Having a professional headshot is important to your business and personal brand. Don’t shortchange yourself with bad selfie. Follow these tips, instead:
• Rather than cropping yourself out of a group photograph, make an effort to have a specific image for business use.
• Don’t use an old photo of yourself from when you were younger. Use a headshot depicting what you look like now. Average shelf life of a headshot: 2 years.
• Keep the photo timeless. Stay away from clothing trends. Stick with neutrals and a small pop of color.
• High-resolution photos are needed for both print and online uses.
