The Perfect Fortune 10 Headshot
You work for a Fortune 10 company. Here are some characteristics your headshot should have.
1. The Perfect Headshot Engages People – When people look at our headshots, we should be looking at them as much as they’re looking at us. Our headshots should be like meeting face to face. With facial expression coaching, we can build trust and create connection with our headshots.
2. The Perfect Headshot Presents a Genuine and Settled Us – Real smiles, ranging from hints of a smile to full-on toothy smiles. A great photographer will draw genuine reactions from us, not tell us to smile. Coaching will get us genuinely reacting while look cool, calm, and collected.
3. The Perfect Headshot Showcases Our Faces – From social media to websites and printed materials, headshots are often placed into relatively small spaces. Our faces should fill a large portion of the frame, around 60% of it, so that people can see us and connect with us, with eye contact.
I hope you have a headshot that checks all these boxes and allows strangers to connect with you. If you need a headshot coach and photographer to get your profile cranking, there is information below.
