Email Your Photo:

  1. Send at least 2 (two) clear, in-focus, profile (side-view) photos by email. See image below image for hints.

  2. Profiles facing right are preferred.

  3. Send additional photos if possible. The more photos, the better chance to get a correct image.

  4. Photos should be ‘mid-chest’ to ‘top of head’ – your photos should not cut off top of the head or back of head.

  5. No smile if possible: straight face with closed lips.

  6. Try to show a neutral background, preferably in a light color… or contrast to the hair.

  7. Tip for a great portrait: if you are a woman or a girl, put your hair up or back. Ponytails, buns, or braids look exceptional in silhouettes; long, loose hair does not look as classically beautiful as these styles.
