First impressions matter. On average, it takes someone about seven seconds to completely judge you on your qualities. Today, more than ever, these encounters happen online with your social media profiles rather than in-person.
Professional headshots are important because they put a face to the name. When you don’t have the opportunity to meet someone in person, you’ll most likely look at his or her profile picture on their social media site (LinkedIn, Facebook, etc.). Without a professional headshot, people might not take you as seriously. For instance, Jim and Greg are identical twins competing for a corporate engineering position. They both have similar education backgrounds and engineering work experience; however, the only difference between them was that Jim had a professional headshot taken in a suit and tie from three months ago as his LinkedIn profile picture, and Greg had a cell phone picture of him from five years ago sleeping at the beach in a t-shirt and shorts. Most likely, the recruiter would choose Jim because his profile picture is professional and current.
The goal is to know your audience, keep it simple and classy, and prevent as many negative impressions as possible.
Below is what our clients are saying about their headshots and portraits!
“Jordan was the photographer for our organization’s yearly photoshoot, and we couldn’t have asked for better results. Throughout the entire process, Jordan communicated with us frequently and made sure that our needs were being met. From the initial consultation to the day of the shoot, Jordan was clear, concise, professional, and always available for questions if they arose. At the photoshoot, Jordan made us feel comfortable and excited for our pictures. He knew what would work best for our photos in terms of location, lighting, and pose configurations, but he also took our thoughts and ideas into consideration. The turnaround time for receiving the final pictures was very quick, and the results were stunning. Jordan Ferrer Photography is a must for anyone looking to take high-end photos for any occasion, and for anyone wanting to work with a truly amazing agency.”

There are many benefits of having professional headshots. Here are the top reasons you should take them:
You might be saying, “I’ve already taken headshots a year ago. Why would I need a new one?” People want to work with the you from today, not the you from a year ago. This is another way to build trust with your potential clients. I recommend my clients update their headshots every 6 to 12 months.
I provide personalized proposals catered to your needs and locations, but to give you a baseline:
