Why Aren’t My Photos Working Online?”

If you’ve taken professional photos that represent what you are marketing AND you followed all of the suggestions you’ve read in my blog … well then, it may be a matter of SELECTION. Remember I said to choose wisely? But what does that mean? Here is a post from one of the photographers I’ve suggested who has some wisdom to add that might help you out!

“Why Aren’t My Photos Working Online?” I get asked this question all the time and I consistently see actors making the same mistake, overwhelming the buyer with too many choices.  Think of it this way, you’re a salesman selling your product, in this case your look, and if you give the buyer too many choices, he will move on.  It’s basic Sales 101.  When I look at online profiles, I often see over 10 images all with the same two or three expressions but with the same outfits in varying poses and hairstyles with pictures from multiple headshot sessions over a span of who knows how many years! I know the urge to showcase ALL the different looks you’ve ever had over the years is strong, but all that really does is leave casting directors wondering what you look like now and what you’re really selling.  To put it simply, it’s redundant.  Thanks to Jane Park Smith’s generous willingness to volunteer her website, you can take a look at a sample HERE of what NOT to do.  Simply scroll down to her headshots section.
