Getting Ahead in Your Industry Using Good Business Headshots

When prospective clients or headhunters are looking you up online they aren’t just looking at what you do, they are also taking a look at who you are. The way that you show yourself to other people online is proven by research to be a big factor in whether they contact you, buy from you, or offer you something. If you own your own business it can be especially competitive and getting ahead in your industry with something that seems subtle, like a good business headshot, can be the difference.

Your headshot can say a lot about you as a person and as a professional. Someone who took a quick selfie will not look nearly as good as a person who hired a professional photographer. Someone who cropped or photoshopped other people out of the frame or has a grainy or pixelated headshot isn’t going to look as good as a person who uses a high resolution shot that’s well lit. Getting ahead in your industry can mean knowing the best ways of getting a professional headshot done. Here are some tips on how: Continue reading

What Your Headshot Says About You

Are you on the fence as to whether you should get a professional headshot? Maybe you don’t like having your picture taken. Or, maybe you think they are too expensive. Maybe you think a smartphone selfie is good enough. Well, before deciding against one, you might be surprised to learn what your headshot says about you.

First, it’s important to take into consideration that a professional headshot involves using professional-grade equipment to accomplish it. Thus, a professionally done portrait will easily standout compared to anything a smartphone can do. And this is the obvious difference between a professional shot versus an amateur one.

Can Headshots Be Black and White?

This is a question that comes up on some occasions – can headshots be black and white? Some might argue it depends on what it’s for. For example, some might say actor headshots can be black and white but corporate headshots should not be. Some might also argue that model headshots can be black and white. The quick answer is, of course headshots can be black and white but, not as the primary ones you use – and that’s regardless of what they are for.

Your main headshots should be in color. This is for many obvious reasons I’ll go ahead and state anyway. Whether you’re an actor, business executive, model, etc., the purpose of a headshot is to show an accurate representation of you. The last time I checked, the world operates in full color. So, a black and white headshot is not an accurate representation of you.

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
