When was the last time you updated your professional portrait? If it’s been more than two years you need to have a new one taken. Seriously. Styles change quickly – do you really want potential clients to think you’re not up with the latest trends? I know that sounds a bit ridiculous but most people want to know that the professional they choose for any service is current and relevant in their industry. People are visual. If you look outdated – then maybe you aren’t that innovative person they are looking to hire.

Why do I need to update my professional business portrait?
Do you want to begin every new business relationship with a lie?
This sounds a bit over dramatic but it’s true. We have become a nation/world of highly visual people. Potential customers are using the internet to seek out professionals and companies for all of their needs. When they find you is the image you are using really who you are or who you were 10 years ago? When they walk into your business to meet you for the first time will they recognize you? If they don’t – what do you think that says to your new client?
Business portraits need to be updated every two years – minimum.
Call us today so we can help you put your best face forward!
I have spent a bit of time over the last 11 years retouching the images I’ve taken. Thousands of images, thousands of hours spent removing blemishes, stray hairs, double chins, opening closed eyes – switching heads from one image to another. You name it I have done it.
While retouching portraits of several different handsome men today I noticed that I was spending quite a bit of time on facial hair. I can easily fix a stray nose hair but the mustache/beard area is a whole other thing. This for me is one of the trickiest areas to do. In one click the portrait can go from realistic to mannequin. This made me stop and ponder the issue. Maybe they just need a few tips on what to do and when to do it before their big day. Do they know that a proper shave by a professional can change their life?
So here you go fellas. I did a bit of surfing with the help of Google today and found a site/page to help you out. I liked this one because of the tips are plain and simple – no fuss. Ladies – feel free to share with your guys so you can make sure your wedding day photos are stunning!!!
I’m always eager to see what some of my fellow photographer friends are doing all around the world. I’ve known Melissa for a few years and love to see her images. She is super creative and I love the way she captures the spirit and individuality of her bridal couples. I was excited to start my wedding season this month – but now I”m SERIOUSLY excited!!
