Why it’s important to have a professional head shot.
People are taking photographs more than ever these days. As the advancement of technology and social media collide, artistic boundaries will continue to be pushed.
Digitalism may be taking over, however it’ll still be a while before computers can compete with a photography brain, remarkable skill sets and the creative power of imagination.
But all selfies and filters aside, does a snap from a smart phone truly capture and promote your character the way a professional head shot can?
Let’s look at six reasons how a session with an expert makes a world of difference and why it’s totally worth the investment.
2. Helps express personalisation for your customers
Creating a confident connection between your image and potential customers is an absolute must.
A clear, vibrant shot of you from the waist up with an appropriate background representing you in your most positive light shows people you’re willing to interact with them on a more personal level.
Relationships are your business whether its with consumers, clients or business partners propping up your services. It also helps bestow your personality onto those that are yet to meet you, with a professional head shot being the next best thing.
Change things up by ceasing to make your brand the face of your business and allow others to see exactly who they’re dealing with.
3. Improves job hunt efforts
Gone are the days of emailing a stale, black and white-text resume to a few shortlisted positions with recruiters adding just another name to the pile.
Recognition sells in today’s market and what better way is there to build an effective reminder than being one of few to exhibit extra professionalism with a head shot.
This also works in a digital sense and is highly recommended if your name is extremely common. Photos of subpar quality and that are used or submitted out of context just won’t cut it if you want to come across as a serious job seeker.
6. Everyone loves matching a face with a name
It’s important to remember that expert photography teams along with their studio and touch-up capabilities will produce you a personality-orientated shot almost impossible to capture by yourself.
You’ll need style and lighting tips, as well as pose and expression recommendations that only experienced and knowledgeable photographers can combine.
The bottom line is that there are subtle but significant differences between simply pasting a photo on your website and shooting a purposeful, professionally focused session for a high quality print.
It’s also fairly easy for people to notice these differences when conducting comparisons, contemplating purchases and making final recruitment selections.
