It really is true that first impressions count. How many times have you taken a glance at someone in person or checked out their online profile and made a judgement on them, good or bad?
That’s why it’s so important to portray who you are and what you do in a professional way. To keep your photo up to date and current is also important as you don’t want to portray an image that was taken 5 years ago!
But as with many things in business, you need it done “now” and you don’t have time to organise a photographer. So you put on some make-up or have a quick shave and you’re about to get your partner to take a quick snap of you for your Linkedin profile. How hard can it be????
Well that’s just it – anyone can take a photo with an iPhone or even a professional camera, but does it really reflect the person you are? Does it capture you in your best light? Let’s be honest, is it really good enough??
