Whether you are seeking employment, a new life partner, starting a business, or have an online presence, a professional headshot is essential.
Reasons Why You Need a Professional Headshot:
1) First impressions count
It just takes a glance! We quickly assess a person’s character by looking at their face. So quick, it just takes a fraction of a second.
A new study from researchers at the University of York reveals just how quickly we form these first impressions.
“Facial impressions are relevant given that these occur very briefly (in as little as 33 ms) and they are consequential, for instance, predicting government election results and influencing romantic preferences,” explained study author Jennifer K. South Palomares, University of York
We need to take charge of how we are perceived, and we can accomplish that with a professional headshot.
2) Your photo is your ‘personal’ brand: it may be used on multiple platforms: LinkedIn, website, blog, social media, and online dating.
3) Your photo should represent you as you are today and not as you were 15 years ago.
People may judge you negatively if you show up to a meeting and your photo does not accurately represent your appearance. Get a new headshot to express who you are today!
4) Feel good about yourself. An excellent professional headshot will boost your self-confidence
