When people think about getting their professional photos done, they often check what all other professionals have and they go for the exact same thing. Many use their photos only as LinkedIn Profile Picture and for business cards. Having your professional photos done is an investment of both time and money, so it is good to have a plan in mind to get the most value out of them.
