Headshots for Public Speaking
When you’re looking for the right speaker to motivate your team and talk about Financial Risk Management, you want someone who is confident and able to command the room. The Financial Risk Management & Fraud Protection Director for GoFundMe, Matthew needed looks that expressed his ability when speaking to companies about how they can grow through fundraising platforms at conferences such as the American Conference. So when Matthew came to us looking for the perfect headshots for public speaking, we knew we wanted to take a different approach to his images.
Giving off the Right Impression with Bauman Photographers
Matthew came into our studio, ready to take on his session as he began his day with outfit options to choose from plus hair & makeup to make sure that he looked his best throughout the session. As our hair & makeup artist styled his hair and we helped him choose the best of his outfits to give off the appearance he wanted, we chatted about his session & came up with a plan for the time he would spend with us to make sure he would be able to get headshots for every public speaking situation.
Walking through our studio, we worked with Matthew to get a variety of images that perfectly matched his confident, yet approachable nature for him to use for the wide variety of uses he needed. Starting on our gray cyclorama for options that would set him strikingly against the gray backdrop, we photographed Matthew with different lighting to capture the best look for headshots for public speaking at traditional conferences & more formal events. Yet for the talks he sought out a more approachable look for, we worked with him in different, more casual space such as our lobby and offices to capture a look that was both daring yet was someone you felt you could talk to easily.
After the session ended, we sat with Matthew & discussed how each of the different looks would work in different situations, helping him choose from the hundreds of images that we had taken throughout our time with him. In the end after reviewing his images, Matthew chose to purchase an additional image just to make sure he had enough options to use for all of the different situations he would speak in and to advertise himself and his services through social media. Walking away, Matthew felt even more prepared to launch this new chapter of his speaking career with the headshots for public speaking he needed!
