Make an Impression
A good headshot gets compliments from your friends.
A great headshot makes strangers want to meet you.
Hi, I'm Mike Petrachenko, the photographer behind bam!headshots - and I believe that headshots are more important than ever in our digital-visual world. Why? Because more often than not, the way you make a first impression is with your headshot.
A good headshot will make you look good. Any quality headshot will do that. But a great headshot really is a portrait. We used to say that a portrait captured some sort of deep truth about a person - like Yousef Karsh's famous 'Bulldog' portrait of Churchill: it wasn't just a picture of Churchill, it WAS Churchill.
These days we say it differently. We talk about 'brand' and 'message' - but the idea is the same. I'm here to do more than just make a picture of you. I want to make a picture that IS you. Because that is what stops people in their tracks. That is how you make an unforgettable first impression. And that's what I want to do for you: create a headshot that will help you consistently make an unforgettable first impression.
