Headshot...as the name implies is an image of just below the shoulders and above that captures your domestic or corporate image. Social media dominates with "selfies" imitating a professional headshot. Beware that phone cameras notoriously distort our facial features and are of poor detail. (If you insist on the do-it-yourself headshot, use a selfie stick to move the camera away to avoid distortion) .
For the serious minded types, a professional image that captures who you are and how you want others to perceive you is critical. Use them on your website and social media to capture the interest of others. A great image will bring far more attention to you and your work than a so-so image. That having been said, update your headshot every 3 years. Perhaps your haircut has changed or some other feature of your appearance...currency is essential. By the way, how often due you update your eyeglass frames or fashion for that matter ?????? Yes your whole head is just as important.
