It can be a minefield trying to choose a suitable headshot photographer, not to mention the stress of being photographed - considering many of us hate having our pictures taken.
Feeling nervous, shy or self-conscious is a normal state of being. When visiting McFaddenReed I will make the experience both relaxed and informal - it’s my job to work with you to get the very best shots for you. The reason I do this is because I love it when someone leaves a session with some killer new headshots and having had a great experience.
Your headshot needs to capture your unique selling point. Despite the thousands of people in your industry, there is only one of you and together we will make sure you stand out as you.
All Casting Directors will tell you they work on very tight budgets and are always pushed for time so they just don’t have the luxury of deliberating over your profile. From the hundreds of thumbnails they receive in response to any casting breakdown, a Casting Director makes a swift decision about whose profile to click on for more information.
This is why your headshot needs to hit the mark immediately.
Depending on the package you select, I will provide you with headshots in four different sets; both studio and exterior (weather permitting) and with at least four outfit changes. This should allow for a wide range of looks to choose your images from.
Before we begin shooting, we’ll have a chat the look and style you are aiming for and I can advise you on how to achieve these, changing sets accordingly. A comp or z card service can be provided if required.
In business, a good headshot is even more essential with so much more of our lives and work now conducted online.
That old saying ‘people buy people’ has never been truer and a standard passport-style image on your profile or CV doesn't cut it anymore; it’s about understanding what you want your headshot to say about you, the services you provide and the activities you do, and then working together to capture it.
I am available for Corporate bookings and business professionals - either as a bespoke group package capturing an organisation’s particular look and feel across all headshots, or for individual sessions.
