A Few Reasons Why You Need a Professional Head Shot.....

by: Kristina Rust Photography

I understand that the thought of getting in front of the camera all by yourself can make you cringe but having a professional photo is extremely important and here’s why:
1. A professional headshot conveys a look of professionalism and credibility for you and your company. Your image is your first impression, be sure to make it a strong one.
2. People like to do business with others they know. Having a headshot helps people feel like they already know you.
3. You’ll use it all over the Internet. A polished headshot is necessary for social media. A consistent professional headshot should be used on all your social media channels…LinkedIn, Twitter, Website, etc.
4. You might need a headshot for a speaking engagement, book jacket, or event and you’ll be ready.
5. A professional headshot will show you at your best. Rather than using that selfie or photo where you cropped out your friends, a professional headshot will demonstrate that you made an investment in yourself and that you take yourself seriously.
As you can see from the sample images above, a headshot does not have to be stuffy or in front of a blue backdrop.  Your headshot can reflect your style and personality and still look professional.  If you’d like to learn more about my headshot services, please contact me at or call 408.207.5010.
