You have one chance to make a first impression.
Headshots are no longer for top level executives.
Everyone needs a headshot in the age of social media
More and more we rely on social media to promote ourselves professionally. It is has become our first impression in many cases. You would never show up to a job interview dressed for anything less than success. Why would you treat your online presences any differently? As New Hampshire Headshot and Personal Brand Photographer, I wanted to share some reasons why a PROFESSIONAL HEADSHOT is a necessity today.
FIVE REASONS WHY YOU NEED A PROFESSIONAL HEADSHOT
WALK THE WALK - IF YOU WANT PEOPLE TO TREAT YOU AS A PROFESSIONAL YOU NEED TO LOOK PROFESSIONAL. YOU NEED TO PUT THE TIME AND EFFORT IN TO CREATING A PRESENCE ONLINE THAT IS JUST AS PROFESSIONAL AS THE ONE YOU WOULD PRESENT DURING AN INTERVIEW.
CONFIDENCE - YOU WILL FEEL GOOD ABOUT YOURSELF WHEN YOU LOOK YOUR BEST. THIS WILL INSPIRE YOU TO SHARE YOURSELF MORE OFTEN.
STAND OUT - POTENTIAL EMPLOYERS WILL TAKE NOTICE OF OF THOSE INDIVIDUALS WHO HAVE TAKEN THE TIME TO INVEST IN THEMSELVES AND THEIR CAREER. IT SHOWS THEM YOU ARE SERIOUS ABOUT YOUR FUTURE AND ARE COMMITTED TO GOING THE EXTRA STEP VERSUS SETTLING FOR A SUBPAR SELFIE.
COMPETENCE - A PROFESSIONAL PHOTOGRAPHER UNDERSTANDS THE NATURE OF A PROFESSIONAL HEADSHOT. THEY WILL HIGHLIGHT YOUR BEST FEATURES AND HELP YOU TO CONVEY THE IMAGE YOU ARE TRYING TO SHOW THE WORLD, WHETHER IT BE A FRIENDLY SMILE OR A FIERCE POWER POSE.
BE PREPARED - DON’T GET CAUGHT IN A SITUATION WHERE YOU NEED A HEADSHOT TOMORROW! TAKING THE TIME NOW WILL ENSURE THAT YOU ARE PREPARED FOR THAT NEWS RELEASE, MAGAZINE ARTICLE, OR WEBSITE LAUNCH.
THIS LIST ACTUALLY GOES ON AND ON, BUT I THOUGHT I WOULD START HERE!
