BNR 86: Photography and Your Personal Brand

May 3, 2016
Brand Newsroom Marketing Podcast

Are you too sexy for LinkedIn? That’s the question photographer Julissa Shrewsbury posed in a recent blog post designed to get people thinking about what the images they use on social media say about their level of professionalism.

It got the Brand Newsroom team thinking about personal branding. Julissa joined James, Nic and Sarah for a chat.

Here are some key take-outs:

“If you are trying to project a sexy image, it’s probably the wrong image for work—unless you are a sex worker.” — Sarah

“We have got to remember that every time we put something out there it’s so shareable… you have to have that professional look for your visuals—you can’t take a selfie.” — Nic

“A closed mouth smile does not give a message of friendly and approachable. As much as people tend to hate their own smile, other people love their smile. It’s your most natural look.” — Julissa Shrewsbury
