If your profile photo isn’t doing you justice, you need a professional headshot
And let’s face it, if you are using a selfie or mobile phone image, you really should upgrade to a professional headshot. Why? well, we live in such a visual age. And more than ever, images of us proceed us in business and in our personal lives. When you receive an email from someone it often contains an image of them.
When contacts pop up on your phone they are frequently accompanied by a photo. And it goes without saying that Instagram and Facebook and other social media have profile photographs attached. Similarly, if someone mentions a contact to us, whether personal or professional, we Google them and have a look at their photo. Which is why professional headshots are so important.
Consequently, we are very often able to make judgements on the appearance of people we have never met. And when we do meet them it seems like we already ‘know’ them. Now why wouldn’t you want that image to be a the result of a studio or location shoot with a professional photographer? You get the best possible lighting, angle and pose. Not to mention professional retouching, not Instagram filters!
Remember that aAnd if you don’t invest in professional photography, what message does that send out? Perhaps that you aren’t worth the investment? And what sort of message is that sending out?
Whether it’s for social media, dating sites, or business, a professional headshot or portrait is invaluable. What is yours saying about you? What image are you projecting and have you put your best foot forward? Be your personal brand manager!
