How to get the perfect LinkedIn headshot (without leaving your office)

Blackburn photography firm Jak Spedding Photography Ltd has launched a new service designed to help you achieve a picture perfect professional headshot without even leaving your office.

The company has launched a new website - - dedicated to providing professional headshot photography.

And the good news is, The Headshot Guru will bring the studio to you. With a professional mobile studio, the company can travel to your premises or the location of your choice and ensure the shoot takes place at your convenience.

The site was created in response to the huge demand for corporate headshot photography among businsesses across Lancashire and the North West.


Company director Jak Spedding says research has proven the tangible benefits of a professional headshot.

He said: “We all live online now, so naturally a massive amount of networking takes place across social media channels in today's business world. LinkedIn profiles with professional headshots are proven to receive 14 times more views than those without - and let's face it, that blurry Facebook selfie is never going to make the ideal first impression to a new contact.

“Having a sharp corporate headshot is the smart way present yourself in the best possible light for establishing meaningful professional connections.”

The Headshot Guru website enables users to learn more about the benefits of corporate headshots, find information on how to prepare for and use the resulting shots for maximum impact, as well as easily enquire online.

Speaking about the inspiration behind The Headshot Guru branding, Jak said: “Having a headshot done isn’t most people’s idea of fun, so it takes an experienced photographer to put you at ease and help you nail that perfect shot. The Headshot Guru is our tongue-in-cheek way of letting people know they’re in safe hands when they come to us, and they’ll leave with something they’ll genuinely feel confident to use.”

The Headshot Guru offers professional headshot photography for social media, websites, email signatures, business cards and press releases.
