"Is there any pattern in the data around professional networking photos? What professions have the highest quality photos? Do people that are fresh on the job market tend to have better headshots? Are certain countries more likely to have better professional networking photos then others?"
"Chile took the gold medal in a ranking of countries based on LinkedIn photos conducted by Snappr, a company that describes itself as “Uber for Photographers.” Snappr assessed tens of thousands of LinkedIn photos with its Photo Analyzer tool to determine who takes the best professional head shots. After Chile, Australia and the U.S. came out on top. The photos were judged on facial expression (smile and eye contact), composition and context, and quality (sharpness and saturation)."
"According to [Snappr's] data, lawyers have the best professional photos on LinkedIn, Chile is the country with the highest quality pictures, and people who recently joined a company are much more likely to have a nice photo then someone with a long tenure."
"That report is from Snappr, a photography startup that built a tool to analyze head shots and assign a score based on facial expression, image composition and photo quality. To look for patterns, the company evaluated tens of thousands of anonymized profiles and assigned scores based on everyone's pictures. The company then ranked countries and professions by who had the "best" and "worst" photos on LinkedIn."
"On-demand photography startup, Snappr just capped off its history, with an investment from YCombinator (YC). YC is the world's most successful seed accelerator.

Snappr offers affordable, on-demand professional photography services."
"Photography services is a $30 billion market, but the experience involves annoying comparison shopping, frustrating scheduling and delays, and high prices. Snappr lets you instead book a pre-vetted photographer through its app in just a minute and can soon be shooting photos at $59 an hour."
"Snappr, a site that pairs a client or person with a suitable photographer, has come up with a handy tool that analyzes your LinkedIn profile photo.

"Five years after graduating from medicine in Sydney, Matt Schiller is operating in Silicon Valley. He's not working on patients, but on the start-up he co-founded with fellow University of NSW graduate Ed Kearney.

"Sydney-based on-demand photography startup Snappr has announced today its expansion into the US with the opening of a San Francisco office and backing from US seed accelerator, YCombinator (YC)."

"When planning a big event such as a wedding, anniversary party, a corporate function or the like, every minor detail usually takes months to organise, with different goods or service providers that are central to the day being bought or hired through recommendations from friends and family. Finding the right photographer, for example, takes time, and it’s hard to know where to look or what to look for, or what kind of prices are the standard, and it’s these problems that Sydney photography startup Snappr wants to solve."
Your profile photo makes the first impression, so put a little effort into it, says resume expert and retained search consultant Donna Svei. It should look professional and representative of the job you are seeking. Selfies and vacation photos tell recruiters you couldn’t be bothered to make yourself look more professional. People can easily evaluate their profile photos using Photofeeler.com and Snappr.co," says Svei.
