Meet Michael.I was lucky enough to meet his awesome wife on a local chat about having celiac years ago. We had lunch, became friends, and we have shared many dinners, book clubs, etc since.Recently, we were out to dinner and chatting about photography when the subject of head shots came up. I was sharing my thoughts about how important it is to have great head shots for your professional image when Michael showed me his. It’s interesting to look at a head shot of someone you don’t know. You formulate ideas about who they are instantly. But try looking at a headshot of someone you do know. Does that shot look like the person they are? In Michael’s case…the answer was ‘No’. I suggested that we do some updating and he was in!Anyone who knows Michael knows how appropriate it was that we met in downtown Wheaton at the Starbucks. I thought the urban/vintage vibe would be great for him.Michael is funny, quirky, super smart and interesting. I wanted his photos to reflect all of those things with a more casual feel. Of course, we had a few great outtakes….as I would expect with this guy!I told you…he’s a funny guy. But, mostly, we captured some amazing photos that I think will give someone a sense of his personality long before they meet him.I also put together some photos just for him personally….cool black and white shots that are more artsy than the normal head shot.It was such a fun night. He discovered a side of Wheaton he never knew existed (including my favorite alleyways) and I enjoyed his interesting and fun company.Thinking of getting new head shots? Give me a call…I would love to put together a great portfolio of images that will make your LinkedIn page or website a more effective tool.
