London’s St Paul’s
One of the most recognisable London buildings is St Pauls. Known the world over as a London landmark. Many of our clients ask for this cityscape in the background to show clients and potential employers that they are London based on their LinkedIn profile page. Some clients ask for a subtle London backdrop with the well-known building out of focus but still recognisable.
For other clients they want the London landmark building to be clearly shown within their LinkedIn profile photo.
Both the above LinkedIn profile photos feature St Pauls, but they were captured in different locations. In the first profile photo, we met the businesswoman on the millennium bridge as this location is free from cars and other building obscuring the view of St Pauls. The reason this is an excellent public view is due to the St Paul’s Heights which is to protect and enhance important local views of the Cathedral from the South Bank, Thames bridges and certain points to the north, west and east. The second LinkedIn profile photo was captured in a public viewing area on top of an office building which has public access to the roof.
London’s Big Ben
The next location for your profile photo is on the Southbank with a view of Big Ben. This is a world-known London location and many people who visit London will go home with a photo of the tower. What is not known to many is that the actual bell is named Big Ben and the tower is called the Elizabeth Tower.
The Southbank & Westminster Bridge
If you want a subtle Linked profile photo showing London as your City we have a little area we use quite often along the Southbank as you approach Westminster Bridge. Distinct and ornate streetlights. These feature fish and have a distinct maritime quality which associates the Linkdedin profile photo with the River Thames.
