Tips on how to take a good profile picture

We want you to look your best on your profile picture as this is the first time potential clients see you. It is extremely important that it is a good one. Clients have the choice and first impressions do matter.

Ask someone else to take your photo - no selfies please

Use a neutral background – plain or brick wall, fence or simple greenery, will keep the focus on you

Use even lighting – if you are outdoors, find a nice shaded spot – direct sunlight can be unflattering. If indoors try and find a spot that is well-lit with natural lighting (from a window)

Dress smartly – pick clothing that contrasts with your chosen background

A head and shoulders shot is ideal for your profile picture

Avoid using filters

Look straight at the camera

Unless you have a beard or moustache clean-shaven is best

Smile!
