With the ease of taking a selfie and relatively inexpensive photo editing software, why pay a professional photographer for a head shot? Maybe your cousin is a hobby photographer and will be happy to take some photos in your living room for you.
Your head shot is your introduction to your audience, and you want to put your best face forward. Just as they judge your book by the cover, they may judge you by your photo. Featured on business cards, manuscripts, your blog, and other media, a high-quality, professional head shot shows readers, agents, publishers, and others that you take your career seriously. A professional photographer will help you look your best when you meet your audience.
Plus, if you haven’t updated your head shot recently, your photo may reflect how you think you look but not how you appear to others.

Mount Hermon has a team of professional photographers offering a great deal on author head shots this year. Here’s what Angela Breidenbach, president of Christian Authors Network, said about the photo shoot she had done at last spring’s Mount Hermon conference:
I am thrilled with both the result and the variety of photos taken for my head shot at Mount Hermon during the Christian writer’s conference! I use these photos for branding on my podcast, book covers, business cards, blog tours, website, and all my social media bios. Love, love, love how professional and versatile the experience and the photos have been for me.
