THE ART OF THE HEADSHOT
For the actor or performer, a headshot is a marketing tool designed to get you noticed and get you work. For executives, speakers and small business people a great headshot is all about "branding". Don't you want the most effective headshot you can get?
A successful company may be the sum of its employees, their work and its products, but the human face of a company will often be represented by a small number of people: the CEO, the members of the board, and the officers who make the key decisions. Shareholders, clients and partners may love a company’s brand — but they still want to know who lies behind the strategy and who is setting the direction. They want to know whom they’re doing business with.
Executive portraiture turns a corporation into an individual, and it makes a personal relationship built primarily on the exchange of products and services. This is not something that can be obtained through a stock library or through any method other than the hiring of a professional photographer.
“The most important part of your LinkedIn profile is your picture.” A client pointed me at a great web video today called “The Do’s and Dont’s of LinkedIn Branding” by Kevin Nichols. About 7 minutes into the talk, the Mr. Nichols states something I’ve been telling business clients for years: “The most important part of your LinkedIn profile is your picture. It’s your first impression” “…it’s worth hiring a professional.”
This is solid gold advice for personal branding. Check out the full video here: The Most Important Part Of Your Linkedin Profile
