The White House Area Chamber of Commerce is creating an opportunity for the individuals in the community to get a professional headshot taken for business purposes.
This event will take place on August 16 at the Chamber office from 10:00am to 3:00pm. The cost is 20 dollars for members and 50 dollars for future members. Local photographer, Peter Stratton, with Stratton DV Imaging, will be taking the headshots and individuals will receive two edited photos. The Chamber highly encourages individuals to dress according to their profession.
According to Robert Montgomery, Executive Recruiter at RECRUITERMIXER, it is important to get a professional headshot taken because you want to represent your business in the right way. Montgomery said, “You might deal with other businesses or with the general public, but a professional headshot will put confidence into your business and make your clients (both businesses and public) more willing to deal with you.”
If you are interested in this opportunity, you must have an appointment. You can schedule your time by calling the Chamber at 615-672-3937 or emailing Mandy Christenson at firstname.lastname@example.org. Attached you will find two examples of what to do and what not to do when using a headshot for business purposes.
