Five Reasons to Get A Professional Headshot

You have your own brand, like Coca-Cola or The Ford Motor Company. When you are putting yourself out there, for a job interview, to gain new business, or to tout your skills, you need your brand to look its best. A car or bathroom selfie won’t do that and more than a scuffed-up and faded Coca-Cola sign or a rusty old Mustang up on blocks. Like the corporate examples, you’ll be recognizable, but will you be presenting your best image? You may be a master at taking photos of yourself, or your friend may be a wiz with the latest iPhone, but you’re still not producing the best look possible.1 Here are five reasons why a professional headshot is important:

  • You are your brand. A professional headshot helps you put your best foot forward.
  • A professional headshot helps to define your brand. Do you want to be known as the lady with the ‘car selfie cleavage and sunglasses’ or the consummate professional your clients want?
  • A professional headshot establishes trust and communicates personality. The right photo creates a connection between the viewer and the subject. It can also trigger a disconnect. Like it or not, most folks base decisions on first impressions. On a site like LinkedIn, that first impression is your photo.2
  • A professional headshot establishes credibility. Professional headshots tell your potential clients or potential employers that you take your business seriously and are concerned with creating a solid presentation.
  • A professional headshot is an investment in you, your personal and professional brand, and your company. Headshots and corporate portraits can be used online and in printed marketing materials, biographies, and company literature.
