Professional portrait photographs are so important for a whole host of reasons.
Anyone involved in business should have an up-to-date headshot. Not only can it be used on LinkedIn profiles, websites and printed materials, it helps to build trust and rapport with potential clients.
If you are an actor then it is vital that you have a high-quality headshot. It is your calling-card, the first thing that a casting director will view. It needs to be up-to-date and convey your age, ethnicity, personality and much, much more!
Yes, I said online dating! One of the biggest pitfalls people fall into when completing online dating profiles is not using good quality images. You only get one chance to leave a first impression and if your profile photo is poor then people are unlikely to read any further.
No matter the reason, research has proven time and time again that high-quality headshots are much better than selfies or candid photographs such as holiday snaps or photos of you and your dog! But why might that be?
If you feel like you need to update your profile photo then I run headshot days where you can book a session time to come along and have your photograph taken. My next headshot day is happening this week and there are still a few sessions available. Why not book yourself in - it's only £50.
