Frequently asked questions about LinkedIn profile photos.
Here is a list of FAQs we receive before undertaking a LinkedIn profile photo commission.
1. How long will it take? We allow 30 mins for a typical LinkedIn profile photo commission. Sometimes people want to utilise the entire 30 mins to explore a wide variety of LinkedIn profile headshots. Other people prefer things to happen quickly, so we capture a professional corporate headshot with a white background, and they can view the image before them getting back to work.
2. How many Linkedin profile photos will I receive? This, again, depends on how long the individual wants to spend in the studio. On average, we capture around 40 profile photos, and we send all of these via our wetransfer site. From these the client can select a couple they are going to use on their LinkedIn profile page, and we photoshop them for LinkedIn.
3. How much does a LinkedIn profile photo cost? We charge £150 plus VAT for individuals to come to our studio, or we can bring our studio set-up, which includes lighting and background roll to your London offices. The results will be identical, whichever location you prefer.
4. How long does it take to get the profile photos back to me? We can turn around the headshots the next day, and once we have the preferred headshots for editing and retouching, we can return these the following day. So all in all, approx 48 hours. For urgent updates with a new LinkedIn profile photo commission, we can turn things around within 24 hours.
5. Can I come to your studio for my new LinkedIn profile photo? Yes, we are currently using an office room in Beech Street, which is easily accessible from The City or the West End. We are open from 9 am to 5.30 pm, Monday to Friday. You can book via https://www.corporatephotographerslondon.com/contact/, and please do not turn up without an appointment as we are often out working in London offices.
6. Why are professional LinkedIn profile photos so expensive? Simple to answer. Professional photographer, high-quality studio lighting, background roll and stands, travelling to clients’ offices and studio hire costs. You can avoid these costs and get a friend to take a portrait on their phone, but you can see on LinkedIn who has cut corners on their profile photo and who will be getting the business benefits and has a professional LinkedIn profile photo.
