Tips for taking a professional LinkedIn Headshot in NYC

We have all seen the weirdly cropped photo from a cocktail hour as someones LinkedIn profile photo, is that you? Wouldn’t you rather impress all of your professional contacts with a photo that screams “I’m successful and I know it?” Well, have no fear, because we have 5 tips for taking a professional LinkedIn photo in NYC that will make you look like a boss (or at least someone who could be the boss).

1: Find a good background.

I’m not talking about the Statue of Liberty or the Empire State Building. Sure, they’re iconic, but they’re also cliché. Instead, find a simple, uncluttered background that won’t distract from your charming smile. Our recommendation is a clean neutral background, you see a lot of white and grey out there for a reason.  If you’d like to stand out from the crowd a little bit, a nice solid color is also a great option.

2: Dress appropriately.

I know you look great in your favorite t-shirt, and no one wears a tie to the office anymore, but save it for casual Fridays. Dress as you would for a job interview or a meeting with your most important client. Sure, if you work in tech, you can get away with most anything, but we find that in NYC business dress has stayed pretty conservative.  If the person you answer to is wearing a tie, you probably should be too.

3: Smile with your eyes.

Smiling is important, but so is not looking like a serial killer. Practice smiling with your eyes so that you look approachable and friendly. Understandably if you are a white collar litigator, your look will be much different than someone in business development who is there to network and help originate business.  If you aren’t sure what look suits you best, try a little bit of everything.  Simply looking friendly has never hurt anyone.

4: Use natural light.

Fluorescent lighting is your worst enemy. It makes you look like a zombie who hasn’t slept in a week(granted, if you’re updating your LinkedIn photo and trying to lateral to a new company, you might not have the best work/life balance). Instead, use natural light to your advantage. Go outside or stand near a window.

5: Hire a professional.

Yes, it may cost you a a little more than you are anticipating, but think of it as an investment in your future. You’ll have a great headshot for LinkedIn and when that is the first impression a headhunter and hiring team has of you, you need to look like you care.  A $500 investment here will be a drop in the bucket compared to the potential additional compensation you may find by simply looking the part. 

So there you have it, 5 quick tips for taking a professional LinkedIn photo in NYC that will make you look like a pro (or at least someone who is trying really hard). Now go forth and conquer LinkedIn. And don’t forget to hashtag #blessed on all of your posts.

You Only Have Once Chance To Make A Great First Impression!​

In NYC Headshots Are Extremely Important!

  • Your Headshot Follows You Everywhere

    Once you begin your career, are on the company website and begin to have a presence on LinkedIn, you will never be completely anonymous on the internet again.  Getting your headshot done by a professional.
  • Remote Workers Are Flash Judged By Their LinkedIn Headshot

    We all know that in 2022 the lateral job market is extremely strong.  As companies grow leaner, time becomes more valuable and with that the recruiting process is leaned out. When a recruiter clicks on a LinkedIn profile and the person has a great headshot, this shows that they take pride in the way they are presented professionally.  When all credentials are the same and it’s time for a round of interviews, would you want to bring in the person with a professional headshot or the one who has a photo of them from a cocktail party, with the wine flute barely cropped out of the shot?

  • Your Self Presentation Could Mean A Higher Salary 

We all know that every job has a salary range.  Some firms(looking at you lawyers) have a pretty set standard of what one can expect for a salary.  But in so many fields, that range can be vast.  No one want’s to settle for the low end of the range.  When you walk in(or Zoom in) for your interview, you want the recruiter on the other side to already have an idea of what to expect.  It has long been known that a great LinkedIn Profile Photo can lead to a higher floor for salary negotiations.  While a professional headshot may seem expensive in face value, the thousands of additional dollars in your salary will quickly out weigh that expense.

Is your Linkedin headshot like 10-years old? 😬

So often people let their old headshot live forever as their LinkedIn profile photo. Is your current LinkedIn profile picture from college or from when you first setup your profile? People always ask us how often they should get a new headshot. Our rule of thumb is somewhere around the 3-5 year mark. Your LinkedIn headshot should resemble the person showing up to the meeting, not the person you were 5 years ago.
