October 14, 2015  •  Leave a Comment

Head shots, head shots everyone is talking about them - the world has embraced not only the internet but also social media in all its forms, whether its Facebook, Twitter or LinkedIn.

Initially many people just used an image they had, some were even taken from holiday snaps or weddings with other people cut off!

However in the connected business world, first impressions are very important and a good, high quality, clean head shot or business portrait makes a massive difference to your profile or website.

More important is the impression it makes on your friends, customers and prospects.

There is a static somewhere that shows that people get more views of their profile if they have a good image.

Make sure you give your company, your business or yourself the best prospects by having a professional high quality headshot for your profile

A few basics:

  • Business head shots for company websites all need to look the same or as if they were taken at the same time, despite new employees arriving - the high key white back ground is very popular and effective across all platforms - desktop, mobile or tablet.
  • High key (white background) work very well on presentations and CVs
  • Colour or black and white is a personal choice
  • PR shots tend to be more dramatic, often on location
  • Make sure you and your team ready for the shots.
  • Monday mornings are probably not ideal!
