I should take my own advice here. It's on my to do list. So, the question is.......What kind of picture is representing your business? If you own your own business you NEED a professional headshot to be the face of your advertising. Whether that advertising is Facebook, Instagram, LinkedIn, a website, your business cards or maybe you work for a company that uses your picture on their website like realtors, stylists in a salon, sales of any sort, we all need our best face forward. No more selfies with a horrid filter that adds flowers, sparkles or blown out skin that makes you unrecognizable.
Here's the deal. You want to look professional, friendly, approachable, and trustworthy. People will be summing you up just based on how you appear. Not fair? Nope, it's not but it is what it is. People do it every day even when they don't mean to. We are looking for people that look like we can relate with. So, while you may be amazingly fun to go out with on a Friday night, let's leave the bar selfies to your private pages. Invest the time and extra money into a great professional headshot that will represent you well. If it brings in one awesome client, then it has paid for itself. Right? Right!
Now since I said it, I need to go do it. Photographers are the worst subjects to get in front of a lens!
