Been on a social media hiatus lately with so many projects going on but I had to share this awesome chiseled up darker toned headshot with the mucho talented @mybeautyguy_stuartmay.

Taking a break from work and out at @cerdorestaurant with @loganranalli enjoying their France vs Greece meal battle and loving all the dishes we got to try.

Hanging in downtown Philly with @benmarcumphoto as he shoots some historical figures.

If you're a financial advisor like Alex is then your headshot should absolutely imply a friendly and confident demeanor coupled with the look of being competent. If you're handing over your family's hard-earned money for someone to manage you want to look them right in the eye and that's what this headshot is designed to do..
.
One part of that design is the lighting. People want to connect with your eyes. Every time I see a business person with hard shadows covering their eyes in a headshot I cringe. For a commercially viable headshot in the business world your eyes HAVE to be front and center in the presentation. I deliberately create these headshots to give the feeling that the person is right across the desk from you..

Barbara is a veteran actress who needs stand out from the pack when submitting for auditions and we worked hard on the subtleties of expression that made a difference..
.
I can assure you with that expression they're going to take a second and third look at her when compared against all the other headshots coming in that are saying nothing in the face. It pays to have a little attitude put forth and some kind of energy coming from the eyes..

A simple lighting change can give a completely different vibe as far as a headshot is concerned..
.
Note how the first picture is giving off a real friendly commercial vibe which always works well. On the second picture I've made a simple lighting change to dim the background as well as adding a touch of shadow on his face along with a more serious expression and the result is a completely different vibe..

Mejire is a buddy of mine who owns Minute Man Press in Philadelphia and Bala Cynwyd that I met through the Main Line Chamber of commerce..

A headshot session is a collaboration between myself and whomever is in front of my camera. To get the best results we have to play ball together and enjoy the game a little. The more we play ball the easier it is for me to nudge my clients into a place where we are getting real expressions instead of constipated looks..

Ashlyn's case exemplifies what commercial headshot photography is all about. I'm not an artist. I'm here to find the best way to promote you commercially; in front of your potential clients, in front of casting directors, in front of people finding you online, etc, etc. A commercially viable headshot is one of many tools to HELP YOU GET BETTER BOOKINGS AND BETTER CLIENTS..
.
Everything about this great headshot is deliberate and something that myself, Susan and even Ashlyn herself collaborated on; from the expression, to the positioning, to the connection with her eyes, to the style of makeup, to the hair, to the clothing and the list goes on and on..

Note the consistency across this organization. Everything from the lighting to the positioning has been planned to look consistent. Even the foundation and lipstick on the females is deliberate and made to look consistent despite the different faces and skin tones - this is exactly what having a makeup artist for corporate shoots is for.
.
Having visual consistency across your organization implies consistency in your service and product no matter who your clients work with. Everyone here at Barilotti Wealth Strategies is client facing and it is important that each and every headshot give the visual cues that they are collectively up to the task. The final touch of having their office mascot shows that they are a firm that is also down to earth.
