I have several bad photos I have sent in where many times I have been told that the photos not only do not reflect who I am, but don’t reflect me as well as in person!
This is actually a pretty common complaint, one that I’ve heard a lot from clients who were shot by someone else. Sometimes, people get glammed up too much. Or, worse yet, the photographer shoots them the same way that they would shoot anyone else. And naturally, the image just doesn’t have the right feel.
If you want to read more about this, go read my article for Second City on “6 Ways to Fuck Up Your Headshots“, or just read my blog on 7 things you should know before getting your headshot.
