You need a new headshot.
You might not think you need a headshot but you do. A lot of people don’t like to have their picture taken and I sympathize. I hate having my picture taken (which some people might find ironic considering the fact that I am a photographer) but I made this headshot of myself as part of my efforts to market my photographic business.
My father is another person who isn’t overly fond of having his picture taken but here is his current headshot.
So why do you need a headshot?
People want to know who they are working with whether they are looking to hire you to join their company, take a class from you, or connect with you in some other professional or personal way. Your headshot tells a story about you that your resume or LinkedIn profile can’t. The story it tells depends on the image of course but it can:
- Portray your professionalism (be well groomed and wearing a sharp suit) in a way that makes people want to hire or work with you;
- Give people a sense of your personality (are you friendly and approachable or serious and aloof?);
- Remind people what you look like now vs what you looked like ten years ago when you last got a headshot.
