Ciara Reed – A Classical Soprano Professional Headshot

Professional Headshot – Ciara Reed

by | Nov 7, 2020 | Business Promo, Headshots, Personal Branding

A professional headshot is so important in the age of social media and the need for an online presence.  Ciara Reed who is a classical Soprano and graduate from the Royal Birmingham Conservatoire, reached out for some images for just this purpose.

Ciara asked for hair and makeup for her shoot.  But, the Studio hair and makeup station is under construction.  So we took a short walk to Ffions Hair and Beauty Boutique on Kenyon Street.  Ciara knew the style she wanted and was really happy with the results.

Professional Headshot – A great result

Ciara has a lovely nature, is easy-going and a delight to shoot.  Not all of us are comfortable in front of the camera, Ciara however, could relate to being on stage and in front of an audience.  Once she starts singing, the initial nerves disappear.   Similarly, with the shoot, once she got started she was fine.  I had suggesting singing to calm any nerves and missed out on a treat.  I have since heard her and she has a beautiful voice!  You can hear her singing on her site below. 

 With Ciara opting for two wardrobe changes, I chose two complimentary setups.  The first outfit Ciara chose was casual and comfortable.  The second was a black dress she has performed in.

We amended the lighting and Ciara re-did her makeup.  I thought some of the standout images for this session came from this second set.  Additionally, Ciara happily chose some of these images for her site and social media images.  A great result for this headshot session.

That Feel-Good-Factor

 

In my experience clients worry about feeling comfortable in front of the camera.  I suggest bringing an assortment of outfits that you love and love ‘how you feel’ wearing them.  Additionally, part of my role as a photographer is to put you at ease.  That “feel-good-factor” really does translate in images.
