LinkedIn Profile Photography

Why do we use LinkedIn? We use it to connect with other professionals, and maybe even potential clients. Let’s make sure to be giving out the right impression of ourselves. Research shows that your profile picture will be that determining factor of whether someone continues to look at your profile or not. Anyone who sees your LinkedIn page will first click n your profile picture. If they like what they see, they may continue to look at you. If they don’t, they’ll move on. According to research, you have 7 seconds to make a first impression on someone. Jen is a expert LinkedIn portrait photographer and expert expression coach.  She will guid you to get the best shot possible. 

1. Composing the Perfect LinkedIn Profile Picture. Let’s start by focusing on your composition. Your photo should be neither a full body image nor a face-only. You want the sweet spot in between. We want to see your shoulders, your face, and some of your background. Whatever you do, make sure to take up the full frame. There’s nothing anybody hates more than having to squint at your image or not be able to see you at all. As a Pittsburgh photographer that is especially trained I will help you get this balance just right for you. 

Your image backdrops. Remember, this is a corporate headshot. But it’s okay to use a more colorful, fun background for LinkedIn. But we have found that a solid color, like a light grey, a dark grey or, solid white background not only to lessen any distraction but also highlight yourself more in the photo. 

2. Personality Meets Professionalism. Your LinkedIn profile picture, like a business headshot, should be a mixture of professionalism and personality. The Idea of an extremely serious headshot has become very dated.  The key is to look friendly and approachable, with a genuine smile or natural face, to encourage connection with other professionals.  This may seem daunting, but don’t worry about it! We’re here to help you capture the perfect facial expression. 

Part of bringing out your personality means looking like yourself. Nobody wants surprises when it comes to your online self. While your hair, wardrobe, and makeup (especially ladies) might enhance your beauty, it should still look natural. People are looking to work with you, and they want to know who they’re working with. 

 You’ve gotten your image, now what? Don’t over-edit your photo! No filters!  LinkedIn not Facebook or Instagram.  Keep your image a sharp, clean-looking, natural photo.  We provide you with a final image that is perfectly sized and cropped for LinkedIn.

3. Your Business Best. Wardrobe, our favorite topic. We talk about this in almost every article, but it’s just so important. For your LinkedIn profile you want to wear something that you would wear to your workplace. It should represent you at your day to day business best.

Hopefully these tips will help you take and upload your LinkedIn profile picture. Remember, this will be the first thing anyone looks at on your page, so make it the best, and most accurate, representation of yourself you possibly can!

Instagram post 17843282042267132 I love execs who aren’t afraid of color and a little creativity.
Yes, many executives still need your traditional suit-and-tie photo (see that one in our following post tomorrow), but the fact is, most corporate leaders aren’t wearing traditional corporate garb on a day to day basis.
There are so many great choices out there when it comes to blazers, sports coats, or whatever you want to call the suit jacket alternative.  Don’t be afraid of a cool color and striking texture.  You don’t need to go full-pattern to stand out.

Instagram post 18149583697043817 Composure. Discernment. Competence.  Dignity.  When I think of those who choose the legal profession, those are the adjectives that come to my mind.  And this photo represents that to me.
Perhaps it’s because I was drawn to that profession when I was in high school... although let’s be honest, if you went to an upper-suburbia school in the northeast in the 90s and had good grades, that’s what your were gently influenced to become. Well, that or a doctor.
Needless to say, I chose neither.  Although it was important for me to choose a direction in life that involved helping others.  Through the years I have seen how much lawyers accomplish in helping people, in so many different situations of life.
So give your lawyer a hug today, because they spend a lot of time buried in a ton of papers looking at rambling words to help you get the best deal you can from life.
Ok, I was kidding a little bit about the “hug your lawyer” thing.... but hey, all of us need a little appreciation.  Maybe just text them a 😃👍 instead. 😉#pittsburgh

Instagram post 17871755107750711 So you saw the other photo like this that I took of Dan, that was pretty much straight out of camera... other than the fact that I took the @cubcadet_usa logo off his hat. 😂So what makes this photo different?  4 levels of @infinitecolorpanel grading, gradient shadow to make the subject stand out more, freq sep on face, curves adjustment, @joelgrimesworkshops cloud kit brushes on sky.  All that work done by my postproduction dude, @dan_jenworleyphotography

Instagram post 17910759208449414 It’s been a good first week back to work:  Thanks, Louis, for coming in on my first day back!  I’m really appreciative that many of my clients whose appointments were cancelled back in March/April, didn’t forget about me. 😁#smallbusiness #openforbusiness
It’s probably going to be a slower month for photographers, since many clients need to get their long-overdue hair appointment completed first.
My good friend @georgeoushairatcapretti I know is working ridiculously hard, while observing all the new protocols, to get everyone in. #pittsburghhairstylist #pittsburghphotographer
