I can’t recommend investing in a set of professional images enough! You’re looking for a photographer that takes the time to understand your brand, and comes with ideas on location, shots, and delivers finished images you can use on your website, social, and more.
Here is my go-to shot list:
- Headshot (chest up)
- Action shot — you working in your office or coffee shop, or meeting with a client, I love the ‘over the shoulder of the client and focusing on you’ image
- Wide shot with youself over to a side with enough negative space to put on the side
- Ambience shots — images with clues about what you do, or reflect the vibe of your brand
Shameless plug for FOCUSED Media Collective, if you’re in the Seattle area, Rachael’s team is brilliant and can plan and capture your brand with marketing strategy in mind.
My headshots are from Ali Meliah Photography, Alison is based in Tacoma, Washington and I adore her, and her work.
