Whether you work for yourself or represent a larger company a headshot is an important element of business branding. In the technology age imagery is more abundant that ever and people want to know who they are working with.
Having a professional headshot or buisness portrait shows your new or existing clients that YOU are commited to being personally responsible to their project or job. Taking the time and effort to make sure your portrait is the best it can be conveys a sense of pride and understanding how important quality is to you. If you are confident in yourself, your clients will trust you even more.
With so much business being conducted online, having a face to associate with you product or service helps build trust among consumers.
In a Forbes article from 2016, Kate Harrison said:
"Whether for a social profile or your company’s website, the quality and style of your headshot conveys a lot about you as a person and signals how you conduct business."
Don't let a poor quality photo make a potential client look to another business.
