In this blog post we are going to look at some things you need to know about getting a professional LinkedIn profile photo.
When clients first approach us about getting a professional LinkedIn profile photo these are some of the most common questions we get asked.
How much does a LinkedIn profile photo cost? This varies depending on which corporate headshot photographer you select and where you have it taken. If you want to go to a London studio for your LinkedIn profile photo then you will be paying a premium as the photographer will have to factor in his high rent and rates with his own fees. The more affordable option is to ask the corporate headshot photographer to bring his studio set up to your London offices or home as this will be the same equipment that they would use in a studio and you will get a high-quality LinkedIn profile photo at a much reduced rate.
How long does a LinkedIn profile photo session last? Some people have the idea that the session should last a couple of minutes. This is not possible as when people arrive for their LinkedIn profile photo they are stood in front of studio lighting with a large pro lens and camera staring at them. This is not a normal situation for most people and therefore they will appear uncomfortable and awkward in their first test shots. We would suggest a typical LinkedIn profile photo session last 20 mins giving the sitter time to relax in front of the camera and lights and we can capture a good varied set of headshots so you have plenty to choose from for your LinkedIn profile page.
