Those in the entertainment industry are already well-aware that a headshot is critical. If you’re trying to get auditions for acting or modeling, the first item to be looked at is often the headshot. Headshots aren’t just for aspiring actors and actresses, however. Businesses can really benefit from professional headshots. You’ll often find professional business photos on Linkedin as well as the About Us section of a business’s website. Let’s check out some other instances of when you would need a headshot.
To Present a Professional Webpage
If you’re going to be positing photos of yourself and your employees, your audience will know when you are grabbing photos from their social media profiles. By hiring a Boston headshot photographer, you are keeping every photo consistent. This means if you have separate headshots for every employee on the website, they’ll all have the same background and the same style of photography which makes the website appear cohesive. Take a look at the Santa Fe Group site. I shot each of these headshots, but one. Can you tell the odd man out?
When You’re Creating Multiple Business Profiles
A headshot is ideal for Linkedin but you can also use it for your Facebook business page, on your blog, or if you are guest blogging for another website.
If You’re a Public Figure
If you’re constantly in the spotlight, it’s best to have a headshot rather than letting unflattering pictures come to the surface. Public figures are always in need of a decent headshot and they are still able to control what image they want to portray to the public.
If You’re an Entrepreneur
Being an entrepreneur is a complicated process that takes time and dedication. Entrepreneurs are faced with pressures to network and create a sustaining business as soon as they launch their venture. By getting a headshot, you’re showing everyone how you carry yourself which will make you look much more professional.
