Video Headshot

Show your website visitors who you are – not just what you look like.

Every professional needs a headshot – a photo taken by a professional photographer for use on their website, LinkedIn profile or in proposals. If you want to stand out from the crowd, you should tell your story with a video headshot.

Why a Video Headshot?

Text, Photo, Video ComparisonPeople love to watch video online – it helps us to connect with the person in the video and gather clues about their personality, professionalism, sense of humor, etc. A photo and some words doesn’t convey nearly the level of information that a video does. If you’re in a business where your clients need to know, like and trust you, then video is the answer.

Video headshots can be placed on your website’s About page, your LinkedIn profile or your YouTube account. These are all places for you to tell your story – reveal why you are so excited about your business – and connect to your audience. It’s your opportunity to tell your audience why you are the perfect person to solve their problems. Your About page and LinkedIn Profile probably have a professional headshot showing what you look like – but a video can show your visitors who you are – and help them determine if they want to work with you (or equally important – if they are not a good fit.)

What’s included in the basic package: $599 (plus $200 surcharge for November / December recordings.)

  • A 30 to 90 second long video of you speaking directly to your website visitor.
  • A professional video with a white or black background.
  • 1-2 headshot photos.
  • A 30 minute phone call to prepare prior to the recording day, including direction on preparing your script.
  • Up to 90 minutes with a professional videographer recording your video in my SE Portland home studio.
  • A teleprompter to read your script while looking into the lens. You’ll need to prepare a script in advance.
  • Up to 20 words or your logo on screen.
  • Professional editing with one opportunity to request changes.
  • Directions for embedding the video into your website.
