Headshot, strictly speaking, is a portrait in which the focus is on the face of a person. Usually the term is applied usually for professional profile images on social media, images used on online dating profiles, the ‘about us page’ or a corporate website and promotional pictures of actors, models, and authors. But a headshot can be more than just a functional photo, it can offer a glimpse on a person’s soul through its eyes. Even when we are just looking for a functional photo we should worry about the narrative about ourselves we are putting into the world, what can this kind of image tell about us? Are we strong? Do we look confident? All that narrative is built not only with the face but with the colors and light, in seconds we are sharing a lot about who we are. And that can have an enormous impact in our lives, jobs, dating, and also how the ones dear to us will remember us.
I can help you to tell your story with a special portrait, it can be a wonderful way of gifting a loving one or yourself. You may want to celebrate something with a special portrait. And for those cases I also recommend having the printed version. There is something in the experience of being in front of a print with its rich colors that make the online version a sad phantom of what it can be. I care about printing quality, so I take care that they are only printed in high-quality paper, archival, which means they are going to last for a long time and you don’t have to worry about it.
