A different kind of Head Shot…

This is Tim. He works for Petaluma Home Loans and he decided he needed a new head shot. Tim didn’t want a traditional head shot, he wanted something to show the environment as well, which is good for me because I am not very traditional.

We’ve all seen the bad head shots on the real estate billboards on the side of the road. I am amazed at the photos some professionals use to sell themselves… most times it seems like choosing not to use a photo would be better than the photos some people select. So it was fun to work with Tim, who understands the value of a good photo, and to try and create a natural, yet professional head shot.
