Making a strong first impression is key to success. According to recent research, that first impression can take as little as 1/10 of a second. We’ve been told when we’re young, “Don’t judge a book by its cover,” but unfortunately that goes out the window with your headshot in today’s online world. First impressions really, really DO count.
You are your brand. Upon meeting you or viewing your headshot, potential clients very quickly decide if they feel a connection to you and your company. Do you look approachable, professional and trustworthy? All of these are important characteristics of your company’s brand. It’s imperative that the headshot you share with your potential customer is a professional one.
When I click on a website or LinkedIn, I want to see the person I am dealing with. If I see a fuzzy snapshot of a person, or if the lighting is too dark or too bright, maybe the person is squinting or standing at a strange angle, it is hard to take that person seriously. Image matters more than you may think and can cost you that next job, account or sale. It is worth the investment and time to go to a professional photographer.
A great headshot shows your confidence with approachability and a dash of curiosity. People should be drawn in when they see you, wanting to know more about you and your work. To get that expression takes a little work and direction. This is where I come in to guide and direct you. My goal is to capture your style, personality, and the brand you want to project in a powerful headshot.
