What is a Headshot Photograph?

Two day ago I presented to a group of business owners and asked them – What is a Headshot photograph?

I was expecting to get some creative answers, maybe a great description that I might learn…  The first hand up said ” I hate my headshot taken three days ago “, that was the best answer.  Which completely surprised me, certainly in today age of social media I expected every business professional to now headshots?  But nobody had a concise answer or description.

A Headshot is a slang word for portraits, initially it was strictly actors.  Now everyone uses that word, but its a modern image where a person illustrate their portrait for branding.  We at Art of Headshots aim at capturing the soul inside of every portrait.
