Personal Branding Headshot Photographer New York

Business headshots used to be pretty standard. You hired a "headshot photographer" you found on Google, showed up for a fifteen minute session, smiled awkwardly in front of a dappled background, and had your image ready for your LinkedIn profile within minutes.

That was then. Then is now.

Business owners and entrepreneurs are in need of more than that simple LinkedIn headshot. They need something new, something that makes them stand out from their competition, something that catches the eye of their potential client. And they need more than just one picture, more than just one headshot.

Enter the personal branding session.

It's time to show off your personality, even in your business pictures! This image of Javier tells me more about his personality than any "standard headshot" ever could - can't you feel his personality leaping right out of this image?What is personal branding photography?

Personal branding photography is the new frontier beyond just your average headshot.

A personal branding photorgaphy session is meant to yes, create that headshot, but then go way above and beyond. The goal of the session is to create not just one image, but a catalog of images that you can use to market your business and yourself. You'll get to show off your personality, change clothes (and even hair and makeup styles) several times, and really explore illustrating who you are via your customized photo session.

Capture your headshot, and then move on to more......like this image, from later in the same session as the gentleman in the headshot above!Who can benefit from a personal branding photo shoot?

  • Broadway performers
  • Dentists
  • Architects
  • Doctors
  • Authors
  • Educators
  • Website designers
  • Co-work space owners

And the images have been used for:

  • Social media posts.
  • Newsletters, e-newsletters, in mailing list pushes, and ad funnels.
  • Press releases and articles.
  • Facebook profile pictures.
  • Landing and sales pages.
  • Alongside biographies for speaking and professional engagements.

I'd love to talk to you about your personal branding needs, and work to create the perfect photo shoot for you!
