Reasons for a Professional Business Headshot

A professional business headshot (aka executive portrait) is your first opportunity to impress your prospective clients.  These potential customers in Greenville, SC want to do business with someone who looks trustworthy, competent and easy to approach.  Think of it this way:  are you more apt to work with a realtor who cruises around in a rusted Ford Pinto with a cracked windshield or with one who drives a well maintained import?  Exactly!

Post the Correct Image

The first opportunity you have to communicate these qualities to your customers is online via your business headshot.  These are also called business portraits, corporate headshots, executive portraits, professional headshots, executive photos, and commercial headshot.  What type of feeling do you leave in the mind of your audience, now that everybody’s profile and webpage is in the limelight?  Posting a snapshot from a fun night out on the town may be well intended. Sometimes however it doesn’t convey the degree of professionalism required to attract customers.

Why should I get a professional headshot?

Consciously or subconsciously your prospects will look at every element of your executive headshot – your clothes, the lighting, your expression, your pose, the background, the camera angle, etc.  In fact, according to researchers at the California Institute of Technology (CalTech), even the distance between you and the camera affect your trustworthiness and attractiveness. Is your photo merely average or does it also eclipse that of your competitors?  If you are serious about the direction you want your business to grow, therefore invest in a quality executive headshot that exudes your personality and helps create trust with your potential clients!
