Ever heard of that expression “like a cobbler with no shoes”? Well that’s how I’m feeling right now, I’ve got lots of great shoes and of course my favorite Cowboy Boots!! (read the about me page on my website https://www.coandco.photography/the-photographer/), but I haven’t updated my headshot in about 6 months.
Ordinarily that might be okay, however in the spirit of trying your own goods or buying the stuff you sell, I think I should schedule a photo shoot in my studio. The challenge for me is once I get myself booked in I have to set up one of my cameras to self time and then I have to make it, my image, look good. Luckily, I can usually instruct/pose myself while the camera is firing off 9 or 10 frames with 3 seconds between each - hmm.. enjoy my out-takes, ha ha ha - great fun!
I know I go on about it all the time, but it is important nowadays to get good images for your Instagram, FaceBook, Linked and Google+ profiles. I like to change out my profile photos fairly regularly, keep it fresh, current and attract more connections.
Check out some of my work over at https://www.coandco.photography/portraits/ and let me know if I can help with some great looking, affordable headshots.
