How to take a headshot – 15 tips from a professional headshot photographer.

How To Take A Headshot Tips from a professional headshot photographer In Melbourne, Covid-19 had most of us in complete lockdown for months.

Headshots Or Mugshots?

I’ll be honest here, I get a little bit sad every time I hear someone refer to a headshot as a ‘mug shot’. Many people think of school photos when they think of headshots. The process of sitting down for 10 seconds, then up and away. Results that nobody really likes, and that haunt you for the next year. But that’s the point I’m hoping to make about headshots here: Headshots aren’t like school photos. They aren’t like mugshots. Headshots […]

And if it’s not this then it’s an array of excuses like “I would like to lose a bit more weight”, “I’m not photogenic” or “I just don’t have time – it’s not a priority”. These feelings are real […]
