With the growth of Social Media, our online appearance can be just as important; possibly in a modern context even more important than our personal appearance.

Here a few historical examples for you. Henry VIII, knew the importance of his professional Appearance. When we think of Henry VIII we think of a gigantic, defiant bull like figure. In reality this wasn’t true, it was an image created by the Artist Hans Holbein in 1537.

Henry VIII Napoleon

Likewise Napoleon from the Beginning of his career appreciated the importance of imposing his image upon the world through the best artists available.

So why should we think any different to Henry VIII& Napoleon. If they had Social Media how would they represent themselves to the public?

 

Posting amateur images of yourself taken from a night out on your Linkedin Profile won’t make you look serious to potential employers and clients. Nor represent you as a giant in your profession.

Your image must reflect your attention to detail and professionalism. You only get one chance to make a good impression. Good Head Shots immediately convey that you are serious and focused.

Matt Littler and Darren Jeffries, T4, Hollyoakes Actors, Photography (Rory Lewis)

Matt Littler and Darren Jeffries found fame on Hollyoaks with long-term roles as Max Cunningham and Sam ‘OB’ O’Brien. After a decade on the Channel 4 soap, they started presenting work, including their own radio show on Preston-based Rock FM and TV shows on 4Music. Their new series Rivals, which sees them competing in minority sports, is on Saturdays on Channel 4.Matt Littler and Darren Jeffries, T4, Hollyoakes Actors, Photography (Rory Lewis)I was commissioned to shoot some new material for the guys this week. They where a pleasure to work with, and I love the poses and quirky looks of the first retouched images. I hope to work with them again in the future, actors do seem to make great subjects as they are trained to pose on camera. Stacey Smith did a wonderful job with the guys makeup, also thank you too Charlie McDonald for assisting me on the shoot.
