Songs of Life is our family portrait studio that opened full time back in 2011. As time went on, we saw a need in the business, music, dance, and event community and Bell Pro Portraits was created!
Usually, the last four months of the year are extremely busy with family portraiture, so this blog got a little neglected. We are fixing that!
We are very proud to work with musicians, dancers, actors and businesses to help them convey the messages they want their audience to hear. Whether that is with a head shot, personal branding, or at their event.
We have worked with many wonderful people, and Bill is one of them!
When Bill came to us, he had recently become a licensed insurance agent and needed several images for his website and social media. Most of the time, clients need a "typical" head shot. Meaning, one that is straight on, upright and looks approachable. That image is usually used for linkedin, facebook profile image, and in emails.
But, there is also a time to do more! More variety, more poses, more unique options. Images can still convey professionalism, but look unique enough for people to stop and say, "That person looks professional, friendly, and someone I want to meet."
We think taking the time to get to know our client's needs and the purpose of the images helps create a good variety of imagery. We also take into consideration who are client is, the client's appearance, and what would look best for them. For example, dramatic lighting is not always the best choice for some. Black and white editing and certain posing does not work well for everyone.
We think black and white looks great for Bill!
As does this type of posing
As does your typical head shot.
