The Importance Of A Professional Headshot
We live in a visual world with a strong social media presence so we are often judged by our online headshot before we meet people face to face. It is therefore vitally important for us all to make the most of this first impression where an instant perception is formed in seconds. The social media headshot has become the first impression of the 21st century. Whether you are a corporate executive, a real estate professional, in the medical field or simply want to stand out on a dating site, you should have a professional headshot to represent you.
Our personal image is our advertisement to the world. Our professional headshot is a promise of who we are, our credibility and what we will deliver. Most recruiters nowadays when considering candidates will look them up on social media networks like LinkedIn or Facebook. A generic avatar or an unprofessional photo is not the impression you want to give to a future employer. An online photo is also very useful for social networking and events – it creates a personable air of familiarity and people generally feel at ease with people they have already had access to.
It is essential that you look like the picture too – you need to present an authentic, credible and consistent brand. Social Media experts will advise that the same headshot photo should ideally be distributed across all the social media platforms. The fastest growing social networks are those which are focused on images such as Pinterest, Instagram, Tumblr and Facebook. There is no escaping this emphasis on visual perception.
A professional headshot should be viewed as an investment in yourself. A solid profile implies that the person is an expert in their chosen field and confident in their chosen personal brand and values. Your personal brand is made up of what people see, say, hear and read. What is your headshot saying about you?
