What is a Corporate Headshot?
Why a corporate headshot? First: what is a professional headshot? A headshot is essentially a portrait that accentuates specific features of you — through posing, lighting, composition, and expression. The purpose of a corporate headshot is to communicate your brand in a way that projects openness, approachability, and competence — particularly important when making a first impression.
What a Corporate Headshot Means to You
Is your image on the web — on a personal or corporate web site? Is your image in print: advertising, annual reports, sales collateral? Is your image on social media: LinkedIn, Indeed, Facebook? Is your personal brand a priority?
If you answered “yes” to any of the above questions, it’s likely you would benefit from a professional headshot.
As you research locating a professional photographer near you, you’ll develop a skill for recognizing great headshots. What are the attributes that stand out? What do you like or dislike when you compare photographers? That’s a good place to start.
