It’s important to keep professional portraits up to date – even for yours truly. This image is the basis for social media posts, such as LinkedIn. It has enough real estate to provide crop for their format(s) – and other sites as well.
I prefer clean backgrounds. I used to prefer white – which makes a lot of sense – except it can blend too much into default web page backgrounds. So grey is the new white. At least for me.
If you’re a professional, an investment in yourself, your career, and how others see you (and it’s extremely important that the photograph actually looks like you) is crucial. I always retouch – the camera reveals too much detail. But you have to look like you, and that’s always my goal. The best you. But you.
