This is how it usually goes down: I’m asked to speak somewhere. I send my bio and headshot. I am greeted at the conference by the organizer who has a look of horror on his or her face. Why does this happen, you ask? It’s because there is a huge disconnect between my headshot and the reality. This is the problem when you ask one of the best photographers in the industry to shoot you. Blake Little has made a long and successful career photographing entertainment and sports celebrities. He makes everyone look amazing and unique. Last week, I had a new headshot made. Primarily because that look of terror on people’s faces was increasing, as I was five years younger in the last headshot. And for those of you who still ask how I get my hair this color, I don’t. It happens by itself. Without the help of Gill Hodgson (Mick Hodgson of Ph.D’s wife) at Taboo Hair Care, it would be a wacky, crazy, wavy mess. So here’s the secret: get a haircut by one of the best people in town, have your photograph made by a famous celebrity photographer, and retouch the hell out of it.
