Professionalism: Why it’s Best to Go to a Photographer
These days photos are everywhere. Layouts of websites, magazines, and newspapers all center around the photos more than anything else. Especially on social media, photos can give us a vivid idea of what a person or business is like in real life depending on what photos they post and what picture they use as a display photo or header. Whether it is you personally on a professional social networking site like LinkedIn, or just your photo on your email account, having a professional, well-lit photo as your display picture instead of a selfie can dramatically change what people think about you before they meet you in person.
Ditch the Selfie
Selfies taken with your phone are fine once in a while – to capture a quick moment – but they do not do you any favours when trying to appear professional. By investing in a professional photographer to take your display photo, you will ensure your profile gives off an air of reliability, competence, and expertise in whatever field you belong to. A selfie may be flattering, but only on a superficial level, since selfies are often taken at angles and in conditions other people would never normally see you in. A professional portrait captures the true essence of yourself and captures your beauty in a deeper way than a cellphone camera ever could.
By sporting a professional photo anywhere from your online biography to your online profile, to having hard copy photos you could hang on your wall, you mark yourself as different than the average selfie-poster. You exude a certain pride in how you present yourself, both online and in the real world.
Show your best face and your best self by going to a professional photographer for your photo needs – it will be a decision well worth it.
