Litigium at Patric Pop Portrait Studio: How to find a satisfactory solution for everyone
When Nati Gomez and Mathieu Parreaux came to see me at my photo studio, in addition of creating solo headshots, we agreed on creating a portrait with both founders of Litigium on the same image. Since Litigium is all about common ground between two parties, inviting dialogue by letting go, I wanted to create a setting where both of them harmonise as much as they do in real life.

The Importance of Updating Your Headshots

As professional Headshot Photographer, I do keep preaching my clients the importance of updating their headshots on a regular base.

Some might argue that this is a sales tactic to generate extra business. While they are not wrong that clients returning for a new photo session do make me happy – but then, I do offer them a repeat client discount on future sessions – the reason behind my statement reaches far deeper.

The new updated me, reflecting my personal branding.

My old Headshot as used on my business card. Time to change the cards!

My old Headshot as used on my business card. Time to change the cards!

It has been scientifically proven that a good headshot portrait increases the recognition value of any candidate or prospect business partner.

In short, having a headshot that represents you does help the other party identify you more easily. A prospective employer will be reassured that the candidate tells the truth, even if only when the headshot matches the real person. Can you believe how an up to date headshot builds trust and has any first conversation starting with the right energy?

Over the past year I did experience it at numerous occasions that my own clients did expect someone else!
When they looked up my website, they saw a creative, with longer hair and shaven.
However, some time ago, I decided to get my hair cut quite short, and to grow a hint of a beard.
You could say, going from semi-hippie to modern day hipster.

Often times, when a new client arrived, I found some of them confused as to seeing my headshot not reflecting my current look. Occasionally, this even created a moment of distrust as my personal branding did not match with the present moment. They would say “… but it is so easy for you to get a great headshot, why did you not update it?
 
Truth is that it is super hard to get, what I call a “high-end selfie”, a decent self-portrait.
There is no one to direct you, who guides you in minimal increments of millimeters. Sometimes, I wished I could clone myself for art-directing my alter ego!

Now, that I just took the time to redo my own headshot, I do feel better. Much better.
My personal brand lines up again with my persona.
It is a true confidence builder.
And I am also confident that the future prospects who inquire for their headshots taken, book the guy who is in charge of crafting good stuff for himself.

Looking forward to hearing your thought on this subject.

Patric Pop
The Geneva Associate of Peter Hurley's global Headshot Crew.

Business Portrait in Market Magazine of Headhunter Christophe Mauron

While over the years I have been getting used to see my work published in different magazines, it is always a pleasure to discover my portraits in printed format. It makes me feel like a kid before the Christmas tree, regardless of brochures, print media and magazines or a company newsletter.

This time, I found my portrait of Christope Mauron, Founder of Lotus Partners Executive Search in the Swiss magazine Market that aims for the HWNI (High Net Worth Individuals).

As Headhunter recruiting candidates to top level management postions, Mr. Christophe Mauron knows only too well the importance of an excellent picture. That is .also why he had hired me for taking the Headshots of all the recruiters at Lotus Partners one year earlier.

At the occasion of the photoshoot organized to show the new and beautiful offices in down-town Genève / Geneva, Mr. Mauron asked me to add a portrait shoot for the press publication to the to-do list. We seized the opportunity of radiant weather showing the sights of Geneva overlooking the roofs of old-town from the last floor of the building near Rive and the Rue du Rhône.

The deadline to hand in the final image was tight, but I made sure to Rush deliver the business portrait to the client.

Now, it would have been just so great, if only the magazine would have added the credit to my image. Nobody is perfect.

New beast on the block.

Did I mention that my main camera dropped to the floor and was totalled when I tripped over the tethering cable during a corporate headshot session at SITA? I was broken on that day.
And to my sheer happiness, my photodealer just me delivered the only a99ii they received in Genève / Geneva, the new flagship of Sony.

All I can say is: Holy Smokes! Welcome home, baby.
I am sure that this beauty and my artistic talent will allow me to push my professional work even further.

I am looking forward to use this beast on the corporate photoshoot for Headshots and Business Portraits next week, that I just got signed and booked this afternoon!

Stay tuned, my friends. The future looks bright at the end of the tunnel.

This testimonial from my client Zhanara is a wonderful example of how our online presence is valued.
« I always wanted to do a professional headshot which would look beautiful yet smart and natural, which is always a challenge when you work in non-beauty industry as it is hard to keep a balance between all of them. I enjoyed working with Patric and grateful for all ideas and coaching he provided me with to make my best shot. When I changed my profile picture on LinkedIn, the visibility of my profile has increased by 167% vs the previous week – people really do pay attention to your look! »

The way how we position ourselves in the wide world of the interlinked web determines also who notices us. Chances are that we leave a lasting first impression on the viewer, and that recruiters bookmark your profile for future reference.

While I do consult and coach countless clients in outplacement who are seeking to change jobs and transition to new careers, I do have the chance to also work often with individuals who put emphasis on their perceived value.

Investing in an updated Headshot generates improved interest in your profile, stirring up a conversation with business partners, potential clients and within the company itself.

What outcome would you hope happening to you as a result of a new Headshot?
