I’ve always wanted to specialize in one thing; to invest all of my effort, talent and resources into something I love doing and take that to another level.
I’m excited to announce that, starting now, Studio J Photography will be headshots exclusively – expressive, natural, confident portraits for professionals, entrepreneurs, academics and actors. The following ad gives some idea of what Studio J headshots are all about;
Individual portraits are what first turned me on to photography . . . and that was from the sense I got of the person in a great portrait. For me, it’s the person that’s interesting; not the photo. When I opened my studio in July 2008, my slogan – and my chief talent as a photographer – was “Portraits that Radiate Personality”. I like a simpler tagline now – “The Headshot Specialist” – but I don’t think my mission has changed much. I’ll just be much more focused on it now.
For those viewing the ad on a smaller screen, the words read;
Natural portraits of you.
Comfortable in your own skin
– Confident –
happy to be yourself and not
“project an image” to impress.
Playing up your native strengths.
Showing your real character
Unique because you ARE unique
because a photographer
telling you how to sit,
where to put your hands,
where to point your chin –
is using someone else’s
body language – not yours!
Pasting the same directed smile
on your face as everybody else’s
is asking you to pretend to be
someone you’re not.
Pretending to be someone you’re not . . .
looks stiff and awkward –
and the exact opposite of confident!
feeling great about being yourself
– fearlessly expressing your thoughts,
your values, your feelings,
your strengths, your opinions,
your tastes and your wishes.
You can look great AND
