The answer is that everyone in business today will benefit from having a headshot. These are a standard piece of your branding, working alongside your logo, company name and leaving a powerful first impression that sets you apart online in a directory based site like Yelp or social media like Facebook.
Another common question is, should you have your headshot on your business card? Yes, if you are a business providing personal services. From health care to services in the home (Nanny, Housekeeper, Dogwalker), if you're working on a personal level, it's helpful to extend that level of a first impression on your card. If you're working in a basic need service like a Plumber or Electrician, you don't need your headshot on your card.
The most common question I hear is, when should you get a headshot? I'd recommend anyone entering the workforce get a headshot. With LinkedIn and online resume websites, your headshot helps you stand out: either as more professional or more fun to work with! That's the fun part of headshots - they have a standard for how close they are, but your facial expression and wardrobe help set that first impression.
