Beyond the Thumbnail: Personal Branding and Headshot

Back by Popular Demand

Why should you get a professional headshot and how to prepare for it? You can read about it here.

The second question after why do I need a headshot is, why do I need more than one headshot, also referred to as personal branding shot?

Imagine this. You front door bell rings. What do you do?
You peek through the peephole to see who it is. Hmm, this person kind of looks legit, let me open the door. This is your round cropped Linked in/Profile thumbnail headshot.
Now that you have opened the door you get to meet the individual, get to know and trust them. This is where your second, third, fourth headshot or branding image comes into play.

As professional headshot and branding photographers, we give you a range of images to select from. The traditional old-fashioned headshot is all about the first impression. It focuses mostly on your eyes, your smile and your connection with the audience. Beyond that, the rest of your branding images are about raising the interest level. They capture your personality, project your confidence, communicate your expertise and authority in your field and engage your client so that you can ultimately build trust with them.

Where all can you use these images?

Traditional face focused headshot can be used for:

  • Business cards with a photo help people remember you from networking events
  • Your professional networking profile image (LinkedIn etc)
  • Social media profiles
  • Website
  • Email signature
  • Resume
  • Company reports
  • Company directory
  • Employee of the month
  • Corporate brochure
  • For your campaign when you have political aspirations?
  • Job applications sites
  • Basically, any place to represent you when you can’t be there in person

  • Displays in reception or waiting room

  • Building your personal brand as a consultant or starting a business

The above list can have interchangeable applications and can be expanded with your imagination
