Episode # 43 - The Art of Headshots with Carlos Taylhardat
Carlos Taylhardat is the CEO and Founder of the Art of Headshots. He shares his story of understanding why it is so important to find the right photographer for your brand. Carlos works with clients to pull out their 'essence" not just creating a good scene.
"FALLING IN LOVE WITH YOURSELF DOES NOT MAKE YOU VAIN OR SELFISH, IT MAKES YOU INDESTRUCTIBLE"
As a little boy, he admired his father’s ability to capture high images. He was a diplomat and travelled around the world – he would follow him everywhere. His favourite shots of his dads were always, without fail, photography of people.
In 1985, while studying photography at Claude Watson School for the Arts in Toronto, Carlos was mesmerized by the most outstanding portrait photograph he had ever seen: National Geographic Magazine’s cover of June 1985 – the Afghan Girl by Steve McCurry.
Little did he know that 30 years later, his mission would be to recreate the feeling of the Afghan Girl in every headshot, by capturing the spirit inside everyone who he has the honour to photograph.
In the 1990s, he worked with troubled youth and their families for the Ministry of Children and Families, the Vancouver School Board and various non-profit societies. During those 14 years, as a youth worker and family therapist, he always wondered about working with people at their best rather than their worst.
Counselling taught him to interact with his clients as if it was a session, bringing out their best throughout each interaction. Today, his clients have a mini-session, just like family therapy, but it’s fun, easy and always produces excellent results.
Carlos' dream came true through Art of Headshots Studio.
