Headshots for Professionals - by Dallas Photographer Lisa McNiel





It would be silly for me to try to convince you of the importance of an online presence when it comes to all forms of careers. You don't have to be in Real Estate, Law, or Banking to need a good headshot.

These were taken last year, but I've been doing head shots lately and wanted to share some done for Melanie, Bill and Kymberly.




The following is taken directly from a blog about how to build a good website to improve conversion rates.  You can view it all here.

"You should almost ALWAYS include a picture of yourself and your team.
Here’s the deal:
People like to connect with people… not faceless corporations and businesses.
Most recently I’ve ran some eye-tracking tests on Social Triggers.com and I’ve found that people spend an inordinate amount of time on my footer.
Why?
Yes, they’re looking for what they can do next, but I also have a picture of myself, and a biography down there too.
And there’s one more benefit for using a real photo on your site:
People want to do business with people they know, like and trust... If you don’t show your photo, people often think the reason why is a bad one, and they assume you’re untrustworthy.
Look at it like this:
Would you ever buy something from someone wearing a mask?
I wouldn’t.
So use your real photo to build your credibility, thus increasing your conversion rates."
OK, so any photo will do... right?  WRONG.  I don't think I even need to explain why.  We all want to put our best foot forward.  I will help you do so with head shots for your website, office and any communication or social media!

The Senior Model Program at Lisa McNiel Photography is a way for a small group of the Class of 2020 to experience group styled shoots in different situations, practice their modeling skills before taking Senior Pictures, have fun, create a memory, and receive extra media files through these at no additional cost.




What are we looking for? Well-groomed Girls and Guys with positive, friendly personalities who are involved in the community, active on social media, and like Lisa McNiel Photography's style and image quality enough to share and promote it personally and on social media in an authentic way. I'd like to represent different sports and activities and schools, but also include friend groups as the energy between them is natural and contagious.


Senior Models are required to book a session with me, and a $250 retainer will be collected if you are chosen. It goes toward your Senior Session and to hold your spot on my calendar. There is no extra fee to be a model.




I plan to do 3 styled shoots that all my Senior Models will be invited to. Last year, we did Prom, Santa Hats with your dog, and College Shirt group model sessions. Models should plan to be involved in the Prom shoot.  There will also be smaller styled shoots!
