Why Having Updated Corporate Headshots Is Essential For Portraying A Professional Business Image

When you need to attach a photo to your CV or your LinkedIn profile, do you find yourself scrolling aimlessly through awkward selfies or trying to crop out a picture of yourself in a group photo! If so, then you definitely need to invest in some new corporate headshots so that you make a great first impression.

As experts in corporate headshot photography in Brisbane here are some of the reasons we feel professional headshots are so essential!


No matter whether you are a doctor, writer, actress or accountant, your headshot may be the first impression an employer or client gets of you, so it is important to make it a good one! A professional, high quality headshot, with a plain or industry-relevant background, portrays you as someone serious about your work.


When you get headshots done, you may find that you had a particular use in mind for them, but you may soon find that professional headshots have many uses – attached to CVs, used on your company website’s ‘team page’, or on your LinkedIn profile to name but a few. 


Your headshot allows you to tell a story about yourself in just a single snap. You can tell this story by using facial expressions, background, outfit/uniform and props. Think about if you want to come across as caring, professional, confident or fun? It will all depend on your profession and the type of clients and potential employers you are trying to attract.


As we go through life, we go through many changes. Our faces age and we may try out new hairstyles and different looks. It is important that your headshots are up to date so that potential employers and clients have a clear idea of what you look like at present. If headshots are old, they may appear outdated, especially if the photos do not match the age on your CV or profile. This is why it is always best to have fresh, new headshots that portray you at your best!
