Prepare for Business Headshot

Pictures are a kind of way to preserve precious memories, but also the way to present ourselves to others. Even in the business world, both employers and employees realized the importance of a good shot. Professionally done photography on your business profile or business card can leave a great first impression on your clients.

In modern marketing, a great photo is definitely something that will attract customers to a product or service (read here). The same goes for both employees and job seekers. Investing in a professional headshot will help them create unique and outstanding profiles to attract the attention of possible clients or employers.

Do Preparation

Business portraits are usually presenting the upper body, with focus on face and posture. However, some business area also requires full-body photos (jobs requiring uniforms, for example, stewardesses). That’s why the selection of the photo outfit is essential. It has to make you ‘aesthetically acceptable’ to business standards, giving the impression of professionalism. But it has to be clothes that reflect your personality and character.

Men should shave right before shooting. As for ladies, discreet makeup and neatly tied hair will do. If you work (or looking for) a job that allows a casual dress code, you can let your hair down. Keep in mind that heavy makeup often doesn’t look nice in photos. It’s enough to cover minor defects, such as pimples and freckles (for the rest, there is Photoshop). If you can, leave your hair and face to the professionals.

Strike a Pose

Some people are naturally talented for posing in front of the camera. Others should practice. Although this seems very easy, especially for business headshots (‘just cross your hands and do not laugh’), it’s not that simple.

First, it’s okay to smile in your professional headshots. You …

Sometimes I’ll have sections that I’m not quite sure how they fit in the puzzle of a tune, they’ll get moved around; what I think was originally a verse ends up becoming the chorus, or what’s an intro gets dropped as a hook, things get shifted around a lot. Feelings aroused by the touch of someone’s hand, the sound of music, the smell of a flower, a beautiful sunset, a work of art, love, laughter, hope and faith – all work on both the unconscious and the conscious aspects of the self, and they have physiological consequences as well.

Inspiration comes from so many sources. Music, other fiction, the non-fiction I read, TV shows, films, news reports, people I know, stories I hear, misheard words or lyrics, dreams… Motivation? The memory of the rush I get from a really good writing session – even on a bad day, I know I’ll find that again if I keep going.

I think music is so diverse today, and bands are so diverse. If you were a rock band in the Eighties, you kind of had to stick to one thing. Now, in this age of Coachella and European festivals and stuff, it’s kind of anything goes, so that allowed us to try different things.

When you make music, you’re forming these invisible vibrations in the air into different shapes and consistencies and speeds in order to create music, and understanding how the math of that works just gives you more colors to paint with, and allows you to get to what you want quicker.

Remember the first time you went to a show and saw your favorite band. You wore their shirt, and sang every word. You didn’t know anything about scene politics, haircuts, or what was cool. All you knew was that this music made you feel different from anyone you shared a locker with. Someone finally understood you. This is what music is about. Jazz is smooth and cool. Jazz is rage. Jazz flows like water. Jazz never seems to begin or end. Jazz isn’t methodical, but jazz isn’t messy either. Jazz is a conversation, a give and take. Jazz is the connection and communication between musicians.

If you want to be a rock star or just be famous, then run down the street naked, you’ll make the news or something. But if you want music to be your livelihood, then play, play, play and play! And eventually you’ll get to where you want to be.
