Professional Photos

Postby Drake014 » Fri Sep 14, 2012 3:45 am

I lost my professional photos in a computer crash (I also hated them so very very much) and I'm looking at starting at a firm shortly. What's the best way about finding a good photographer? I don't really have close friends in my area now that I've moved away from school so I can't ask for recommendations. I'd also like to take a couple of non suit and tie photos for more casual use.

Are the casual ones for dating websites where you can screen and callback ladies?

Of course. I was thinking of posing in a robe with a red rose in my mouth.

Sears is where I took the ones I hate with a passion. I will never do that again. Craigslist worries me because you really don't know what you're going to get.

FWIW, in pro photographer circles, togs that advertise on CL have about as much respect as this forum would give someone attending Cooly at sticker because they have the most chairs in their library....

ETA, Pros also hate being called "togs."

On the topic of professional photographs, I am shocked looking at LinkedIn how many of my classmates have photographs that are just plain bad. Blurry, in a crowd, from far away, at a party, with a spouse, doing something embarassing, etc. Everyone can't afford to get a fancy professional headshot, but even a cropped, clear candid photo from a reception or family wedding would be an improvement.
