And, as I read his biography, I thought, “Pretty impressive”. Then, his picture stopped me in my tracks. I know I’m a photographer, and tend to want things to be perfect visually, however, the image this company decided to use was a selfie he obviously took with his cell phone, and instead of “matching” his accomplishments, the image looked like his mugshot. A mugshot. Not a way to celebrate a new title. And, it hits me. Selfies are NOT the new headshots! What is the reason for a headshot? Why do you need one? Why hire a professional photographer? The answer is simple. Because your image depends on it. So, next time you whip out your iPhone and snap a pic, make sure not to replace your online image with your selfie.www.PSphotography.net | www.PSstudios.net | Corporate Photography | Professional Portraits | Executive Portraits | Branding Images | Headshots | Modern Headshots
