LinkedIn Head Shots (2017 – 2018 Academic Year)

A good professional head shot is one of the most important elements of your LinkedIn profile.  We do not recommend using a amateur photo or cropping a personal photo as your head shot.  Directions for obtaining head shots in the Piper Center are as follows:

  1. To request an appointment, please stop in to the Piper Center or email: piper.center@stolaf.edu. We’ll then work with you find a time that works for you and for our the schedules of our student photographers.
  • Please dress appropriately for the photo. Appropriate dress is clothing that your industry considers to be professional for your work. (i.e. The style for fine arts careers may be very different than from business attire.)  Coaches are available in the Piper Center to assist you in choosing an appropriate dress and style for your photo.
  • Please be on time and ready for the photo when you arrive at the Piper Center.
