Tips from HR decision-makers

We photograph your application photos with a lot of experience, because many of our customers are Personnel decision-makerswho themselves attach great importance to their application photo. These recruiters have explained to us in many conversations exactly what is important. In fact, your application photo is your ticket to the interview.

Every HR department uses the application photo as a very important first impression of an applicant. If a photographer succeeds in capturing an applicant's personality in a positive way, a successful photo can cover up missing characteristics and open the door to a job interview.

My friends actually said the following: "Look at the photos, they show you as you really are"

And indeed, in the photos I see myself as I really am.

Quote from Hans-Dieter Thiel, recruitment agency and customer of our application photos
