It’s always important to have images that look clean, well lit and professional rather than home shot images or ‘selfies’. People often view profile pictures to learn about someone they haven’t yet met and when doing this they will make instinctive judgements about that person.
So in the business arena it’s always important to have a well executed, friendly and approachable photo that shows a little about that person’s character or career. If a networking profile image looks like they have taken care with their photograph, then the assumption is they will take care in business too.
Professional headshot photography is my specialty. I offer professional, relaxed and smart studio photos on my white infinity backdrop, plain black and grey Coloramas here in Newcastle city centre. Also a location option (office or outdoor) for relaxed sessions to get flattering shots of you looking friendly and approachable. Either choice is geared towards updating your photo for your LinkedIn, Twitter and Facebook Online Profiles.
