This evening speaker is Peter Alessandria who will speak to us about the impact of a professional headshot on your business.
Small business owners - You are the face of your business - put your best face forward
With the rise of the Internet and Social Media, in many cases the first thing potential customers see is your photo, and they will decide how professional you are by the quality of that photo.
What we will cover:
How professional headshots impact your business What makes for a great headshot We will then shoot free headshots on-site for all attendees How to prepare for this event:
Your appearance - make sure you are well groomed (hair cut & combed); make sure your clothes are clean and neat and reflect your level of professionalism. Are you dressed the way people expect you to be dressed? Make sure you get enough sleep the night before your shoot. Your personality - the more relaxed, engaged and confident you are the better your photos will be. What if I hate getting my photo taken? GET OVER IT. You are a professional. You have something of value to offer your customers. Play the part of a professional. Be confident. People are attracted to confidence and it comes across in your photos. Peter's Bio:
I had studied law (J.D.) and business (M.B.A.) in school and, prior to 2004, knew next to nothing about photography. However, after getting my first camera that year, I found a passion and excitement I had never known before. Today my business consists of commercial product photography, executive headshots, actor/model headshots, and fine art photography. For my product photography work ( http://www.greatproductshots.com ), I shoot products for catalogs, advertising and websites. For my headshot and portrait work ( http://www.superstarheadshots.com ), I create dynamic and compelling images that present my subjects in their best light. Finally, my fine art photography captures and expresses the beauty I see in the world every day.
