It used to be that the only people who really needed a head shot were actors, models, and professionals in other industries in which appearance plays a significant factor. However, with the rise in both personal and professional social media platforms (Facebook, LinkedIn, etc.) that’s no longer the case!
The images you use to portray yourself online or at networking events play a large role in how you’re seen by potential employers, clients, and customers before they even contact you. So, how can a professional head shot enhance your reputation in your industry?
Make a memorable impression.
People are more likely to remember you if they can put a face to the name. A head shot will help keep you at the forefront of the minds of the people who matter! Long-term recognition is especially crucial to job and business success when people have access to an endless sea of other options at their fingertips.
Showcase your personal brand.
A head shot is a great way to represent who you are, both personally and professionally. Use your photo to tell a story the people in your industry will want to read more of. Everything from the outfit you choose, to your facial expression, and even your backdrop can say a lot about what people can expect from you!
Establish yourself as a professional.
If you want to become a respected, reputable individual in your field, you’ll need to look the part. A professional head shot will communicate to potential employers, employees, and clients that you take your career seriously.
Invest in yourself.
A head shot helps you see yourself how you want others to see you—as a skilled, experienced, and worthwhile investment. Boost your confidence as you market your skills and abilities and feel motivated to take yourself as seriously as you want others to take you!
In order to get the perfect picture to convey everything you have to offer in your field, you need a photographer who takes their work just as seriously. At Stephoto LLC, our priority is to create a head shot that represents you as professionally and authentically as possible.
