New Contest - Win a free Headshot Photo session

I've had several people request Headshot photos recently so thought it would be fun to make that the subject of this year's contest.  If you look on LinkedIn, Twitter and Facebook you'll notice that most people don't have a very professional looking profile picture...they're mostly just snapshots taken in bad light and are often blurry.  Social media is a very popular tool to network and help increase business so having a professional image is very important especially if you're an entrepreneur, business owner, real estate agent or even just looking for a future spouse on an online dating site!

Would you like an updated Profile photo?  Here's the perfect opportunity to win a
Headshot Photo Session plus two digital images.
($150 Value)

Here's how it works:

Go to this link http://bit.ly/Y73w8M and upload a photo of yourself before 11pm on Thursday, February 14th.  Make sure it's a photo of you and preferably one that you've been using as a profile photo so we can see how badly you need a new one!  :)  No professional photos allowed.  (option: email me your photo and i'll add it to the contest for you)

From February 15th until the end of the day on the 24th, people will vote on who they think needs a new photo and the winner will be announced on February 25th.  That's it...how easy is that?!

This year's contest is going to be run through my Michelle Barbeau Photography facebook page.  If you have friends not on facebook that would like to vote for you, they are welcome to email me at michelle@barbeau.net and I will add their vote (voting does not start until the 15th).

A few rules:

  •  one entry per person
  • participant must live in the ottawa area or be willing to travel to my home studio in Ottawa
  • participants must be 21 years or older
  • winning photo session is for one person only and must take place before May 31st, 2013

Good luck, I look forward to seeing all your photos!

Feel free to pass this along to anyone that you think would benefit from a free Photo Session
