5 Reasons Why Men need a Professionally Done Portraits of Themselves

You are too Important NOT to be Remembered!

We have two important questions for you to answer. First one is when was the last time you had your portraits taken by a professional photographer? Second question is is when was the last time you had any of your images printed? If you answer is never or more than three (3) years you need to read this!

Did you know that more than 95% of the men seem to have forgotten the value of professionally done portraits and having them in printed format? We believe this is all due to digital revolution and the raise of smartphones with their cameras that overtook traditional pocket cameras. These days we store images on hard drives and clouds and believe that is an equally good solution when compared to printed images which they aren’t. Here’s 8 reasons why each man must have their photographs taken by a professional photographer.


1. Your Portrait is a Statement of Your Achivements

This is very obvious one but often forgotten. Whats the point of achieving great things in life when you nothing to leave behind? A portrait of you is a statement who you are and what you have achieved. When you visit any museum you see portraits of great men who have achieved something and there is no reason why you should not be no different. So far we have yet to met a man who claims they aren’t worth the of a professionally created portrait of themselves.


2. Loved Ones Remember You from Your Printed Portraits

A professionally printed portrait of you is still today the best way ensure your family and next generations will remember who you were. Images that are not printed are eventually lost and forgotten so do you want that to happen to your legacy? You are not doing any favours to your family by passing them hundreds of thousands smartphone images from your life. It is your responsibility to ensure how you will be remembered. Don’t let some poorly done night out snapshot to be how the next generation will remember you.

3. Professionally Done Portrait of You is Your Ultimate Business Card

These days people can quickly tell good from bad and most men use poor quality photos on their professional profiles. Is your professional business headshot or profile photo up to at the same standards as you are or are they in fact embarrassing you professionally without you realising it? A professionally done portrait of you does not only increase your status in the eyes of people around you, but tells that you should to be taken seriously.



4. Your Portrait is Your Golden Ticket to Finding The One

If you are single and currently looking for that special one then how much is that person worth to you? If you are signed up for these platforms where people simply swipe left of right you profile pictures have to be impressive to get attention. Anyone using those platforms and apps can instantly if that profile photo of yours was taken by an amateur or a professional photographer. If it was taken by the latter you chances of getting positive response are 100% better as it shows you have taken time to represent you as someone who cares about their appearance and status. When you hire a photographer to create a professional portrait of you, you instantly increase your response rates and appeal more desirable to those you are wanting to ask for out. If you have not had luck with finding that right one there is a good chance that your poorly done profile photo is the reason for it.


5. Your Portrait is a Confidence & Motivation Booster

As men we work very hard to achieve our goals. For some that can be establishing a successful business while for some it could be as simple as losing weight. When you have achieved something it is always worth to celebrate those moments and what is better than commissioning a professional photographer to take a portrait of you! By displaying a portrait of the new you in your home you are constantly reminding yourself about your values and your latest achievements. For many men a professionally done portrait can help them to keep their ideal weight as it reminds them that good things are worth maintaining.
