What makes a great headshot?

Headshot Photography, Headshot Photography FAQ
Personal Branding Photography in Bath with Nick Cole Photography

Let’s keep it simple, a great headshot needs to do three things really well.

  1. It should be up to date and a fair reflection of how you look now.
  2. Help you build a quick connection with people you don’t know or a quick reminder for the people you do know.
  3. The style should fit with your personality or your personal / business brand.

They’re the headline points. The fun and slightly more challenging bit is creating a great headshot that does these three things really well.

In the article what is headshot photography, I explore how to maximise the engagement with your headshot. As with all the rules in photography, it’s good to know them and then you can decide if you want to break them!

If you’d like to find out more, I’ve written a series of headshot photography FAQs. Clients often ask me these questions, so I hope you find them helpful.

If you prefer a chat instead, or you’d like to plan a headshot session you can book a complimentary consultation call here.
