First impressions go a long way, so having a flattering Linked-In headshot is critical. Its common for potential customers and employers to review your social media profiles, so having your executive portrait taken by a top rated NY City professional photographer is recommended.
Depending on your profession, your portrait can be either casual with a nice shot taken outdoors, or more conservative taken in a photo studio. Most legal and financial pros go with an indoor headshot taken against a backdrop with studio lighting, and others in creative fields will prefer an outdoor more editorial type of look.
Tips for successful headshot photography include keeping clothing simple, having hair and make-up done by a professional and working with a professional photographer who’s portfolio you like.
