Social media photography for Facebook and Twitter

Social media is now a part of everyday life, with almost everybody connected to the internet 24/7 via their PC’s, tablet computers or smart phones. Social media has grown to become one our primary communication mediums so it’s only natural to want to find your perfect picture to support your Facebook or Twitter page. Your photograph can tell so much about you and as the old saying goes – “first impressions count”. It’s also important to consider how you want your photograph to be used. Are you simply using the photograph to represent you socially or is it going to be used alongside a business page? These issues can all be discussed during your free consultation so on the day of the shoot you know exactly what you want.

It’s often incredibly difficult to find a picture you really love, especially if it’s taken on a night out or on holiday. There could be focus issues, lighting imperfections or maybe even the dreaded ‘red eye’. You just may not have found that photograph you were really happy with. At Headshots Birmingham we can help with our photography packages tailored specifically for Facebook, Twitter and Google Plus profiles. We can shoot in the studio using a range of backgrounds and props or we could work with you in a location of your choice. For example, if you love the outdoors we could set up a shoot at a local beauty spot or woodland. We are experts at making photographs reflect your individuality and personality without looking forced or staged.

LinkedIn photography

Many individuals and corporations now use LinkedIn as one of their primary recruiting tools. An up-to-date and concise LinkedIn profile is vital in business. However, we like many others are often very surprised by the choice of photograph numerous people use to support their LinkedIn profile. After all, your LinkedIn profile is essentially your online CV so you want it to be as close to perfection as possible. Employers and recruiters have commented to us that profiles with poor quality or inappropriate photography can often be overlooked, even if the content of their profile is strong. In fact, most employers have stated that they would rather no picture was shown as opposed to one with you wearing sunglasses or looking slightly worse-for-wear on a Friday night. The challenge in finding the right photograph for your LinkedIn profile is balancing professionalism with character – showcasing you as an attractive potential employee without losing sight of your most important unique characteristics. At Headshots Birmingham we can work with you to capture your ideal LinkedIn profile picture that you will love for years to come.

Headshots for online dating

Online dating is a fantastic way to meet new people. With so many online dating profiles out there a high quality, engaging photograph is as important as the words you use to describe yourself. As they say, “a picture speaks a thousand words”.

We guarantee that you will love your photograph and it will be a perfect accompaniment to your online dating profile.
