What I use this page for:

As a photographer, I will focus on my passion as a photographer by providing tips.  I will share images with technical information about how I took and planned the photograph in this headshot blog.  Hopefully this will allow my clients to get a sense of my creative thought process as I balance the technical aspects of using the best DSLRs from Canon with my creative impulse. 

The page is designed for both my clients and other portrait professional photographers with advice gleamed from over 15 years as a professional photographer.

Get an AI headshot if you plan on using it on your Instagram, social media, dating sites and essentially anything that is not professional.   An AI headshot is a computer-generated image of you. It lacks authenticity and could damage your brand or credibility. Also, it will have no emotional appeal because it will be machine created. 

An AI created headshot has no human control over the result and is incapable of making complex choices when it comes to editing a human face.
