In today’s crazy digital world, head shots have become almost a necessity for everyone. They have been used for models and actors in the past, but modern businesses often use them to represent leaders in their company. With the rise of online presence, anyone who wants to make a great impression and need personal branding should consider one. It lets others in your field or looking to hire you, that you take your job seriously and instantly creates trust. (I’ve learned with tons of blogging and posts that my most interactive posts are when they’re personal. Creating that trust and showing a bit of my life has been the most important for gaining new clients and attracting the right people, and getting people to feel connected.)
Usually people think of stuffy boring portraits, but the right photographer and communication can show off your personality! So talk with your photographer about what you want to convey both for your company and clients, and your personality. Home businesses are a great reason for a professional portrait too. Mary-Kay, Stella & Dot for example can not only create trust with customers, but show off your products!
Below are some examples of people in different fields using professional head shots. Some are more relaxed and some a bit more traditional. don’t forget, you can mix it up and have a few portraits and use one for social media and another for business cards!
