Headshots for Authors

A professional photo to match your professional work.

In life, there aren’t too many absolutes. As an author, you surely know that. There are many ways to tell a story, many ways to explore a genre. However, if you want to be taken seriously in the publishing world, you’ve got to have a professional headshot. But maybe you’re thinking, “I didn’t get into writing based on my looks. What difference does it make, really?” The truth is, the right photo can go a long way towards making a good impression. A professionally taken headshot can help:

      • Portray your seriousness of purpose, which can lead to a potential reader trusting you.
      • Refine and sharpen the message you’re sending about yourself.
      • Show you at your absolute best.

Having said that, there are a few things that can happen when people see the wrong photo, such as:

      • Give potential readers the wrong feeling about you
      • Deceive a potential reader, sometimes intentionally
      • Unintentionally show you at your worst
