What you are wearing tells people a lot about who you are, so you want to make sure that you are wearing something that tells people who you are.

Here are two questions to ask yourself before picking out your professional headshot wardrobe:

  1. What are these photos for? Are they for your new about us page on your company website or your Linkedin profile image?
  2. What do you want these images to say about you?

Whatever your goals might be, your photographer will help direct you so that your images will convey confidence, competence, approachability, and trustworthiness. A good rule of thumb is to wear what you might wear to a business meeting or what you would wear to an interview. The goal is to strike a balance between uniqueness and uniformity. A helpful resource for wardrobe inspiration is to look at other Linkedin profiles in your industry and find 2 or 3 options for outfits that match what’s in your wardrobe.

Choose something that is flattering and fits your body type. A jacket that is too large or a shirt that is too small can be distracting. Make sure that everything is wrinkle-free and clean. And if you are unsure about what you should wear, bring options and your photographer will help you decide.
