In my line of work I know that my professional photos that I have on my website are really important. So many clients tell me that they are something they consider when deciding if I’m the right image consultant for them. It’s important for me to keep them up-to-date too as I frequently have to meet clients who I’ve never laid eyes on in shopping centres, so it makes it much easier if they can recognise me from a recent photo. So last week it was time for some more and I engaged Neil Creek to take them for me.
His wife Naomi was on the shoot too and took some behind the scenes shots which I’m going to share with you, as well as some of the final shots which I’m hoping you’ll help me decide on which to use.
We all know that flattering lighting makes a big difference to the outcome, and as I’m a serious blinker when someone takes a photo of me with a flash pointed directly at me, it was great to have these more indirect lights to make me look good.
The shoot took just over an hour and in that time multiple changes of clothes were made. It’s good to try on different outfits, sometimes something that looks great in person doesn’t come up so well on camera, so having options can make quite a difference.
My son when looking through the photos said to me “you’ve got the same smile in all of them” which of course I have, as it’s my smile.
Oh and in case you’re wondering, I did my own hair and makeup.
Now what I want you to do is let me know in the comments which 3 pics you like the best, the ones that would make you want to engage me as your image consultant. They’re numbered, so just put your preferences (in order) in the comments.
