Why You Need a Good Headshot | Halifax NS Photographer

The old saying that a picture is worth a thousand words has never been more true than in today’s social media-driven digital age.  More often than not, people see your face online long before they meet you in person.  Whether a potential customer is checking out your profile on LinkedIn, or looking up your business on Facebook, Twitter or GooglePlus, a great picture of yourself is a must.  While it’s definitely quicker to simply upload the one Uncle Fred took of you at the park last summer or to grab your selfie stick and stand in front of a white wall, having your pictures done professionally can take your profile to the next level.

There are some important differences between the picture from Uncle Fred and one taken by a professional.  A headshot photographer knows how to use lighting and posing to show you at your best.  They can help you figure out your personal branding by talking through wardrobes and backgrounds.  And, a great photographer will help you to feel at ease and get the shot that communicates your personality and the persona you want to present.

In short, a great professional headshot is an investment that will quickly prove its worth.  If you’re interested in scheduling a session to have yours done, I’d love to hear from you.
