Profile photo versus logo versus illustration

I’m thinking of changing my logo to a photo as it seems I’m here to stay for a little while but I’m wondering if it’s a good thing/bad thing/indifferent thing.

I know our senses seem to tell us that personal photos are a good thing, but do we have any proof? Personally, I find it easier to identify logos than faces in a list of users and gigs which can’t be a bad thing when you’re in that list. I have what I think is a healthy wariness about putting my photo on the internet but if it makes for an improved, more personal relationship with my buyers then I can see it as something worth doing.

Now taking arguments for and against.

I just realised you don´t sell here anymore and have become a buyer. I am only saying this because I have seen you around in the forum and just now I took a look at your profile photo as your comment trigerred me to look at your profile picture more closely 🙂

I know… makes whiney noise … I don’t wanna, but I guess I’m going to do it now before I chicken out.

Since I changed to a photo from a logo I have only had one new message enquiring about ordering a gig. This could be a coincidence, after all it’s only been a day, but I’m not sure the photo is going to last.

I appreciate your support (honestly) but I’m amused because I’m lying down on my couch so that the wrinkles are hidden by gravity 🙂
As it happens I had an influx of enquiries overnight so I’m guessing it was a coincidence. The photo stays for now.
