Ask Yourself This

Ask yourself this.. When you look through LinkedIn for new professional connections. What the first thing you look at?

The answer in many cases if not all, will be the profile image. The image you see will make you in that split second click next or take the opportunity to look at the persons profile.

“By looking at a face for less than a second, we can judge someone’s age, gender, race, emotional state, and even their trustworthiness,” You may be under the impression that it takes weeks of getting to know someone before you can trust them, but your brain has already done the job of decoding their personality within the first second of meeting them face-to-face.

Now ask yourself this.. Does my profile image make me stand out from the crowd?

If the answer is NO, “why haven’t you done something about it” Your looking through all of your social media platforms, judging people by their profile image, and thats what they are doing to you..

Corporate Drama The Lesson Of The Week

This week I have been working with a great client, Mark Huggins he is the owner and MD of Corporate Drama. Corporate Drama was launched in 1999 and quickly established itself as the leading provider of professional business role-players in both the public and private sector. Corporate Drama help business people learn the behaviours and relationship skills to create the very best companies in which to work!

Mark approached my company DW Images Photography back at the start of the summer because he needed new headshot’s. Very happy with the service he got, Mark again contacted me a few weeks ago with a request to do some video work. As an update to his companies website, Mark required two introduction videos. This is a new string to my bow and service that I looking to add to portfolio, I explained this to Mark, he agreed to work with me and we discussed what he needed and how I would meet his expectations. I set too and did a couple of weeks of testing in my studio.

This week Mark came with his lines firmly in his head and we worked together on producing these two short videos.  As I said this is something I want to expand on and this weeks learning curve has been very fulfilling.

The Power Of LinkedIn

Had Mark come to the studio this morning, he owns Corporate Drama www.corporatedrama.co.uk and he wanted to update his head shots. Spent a couple of hrs with him in the studio this morning and he went away with some awesome shots.

These shots prove the power of using LinkedIn to network, I was making connections last week and Mark was one of them. My timing was perfect as he was looking to have new head shots. He checked out my profile and website that day and booked his session.

Picking and choosing the right people to connect with will pay dividends and don’t bombard people with loads of messages telling them what you do. Be polite send a thank you for the connection and explain your services, tell them that you’re their if they need you. Send updates every so often just as a reminder but don’t be pushy. Its all about networking! Upset a connection and you have lost all of those potential recommendations.

Why The Duck Would You Do That…..

We have all been on websites where the images of the product they are selling just suck. If you are anything like me, you will avoid these sites like the plague when parting with your hard earned cash.

We all judge on first impressions, and an unprofessional looking website will be loosing you hundreds of customers by simply not investing in professional photography. The penny pinchers out there will say “I know I will use my phone.” It’s not a case of saving money, with professional photography you are investing in your brand and staying a step ahead of your competitors to attract customers to your product.

Here at DW Images Photography I invest a lot of time giving my clients professional images that they are proud to use on there websites. The Images below are what I have put together to prove the point, the first one is just shot on my mobile phone under electric light and the second is shot in a professional studio set up.

If you are looking to add or update your images on your website, come and talk to myself at DW Images Photography. I can offer great rates and quick turn around on your website photography.
