PHOTOGRAPHY GUIDELINES

Is a professional head shot needed? While a professional senior photo would be ideal, you do not have to hire a professional to take your photo. We do ask you to take a photo which represents a respectable image of yourself. Whether you hire a professional or you snap your own photo with your smartphone keep these things in mind.

Make it natural. Make sure your pose and expression are not awkward or forced. People can spot a fake smile, so make it sincere.

Dress the part. In general, neutral or darker toned clothes are a safe bet because these colors won’t take any attention away from your face. Avoid any styling that is distracting.

Lighting, setting, and position. Natural light is great. Set yourself in front of a solid wall or backdrop and face directly towards the source of light. Since a selfie arm length is limiting, it would be best to ask a friend, a family member or school teacher to take your photo.

ACCEPTABLE PHOTO EXAMPLES
Example head shot of a man.
