How to Book a Pro Photoshoot

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.

Frequently Asked Questions

 

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.

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.

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.

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.
