Bunn Hill Photo Head Shots And Portraits
Your head shot represents you and tells others who you are. It puts a face on your resume. Your head shot is equivalent to the first impression when someone meets you. While the head shot must be realistic and accurate, I'll use a full range of photographic techniques in terms of lighting, camera angle, background, and so forth to make your photo stand out. I will also use photo editing software to remove blemishes and other imperfections (all at no extra charge).
What really makes your head shot look great is when you feel comfortable and natural in front of the camera. I'll take time to get to know you, to engage you in conversation, even try to make you laugh by telling a joke or two, anything to get you to relax and express your true personality. Not all photographers do this well. It requires a genuine interest in people, which I have. I worked overseas as a social anthropologist for twenty years before becoming a professional photographer, and my photographic focus is almost exclusively on people (weddings, portraits, social events, and street photography). My sincere interest in people makes a head shot from Bunn Hill Photo an image you will be proud to use in representing yourself to others and in furthering your career.
While a head shot strives to show an individual accurately at his or her best, a portrait is an artistic portrayal that goes beyond depicting one's likeness: it attempts to capture character, mood, defining qualities, and personality. A portrait, whether of an individual, couple, a family or even a pet, engages the viewer. While realistic, a portrait may take liberties in terms of lighting, perspective, and background in order to render the subject in a more artful, painting-like fashion. Photo editing software might also be applied. Several portrait styles are available from Bunn Hill Photo, including formal, classic, glamour, film-noir, and neo-realism. I will work with you to select the most appropriate and flattering style. The goal is to produce a legacy portrait that will be cherished by the owner forever and will be admired by all viewers.
