Find a photographer whose work you are in love with.
When the work of a photographer speaks and appeals to you means that both your personality and the photographer's style are in sync, and that should be your main deciding factor. Check that they have a differentiated style from others and that it is consistent trough their portfolio.
Check that your photographer specialises in what you need, when you choose a headshot photographer
You must check that the photographer often do the specific type of photos that you need, for example acting headshots or corporate portraits. Check that they often appear on their portfolio, that means that they are familiar with standards and needs of their clients.
Talk to your photographer before you book your headshots.
Portrait and headshot photographers choose that specialization because we enjoy working with people, don't hesitate to get in touch, we love to hear from you. Initiate a quick call or email to understand what you need, prepare for it, make helpful suggestions and guide you through and that's how to choose a headshot photographer.
