Economists make crucial contributions to our society. In order to do their job well, economists must be self-driven, open-minded, and professional. They must also be able to convey that to any potential customers, companies, or future employers. Therefore, one of the best ways to market themselves would be to get an economist portrait. Rachel Mannahan called my office when she wanted professional portraits. 

 “I had a wonderful experience getting our studio portrait from Colby. Not only was the service top-notch, but the prices were affordable. He made us feel comfortable during the sessions, and he worked with us until we got images that we were 100% happy about.” –Rachel Mannahan 

People do not usually like getting their portraits done if they rely on amateurs to take them. The “photographer” might end up shooting with a cell phone or have no quality editing, except for maybe an overdone filter. We keep hearing feedback from potential customers that their previous shoots were not flattering. They need an experienced professional studio portrait photographer who has the right equipment and knows how to use it without thinking. That way, the photographer can focus their entire attention on setting the subject at ease and therefore get a natural-looking and flattering portrait. Rachel will be using her economist headshots for marketing purposes, her company’s website, and for her LinkedIn profile. 

Rachel Mannahan is an economist and a Ph.D. student at the University of Arizona. She is interested in research topics such as game theory, experimental economics, and behavioral economics. It was a pleasure shooting for Rachel, and I hope her studio portraits help advance her career.
