Headshot Photographer Edmonton
When it comes to headshots, there is no one standard procedure. Everyone is unique, and should be photographed that way! Getting to know my clients and gaining their trust is very important to me. Through these 5 simple questions, I learn a lot about my clients before even picking up my camera.
What do you do for a living? This is a great initial question. Even before the session happens, I will have probably asked this, or figured it out, when the client has inquired with me. But even at the session, I will ask a bit more about his or her profession. It’s a great way to start a conversation and have them relax a little before having a camera in their face!
I find clients have an easier time answering this question than the previous one. Most often after asking this question, I end up with a longer list compared to what they do like. After listening to everything that went wrong at their last session, or mistakes they made with wardrobe, hair, makeup, etc. I can make sure that their experience this time around is a much more positive one.
5. Where will the image be used?
This is a very important question. If the image is being used on a website, will it need to be horizontal or vertical? Does the background need to be a certain color so it matches the website? This is much easier to sort out before the photograph is taken. Often people assume all headshots are vertical, when in fact they could be either way!
