4 Reasons Why You Need An Awesome Headshot
We live in a world where everything is accessible at the touch of a button. If you’re meeting someone for the first time, chances are you’ve both stalked each other beforehand via the “about us” page on their website or through social media.
Hell, I know I’ve done it!
This is why it is crucial to make an awesome first impression with a great headshot photo of you! Those first impressions will have a huge impact.
Show who you are.
An awesome headshot gives people an idea of your personality before they meet you. So you need to make sure that your headshot matches your personality.
Such as if you’re a lawyer your headshot might be more corporate and reserved on a high key white background. But if you’re a creative crafts person your headshot might be more fun with colour and laughter in your place of work.
Stand out from the crowd.
Adding a great headshot on your “about us” page and social media accounts allows people to put a face to a name.
A memorable photo means you are going to stand out from the crowd. You want to be remembered for the right reasons so ditch the profile pictures from a night out with your friends and invest in a professional, high res headshot.
Keep it current.
It’s so not good to keep re-using old headshots, this isn’t the real you!
Hairstyles change quickly, fashion is forever evolving and so do you. Your headshot needs to be current so it gives people an idea of what you look like now.
Top tip: keep hairstyles simple and don’t dress in high fashion clothing. You want your headshot to last the test of time, longer than 6 months anyway.
