From time to time we need to have new professional images taken of ourselves to use on website, on social media and in other marketing materials.

What, you may wonder, can a graphic designer have to say about professional portrait photography? Isn’t this the expert field of photographers, personal stylists and make-up artist. Sure.

Take some time and look and listen to my 3 simple tips before you book (and pay for) the next photoshoot. Share the video with your photographer. You may save time, money and frustration.
