How to Create a Timeless Headshot
Truthfully, no headshot is timeless because we age, unfortunately. And our hair, wardrobe, and other features change. However, there are a few things that we can do to ensure that our headshots are classic and relevant for at least a few years.
- Consider wardrobe. Don’t wear something that’s super trendy if you’d like for your headshot to be around for a little while. Stick to classic looks (black jacket, pearls, etc.) and you can never go wrong.
- Find a professional headshot photographer. Your friend down the street with the nice camera can back you up against a wall and take a photo but that’s not going to look professional or last very long. Similarly, not all professional photographers specialize in headshots. There are certain classic lighting ratios, poses, and expressions that headshot photographers can create.
- Don’t give in to the latest trends. Or better yet, let’s create the latest trend but also create the classic look so that you can lean on that one when the trendy image becomes obsolete.
I love to work with clients on creating something that fits not only their style but the end usage for their images and ensure that it’s a look that they will love for a long time! Sometimes clients need their headshot to match the current company headshots and we can do that. Other times, clients just need a great headshot that represents them well. What style is right for your next headshot?
