Is it unprofessional to share (nsfw) photography on my personal site when searching for a job? [closed]

I have a personal site - myname.com. On this, I have links to my travel photography, boudoir photography, side projects, and interactive resume. I'm a software engineer. If you search for me in google, this pops up. I also link to the resume section (myname.com/resume) from my linkedin profile. (Note - I don't link to my photography, but that can be googled or they can just remove /resume to find it).

My fear is that - despite the style being "tasteful sexy" - some folks might see it as a bit offensive. It's basically a bunch of sexy women posing with lingerie.

For those of you in HR, leadership or hiring positions, would you see this as a red flag of some kind?

I've been a hiring manager for a long time. While I wouldn't personally see this as a red flag, I know some hiring managers that would.

Your fear ("some folks might see it as a bit offensive") is real. Some might indeed find it a bit offensive.

Unless the jobs you are pursuing are in the photography field, I'd suggest you remove references to your site from your resume and the resume section of LinkedIn.

Why risk it when there is no benefit?

what's your interest
