Professional headshots are a must-have in today’s business world but just like in life, there’s so much more to a photoshoot than just business. We talk a lot about having a professional photo for LinkedIn or business but having your image stand out on any social media platform is important.
Business professionals need headshots for their personal social media accounts as well as for professional purposes. You most likely do not dress the same or behave exactly the same at work as you do in your personal life. This needs to be reflected in your choice of social media profile pictures.
With more than 78 percent of the population now reporting as having at least one social media account, it’s very likely that the average professional needs more than one kind of headshot. In fact, one image may not work for every platform.
Take, for example, LinkedIn where a person still needs to look professional while presenting a slightly more casual image for a social media platform. Other social media platforms whether it is Facebook, Instagram, or a dating site you may want to play around with your personal branding image while continuing to have a tasteful, high-quality image.
The easiest way to accomplish this is to simply have several styles of pictures taken during your professional photoshoot. I frequently work with clients who need headshots for various aspects of their life with each picture needing a unique style. This is easily accomplished with a quick shirt change (even removing a suit jacket), different facial expressions, lighting, or background.
Why try scheduling two different photoshoots? It’s easy to work with your photographer to get all the professional headshots you might need in one session.
