I was reading through a post by Kara Swisher today when I suddenly realized something. It had nothing really to do with Kara’s subject matter but more about the two Corporate ‘headshots’ that were included in her post.
I have one very simple question – why do the majority of promo (read PR) headshot pictures of company executives make them look like a bunch of dweebs?
I mean .. c’mon on guys surely you can get some better shots than what you are being cursed with for all of Internet eternity. Granted this one of Dan Rosensweig isn’t too too bad
But you really gotta feel for poor CEO Bobby Kotick after being made to look like a perennial freshman on a panty raid
And I don’t mean to pick just on these two gentleman, after all they are probably really cool guys who actually wear blue jeans hand have fun unlike how their Corp portraits make them look. the thing is you take a look at just about any company About page and it looks like the company has been taken over by a bunch of dweebish body snatchers.
Mind you I’m a fine one to talk with my self shot mug gracing social network after social network (I just wish I still had the one that Jason a friend of mine photoshopped) but at least I look cranky.
Hey, like this post? Why not share it with a buddy?Tweet
