I need a better head shot than I can do myself, but I'm not interested in some extreme-hairstyle and makeup glamour shot. Can anyone recommend a good portrait photographer for businesslike photos? Thanks

Viola, if you have a digital camera, you should be able to get a decent head shot without hiring someone.
Maybe I'm confused. Are you looking for something like a clear license or business I.D. photo?
With a tripod and some simple software, you should be able to get the picture you want.
I'd like something that could be used as the author photo on a book jacket. Problem is, women authors of a certain age all seem to get the hyperglam treatment and I think that's less credible in the business world.
The pro's I've seen have white umbrellas to bounce the light around and know how to position the face to hide some less attractive neck acreage. That's the kind of help I need.
Tina is great... local...
viola - an acquaintance of mine does portrait photography.
I think most of her samples are on Facebook, but I can't link to that from work. Her blog is below - its not updated as much as her FB page, but you can get the link to that from the blog:
http://www.schoolerphotography.com I have worked with Chris on several porjects and he is affordable and good. Viola - think about doing a black and white shot in a non-traditional setting. Not knowing the book - I don't know what would be appropriate though. The setting can make you look younger too...:)
Melissa Shaner, amazing person and a wonderful photographer.
Thanks everyone. I would definitely be in favor of B&W nontraditional.
