Becs Bate - female headshot

Last month I was invited by Becs Bate, Social Media Executive, to join her in one of her Monday livestreams to reveal ‘What Makes A Great LinkedIn Profile Picture’. This took me out of my comfort zone; it’s a common myth that photographers are comfortable on the other side of the lens – I’m like you, I notice things that others don’t – in this instance I realised that I wriggle about way too much. But it was a great experience, it does me good to put myself in the shoes of those who choose me to take their headshot. It was my first live interview which made it interesting to say the least.

Becs recorded the interview an you can watch it on YouTube here. She’s followed it up with a really useful blog post which is a great read. It also has my top eleven tips for creating great social media profile photos.
