Great Headshot Tips | Healing Arts | Top Photographer Portland
Healing arts practitioners, yoga instructors and wellness advocates often seek me out, looking for a professional, yet non-traditional headshot that embodies and reflects their professional field.
For professionals in the health and wellness field, it is essential to have a professional portrait to represent your business and relay the message to your potential clients that you are credible. It’s incredible, the amount of influence your profile image can have in a viewer’s decision to choose you as someone they trust (or not).
I see so many flyers and marketing campaigns for healing arts specialists, yoga gurus and wellness practitioners, using a snapshot photo.
When a person is entrusting you with their health and wellness, they want to be sure they are choosing someone who is 100% professional and credible. Representing yourself and your practice with a snapshot photo is not relaying this message. It’s telling them that professionalism and your presentation and attention to detail in your practice are unimportant to you.
You may be sending signals that you don’t take your status seriously, and possibly that you are not popular enough to earn enough money in order to invest in your business.
Professional headshots simply are an extremely valuable and essential investment for your business. Whether you’re in Portland, Lake Oswego, Oregon City, Beaverton, Vancouver Washington or any surrounding area, you have easy access to the professional portraits that will make that difference for your business.
So often, the standard studio setting on white or black backdrop is unsuitable for the branding and overall feel of a business and overall industry, and simply contradicts the underlying essence of a practitioner.
Generally, a health and wellness practitioner and advocate wants to relay a softer, more natural feel and message.
