A lot of college students have the option their senior year to get a “professional” headshot to help them land that job upon graduation. I suppose new hires, or those looking to get hired, have limited expectations as to what makes a great headshot, but there really ARE limits to what is good.
Scanned images, or small images shown to big for their pixels are just one “FAIL” when showing a headshot.
Expression, body language, quality of light and background are all factors that make a headshot work … or NOT. I see crappy headshots of people on LinkedIn all the time, and not just the recent grads.
Are you a couple of years out of college and have a horrible headshot you’re using? Call me to schedule your new one!
