  • A full head and body shot (to your hips, so that we can crop the image if required)
  • You should be standing upright and not be leaning*
  • Ideally you should be facing at a slight angle (not directly straight on to the camera)
  • The focus should be on you, with the background slightly unfocused

*If you aren’t able to stand, you can of course be sitting.

Below are some example profile photos.
