Portrait Photographer

As with any field on life, professional experience and dedication makes a significant difference in photography. Access to a camera and editing apps are everywhere these days, which enables aspiring photographers to try and learn by repetition. The improvements on technology bring lots of competition to the world of photography and with all that also comes a neck-breaking speed of change on all aspects of our profession from technology (editing software and cameras) to technique. There is so much to see and so much to try, learn and relearn. As someone that truly loves photography, I welcome it all.

Is there still room for professional photographers out there? Yes, of course! The answer has to do with the ultimate quality of the images we deliver as professionals. Are you trying to broadcast a strong expertise on your field? Is attention to detail important on your job? Then you probably do not want to market yourself with a poorly taken selfie. If you do not seriously invest on your own professional image, then how well would you do for your clients? There is an old saying that goes: An image says more than a thousand words...

Having a bad headshot as your intro is as bad as showing poorly dressed to a first meeting with an important client or a prospective employer. It is actually worst, because the poor impression of a bad headshot replicates every time someone "meets" you digitally and you are not even there to counter the poor impression with your actual charming personality.

I do not want to scare you about your portrait but you do need to research and invest time (and money) to get it done right. The fact that you are reading this means you are doing your homework and learning about the whys and the how. As all professional photographers, I specialize on a few fields on which I have the skills and ability to help you. I also have a strong network to refer you to other local professionals for those areas outside of my fields of expertise.
