A professional headshot is imperative in order to have a successful career – it sets the tone of what message the person is trying to convey professionally. As a professional photographer, I can’t stress the importance of a professional headshot for your Linked In, social media sites and especially your corporate or business website. One of the first things most people do now is check your Linked In and social media sites to see who you are and being able to see a professional photo of you lends credibility. Whether you are a small business owner, CEO of a large corporation, Realtor, dentist, doctor, veterinarian, entrepreneur, or any number of other positions, you need to represent yourself and your business in a manner that reflects trust and competence.
Remember, if you want a professional headshot, you need to go to a professional photographer!
Who needs a headshot? Headshots are not just for CEOs. Those that need a headshot include:
- Those active on LinkedIn
- Those in professional services (i.e. lawyers, consultants, real estate agents, financial planners, doctors, dentists, etc.)
- Educators (colleges and Universities)
- Public figures
- Aspiring models and actors
- Small Business Owners
