Professional Headshots – why does it matter so much?
Life is about relationships. A headshot is often your first engagement with potential clients and speaks volumes about who you are – whether or not you’re reputable, like-able, knowledgeable, trustworthy, friendly….Viewers judge whether they like you or not within the first 4 seconds of seeing your photo. Studies have shown that potential clients spend nearly half of their portfolio viewing time looking at your photo. LinkedIn profiles are 11 times more likely to be viewed if you have a professional photo (vs. iphone shot or cropped party photo). Business cards are 24 times more likely to be kept if it has a photo! Put all of this together and it becomes clear that your image counts.
I have spent the past 7 years studying how to compose an image that is just right for every professional, and have photographed hundreds of professionals from actors, artists, and models, to CEOs, authors, entrepreneurs, real estate agents, and sales representatives. Lighting, backdrop choice, outfit choice, hair and make-up, posing, colors – every element of composing your portrait says something about you. With all of the pictures flooding social media, print marketing, and advertising, it’s more important than ever to create an image that stands out in a captivating way and represents you perfectly.
The start of the new year is the most popular time to update headshots. Could your headshot use an update? Whether it’s old, boring, unflattering, the lighting is poor, your expression isn’t’ captivating, or it simply doesn’t represent who you are, now is the time to book a session and start making a lasting first impression.
