What kind of message or statement is your headshot saying about you?
It is imperative that your realtor headshot shows confidence and approachability. Put yourself in your client's shoes. They are making a huge investment in a new home. They need to be able to trust you and know that you are not only trustworthy but friendly and responsible. If you are not willing to invest in yourself by getting a professional headshot, how can you expect them to trust you and make a major investment in buying a home?
Not All Headshots Are Created Equal
Everyone can take a decent headshot today. But is decent going to establish that trust with your potential client? While it may be tempting to just post a selfie, or have your friend with the good camera do it for $50. Is that the message you want to send out?
When you invest in a professional headshot photographer you will get the following:
- Professional Lighting. Having a headshot taken with poor lighting just isn't flattering. Good professional lighting always will stand out and give your image and yourself a more polished look. Think of it as meeting in your sweats and sneakers or meeting wearing a dress or suit and tie. Which looks more professional? You get the picture.
- Posing and Angles. You probably don't like having your photo taken. Perhaps you have even heard that the camera adds 10 pounds. Well guess what? It can. In the hands of an inexperienced photographer you may end up looking bigger than you are. But in the hands of an experienced photographer you may end up looking 10 pounds leaner! Hmm....Now which would you prefer?
- Styling. Proper styling and understanding of what to wear should be discussed at some point prior to your headshot session with your headshot photographer. What you wear for your headshots will make a difference in the final outcome.
- Coaching This is super important. Your headshot absolutely must portray confidence and approachability. Your headshots must be engaging and you need to look friendly and connected with the viewer in order to establish trust. Today you have milliseconds to make an impression, therefore you must have the right expression to stop that scroll. A professional and experienced headshot photographer will know how to bring out the best in your expression and will give you direction so that you get that winning shot!
