A prescription to look credible.

Don’t let your headshot be the weak link on your residency application.

Philadelphia Headshot Photography Man Corporate Mehmet by Jason Ranalli

You’ve compiled your list of residency programs. Your ERAS application is nearing its completion. And you’ve started writing your residency personal statement.

You have complete control over how you are perceived with many of these elements.

But what about your headshot?

Many times it’s difficult to get a photo of yourself that you even like let alone one that makes you look trustworthy and competent.

That’s where I come in.

Let’s face it, we’re not actors.  None of us really know what to do in front of a camera.  If we did, then our high school yearbook and DMV photos would have turned out a lot better.

What if you could take control of your headshot?

A professional headshot is more than just a portrait or a selfie.  It is a visual cue that sends the signal out that you are competent, trustworthy and approachable, aka the right person for the job.

You are that person.

Regardless of where you are finishing medical school I will guide you in making your headshot say the right things about you.

Now the details

Image format for ERAS

The format of your file is important for uploading into ERAS.  I will deliver the file in the exact format require for easy upload to the ERAS system:

Dimensions: 2.5 in. x 3.5 in — Resolution: 150 dpi — Max File Size: 100kb

Session Prep Guide

Don’t know what clothes to bring or how to prepare?  No problem!  I’ll send you a session prep guide so that you are completely prepared way ahead of your shoot.

Image review

Did I mention this was a collaboration?  Of course it is.  We’re going to look at these images in full size together on the computer to both refine the details as we shoot and choose the images for retouching.

Expert coaching

Many headshots fall short of giving someone the credibility and approachability they need because nobody guided the person on what to do in front of the camera.  Not the case here!  I will hand-hold you on the facial expressions and body language every step of the way.

High end retouching

These aren’t high school yearbook photos, folks.  These are high end headshots designed to promote you.  That means high end retouching to cover blemishes, soften wrinkles, cut out redness, remove stray hairs and anything else that prevents this headshot from being the best version of you.

Simple as a conversation

Think headshots are awkward and difficult?  Think again.  If you can hold a conversation then you can get a good headshot, I promise.  Just keep talking and let me do the work.
