Rob Wilson Photography is one of New Jersey’s more requested Headshot Photographers. Specializing in executive headshots and corporate events since 2006. Whether it’s a portrait with a studio background taken at your home or office, a professional portrait outside, together we will come up with a plan so your executive portrait enhances your personal brand. Many of my clients just need a simple portrait for their LinkedIn profile, others for their company website, some companies hire me to photograph anywhere from five to two hundred people in one day. No job is too big or too small. When browsing the web for headshot photographers make sure that they have a lot of examples. Also it’s important to make sure that they specialize in headshots. The last thing you want to do is to hire a baby photographer to photography your professional portrait. Who knows, they may want to put you in a basket with a knitted hat on.
I am also available for destination corporate photography services. Over the years I’ve been commissioned out of New Jersey to states like Arizona, Connecticut, Delaware, New York City, Pennsylvania, and other great states.
Three reasons why Companies Should have Executive Portraits taken of their Employees.
- Some people are better with faces than they are with names. Adding a executive business portrait increases the likelihood that people will reply to their connection requests and discussion threads. (This is especially if you got married and changed your last name, have switched professions or even moved to another city.) A former college classmate might think, “I don’t know anyone named Katie Smith from Texas, so I’m going to ignore that connection request.” Seeing a portrait attached to that LinkedIn Profile could change that knee jerk reaction.
- Show you’re social media savvy. By having your employee’s portrait on their LinkedIn Profile, they are also signaling that they understand how to use an integral business tool like LinkedIn. Professionals use LinkedIn to uncover new clients, to get new jobs, find important industry insights and to accomplish a number of other business related tasks. If potential partners or hiring managers look at their employees profile and see that it doesn’t have an executive portrait or that it is incomplete, they might assume that your social media skill set isn’t up to snuff. It’s a lot like when you’re selling a house. If there’s no photo, it might make people think, there must be something wrong with this property.
- First impressions are very important and people will judge them and the corporation within a few seconds when they view a profile. It’s like someone in a nice suit and their shoes aren’t polished. A LinkedIn profile is also unpolished without a professional portrait as a profile picture.
