As a recent graduate, Nikhil realised how important it is to have good professional headshots. When I photographed Nikhil, he’d just landed his first professional role in Queensland. So before moving interstate he wanted to capture good quality professional headshots so as to start his professional career looking the part!
What do you do? Tell us a bit about what you do.
I am a Mechanical Engineer who recently graduated, and about to start as a Validation Engineer at Viatris, a leading pharmaceutical company in Brisbane, QLD.
Tell me about how you got into your field.
During my Masters of Engineering, I worked as an Intern at a pharmaceutical company, where I started to learn more about this exciting industry and the important role it plays in people’s lives. That was when I decided to work in this area.
What is the best piece of career advice you’ve received?
If you need to ask someone for help, don’t overthink how you would be judged. Just ask; even if you haven’t met them before. People are willing to help, and they feel happy about it. You miss 100% of the shots you don’t take.
Why did you choose to have professional profile photos taken and what will you use your portraits for?
I had always been thinking of getting good professional photographs for my LinkedIn profile. It was only when I got a call to join Viatris, that I just emailed Elizabeth (Lizzy) to book me in after looking at her excellent reviews on Google.
Tell us about your experience working with her. Were you happy with the results of your shoot?
Lizzy was great at capturing my professional portraits. Her knowledge and experience in photography is unmatchable. She knew what kind of attire would be best for me. All the photos that she took of me during the session turned out to be great; so great that it was really difficult for me to select my final ones. Would surely recommend her.
