A head shot isn’t just something that actors and models need to get work. In the 21st-century digital world, a professional photo can benefit everyone. “A great head shot is your first impression,” said Carly Van Veldhuizen, a Twin Cities stylist. “With social media and our online presence playing such a huge role today in the success of our businesses, it is now more important than ever to be seen often, and in the best possible light,” she said. That’s why Van Veldhuizen is teaming up with Diane Holetz, owner of the Vintage Type, to offer “Good Taste Sessions.” For $200, you’ll get five digital head shots, complete with hair and makeup and a styled background. The next session is April 4-5 at the Vintage Type’s warehouse studio, 106 W. Water St., St. Paul. Sign up at www.goodtastesessions.com.
