The theory of Snap Judgement theorizes that people make a judgement in less than 1 second of meeting you. The same theory applies to your head shot. Whether you are posting a photo of yourself on LinkedIn, social media, a resume or a dating site, your picture is the first impression you can make. So put your best foot forward and make sure your head shot represents you well.
Though selfies are easy and convenient, they aren’t the best quality image. A great headshot isn’t just about great outfit and good hair day. A great head shot captures the best of you, your natural smile, your personality and the way you see yourself (lets face it, sometimes that doesn’t quite match up to what we see after a restless night). With the help of professional lighting and editing, your head shot will show you at your best, even if you haven’t had your morning coffee yet.
