Should you include a Headshot with your Resume?? The short answer is no, do not include a portrait in your resume or job application. It is not required and most employers don't want it there anyway.
This image is from a recent Headshot Portrait Session at my studio with John Bender. John is a Consultant with Investors Group. Here are a few words from John about his business and his ideal clients:
Al Jones, Calgary Business Owner We work when we need to... I received a call on Saturday afternoon from a new client wondering if I work on the weekend or not. He wanted a new headshot made as soon as possible and didn't want to wait for normal business hours to get it done. Part of being a custom portrait photographer means that I work when my clients need me to work. As long as I have no prior commitments then my hours are very flexible and I can usually accommodate my clients to get their work done when they need it done. I was able to get Al into my home studio on Saturday evening and had his final retouched portrait out to him in less than 24 hours from when he first contacted me. You can actually use my online booking tool to find a time that works for you. If you don't see what you need in the available hours, or if you really need something done on very short notice then you can always call me at 403-615-3708 and we can chat about what you need and make a plan to get it done.
