A profile picture used to be thought of as simply a vantage point of how a photo was taken- usually the side view of a person’s face. In this modern day of technology, however, profile pictures have taken on a whole new meaning and life. A profile picture is the default photo displayed on everything from your email account, to your online networking page, to dating services. It’s essentially a thumbnail sized summary of you.
Whether you’re networking trying to build business contacts, or putting yourself out there for potential dating partners, you want your profile picture to be an eye catcher. Luckily, there are countless great spots in Berkeley and Oakland with awesome backdrops for profile photos. With attractive buildings, gardens, trails, parks, and peaks, there is no shortage of eye catching locations around here.
On professional networking sites such as LinkedIn, you want to market yourself as a valuable asset to employers and clients alike. On dating sites like Tinder, OkCupid, Bumble, and Coffee Meets Bagel, you want to promote your best qualities that draw in suitable companions. Do you enjoy hiking and outdoorsy activities? The botanical or rose gardens of Berkeley, or the fire trails may offer the perfect backdrop for your profile photo. Are you studious and focused hard on your education and degree? Students of UC Berkeley will find that there are dozens of gorgeous spots on campus to take profile photos.
Whether for a personal or professional profile, it’s important to think about how you want to promote YOU. Embrace the latest definition of profile pictures, and be sure to make your photo uniquely yours.
