I create people’s personal profile images for social media and company websites. What does your profile image say about you? Is it good quality? Will it be a good representation of your business? Is it FLATTERING? Because if you are changing career, setting up in business, updating your CV, adding to LinkedIn or Facebook, you will need a decent professional profile image.
Do you think your image might be out of date? Perhaps it is no longer representative of your new or current role. Maybe is it bad quality and simply just not showing you off in the best light. People out there want to see who you are. It’s important to look friendly, open and honest. You have to put yourself out there visually.
Whether you like it or not and that means images of yourself. There is plenty of research that shows how vital that image can be in terms of making a good impact. It can make the different between getting a job and not ever being contacted.
What to Expect
The first step is booking a headshot session, on a date to suit you and your work. I’m happy to visit work places. But I also have a home studio in St Albans. Following this we will have a discussion beforehand about what you would like and how best to show your inner self in the best light! I have a plain background and studio lighting, or we can use natural/window lighting. I advise smart professional clothing, light makeup, to minimize patterns and loud colours, whilst not compromising demonstrating your shining personality!
These quotes come from two lovely experts who know what they are talking about! Rachel Park, Resourcing Manager, Alexander Mann Solutions, London: “As a Headhunter I often skim over profiles with no picture or a poor visual profile. Linked in is a very powerful tool for networking and raising your profile. The most critical element of this is the profile photo. We remember 10 percent of what we read but 30 percent of what we see. It is essential that this picture portrays what you want it to and that it is professional and appeals to the audience you want it to attract. “ Naomi Asher, Co-Founder & Managing Director of Ashley Kate HR, Derby: “Regardless of how you use Social Media/LinkedIn, ensuring you have a full profile is essential to maximise the benefit of the platform, and this includes your profile picture. It personalises and adds credibility to your profile, it helps your professional network, current and future, recognize you both on and offline, ensuring this picture is professional and portrays you in the best light is even more essential.”
