Why You Need a Good Headshot

According to a 2018 research paper published in the Association of Psychological Science, Irmak Okten writes that people first impressions about other people's character, such as trustworthiness and competence based on how they look. It’s the human thing to do.


According to a 2016 research on first impressions, two Princeton researchers found that people make lasting judgments about other people within the first 1/10 second of meeting/seeing them.

This proves in our online-driven world, especially here in Silicon Valley, your headshot is either helping you or hurting you.


People love a winner.

You can’t control how others judge you, but you can influence the decision-makers who are important to your success with a great professional headshot that makes you look like a winner.


In my photoshoots, I coach people to bring out their best version. I aim to show you as a confident and approachable professional everyone wants on their team.

The first time people will see you in today's digital age is on social media sites like LinkedIn, Facebook, Twitter, a personal website, or in a press release. Using a great executive headshot allows you to define and direct the judgments people make about you in that crucial 1/10 second.
