3 Reasons Everyone Should Get Professional Headshots

As a photographer who’s owned his own small business for 30 years, I know how important it is to pay attention to details. With each camera adjustment and Photoshop edit, I need to be sure that everything will turn out exactly as planned. Attention to detail is important not just in my career, but in everyone’s. No matter where you are in life, you should always make sure to check everything twice and present yourself in the best light possible, which is why everyone should get professional headshots. Here are three big reasons why:
First impressions are everything
You take hours to prepare your professional website, your LinkedIn page and your Facebook, but if the only image of you on the page is a selfie, you can’t be expected to be taken seriously. You would never show up unprepared to an interview wearing a casual outfit, so why should your personal pages be any different? Remember, the goal is to get your foot in the door, and you’re much more likely to get an offer if you made a great first impression.
Small investment = big results
A small investment into your professional life can have an immense turnout. Think about all the professional selfies you have seen on LinkedIn - if none come to mind, there’s your answer. With some good lighting, a great suit jacket and a clean haircut, your headshot will be noticed positively by anyone who checks you out online.
Get ahead and stay ahead
Maybe you’re not on the hunt for a new job so you don’t feel the need to impress anyone. Think again - you represent the company you work for, which means you should always put your best self forward. Whether you’re networking or meeting up with new business partners, your online presence should always show people who you truly are: a smart, professional individual who cares about how you present yourself.

If you or your office is looking to get some headshots, don’t wait any longer; you’ll be glad you didn’t.
