|Employee headshots -- a great gift idea|
This is going to be a short post as I've written about a similar type of shoot before, but I wanted to publish this well ahead of the holidays because it's the perfect time to suggest a company headshot photo shoot as a gift to your staff. We're doing more and more of these as leaders, wanting to show their appreciation for the unique contributions of every employee, realize that a great way to do so is to give everyone the most personal gift possible -- a professional portrait of their unique selves.
Not only does everyone get a great profile portrait but they get the fun of experiencing a professional photo shoot, and while it's true that quite a few people purport to hate having their pictures taken, we make it as "fun and painless" as possible (people say this about our shoots), while making sure to get the best and most flattering shot possible in the time we have.
While it's true that pretty much every company these days has the resources to put together some kind of employee portrait shoot I can pretty much promise that a professional photographer will deliver better, more consistent and more professional looking results. We also know from experience that employees really appreciate the fact that we use "real, professional gear", and take care with every individual who steps in front of our camera.
I've written before about the importance of a good, professional headshot. With business networking portals, internal corporate communications platforms, and every other social media app facilitating inclusion of a picture of the person posting or contributing, it makes sense to 1) have a profile pic, and 2) look good and look your part. But how many people can afford to go out and get a professional headshot? A professional staff portrait shoot is a great way to give employees something they may not be in a position to organize themselves, but will really appreciate, with the added bonus that companies are ultimately more professionally represented.
Please call or e-mail me to talk about how we can make your employees feel special and look great. Book now before the holidays, or give employees something to look forward to in the new year. Look forward to speaking!
