A head shot is a first impression and if you’re using a selfie on somewhere liked LinkedIn then what kind of impression are you giving? Not a very professional one.
I may be a little biased, but I know without a doubt that a professional head shot will set you apart from the crowd. Take a look at your LinkedIn network and tell me who you would decide to hire. I bet it’s someone with a professional head shots and not just a selfie or a picture with their dog. LinkedIn and you’re website are not to be used in the same way as you’re Facebook or Instagram accounts, so make sure to keep the selfies to the social media sites that are meant for fun.
Don’t worry because not all head shots have to be formal. It all depends on your profession! Check out some of my other head shots here!
