Your LinkedIn profile picture is an important element of your LinkedIn presence. According to LinkedIn just having a picture makes your profile 14 times more likely to be viewed by others.
It’s best to have a headshot taken by a professional photographer. A photographer can ensure that the lighting is flattering and that you’re putting your best foot (or rather, face) forward.
