As a Metro Detroit headshot photographer, I work with professionals and executives throughout Metro Detroit and southeast Michigan to help them build their personal brand. With the recent popularity of LinkedIn and other professional networking websites, many people are truly starting to understand the importance of having a professional headshot. While any career benefits from having a headshot, it is a must for any professional or executive level position. So many clients have called me for LinkedIn headshots over the past year that I created an online FAQ that provides my Top 10 Tips for professional head shots.
The Top 10 Tips list includes these Top 5 Do’s and Top 5 Don’ts:
- Do be styled
- Do arrive clean and fresh
- Do have fun
- Do determine how your head shot will be used
- Do get enough rest
- Don’t go cheap
- Don’t settle on a photographer
- Don’t be obsolete
- Don’t go glam
- Don’t be afraid
Given there are so many options available, using an image from a point-and-shoot or smart phone camera is not acceptable in today’s standards. Having a quality head shot that is on par with your personal brand is essential since it is what people will see first when they find you online. Would you stake your brand on a poor quality or “cheap” image?
If you are in Metro Detroit and need professional headshots for LinkedIn or another social media website, please feel free to contact me online or call 313-883-9500. I would love to discuss your personal brand and how professional headshots can help build your online image!
