Our grandparents usually gave us the best advice, including “put your best foot forward”, “you only get a chance to make a good first impression once” and “you get more flies with honey”. And this age old wisdom continues to this day, especially in the age of social media. So when you are looking for a new job, perhaps its time to consider getting a new business portrait for your Linked-In profile!
Here are some tips I give my portrait clients: keep clothing simple, bring fresh ironed clothes to change into before the shoot, and professional hair and make-up is always a good thing for the ladies.
As a professional portrait photographer, I swear by my tried and true equipment: a ladder so I can be taller than my subject to slim down the face, a long lens to blur the background and my Adobe Lightroom software which allows me to make cosmetic adjustments before delivering the shoot to the client.
