The quality of your image tells a powerful story – make sure yours is saying the right thing…
Make your services more appealing, more desirable and memorable, and your business totally stand out from your competition by enhancing your company’s business image.
Research shows that you only have 7 seconds to make a first impression!
Your website, tender documents, annual report and how your staff feel about your business all work hand in hand to influence customers to choose your business over competition … or vice versa. Your business image is what positions you in the marketplace and attracts the right kind of customers.
You may have had your photograph taken dozens of times for different publications, but how many times have you been really happy with your image? Or had any control over the final results? Not with the Melbourne Headshot Company – You will leave our studio knowing what your new picture looks like and you will be proud to show it off to your colleagues, family and friends!
Here’s how you can identify a great headshot photo that works!
Look at the ‘before’ photo
(This was not taken by us!)
Does it inspire confidence? Would you want to meet this man?
Is that a natural smile or does it look forced and uncomfortable?
Poor choice of camera angle. It’s shot from too far below his chin, the subject’s jowls appear pronounced and unflattering.
The eyes are uneven – he has a “lazy eye” on his right hand side (our left) that opens slower than the other.
So do almost 40% of our subjects – unless photographed properly, it looks like he’s blinking or asleep.
That tie – it’s just too busy and distracting. We should only be focussing on his face.
Now see our ‘after’ photo
(We took this one for him recently)
The subject looks more confident and professional now doesn’t he?
Confident natural smile – like a TV news presenter.
Plain red contemporary business tie, and contrasting plain shirt.
Use of even lighting flatters the subject by reducing lines around his eyes.
Well fitting, tailored suit jacket.
Relaxed, conversational pose and body language, makes him look friendly and approachable.
This photo was shot from his best side to eliminate the lazy eye problem.
Finally, a Character portrait.
(We took this one as well)
The subject looks confident, dynamic & professional!
He has a confident approachable expression and he looks trustworthy!
Direct eye contact emphasizes one on one communication.
Strong side lighting creates a sense of drama.
Just visible expensive watch implies that he’s successful.
His naturally placed hand adds a human touch and grounds the subject, suggesting strength of character.
Most importantly, he now looks like he can justify charging more money for his services!
Hate having your photo taken?” You’ve just had the wrong Photographer up until now… We understand how to shape your body so you love how you look!
"Andrew is not only a photographer - he's a magician!"
We guarantee to make you look fantastic!
If you want to look ‘plastic’ then maybe we aren’t the photographers for you. We believe that we earn the privilege of a wrinkle or 2 and that’s what makes us who we are.
Yes, the photoshop fairies visit your image files before delivery, to enhance you, not change who you are like you see in over processed images all the time.
Retouching is included in the exceptional service we provide for you.
Hair and Make-up
Want To Look Your Best
Imagine this! You arrive with a few outfits over your arm. You are greeted by your own Professional Hair & Make-up artist waiting for you.
Your clothes are gently hung in the change room, but not before she notices what colours you have chosen for today.
As you sip and nibble on refreshments, you might even wonder why it’s been so long since you’ve enjoyed a bit on “me” time.
You turn and look in the mirror, and you breathe a sigh of relief, you still look like you, on a great day!
To add Hair & Makeup to your session is only an additional $45, and well worth the small investment.
Guys should bring a change of clothes and be well groomed for your session. Think like you were off to an event to meet some very influential people. We will take care of any shine or imperfections on the day for you.
The Melbourne Headshot Company believes in putting its’ money where its’ mouth is.
Our Philosophy is this..
“If we produce images that are not to your total satisfaction, we don’t deserve your business. Here’s what we’ve done to guarantee that the product you end up with is the one you were expecting to get in the first place”.
You are guaranteed to receive the best possible service and quality. We guarantee it 100%. If you are not happy with your final images, simply tell us before your session ends and we will re-shoot entirely at our expense. If you are still not happy when your session ends, you don’t pay!
This guarantee means that you have the ultimate peace of mind when you book the Melbourne Headshot Company to shoot your portraits!
