Business Headshots Profile Photos
Business headshots for your business are one of your best selling tools. Likewise, people that view your business headshot images form their first impression of you on what they see. A business headshot that displays you clearly and shows you as approachable will give a good first impression.

In other words, a business headshot that confuses viewers will result in the viewer moving on quickly. That’s not just what they are viewing but also your website/social media. This will not be good for your business.

In the first place, your professional headshot image is your ambassador. As a result, when someone meets you in person they will expect to see the person they viewed. The impression that they then form of you may not be a good one. For one thing, the lifespan of a headshot is 2-3 yrs.

It’s not as simple as standing in front of a camera and taking a picture. Consequently, you have to consider the background, lighting, wardrobe, hairstyle, smile and look. Specifically, the wardrobe and styling are to complement the subject not overwhelm them.

Equally important is the framing of the subject with a background that is either plain or out of focus. Accordingly, the background should not stand out, the viewer’s eyes should concentrate on the subject.

Most templates for websites etc are white or off-white for profile images. For this reason, a professional headshot can integrate fairly seamlessly directly onto most websites and social media platforms.
