Why Choose Online Profile Pros
Why Can't I Just Use a Selfie?
You're profile photo is your literally the first impression people have of you and a selfie just doesn't cut it. This is especially true for your LinkedIn profile. A potential employer will be immediately turned off because it shows that you don't care about your profile, much less your job. In the dating world a selfie gives the impression that you're selfish and/or don't have any friends that can take your photo.
Why Do I Need a Pro Profile Photo?
Your profile is an investment in your professional and romantic future. It's important to standout and get the recognition you deserve. Would you take your car to a neighbor down the street to fix just because he owns a wrench? No! You would only go to a professional. Same with photography, while anyone can own a camera not everyone knows how to use it to make you look your best.
HOW ARE THE PHOTOGRAPHERS CERTIFIED?
Our photographers go through a thorough application and review process, including a robust examination of their portfolios to make sure they are a good fit for our shooting specifications and clients needs. Our photographers understand what a great online profile photo should look like, whether it be for business, dating or social media and have the skill to pull it off.
We want you to be completely satisfied with your photos. However, the nature of photography is that it is subjective art form. Not everyone will like every photo. There are a large number of variables that go into a photo shoot , some of which are out of teh control of teh individual photographer. The goal of any photo shoot is to shoot a sufficient number of images in order to get a small percentage that meet all of the requirements and are aesthetically pleasing to the viewer or intended viewer.
Therefore, your photos can only be judged on their technical merits, such as focus, sharpness, color and brightness. If you believe that your photos are lacking in these technical aspects, Online Profile Pros Inc will review the images and determine their technical merits. If the photos are determined to be inferior then you will be offered, free retouching (when applicable) a re-shoot or a full refund. Online Profile Pros reserves the right to partial refunds in select instances.
PLEASE NOTE: This guarantee does not extend to issues with your clothing choices, physical appearance, hair, make-up, weather, acts of God or any other issues out of Online Profile Pros control. In these cases, we will not be able to issue you a re-shoot or refund.
Our goal is to never make you look fake or overly posed! Our photographers shoot outside or in casual locations outside the studio to prevent this. We use the best photographers and best equipment to make you look your very best, giving you every opportunity to make a great first impression. Think about it, celebrities use professional photographers because they know that professional photographers are going to capture the best images of them. Why not do the same for you?
No, it is not just a series of “head shots” or portraits. We will provide you with a complete dating profile portfolio so that you can change the look of your profile many times. In your portfolio, your photographer will work with you to create the best most natural “look”. We usually recommend a variety of shots from ¾ body. ½ body to close-ups to give you the variety you need to stand out form the crowd and make the best “first impression” possible.
Online Profile Pros works hard to only use the very best professional photographers that we can find in your area. Our photographers go through an application and review process and a robust examination of their portfolios to make sure they are a good fit for our shooting specifications and clients needs. Our goal is to use professional photographers with the right equipment, experience and understanding of lifestyle photography. Photographers with years of experience shooting portraits, fashion, actors headshots, weddings and editorial shoots. These photographers have what it takes to understand what a great online profile photo should look like, whether it be for business, dating or social media, and have the skill to pull it off. On occasion, and depending on the area in which you live, commercial studios may be attached to the photographer’s home.
Really! You’re profile photo is your literally the first impression people have of you and a selfies just isn’t going to cut it anymore. A selfies makes the wrong first impression and tell people you don’t really care all that much whether you get that great new job or awesome date. Worse it might tell them that you don’t even have any friends that you can get to shoot a few snaps of you …even if it’s on a mobile phone. The bottom line is selfies were fine a few years ago, but not any more.
Selfies for LinkedIn / Business Profiles
This is especially true for business platforms like LinkedIn. While LinkedIn does not officially ban selfies, they expect that you would know better and only use more professional photos for your online profile. LinkedIn only allows one main profile photo that is front and center of your profile. This is where you want to make teh right first impression to potential hiring managers and recruiters. There are other places within your profile to add additional media but we would not recommend adding selfies even there.
Your profile is an investment in your romantic future. Nowadays, it’s important to standout and get the recognition you deserve. So while anyone can own a camera not everyone knows how to use it to make you look your best. When you finish signing up for an online dating and you run the first search, what do you see? Answer, row after row of photos of people that meet your criteria near you. In fact, most online dating sites will not show a profile without a photo. So what does this tell you? Well, you’re competing with lots and lots of other people for the same group of people who meet a certain “type” if you don’t stand out and look your best, then who’s going to notice you? Nobody. If you’re going to go through all the trouble to use a dating site then why not do it right and create a great profile that puts you on the track to success. Your photo is a cornerstone to achieving that success becasue if they don’t like your photo they sure as heck are not going to read your profile.
Does $2-$3 per photo should like a lot for 50 to 100 professional photos or more for an investment that can be used across all your business, dating and social platforms? We didn’t think so.
