Lincoln Chamber Business of the Week - Thursday :: Springfield, Illinois, Headshot Photographer

We're already four days into celebrating the Lincoln/Logan County Chamber of Commerce Business of the Week here at Michael Gowin Photography. You could win one of two FREE headshot sessions that I'm giving away this week--make sure you enter for your chance to win. It's super-simple: just follow the instructions and you're all set. NOTE: If you enter by "liking" the Chamber posts on Facebook, make sure you add the Chamber as a friend as well (if you're not already). You'll have to do both to qualify.

A flattering portrait or headshot is a great investment for professionals. You can use your image for publicity purposes and web sites as well as social media sites like twitter, LinkedIn, and Facebook.

This image was made in the Lincoln Public Library in downtown Lincoln. When preparing for your own headshot portrait, here are nine tips I recommend.
