Raleigh Headshots

Traditional and Creative

     What I hear from clients the most is that “I need to update my LinkedIn profile.” That is one reason to have a professional headshot. However, there are many other reasons people need a professional headshot; company website, advertising, publications, press releases, business cards, etc. As a professional living in the Triangle area, you need to set your self apart from the rest of the professionals around you. Having your headshot taken by a professional photographer is literally the easiest way to put your best face forward. Let me help you or your business flourish by showing the personality behind it. No matter your experience or your comfort in front the camera, I will direct you in posing to show off the best “you.”

     Traditional business style headshots are not always best for everyone. I encourage my clients to try and set themselves apart and go for a more creative look while maintaining elegance and professionalism. Your Raleigh headshot doesn’t have to be shot in some elaborate location. Take a look through my portfolio and you will see that the majority are shot in the place of business or with a simple backdrop. This keeps the focus on you and not the surroundings. If you are looking for creative Raleigh headshots with a fast turn around, contact Nieto Photography. Check out Pour Bar’s staff page to see a range of the traditional and creative: POUR BAR
