Before & after: understanding the headshot process

Before & after: understanding the headshot process

So you want to get a headshot as a means of developing your career. Maybe you’re an actor who is looking to get a big part in a movie or you’re a realtor who wants to create a personable and approachable ad campaign presence. Regardless of the application, a headshot can make or break your chances of getting that next job or snapping up that potential client.

A quick Google search will come up with dozens of local headshot photographers who seem to offer similar things in the way of perks or value and choosing the right one can become a daunting task. The key to a great headshot is that you like your image and that it conveys a natural (literally and figuratively speaking) confidence to your prospective audience. It is with that aforementioned reasoning that we painstakingly hand edit all of our images instead of just throwing them into skin correcting software. The potential pitfalls of utilizing automatic programs in the post processing workflow are numerous and include: loss of skin texture, flattening of facial features, plastic appearance of skin and over sharpened outlines.

We here at Highline West understand that your headshot is a vital aspect of your profession and we pride ourselves on not only providing you with a superior image but also on building a relationship with you that will span the rest of your career.
