A Photographer’s Headshots



The blog contains little bits of my life, my passions, and my work. I update it daily so there is always something new to come see.





A Photographer’s Headshots should be a must for every photographer. If you’re shooting them yourself, it forces you to think very purposefully about your posing. Also, you have to know your camera settings inside and out. It’s a great exercise for any photographer, from newbie to veteran.

Also, shooting a photographer’s headshots can be nerve-wracking. There is a certain amount of pressure one might feel when shooting another photographer’s photos. I, personally, feel inspired when asked by other photographers to photograph them. Nevertheless, it can pull you out of your comfort zone.

The final reason it is so important for a photographer to have his/her photos taken is to remember what it feels like to be on the other side of the camera. Losing touch with your subjects is a sure-fire way to lose that mentality of your clients. Being empathetic to your subject’s feelings, fears, insecurities, etc. is crucial to any great photographer. Quote me on that.

I recently enlisted Tyler to take my photographer’s headshots. I was uncomfortable at first (as we all are, right?) but settled in and got some shots I really love.

Thanks for tuning in! I’m off to update my LinkedIn profile, my Instagram profile, and maybe even my facebook profile.

Talk to you soon,
