  • @Lee Coles I really don't understand this comment at all. If someone hasn't put a photo up yet, how long will it take to hire a pro? A week or so? Leave it blank until then. As for updating the profile, most professional headshot photographers will supply a range of images so you can change them up every so often. Everyone I've spoken to about this article (both photographers and non photographers) have all agreed it's very bad advice and incredibly unprofessional.

  • The aim of the article is simply to encourage users who haven't had the time, or perhaps not thought about updating their photo - and this article is some simple quick tips to help some users upload a photo. Its not aimed at replacing headshot photographers.
