Guys, as a Denver photographer with 18 years experience, we have photographed a lot of men’s headshots. And, in that time, we have learned a lot about what makes a headshot stand out. Now more than ever, your headshot MATTERS in this virtual world. Whether you are looking to use your headshot for a dating profile, or for a professional web page, people buy people. And we want your headshot to capture the attention of the RIGHT people.
Men, read on about what you need to know about how to make YOUR Denver headshot stand out.
Identify your target audience with your headshot
Your headshot is a marketing agent. If done right, it will connect with the right “target audience”. But you need to know WHO that audience is first.
Business Profile Headshot: If you are doing a headshot for business, first sit down and describe that potential client. How old are they? Are they usually male or female? How do THEY dress? Then dress to impress THAT person.
Dating Profile Headshot: Think about the person you want in your life, then describe them in detail. Are they a free-spirit or more of a planner? Are they a creative type or more of a left-brain logical type?
In our headshot booking forms, we give you an opportunity to share WHO you are and WHO you are looking for. And we will photograph you in a way that attracts the right person.
The following men’s headshots were all targeting more of a creative type of personality. Note the casual nature of the poses, the engaging backgrounds and a how the image has more of an artistic feel.
Consider a wardrobe to tailor your body
An easy way to dress up a casual look and look trim and fit is to add a tailored jacket. A nicely fitted jacket will show off all the BEST parts of your chest and shoulders and will slim your waist. And, you don’t have to do a typical button up shirt. Consider a knit or graphic t-shirt under a tailored jacket for a more casual look.
Don’t be afraid to show different expressions
No need to just “smile at the camera”. The most endearing men’s headshots incorporate some various expressions. And you don’t always have to “show teeth”. Occasionally, we will help you create a laser-focus expression, or even looking away from the camera.
