Photographer Susanne Kischnick-Meza

Portrait photographer Susanne Kischnick and her staff, make-up artist Emelie Rozier of Avant Appret and stylist Michelle Pozon of The Closet Guru, surprised us all. We were expecting to learn how to take a great portrait photo of ourselves, but instead we learned how to HAVE a great portrait photo taken of ourselves. There is a difference!

In a coordinated effort, the three image specialists made serious points about how to approach the camera so that the lens of the camera sees deeply into ones's soul so as to fully express who you are from the inside-out, rather than the outside-in. The idea is that great make-up, hair and dress make you more confident about your looks and with positive energy, one can relax enough in front of the camera to be photographed for who one really is.

There is no doubt that the photographer can make or break the kind of rapport that takes place between the camera and the subject, but these three professionals claim that the subject plays just as big a role if not more than the photographer to capture the true essence and result in a great portrait.

Don't underestimate the power of the building your image and brand in the media! Portraits, or what's known as "headshots," are used today in a variety of ways to make an important impression. Photos used in social media sites such as Facebook and Linkedin are crucial to success for networking and getting jobs. If you're wanting more dates from your matchmaking sites, then be sure the photo is what will determine your success rate.
