What is a professional headshot?
A professional headshot is a window into your personal brand. It is often your first impression when featured on your social media profile or your resume. A professional headshot allows you to portray the professional version of yourself to prospective employers and can help you to stand out from other job seekers.
How to dress for your professional headshot?
The most important part of a professional headshot is to be yourself! Consider your career goals when deciding how you want to dress for your professional headshot appointment. Think about what you might wear to a job interview or presentation. Keep it simple with solid colors. A suit or a blazer is often a good choice.
Remember to be yourself and be considerate of the jobs you are trying to attract!
