avoid the person behind the headshot rather than create a connection with them. The best headshots are created by a professional photographer. So schedule a shoot – it’s worth the investment. Here’s some advice for making your headshot a valuable asset.

Rylee Mcguire Student Doctor | Peoria Arizona Headshots | Anjeanette Photography Phoenix

Had a great session with Student Doctor Rylee McGuire here in Peoria, Arizona. As a medical student Rylee is interested in osteopathic medicine, a distinct branch of medicine in the U.S. emphasizing the interrelated unity of all systems in the body, each working with the other to heal in times of illness. She has a calm easy demeanor and a fantastic smile, which makes me so happy for her future patients!

They will be in excellent hands.

A Student Doctor’s application headshot is one the most important photos of your career, it puts a face and shows attention to detail the evaluating doctors look for in your application. It’s not about how you physically ‘look’- it’s about the effort you took to get more than an easy snapshot on a phone. Your grades and work are most important obviously, but if the decision is between two applicants you have to consider anything that can give them reason to think twice about you. The fact that you took the extra step to obtain a professional, polished image, at your time and expense adds value to your application presentation! You want to show you always bring your best- I can help.

Having a high-quality headshot when applying for a medical residency program is vital to being accepted.

According to Forbes magazine, regardless of the business you are in, a blurry, low-quality or poorly cropped photo can convey sloppiness and a lack of attention to detail.

We realize that there’s absolutely no relationship between practicing medicine and having a good headshot, but many viewers equate a bad headshot to poor service, e.g. “if this doctor doesn’t care what his/her headshot looks like, why would they care about my problem?” A quality headshot makes a physician more personable. Patients want to relate to their doctors, which in turn fosters a sense of trust.

Zoe | Actors Headshot | Phoenix Professional Headshot by Anjeanette Photography

Getting an acting gig starts by getting in the door of a casting director’s office. Regardless of how great your acting skills are if you don’t have a headshot to use as your calling card, no one might ever know you exist. Make sure to give your headshot the attention it deserves.

Approachable, energetic, and charismatic smile- a winning combination to make your best first impression. And everything your looking for in an acting or modeling headshot!

Zoe has all of these characteristics and more, her “Anne Hathaway” smile is cool and vibrant, only surpassed by a fantastic laugh and bubbly personality. She is sure to take her dreams to reality with her determination, and I look forward to seeing her light up the world someday!

Zoe and her family approached me for a great headshot as suggested by their agency- and I always say great kids = great portraits. A headshot from Anjeanette Photography gives people an idea of your personality before they meet you, especially important when social media marketing and brand presence influences a casting director or agency’s decision to hire! These portraits are used to quickly decide whom to hire for work in a production or campaign. Talent agents use these photos as a way to quickly decide if they want to work with an actor as a client. Therefore, models & actors of every level require an excellent professional photo to be taken seriously. A pro headshot is a simple first audition!

Your headshot should show casting directors both the intangibles and tangibles of you as an actor: how you look on camera, your essence, your energy, and personality.
— PIYALI SYAM, for Backstage.com

WHAT TO WEAR TO AN ACTING HEADSHOT

You should stand out- not your outfit. Keep outfits and clothing simple with neutral tones like classic greys and blacks, or high contrast colours that flatter your complexion. Avoid busy distracting patterns. Freshly pressed, properly fitted, clean clothes of course!

Makeup should be neutral and minimal so that agencies and directors can see YOU.

Remember its a simple photo. Expert lighting of your facial structure is important- your personal fashion style is not (save that for a different meeting!)

When deciding whether or not to smile or not I advise thinking about what roles or campaigns you intend to pursue. Do some research and be ready “in character”. I take a variety of big smiles to neutral and intense looks- but I have to say people are absolutely drawn to a big warm smile! When you book with me your sessions include three edited images so you may choose a variety. However, you can also go ahead and additionally purchase all the images on your finished portrait gallery so that you have lots of different looks on hand!

Having an updated headshot is crucial. The first that comes to mind is social media – your avatar is the first thing people see on your profile. Or, your current employer could request a headshot for their website or as part of a blog or social media post about you or written by you. Special company announcements or press releases may go out that require your headshot as well. Sending along a selfie or having your friend take a quick photo against a blank wall not only shows lack of preparation but a lack of professionalism as well. Having a high quality headshot ready to send at a moment’s notice shows you think ahead and represents who you are and your personality.

Beauty is power; a smile is its sword.

Headshot Arizona professional business Peoria Az Anthem Glendale Az high school portrait photographer Anjeanette Photography Phoenix corporate portraits acting headshots scottsdale professional

Had a fantastic session with Arrowhead Family Dentistry last week for Doctor's and Staff headshots! Everyone did an amazing job. I was so impressed by the relaxed and comfortable atmosphere- I usually have a bit of dental anxiety. Ok, I get a lot of dental office anxiety to the extent I get worried about even going to dentists offices! But everyone in the office was so easy going and friendly I was completely at ease.

Recently the Arrowhead Family has grown- new doctors, Drs. George and Natalia Hariri have joined Dr Grace Heir at the practice. Dr. Georige and Dr. Natalia were born and raised in Tucson, AZ and moved to the Glendale area to pursue their doctorate of dentistry degrees at Midwestern University.

These dentists all have the most gorgeous smiles, of course! Could anyone doubt it?
So glad Doctor's Natalia, George, and Grace from the Arrowhead Family Dentistry team choose Anjeanette Photography for headshots.

Paulo | Acting Headshots Phoenix | Anjeanette Photography Professional Portraits Arizona

Your headshot is for everything, it is your calling card. It will, and should, be the cornerstone of your marketing materials: your face will literally be the face of your website, casting profiles, postcards, résumé. Your business cards and postcards should always have your headshot printed on them.

While the term headshot is common in the acting, real estate, book author fields for promotion- not everyone in business use a corporate portrait as a reflection of professional character although they should! It's not just for marketing- it is a deliberate choice, of the career-oriented and myself, to create a portrait designed to put more effort and significance into how your work is perceived. 

Not a cropped phone snapshot from a friends wedding, or a selfie that while nicely lit and hitting all your angles are too casual. Those do not covey the perception that you're qualified. 

Say your scrolling through a Linked In “people to discover” list, who would you hire? Not based on attractiveness- but who looks trustworthy and professionally competent? Who looks like they put significant effort into their portrait- what would be an employee or company you would trust- the selfie or the professional headshot? Its the digital age and people WILL see your photo- you can control how others regard and appreciate you.

And because I have been crafting and improving my modern headshot since 2008, I already put the “significant effort” into Modern Business Portrait Headshots so you don’t have to! Including outfit and styling suggestions, even posing and expression coaching, in a positive way to help attain career goals.

Schedule with Anjeanette Photography, Phoenix and I’ll help you present your reliable reputation. You want YOUR portrait to be a visual representation of your businesses excellent reputation. I can help.
