Dynamic Headshots stand out from more traditional ones to show who you are and what you do. I agree that we all need a straight forward headshot for certain sectors of business, but why not shake it up if you can and stand out from the crowd? If you do not work in a corporate office, take advantage of that to show your unique business.
I had a great time creating headshots with Mary Hurley of Sunshine-n-Daisies, a physical trainer and health coach here in Connecticut. We did some standard shots and some for her website as well. But this image below was one of our favorites because of the uniqueness and this dynamic headshot quality. My goal is to help my clients grab the attention of potential clients, help them create an images for their business that reflect what they do and still be professional.
I shot this dynamic image in my studio against a dark grey background (http://www.backgroundsbymaheu.com ). This is a 1 light portrait with a little fill from a reflector on the opposite side. I wanted to light her profile and show her as her clients would probably see her as their physical Trainer!
Let me know if you need to update your headshot or other photos on your website. I would love to help you. The process can be difficult without a professional to help you make your vision of you and your business come to life!
