Professional headshots are needed for many marketing and promotional needs such as Model and Actor giveaway prints, along with digital files, brochures, billboards, business cards, and other types of communication. Social media requires new and professional headshots too. In fact, LinkedIn profile photos seem to be one of the fastest growing markets for quality headshot photography.
