Having a professional Linkedin headshot photo is one of the most beneficial things you can do to improve your LinkedIn profile, or any social media profile. Past studies have shown that having a professional headshot portrait is the best way to attract prospective employers and clients.
While it is important to complete your LinkedIn profile with your career accomplishments and education, many Linked profiles that don’t have a photo are not followed up on, or may be ranked lower. A good LinkedIn headshot helps to bring credibility to your employment profile.
Posting a photo on your LinkedIn profile makes you 36 times more likely to receive a message. And a professionally photographed LinkedIn headshot will make it 14 times more likely someone will view your career profile.
Types of LinkedIn Headshot Photos
There are many types of LinkedIn headshots. One style of headshot is the Studio LinkedIn Portrait. This type of business headshot is taken indoors at our Vancouver photo studio and is typically photographed using a plain seamless backdrop. Another option is to produce your LinkedIn headshots using an out-of-focus background, or what some refer to as a “blurry background”
LinkedIn headshot portraits usually take just 30 minutes at our studio. Longer studio photo sessions are also available if you want to do multiple looks (styles). The photographer provides coaching to help you produce the best looking images possible, and you will get to see your photo proofs before you leave the studio.
If you are interested in producing headshots for your work profile, please contact us for rates and availability. Most sessions are just $109 CAD. After you’ve received your business headshot, be sure to upload it to PhotoFeeler to see what others think of your new professional headshot!
