Two things to ask yourself to make a killer first impression

Have you ever played the "First Impressions Game"?  You know, the one where you get to proudly say your intuition was spot on or where you have to sheepishly admit you were wrong about someone.  (It's okay, you can admit you've been the person in the second category - no judgment zone! hehe)

In today's internet saturated world, it is likely that your first impression happens when someone visits your LinkedIn profile, checks out your Facebook page, finds you on Match or just enthusiastically swipes right, which makes the power of your professional headshot even more important than ever.

Keep reading for TWO THINGS TO ASK YOURSELF when preparing for your Portfolio Session that will help you make a killer first impression, land your dream job, and have your friends rave about your new profile picture on social media (all in a day's work).

No. 01 = "What do I want my audience to know about me from my portrait?"  This is one of the first questions we will ask you when you come into the Studio.  It dives into the realm of who are you and what do you want others to believe about you.  Answering this not only gives you a direction for the photo session, but it also allows us to create portrait sets that reflect your goal.  For example, Branden was going for the Dos Equis look for his portfolio session - intriguing and approachable.  He definitely nailed the "most interesting man in the world" vibe!

No. 02 = Someone witty and wise once said to "dress how you want to be addressed."  Thinking about this immediately after question #1 lets you line up your wardrobe with your goals for your portrait session.  We love the way Branden brought two variations of suits and rocked them with confidence.  (Also shout out to a good custom tailored suit piece!)  Another good move on Branden's part was to incorporate a casual look in addition to his professional attire; this showcased his more everyday, lifestyle side of who he is, which simply gave him more variety in imagery.

The other awesome perk of corporate photography for our Studio B Team is meeting amazing professionals at the top of their game.  We were fortunate enough to have time with Human Resources pro Tammy Perkins and bend her ear about personal branding that we can share with you!

"As someone working in marketing and with industry professionals, I can say that your brand is who you are and what people think about you when you walk out of the room.  Present yourself in a way where you don’t appear to be a staged house!  I often see people put together their LinkedIn profiles, and I meet them in person and they are completely different.  What I would tell people is to be absolutely, 100% yourself.  Through photography, there are different ways to represent yourself in a way that is authentic.  Present yourself in away that shows your passion, your curiosity, and that’s when you’ll shine. "

- Tammy, Chief People Officer for Fjuri

How to get amazing headshots and personal branding images even when you are NOT photogenic.

Let me guess "you are not photogenic and you hate having your picture taken?" As a professional photographer, this is brand new information and I for one am shocked.  (Kidding of course. we hear this on the daily at my studio and it is with great confidence that I can tell you -- it truly does not matter because frankly, that's my job not yours. That being said, there is ONE thing that matters a lot and if you want to get amazing headshots and nail your personal branding for LinkedIn, social media and heck... even online dating - you've got to be able to answer the following question...

Studio B Portraits_Brooke Clark_Contact Page_mark-web.jpg

What does your business headshot say about you?

What do you want people to think when they see your photo?

Yep, there literally is just one game-changing question that I need you to address honestly and thoughtfully before we begin.  "Who do you want to be in this photo?" In other words, what do you want people to think about you when they see your headshot and branding photography? Are you in sales and need to be friendly and engaging? Are you an experienced pro that desires to look contemporary or an upstart that needs to look more seasoned? (You get where I'm going with this, right?)  It's important to understand that this is about creating your desired first impression - that split-second impact that a great image creates in the viewers mind.  Answering this question authentically will then give your photography team everything we need to get you picture-perfect.

The Power of "Thank You" | Game Changing Client Appreciation

With Professionals Week right around the corner, we wanted to highlight one of our favorite corporate clients inspiring us to be better.  We recently photographed headshots at the offices of Da Vinci Dental  in Bellevue for their annual "Smile Party" and the client appreciation event had everyone... yep, you guessed it... smiling.

From the Trophy Cupcakes to to the warm hugs and laughter, you would have thought that this was a family reunion... not a trip to the dentist.  A lot of businesses have big talk but it's clear that this family owned practice understands the power of a genuine thank you in creating a successful practice..

3 Reasons why Professional Make-up is a must for your photo shoot.

Okay, awesome you have decided that this portrait session is happening (congrats by the way) And now you are asking yourself - should I add camera ready make-up? In short, the answer is ABSOLUTELY YES!  And here is why.

1. Your portrait session is not only a luxury experience but also a lasting document of this time. Whether you are photographing senior pictures, family portraits or head shots, these images are going to be with you for many, many years.

2. Styling professionals are professionals for a reason -- their access to tools, techniques and products combined with their education and skill are the reason that models in magazines look like...well...models in magazines :-)

3. It's important to note that a "street face"...how we apply our make-up each day...is quite different than a "camera-ready" face where special attention is given to prepping your skin for studio lights and high definition camera lenses.  I love the pop to the eyes, lashes and brows that only a pro make-up artist can achieve -- it's just gorgeous.
