These days so much hinges on your digital presence. Most peoples’ entire professional life is represented online, but potential employers or clients want to get a sense of who they are working with. This is why it is crucial to have a professional headshot. Think of it as the cover of your book.
A professional headshot not only adds a personal touch to your professional online presence but can also help with career advancement.
A grainy, poorly-lit photograph taken with a cell phone can make a person seem amateur and reflect negatively on the individual. On the other hand, a professional headshot with flattering lighting taken by an expert photographer can make a person stand out in a positive way. Save the selfies for the timeline and the snapshots for your travel story.
Professional headshots also lend a level of authority to your profile.
A professional headshot visually lets people know that you are an expert in your field and instills trust.
If you were going to meet a potential employer or a new client at a coffee shop, you wouldn’t just roll out of bed and show up in your sweats with uncombed hair. You want to come across with welcoming confidence and professionalism. In fact, it could cost you the job or the client if you don’t put effort into your appearance. Think of your professional headshot as the digital version of this. You want to put your best foot forward when it comes to your career.
In short, a professional headshot is absolutely worth it.
Think of it as an investment in yourself and your career. Whether you are applying for jobs, a seasoned freelancer, or already climbing the corporate ranks, let an expert photographer take your professional headshot and you (and your network) will notice the difference.
