Introducing Head Shot Station. We are excited to offer this year’s conference attendees an opportunity to have a professional head shot taken for their personal or business use. We have arranged with a local photography studio to set up a mini-photo studio in the exhibit hall on Friday morning of the conference. All professionals need a good photo of themselves, of course, but an opportunity like this can be especially valuable to freelancers who can’t turn to an in-house photographer when photos are requested.
Sittings on your own would normally cost hundreds of dollars, but we will be charging just a $10 sitting fee at the conference registration desk for those who want to take advantage. Shots will take just a few minutes and you’ll be able to choose your background. Available sittings will be limited, so you’ll want to inquire at the registration desk when you check in for the conference.
Here are details about how the Head Shot Station will work.
