Headshots. It's how everyone sees us online. Make them great!
Headshots are what someone sees when they are about to click on your profile, whether it be on your business page, your LinkedIn profile, a web promotion or your Facebook page. That being said, what would you like them to see?
An absolutely solid headshot photo is hopefully the answer. Your profile picture is your presentation to the world. It shouldn't be blurry - it should be absolutely sharp. It shouldn't show deep shadows under your eyes - it should be well lit. It shouldn't feature that facial blemish that appeared that one day - it should be expertly retouched.
Headshots For Business & Acting
Headshots really are the first thing that we look at when we view a business profile. We want to assess who we think the person is, what they are like. If it's headshots for a LinkedIn profile, or a FaceBook profile, it's all the same. It's a first impression. It tells us gender, age, ethnicity, and much more. And when there isn't a profile picture at all, we see that grey outline of a generic head and it doesn't impress.
Business headshots, acting headshots, or social profile image projects who we are to the world. A viewer of course shouldn't judge the book by it's cover, but of course that's exactly what happens almost all of the time. Those "selfies" that always seem to be taken in the car don't present us in a very good light.
At Hugh Anderson Photography every headshot is taken with professional grade cameras and lenses, as well as professional studio lighting setups and background. Then your image is polished to a high standard in Photoshop, giving you a clear, sharp image that can be used across all platforms.
