When To Update Your Headshots

What should you wear for your LinkedIn Headshot?

If you’re currently using a headshot across your social platforms, email and website, then that’s great – you’re on the right track. However, it’s important to make sure your headshot stays up to date and relevant.

For you, this might be looking professional, trustworthy and friendly. Or it could communicate that you and your brand are fun, creative and outgoing.

One thing is for sure, your headshot needs to accurately give the right impressions. That’s why it’s always beneficial to work with a professional headshot photographer who can guide you in the right direction. We consider things like background, setting, pose and lighting to communicate lots of little things to your audience.

‘When do I update my headshots’ is a common query. There’s no strict rule on this, and ultimately it comes down to how your headshot is representing you.
