VSP Global corporate headshot event

I received a phone call from a representative of VSP Global about doing a corporate headshot session during a seminar they were putting on in Nashville. It would be at the Gaylord Opryland Hotel resort, in the Canal ballrooms. The group of optometrists would be attending the educational seminar that VSP put on, and getting proper business headshots were one of the perks of attending.  Here are some photo highlights from the VSP Global corporate headshot event!

No matter how many times I’ve been to that hotel, the navigation always confuses me, LOL! Thankfully I had a helper and I traveled as light as possible. Portable high key background, 2 strobe heads, stands, 84″ parabolic umbrella, spare strobe head, and camera bag. Plus a stool. This helps for getting the best angle and posture for the subjects, looking friendly and approachable yet confident and professional.

It was fun to meet people from all over, and be able to provide them with what they needed quickly because all 60 or so of them were between presentations and of course want to fast forward to dinner and kicking back. I hope you’ve enjoyed photo highlights from this VSP Global corporate headshot event! Here are a few key points Lauren, the event coordinator made in her review of my services on my Google business page!

I first contacted Jay after only seeing his website. He was incredibly helpful over the phone, which is why I ultimately chose him for our event. He explained how the process would work on the day of, and what to expect .

On the day of the event we had a very last minute schedule change and I called Jay first thing in the morning to ask if he could start an hour early that day. He willingly obliged. He and his assistant arrived at the agreed upon time, set up quickly and were friendly and professional as they quickly moved our group through for headshots.

Jay got the photos to me less than 2 days after the event and they look great! I am so impressed with the quality! I am incredibly grateful to Jay for being flexible and accommodating of my changing schedule and for making the whole process from start to finish a great experience for both myself and my business partners. I have nothing but good things to say about Jay, both personally and professionally.

Headshots for realtors

Abso-freakin-lutely! LOL! I have done several of them over the years but not so many lately. I understand many are trying to cut back and all that. But, as a realtor, you are a professional offering a very personal service. Home selling and buying can be a tiresome and nerve racking process, so it’s always nice to have a good assertive realtor who is also caring and human. A photo can help represent that. Most every realtor’s business card has their photo on it. So why not put some care into it, since it represents your professional image and what your potential clients will see? Nothing less flattering than red eye from on camera flash, shot by a friend etc. Or a shiny hot spot on a man’s head who is folically challenged lol. Those are just a couple reasons why investing in a professional headshot is a worthwhile investment.

I use a similar strategy as I would a corporate headshot. I don’t have the person look too casual and giggly, but not too stern and serious either. Hey that sternness could work for a lawyer though haha! I wouldn’t hire a friendly lawyer. Friendly, approachable, and confident. Good balance. Professional attire recommended, can be in between casual and dress, avoid distracting accessories or color patterns, since the focus is on your face. Not too stiff, but no excess of cleavage, or gold chains or chest hair sticking out either LOL! You get the idea. I do have a tip for realtors saving money on headshots. Get a few of your colleagues in your office to book a session too, and come to the studio at the same time, and that way it’s less setup and time, everyone wins! I can’t speak for every photographer, but I would certainly offer a per head discount if that were an option…..as long as no one cancels. Just a tip 🙂 Here is a recent realtor headshot.
