Here’s something you can’t do with an iPhone In previous blogs I’ve talked about how important facial expressions and eye contact are, about having a good hair cut and wearing the right clothes. All these elements are key to creating that perfect first impression and there are loads of articles on our blog about it. You can read about them elsewhere on our blog.

Headshots with Angela Langley

How important and clothes, backgrounds and cropping? Last summer we did a fab shoot with Angela Langley. She wanted selection of headshots and portraits to use for her business profile on LinkedIn and for her other gig - she's a standup comedian. Now, you'd think that someone who can entertain an audience and keep them laughing for an hour or so wouldn't be worried at all about having her headshots wouldn't you? Well, it turned out that Angela was really worried about it. She came along to our Warrington headshots photography day with a great selection of clothes and loads [...]

Is there a difference between male and female headshots?

By |2020-10-09T11:49:47+00:00October 1st, 2020|Female headshots, Male headshots|

When it comes to taking the perfect headshot, the first and most important thing to consider is the subject. There is no rule in photography that dictates how male or female headshots should look but perception is everything and when someone views your headshot, you will want to convey the right message. It is therefore the job of the photographer to capture you in your best light and create the right first impression. So what differentiates male headshots and female headshots? The answer is that there is no real difference and people will make judgements based on what is in [...]

In July Nicole and I did a headshots and profile photos session for Amanda Bate Redwood Copy. Although Amanda is based in Frodsham we did the shoot in Chester. It was a great place to take Amanda’s headshots because it’s an old building with a quirky interior which gave us some interesting, real backdrops. Amanda Bate left the corporate world nearly four years ago to start her own content writing business, Redwood Copy.

Last Autumn I photographed Kate Jenkinson PhD, FCIPD for her Linked In profile and website etc. Kate hadn't been comfortable being photographed under studio lights and after her first session we chatted about it and decided to do another session with a different approach... Like many people, Kate hates being photographed. A fairly random natural light session was going to be best. We started by taking headshots in Kate's kitchen, wandered around Lymm, near Warrington where we both live and finished in the Coffee House, a fabulous café in the centre of the village. The natural light was [...]
