We’ve all heard that a picture is worth a thousand words, but I believe a great portrait can speak volumes. When putting your face out there in the world; be it on your website, LinkedIn, or even online dating profiles, the picture you choose to represent yourself tells a story to your audience about who you are. It’s been speculated that initial impressions about a person’s character are formed within the first tenth of a second of seeing them. That being the case, it’s important to evaluate your photos and determine what it is they say about you.
After examining his own photos, Francis Fung decided he needed something new to convey the professionalism and personality he has to offer as a business consultant. He reached out to me via Facebook after searching for a freelance photographer in Tokyo and booked a portait photography session for early September. After the usual conversation about locations and what clothes to wear, we discussed the even more important issue of what message he wanted to send with these photos. After getting to know him a bit, I found that Francis is an outgoing, friendly guy with a genuine desire to help people reach their full potential. That was exactly what I strived to capture during his portrait session and I think we managed to do just that.
If you are feeling stuck in your career and are unsure how to advance or make a change that better suits your personality or goals, Francis is a wealth of information and would love to work with you. Get in touch with him via his business website, Sloane Japan.
And if like Francis, you’ve found that your pictures are a bit dated or don’t represent the real you, contact me to book a portrait session in Tokyo or throughout Japan.
