Your LinkedIn profile is one of the most important places to showcase your professional skills and accomplishments. To make sure your profile looks its best, it’s important to have a high-quality headshot. Here are six tips for taking the perfect LinkedIn headshot!

1. Smile! – A genuine smile is one of the most important things to capture in a headshot. It shows that you’re approachable and welcoming, two qualities that are essential in any professional setting.

2. Make eye contact – Looking directly into the camera shows confidence and creates a connection with viewers. This is especially important for LinkedIn, since it’s such a networking-focused platform.

3. Pick the right setting – When choosing a location for your headshot, make sure it’s well-lit and has a plain background. This will help you stand out from the rest of the LinkedIn crowd.

4. Dress the part – What you wear in your headshot should be appropriate for your industry. If you work in a casual field, dress down. But if you work in a formal industry, it is better to dress more conservatively.

5. Keep your head and shoulders in proportion – In order to look good in a headshot, you need to make sure that your head and shoulders are in proportion. This means that your head should not be too small or too large in relation to your body.

6. Avoid using props – Props can be distracting and take away from the focus of your headshot, which should be you. If you absolutely must use a prop, make sure it is something simple that will not draw too much attention.

If you’re looking to update your LinkedIn profile or simply want to have a great headshot on hand for other professional purposes, keep these tips in mind! And if you need help getting started, Alimond Studio would be more than happy to assist you. With our years of experience and expertise, we’ll make sure you walk away with a picture you love.
