Why Headshots?

Seriously. What’s all this fuss about having profile photos and headshots? Does it really matter?

I guess that depends on how you think about it.

Most of us probably think our headshot is simply a version of that face we see in the mirror. Maybe not when we first wake up but after we’ve tidied up a bit.

Ya know, it’s just a face. Right?

Sort of.

Yes, it is a face (often an entire head) but it’s more than a mirror image. The most important distinction is that unlike that reflection in the mirror, a headshot is not for us. It’s for the people who see us. It’s a way of greeting the world.
