The photo you upload to your profile should be a clear, well-lit headshot. Clients are more likely to click on your profile if you are smiling and look approachable.
It should also be a recent, good quality photo of you. We therefore recommend that you update your picture on at least a yearly basis. If you change hair style, for example, you may want to change your photo to one containing your new look. Clients are more likely to read your profile if they see you have a new picture.
Your profile photo should:
Make you look friendly and smiley
Have good lighting
Be in focus
Have a clear, uncluttered background
