What's the difference between using a simple photo taken by a friend and a modern, high-quality headshot taken by a pro photographer when it comes to your LinkedIn profile or your acting career? Does it really make that big of a difference, and if so, why?
But if it's not going to break the bank and you're debating whether to have a friend (or photographer who doesn't specialize in headshot photography) shoot your headshot, think twice. There is a lot more that goes into a headshot than you might realize, and a lot more riding on its success than you think.
The decision of course is completely up to you, but hopefully this article sheds some light onto what goes into a professional headshot and why hiring a pro who specializes in headshots can make a difference.
