Cool Things My Friends Do (Week # 105) - Headshot Makeover Secrets by Jerry Hughes

Each week on this blog I enjoy highlighting some of the cool things my friends do in their personal and professional lives.

In our digital world the first impression you make could be your headshot on your website, Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter or other online community.  Too many people throw up any picture without any regard for how that photo portrays them to the world.

My friend, photographer Jerry Hughes, has a great book (available on called Headshot Makeover Secrets.  The cool part is there are two editions, one for men and one for women.  He has just "re-released" them with a new cover, new content and his website has been refreshed, too.

Jerry says: "BAD Photos Hurt, GOOD Photos Help.  Peoples first impression of you on the internet is your photograph. A picture is worth a thousand words and your photo says more about you than anything else".  He is a photographer who cares a lot about capturing the real person.

If you get this book you will learn how to take a good photo (not only as a photographer, but also as the subject.  Most people don't know how to look good in a photograph. They freeze up in front of the camera with an awkward pose and a fake cheesy smile. HEADSHOT MAKEOVER SECRETS helps you learn how to look your best in a photograph to get a great headshot and make a great first impression.

Congrats to Jerry on this book.  I read it before he took my most recent headshot and it made the whole experience of having my photo taken a more interactive experience.  Plus... He got a great pic.

No matter who will take your next picture... you should read this book!

Have A Great Day
