Why A Professional Headshot Is Important?

I had a recent client mention to me he tried several times to use his new iPhone and portrait mode to take his own headshot and it never looked just right. Frustrated, he finally decided to find a headshot photographer. I had another client tell me last year that he used a selfie for his LinkedIn profile and a headhunter told him to help him, he would need to change his headshot. So, these are just two of many reasons why a professional headshot is important.

Who Needs a Headshot?

So, you’re wondering if you need a headshot? It’s very likely that you do. It’s harder to make the case to not get one than it is to get a professional headshot. There are many scientific, traditional, and modern reasons why.

Let’s throw some scientific points at you. Content with visuals get 94 percent more views. And, 40 percent of people respond to visual information better than they do to plain text. And, LinkedIn profiles with photos get 21 times more views and 36 times more messages. And, I could do this all day, but you get the point. So, if it’s obvious that a headshot to accompany any text – your bio, resume, profile, etc. – is very important, then who are some of the people it’s important for?

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.

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 professional headshots in Los Angeles? 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.

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.
