Enhance your online presence with a professional headshot

April 02, 2024  •  Leave a Comment

In the digital world, first impressions are made at a glance.

Quality images convey professionalism, competence, and authenticity, instilling confidence in your audience. When you present yourself in a polished and professional manner, you signal that you take your work seriously and can be trusted to deliver.

So how should you prepare for a business portrait. One of the most common questions I am asked is, “what color should I wear?” 

When sitting for a business portrait, I recommend a color darker than your skin. Why? Because I want to highlight your face, not your clothing. Earthtones like gray, green and brown are great choices. Dark blue is also an excellent choice, it’s the color of trust, honesty, and dependability. If red is your signature color that’s great, just know that it’s a bold choice for a headshot and likely to be more memorable than your smile.

Another frequent question is how much time it will take.

When you come in to be photographed, I block 20 to 30 minutes. I don’t want you to feel rushed. If you feel rushed, your images will look rushed. During that time, I’ll photograph the left and the right side of your face. I’ll have you sit for some images and stand for a few as well.

My goal is to have you looking and feeling your best. Professional headshots are not just about capturing a flattering image; they are about telling your story. When you invest in professional photography, you enhance your online presence, build trust and credibility, and make a memorable impression that sets you apart.

Your story is waiting to be told. Contact LPT Images for the headshot that is the opening chapter.

 

 


Lost Race Car Project

January 18, 2021  •  2 Comments

I started working on a photography project late this fall that I'm calling Lost Race Cars. Dale Earnhardt Jr.'s documentary series about Lost Speedways got me thinking about what happened to the old race cars, where they are located and what do they look like now. These cars remind me of when I was a kid going to the races with my family.  A friend and I always talk about how the cars were hand painted, each with a different look. Every driver had a little special twist to the look of their car including the number. Special thanks to Jay McDonald and the Spetens for letting me photograph their cars. Layn


  

 


A Passion for Books

November 22, 2020  •  1 Comment

Sue of Huntington Books is passionate about books.  So much so that she hates to see a book, any book, thrown out. I talked to Sue about her bookstore at a meeting one day and her love for her work was obvious. During our conversation, she referenced a bible verse from the Book of Job 19:23, “Oh that my words were written! Oh that they were inscribed in a book!" I captured these photographs of Sue in her store. Layn

 


A passion for cars and engines

November 13, 2020  •  1 Comment


I helped Wayne out this fall by photographing an auction. We got talking and I was reminded of his love of older vehicles. When he talks about them, it is always what kind of engine it is and what needs to be fixed. He enjoys talking about cars and engines almost as much as he enjoys working on them. Here he is in his shop with one of his new favorites. Layn



A Passion for Riding

October 15, 2020  •  1 Comment

I photographed Rob because of his love for riding his motorcycle. He told me, "I always say that when I am on my motorcycle I know exactly why a dog hangs his head out the window!" Riding is his therapy, how he unwinds. Retired from the National Guard, Rob is an adventurer at heart. I love to photograph people like him who have a passion in their heart for the things that they love to do.  Layn
