Portraits for business or personal branding

January 2018

Never before has your image/profile been more visible. Clients and even friends want to see your profile. it just says so much about who you are, whether it's your business, social media or personal branding you should have somewhere on your website or social media have an image of your face clearly shown. In fact research now suggests, if you dont have a visable profile then that alone can arouse suspicion, and we all want/need in this age to project our profile in one way or another.

Creating your image, could be argued has never been easier. Everyone has a phone (well almost) with a camera on it. The selfie is here to stay and it has a place. That's not to say we all can take a good picture. Just because you have a pen, it doesn't make you an author.

When you're trying to project an image of yourself, the last thing you need is to be getting it horribly wrong.  

You only have one chance to create a first impression and a bad image is just like saying actually I don't care. that's not the sort of thing you need to be doing if your trying to project yourself or your company. 

For a business, a bad image could be potentially damaging. Many companies are now realising the importance of high-quality portraits & headshots, for company profiles. They go into reports, on websites and company social media pages, even in brochures and printed marketing. 

A good profile has alway's been important, but the way in which others now reach us has changed dramatically. One should never judge a book by its cover, but the fact remains, it has a large bearing on the choices people make. If you don't project that professional image, and those around you do, then you're already at a disadvantage, and in this competitive world,  great photography plays a massive role in helping you promote youself, your business and your brand, The cost of great photography far outweighs the cost of looking unprofessional  and whats more is supprinsingly cost effective.
