Some people love having their picture taken but the majority of people exist somewhere between not really wanting to have their portrait taken to absolutely hating it. So for those of you that don’t relish the thought of having your picture taken, an express headshot is the thing for you, right.
except here’s the thing a quick headshot is easier to achieve if you’re not in a rush! The more relaxed you are the quicker you’ll get through your headshot, basically.
I know it sounds like a catch 22 but you can do it. No matter how much you’re dreading having your picture taken try and chill out and you’ll get through it much quicker. It’s all about being present. Don’t get caught up thinking about all the awful photographs of you that might exist. Don’t stress about how terrible you might look in the photographs. `just relax.

It wasn’t awkward it was easy and he looks great. Oh and he was finished within 5 minutes too. And there you have it an express headshot.
