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Nowadays, an outdated headshot is particularly noticeable because camera quality is increasing exponentially.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 When a user comes to your site, it is obvious by the quality of the photo whether or not your headshot is outdated.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.

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!
