First attempt at a self portrait/headshot

Hi there!

My names Alex and im a photographer and videographer for a company called wilderness reserve.

The other day I decided I need a new professional picture of myself so I tried my hand at a self portrait, this is the first time I've ever tried anything like this so feedback would be great!

I like the second photograph better for the purpose you mentioned because the colors are warmer and it appears more natural. Good job at getting photos of yourself. My profile picture is also a self portrait and I struggled with the timer :D

To my eye the color balance has a yellow cast, the whites are too low, and the framing and look is one for a passport.
It does not transmit something from your personality to me and that it is what a good portrait should do.
A look into your soul.
