WHY DO I NEED HEADSHOTS?

In the digital age, the importance of being known, liked and trusted can not be over emphasised. As a small business owner, you are the FACE of the business, and it's YOU that your customers need to know, like and trust. Having an image that represents you and your business in the best light, is the whole point of professional headshots. 

Having professional photos makes you look more professional. A variety of photos means that you can tailor your images for various social media formats, for your website and you can change things up as you want to. 

Hiring a photographer for just your photos can be unattainable for many businesses. This collaboration project was started to make headshots available to all businesses with limited financial resources. Empowering emerging businesses to present themselves in the best possible light. 

We want to help you put your Best Face Forward in your Business!
