Stacy Kaat, Wisconsin Business Owners Organizer and Professional Photographer – Presenting more knowledge than you ever thought possible about a professional headshot.

Four years ago, when I restarted my photography
business, I noticed how business had changed because of the internet. People were putting profile images of themselves on professional websites that were far from professional. I know that people that are busy doing business and don’t realize the importance of the image they put online for the world to see and how it could ruin their reputation. I realized that I had a skill-set that I could use to help people look their professional best and convey a message about who they are in the business world.

My background as a hair and makeup artist and 20 plus years of expertise working in the commercial photography world kept me on top of every detail from lighting people and the environment to clothing, makeup, hair, and managing the visual clutter that was often present in an environment. My job also entailed making clients comfortable so they would feel confident and express that confidence in their photographs. The commercial photographers I worked with demanded that I oversee and manage the shoot so they could focus on photography. They expected me to make the clients comfortable as well. I learned how to do all that and make the photo shoot fun too!
