Todays post is a few tips for the Arkansas senior guys out there.

 

  1. Avoid plain white shirts – dress shirts or T-shirts it really doesn’t matter just stay away from them.
  2. Bring at least one long-sleeved dark shirt of some kind.
  3. Accessories make your pictures hip and cool, so bring sunglasses, hats, and if you’re a hunter you can even bring an unloaded shotgun and camo.
  4. Try to avoid T-shirts printed with words, unless it’s a brand name.
  5. Bring something dressy – your mother and girlfriend like a well-dressed young man in pictures.

Tips for getting the Best Headshot

 

 

Tips From The Best Headshot Photographer In Little Rock Arkansas

1. Not having a profile picture – This my friends is a big no no. If you are promoting your business than prospective clients need to see that there is a real person behind the brand. Having a picture increases the likelihood of engagement, in other words people will not think your business is a scam.

2. Not adding a picture of yourself – I get it that you have a brand and you want that logo on there instead of a picture of you. In this instance create a company page put the logo there and put a picture of you in your profile. Again, this adds a level of legitimacy to you and your company.

3. Bad/Unprofessional Shots – You know these pictures, if not here they are; blurry, nightclub shots, shots that have people cropped out, bathroom shots, shots with too much information, shots with heads cut off, shots of drinking or smoking. I know that is not all but you get the picture. Think of your profile picture as your company’s first impression. If you were a potential client (or employer) would you be inclined to click on your profile? Would your profile picture set the tone for your business?

Well now that is done, let’s look at what your profile picture should look like.

1. Make sure your picture is clear – Hire a professional photographer to take some headshots of you. Let him/her know what they will be used for, I provide digital copies with out a watermark in three different file sizes for all my clients. I also suggest taking several different shot in different outfits to get more use and then you can rotate them out every couple of weeks.

2. Look at the camera and smile – In your headshot be engaging, I love seeing someone smiling it lights up your face. Creatives such as photographers, designers, graphic artists have a little more flexibility then executives or other business owners. Their profile picture needs to show what they do and send a message.

3. Body language – Keep your body language open, try not to cross arms unless you are leaning into the frame. Again, If you are a model, designer, or other creative you have more flexibility with this then executives. A designer can use a profile picture of themselves sewing, this sends a statement and your audience knows exactly what you do.

4. Color choices – Stay away from bright patterns or colors that will take away from your face. People want to see you, so keep it simple, stay away from busy patterns. Make sure you wear a color that works with your complexion and doesn’t wash you out.

5. Get them done regularly – New head shots do not have to be taken every month but at least twice a year or if you change something about your appearance.

 

I hope these tips have helped you in creating a better profile picture. If you have anything to add then leave comments below. Remember, most profile pictures are small so make it about you and showing your brand.

Arkansas Senior Pictures With A Theme

Arkansas Senior Pictures With A Theme

 

Arkansas Senior Pictures: One of my jobs during your senior session is to allow your passions and personality to shine through. One of the ways we can allow for this is by choosing the perfect locations. I want you to be in a setting that reflects your personality. The Central Arkansas area has a lot of wonderful spots to have your pictures made, I do lots of sessions each year in Burns Park, the park allows for several different themed type shoots, weather you are into softball, baseball or soccer. However, it is always a pleasant surprise to take senior pictures at a new and undocumented location and I am open to any location that my seniors come up with.

Arkansas Senior Pictures: Another cool way to way to show off your personality is your choice of wardrobe. Choosing the right outfits can make or break the photos. I recommend holding a dress rehearsal or fashion show with your your mom or best friend. Make sure the clothes fit properly, you have the right accessories and that everyone involved is in the same page with what you are wearing! The main thing to remember on the day of shoot is that you do not forget to bring the proper under-garments and or accessories. Remember not everything can be fixed in Photoshop, tan lines and bra straps being the biggest . Try grouping accessories, shoes and jewelry in small bags with each outfit that way you are sure not to forget anything.

Arkansas Senior Pictures: Bringing in your hobbies and activities into your shoot is another way for you to have pictures that standout from the norm. Are you a volleyball player if so bring your volleyball and uniform.  Maybe you play in the band; you could bring your instrument and marching uniform. If softball or baseball is your thing,  bring you bat, glove and a bucket of baseball or softballs so we can do something cool with them. If you love reading book after book, then bring a stack of cherished books with you anything that you feel shows everyone your unique interests and passions. No idea is off limits as long as it does not break any state or federal laws.
