NYC Headshot Photographer

Finding a NYC headshot photographer used to be an easy task.  


Headshot photographers on Backstage.com

In the olden days, you'd pick up a copy of Backstage, flip to the advertisements, and start researching the photographers who advertised there.  You'd talk to a few, view some portfolios, and then commit to hiring someone.

I loved those days.  The NYC headshot photographer search was easy.  You looked in one place, asked a few friends, and you were set.  Ah, the good old days!


Finding a headshot photographer in NYC

Now it's much harder than that.  You've got ads for NYC headshot photographers coming at you on Facebook and Instagram.  There are new photographers cropping up every second.  Your friends are all shooting with new photographers you've never heard of.  

Social media is a great way to find new restaurants, clothing designers, trends, and more.  Can you use social media to find a good headshot photographer?  How do you find someone reliable if you turn to social media?
