CHICAGO HEADSHOT PHOTOGRAPHER 

IS YOUR HEADSHOT HOLDING YOU BACK?

CONFIDENCE

Your confidence is going to come from your eyes. You want to avoid that deer in the headlights look to drive home the fact that you’re an expert in your field.

APPROACHABILITY

Approachability is a combination of the body language and the smile. Not all smiles are created equal therefore, if it looks fake, you can forget about looking approachable.

PSYCHOLOGY

What are you trying to convey with your headshot? Does your current headshot get the job done, or is it costing you opportunities? Is your headshot positioning you properly to get the work you’re looking for?

A great headshot is no longer an option, it’s a requirement. Your LinkedIn profile is working for you 24 hours a day 7 days a week whether you want it to or not. Have you ever googled yourself?  People who insist upon the best, choose 312 Elements Headshot Photography. It’s not a coincidence that I’m continually voted the best headshot photographer in Chicago, but don’t take my word for it. I have tons of testimonials all over the internet.

ENVIRONMENTAL PORTRAITS

“You don't get a second chance to make a first impression. It takes most people less than 7 seconds to form an opinion about you. Your personal branding is more important now than it's ever been before . Take control of your personal branding and you take control of your first impression”

YOU NEED A HEADSHOT BUT YOU HATE BEING PHOTOGRAPHED

Sound familiar? Fear not. I get this ALL the time. Anyone can click the shutter on camera, but it takes an expert like myself to coach you from behind the camera. There's a learning curve to being photographed. If you walk through the door with a the ability to follow instructions, I can take care of the rest. This is one of those scenarios in life where you absolutely get out what you put in. It's a team effort.

WOULD YOU CALL YOURSELF PHOTOGENIC?

If you answered yes to that question, you’re definitely in the minority. My business exploded in 2012 when we discovered the secret to helping people look their best in photos. Not only will you be coached throughout the process by one of the best headshot photographers in the country, but you’ll also be able to review the images in real-time to put your mind at ease.
