Dallas Headshot Photographer

We’ve all been there. The world moves at such a breakneck pace, and it feels like if you don’t keep running you fall behind. This Dallas headshot photographer definitely feels the pressure of keeping up, keeping fresh and keeping current. If you are like a lot of people out there, your headshot can be a great place to start. As if being hip wasn’t reason enough, here’s five reasons you should get a new headshot:

    1. It’s been 10 years since you had a headshot done

      Well, maybe 15. Could be 20? Yes, it’s ok to admit it’s been that long since you last had your headshot. I’m a very honest Dallas headshot photographer and promise I won’t tell anyone, at least until I need a new blog idea… Just kidding. Maybe. That hairstyle you had may no longer be in style, so it’s probably a good idea to get something a little more current. Plus I’m sure you look different than you did 15 years ago, so you want people to recognize you. You wouldn’t use a photo that you took in college (on multiple grounds) so let’s keep things current.

        2. You made a career/company change

          You have entered a new season in your life, or perhaps have begun a new adventure. Whether it’s moving around in your industry or beginning your own business, it is the perfect time to make a great impression and start things off with a new look. As a Dallas headshot photographer, I have had the opportunity to photograph people at all different stages in their business lives, and get to work with a lot of people who are getting a business or brand off the ground.

            3. Two words: Social Media

              If you have ever forayed onto the Internet, and the fact you are reading this Dallas headshot photographer blog is pretty convincing evidence, you know that there is a lot of content out there. You also know that in this day and age, you have to put a lot of content out there yourself. Whether it’s for your website, Facebook, LinkedIn profile or any other number of social sites, you have plenty of spaces that require a photograph. Now of course you could use that cool selfie with you and your pet rock, but given the amount of eyeballs the photo could be privy to, don’t you want something really solid?

                4. That background is not working, and the lighting is pretty bad too

                  Let’s face it; some photographs just don’t quite line everything up. The light is a bit too harsh on your face, or it’s too flat and doesn’t have any dimension. Maybe you have a background that is really dark, or just looks completely outdated. If you can agree with either situation, it’s probably time for a new headshot. Getting a new photo taken by a Dallas headshot photographer gives you the opportunity to have contemporary lighting in a fresh setting, which makes you look very cutting edge.

                    5. Your last headshot…Well, you just don’t like it

                      Maybe it was the photographer, or maybe it was you. Either way, you do not like your headshot. Every time you look at it, immediately a distinct shudder runs through your body as your mind harkens back to school picture day. Remember? It was the one where your dog Skip ate your homework…right after chewing through your favorite shirt. A car, which was right in front of the school bus, hit a world record puddle that seemed to land entirely on you. The stress caused an acne breakout, and in summary, you burned that year’s yearbook.

                      My point? It’s time for a new headshot.
