A helping hand is good to have now more than ever. With affordable tools enabling newcomers and work being accessible by a global audience, It takes more than talent and creativity to successfully pursue a profession in the arts. Getting the word out about one's work can become easier with strong images representing you and your work to your audience.
Selecting Your Image Style
Other types of images include a profile image for use with social media or other professional profile sites and promotional images of you engaging in the activity you are promoting. The social media image can get more mileage out of 8x10 headshot such as the example below. This is Nikki Cherry, a stage and screen actress and vocalist. She intends to use the image on acting profile sites to provide a digital version of her resume and experience.
The above images of Perry Winkler will be used on his professional website and social media page. He is both an active watercolor artist and art teacher. The headshot on the left is great for presenting oneself to galleries, competitions, and other professional development opportunities. The classroom image is better suited to specifically promoting workshops and art class sessions. The type of image you need is wholly dependent on your goals for marketing yourself and your work.
