A dynamic, engaging head shot portrait is your front page for YOU. It should have personality, connection with the viewer and make people want to do business with you.
It is not however, a nice picture taken by someone with 'a nice camera'.
I've heard it so many times..... "Geoff in the office has a nice camera, I'll get him to take one". Please, don't do this.
Whether you chose to book a professional or not is your choice, but it may not be the best option to get a colleague to do it if they lack the skills and experience to create an engaging portrait. It also makes you look cheap, not interested in your image to others, think how much that could cost you in the long run.
I'm sure we have all seen the terrible selfies on Linked In, and it still shocks me that many simply do not appreciate the power and true value of a great portrait.
Food for thought......
