Guest Blogger: Bob Briskey, Bob Briskey Photography
This may sound dramatic, but in today’s ultra-competitive business environment a professional business portrait or headshot is truly the most necessary and often underutilized marketing tool available for business owners and employees. When a prospective employer or client looks at your headshot are they being given a consistent message from what they have heard from you or what your brand story is promoting? The polished and perfected marketing message that you so eloquently deliver can be squashed and forgotten in an instant by an unprofessional visual signature.
You need to look like a pro! Face it (pun intended), you are attempting to have prospects sign a contract, hire you, or get a promotion by your current employer! The opportunity to be seen as an asset to others begins with your decision when hitting the enter button on the upload of your photo! Your visual leave behind needs to make you look approachable, trustworthy, enthusiastic, and credible! The opportunity to help shape the expectations of the audience you are trying to reach is crucial to your success. You can accomplish this by hiring qualified professional photographer to guide you properly through the process.
“Bob did such a great job helping me to put my professional face forward! The photo shoot was quick and fun and I ended up with a wonderful photo. Also, the electronic photo files were so very simple to upload to LinkedIn and other social media because of the behind the scenes work Bob does to make the photo files perfect; just the right size and shape. I strongly recommend Bob to anyone who wants to look fabulous in a frame or on a screen.” Kathy Doyle, Managing Director – Relief EHS, LLC
