What does your exec portrait say about you? 4 Big Mistakes to Avoid….

Years ago I recognized the value of including my bio pic with everything I sent out..resumes. biz cards etc etc.

Here are some of the BIG mistakes I see folks do when creating a portrait to use for their business:

MISTAKE #1- Have a friend, spouse or equally unqualified person (this includes a Costco Passport photo!) create your picture

MISTAKE #2- Get cheap. Base the image on how much it's going to cost (see number one)

MISTAKE #3- No or little planning. I see it ALL THE TIME. Last minute "I need this done yesterday!!" Listen. This is BAD planning. Nothing more than procrastination. Plan for success.

MISTAKE #4- Use a photo from 15 years ago. Serious? Need I explain?

This is not a time to cut back, cheap out or be shy.  I hear nonsense like "I hate having my picture taken...." So what. Grow up? You're a professional. Show the world your best side.

Not a snap shot. Not  a cheapo dept store passport photo. C'mon....be proud.

No excuses. Your picture TRANSMITS
so much about who you are.

Some examples from recent sessions this year...both in studio and on location....
