Professional Headshots for LinkedIn
David Shopper specializes in creating natural light LinkedIn professional headshots in Boston, MA.
Who needs professional headshots for LinkedIn and other social media? Any businessman or businesswoman who expects to be taken seriously in the corporate world. A professional headshot has high production value, which shows your expertise and attention to detail.
Natural light has many advantages for professional headshots. If you find the right photographers, natural light is very flattering. It also looks natural and fresh. Strobe light can look manufactured and unauthentic.
Most executives feel more comfortable in natural light when taking their LinkedIn portraits. More comfort means they look more approachable and engaged.
Why else should you hire a professional photographer for your linkedin profile photograph? A professional photographer will make sure your portrait is branded – in other words, shot in the same way as other members of your team. This way, your company has a cohesive look. Every company values a distinctive look.
How does a corporate LinkedIn professional photo shoot work?
First, David will scout your offices, looking for the good natural light and a background that has brightness and some structural details.
Next, if we are using a groomer or makeup artist (which I recommend so everyone looks healthy and squared-away), you’ll spend 5 minutes being groomed.
Next, we’ll ask you to just be yourself. We’ll help you feel comfortable and engaged. This is usually a fun, casual process. It usually takes 5-10 minutes.
After the shoot, we edit the images and create a preview web gallery where you can choose your favorites.
Once we get your selections, we process, prep, and retouch the final images and upload them to our ftp.
There’s no reason your social media professional headshots should look amateurish or overproduced. The “sweet spot” for linked in profile photos (in Boston at least) is to project competence, professionalism, and approachability. Basically: a high-quality photograph of a casual moment.
A casual moment in professional head shots is hard to get. David Shopper and his team create a light atmosphere for their corporate portrait shoots. Their shoots are fun, yet there’s a strong attention to detail. David makes sure everyone looks their best and feels comfortable. He takes his time. He understands that some people are nervous having their portrait taken. That’s okay.
The professional headshots shown above were taken for T3 Advisors (https://www.t3advisors.com/) . T3 is a Boston-based real estate consulting company. What it offers clients, in a nutshell, is its expertise. So, you can see how important it is for a company like this to portray themselves as smart and engaged. Besides a portfolio of their real estate projects, the team headshots have to be their most important asset.
The headshots we created have a distinctive, casual feel that is recognizable as being from T3.
