Headshots aren’t only for CEOs and models these days. It’s expected now that your business have an online presence, and displaying staff photos on the “About Us” page of your website is standard practice, to add a human element to your digital real estate. Most professionals have a profile on Linked In in addition to Facebook, Twitter, etc., all of which require a profile image. Business relationships are cultivated on so many platforms now, it has never been more important to hone your professional image.
Maybe you’re a pretty good photographer yourself (or your kid, spouse, friend, sister, or uncle is) and you figure you/they can snap a decent picture for you. Just beware: your business profile is no place for an artful “selfie” or a well-intended, casual snapshot. Naturally, the level of professionalism perceived in the first-impression you give will be in proportion with the professionalism of your image. If you skimp on your headshot, you run the risk of being perceived as a shoestring operation or, worse, lacking attention to detail and quality.
So, what do you want your headshot to communicate? Confidence? Business-savvy? Trustworthiness? Warmth? Humor? No matter what it is, we can capture a professional portrait that exemplifies your personal brand.
