Professional Business Headshots Sunnyvale


Every picture tells a story.

Today many of our first interactions with the decision-makers we need to influence are online, which means that your headshots play a significant role in creating others' first impressions of you.


Studies show that people form durable first impressions about us in less than one second the first time they see us, whether in person or in a photograph.

Scanning through LinkedIn, you'll see a host of bad photos people use in place of a headshot. You'll see a lot of bathroom selfies or snapshots with people cropped out of the frame. Sometimes the person is so tiny you can't even see them.

Headshots like those don't communicate the strength of character, drive, and commitment needed to advance your career. Instead, they display carelessness, lack of professionalism, and low self-esteem.


Those photos aren't helping you get the offer, promotion, or raise that you deserve. They're probably working against you.

Not sure where to get professional headshots, or what questions to ask a professional photographer? 

The Headshot Success Guide will teach you all you need to know to ask good questions to help you make well-informed decisions about your headshots and your professional headshot photographer.
