Creative Headshots: Showcasing your personality

Headshots don’t have to be boring! If you’re looking to showcase your personality and stand out in your industry, a creative headshot/ creative personal branding session might be just what you need. So, what are creative headshots and why should you consider one?


What are creative headshots?

Creative headshots are portraits that break away from the traditional, formal headshot mold. They’re more relaxed, show off your personality and may incorporate elements of your personal style or environment. The goal is to create a photo that makes you memorable and showcases what makes you unique.

With so many people having similar looking headshots, a creative one can help you make a lasting first impression. Whether it’s for a website, social media or even a business card, a creative headshot can help you be recognized and remembered.

  1. Choose a backdrop that reflects you: Headshots can be taken in the studio or on location. Whether it’s your favourite coffee shop, a park or even your home office, choose a location that gives you a backdrop that feels like you. It can be a bold- different colour backdrop, or in a place that represents your business.
  2. Incorporate your personal style: Use props or accessories that are a part of your everyday life and show off your personality or work environment.
  3. Have fun with poses and expressions: Don’t be afraid to try different poses and expressions. A relaxed, natural look is often more appealing than a stiff, formal pose.
  4. Work with a photographer who gets you: A talented photographer can help bring your creative headshot to life, but make sure they understand your vision and can help showcase your unique personality.
