    To be honest, for a website, I dont think its very personal.

    Im no marketing major though so I dont know what people want. My ignorance leads me to believe you should have something that shows a more personal side of you though.

    :dunno:

    I'd say the only problem is it doesn't "look" like you. A person seeing that picture wouldn't recognize you one the street like they could with a picture at a more natural angle...and with your face showing.

    True about the website comments, maybe I'll try a more standard shot with more of my face showing and just holding the camera.

    Not quite sure about the hat comment...

    You're a nice looking guy. Don't hide behind the camera.

    My problem with those types of shots is how I can look at my "photographers" group in my facebook friends and find the exact same shot at least 10 times in 5 minutes. Its just so way overdone that it becomes boring..hell even I have a similar one.

    Try one without a fucking camera? if you're posting photos of yourself on your photography website, you don't need to further advertise the fact that you're a photographer. People will be able to figure that part out.

    Too intimidating. You need to show that you're a friendly person who will make people feel comfortable in front of the camera. More face, less camera.

    I'd rather show off my work in my entrance rather than my face. IMO, i'd rather hire a photographer that can produce amazing shots instead of one that "looks" nice.
