I get a lot if traffic to my blog from people interested in more information about how to pose for a headshot. I am always looking for good examples and recently came across a local photographer that I think has it figured out.
His name is Peter Holst and his website is http://www.holstphotographic.com. He states the obvious that “Building a strong brand is the key to success” and refers to his service as photo branding. While his photos are not technically head and shoulder headshots, if you cropped any of these the headshot would excellent.
