HeadShots • Publicity • Executive Photography
by Mark Jordan ©2010
What is your head-shot communicating about you to the world and your potential clients? It cannot be overemphasized, people do equate the quality and credibility of your craft by the image you present - 90% of which is made at the subconscious level.
Long gone are the days of 'putting your best foot forward' - it's been replaced by putting forward your best 'face.' That is to say, unless you were aware of the message intended with your present head-shot, the odds are it is saying something about your identity other than what you wish. More than likely, it is also doing more harm than good.
