Your Head Shot, 1st Impression is everything!!!

A good professional photographer is worth their weight in gold, and even if you're not in business, if you're on the job market, it can make a massive difference to whether people pick up the phone to talk to you, or send you that email that could mean a very lucrative oportunity for you.You don't get second chances to make a first impression, so make sure you show yourself in your best possible light, especially when you are likely to often be "meeting" people for the first time online these days.  A professionally taken headshot is vital! The more professional, yet approachable your headshot is, the more likely people will reach out to ask you about you, your business, your products. And when people reach out to you, that's a hot lead you cannot undervalue!Communications aren't just verbal, or in text, they come in visual format too; your logo, and your headshot amongst many other visual communication tools.Invest in your self today, a dission you'll never regret.Comments by Claire BoylesPhotos by MG Photography & Design

Here are 11 ways to make sure you won't rue the day you hired your photographer…1.
