1. First Impressions Count
In today’s society online presence plays such key role in the success of businesses. First impressions count and often your first introduction to prospective clients, customers and business associates is through the photo on your website or social media pages. Which is why you need to make this photo count!2. Look Professional
What does a poor quality snap as your profile photo say about you and your business? If you want to be perceived professional, you should look polished and professional. Your online image is a powerful part of your personal brand.
3. A bad headshot photo can damage credibility
Or even worse, no headshot photo!
Details matter. What does your amateurish profile photo say to clients? If you don’t appear to care about the details of your own business image and personal brand, why should a potential client trust you to install higher standards when dealing with their business? Consider how this lack of confidence could cost your business financially.
4. Stay Current
Old headshot photos make you look dated. Hair and clothing styles change, what looked good at the start of your career in 1998 doesn’t in 2016. If your profile photo online is considered a first introduction, it’s important that it looks like you. New professional photos every few years can also be an invaluable way to document your success.
5. Skills and Expertise
A professional photographer has the skills and expertise in working with light – whether it be natural light or studio light – to always get a perfectly exposed photograph. Their artistic eye and knowledge on posing captures your best angle and their skill in putting you at ease so that you are relaxed in front of their camera enables them to catch the natural and spontaneous expressions that make you look confident, friendly and professional. Resulting in a great image!
If you only get one chance to make a lasting impression, with a professional headshot, make it count. At Stonelock Photography we are experts in creating the right professional headshot photo for you and your business.
