A few days ago, I was sitting in La Colombe, one of my favorite Philadelphia Cafes, when I noticed an old friend of mine just posted a link to his new website. So, of course, as I was sipping on my draft latte, I clicked on the link. Immediately, it was obvious that he was starting a boutique marketing company.
His style and brand were quick and easy to understand. His work looked great, truly beautiful. So I spent a few more seconds poking around when I ended up clicking on his About Me Page. There he was, one of my oldest friends, staring back at me, with a picture clearly taken at least five years ago. I’m not going to go into detail, but let’s just say, it looked like a photo he pulled off of Facebook and thought “Well, guess that’s good enough.”
Don’t get me wrong, it was a fine picture of him, but compared to his amazing talent, incredible work and outstanding website, his headshot did not measure up… So, for him, and all the other talented, incredible and amazing people out there, this is why I believe, full heartedly, that every career person, in every industry and in every position, needs a good and professional headshot.
Let me make one last thing clear, when I say professional headshot, I am not only referring to a photo of you in a suite in front of a plain background. If that is what you are looking for, great, let’s make it happen. But I am also referring to a photograph that portrays you, as a professional and as a person. I am referring to the type of photo where you showcase your clients who you are and what you are all about. Every profession is different. Every person brings a distinct perspective and every headshot should be as unique as the person in the photo. If you are a yoga instructor, we will go for bright, light and calming with a sprinkle of personality. If you are a lawyer, we will go for confident, intelligent, welcoming with a hint of humor. And if you are a entrepreneur, we will go for creative, innovative and motivated with a splash of warmth. The list can go on and on.
Having your professional headshot taken can be fun, easy and extremely rewarding. So go on, go book your headshot session. Go get your About Me Page looking just as impressive as you are. Go get a headshot that will make you feel good about your LinkedIn profile page. And go take a photo for the sole purpose that you deserve to feel confident, knowledgable and unique.
Since I believe that every one should have a good headshot that they can be proud of, Yael Pachino Photography is offering a headshot special. Sending you good vibes and a bunch of happiness.
