Is It time for New Business Headshots?

If you work for a company that has a website featuring a “Meet Our Team” or ‘About Us’ tab, you may be profiled with a photograph of yourself. If your company has a site but doesn’t have a “meet us” type of section, it may be a good idea to invest in one as well as new business headshots that go with it. If you have company photos there are certain questions you want to ask yourself to determine if it’s time to get new ones.

Take a Headcount

One of the first things to address is whether your company group photos involve members that are no longer a part of your team. If you have recently hired a new head of IT or have seen a few employees move on to new employment opportunities, then it may be time for new photos. This can help to ensure that anyone who visits your website isn’t confused about your team or calling to speak with someone who no longer works with you. Continue reading

Can Headshots Be Selfies

Okay, right to the point… Never ever, if you’re serious about your career. There is no such thing as a professional selfie, but there is such thing as a professional headshot. There are many reasons to steer clear of the tempting ease of just using your smartphone.

It’s Not Even a Fair Fight

One might argue that there is no benchmark for what a professional headshot should look like, in terms of quality. But, you can look at a headshot from a professional photographer that used one of the best DSLRs available and compare it to a selfie and easily tell the difference. So, when you put your selfie out there to be compared with truly professional headshots, you’ve failed to meet that benchmark and to be judged by it.

A smartphone camera is simply not up to the task of producing professional-quality photos or video. This is because, for professional careers, full frame DSLRs (and full frame mirrorless cameras nowadays) have been defined as the benchmark of quality for headshots. No smartphone camera comes close to meeting that benchmark. Don’t let the fancy advertisements fool you.

Let’s imagine the below image represents an overlay of two rooms. The black room is clearly much larger than the white room. This is the approximate size of a full frame image sensor of a professional-grade DSLR camera – the black one – compared with the size of the image sensor on the latest iPhone XR – the white one.
