How to Take the Best Possible Headshot 


Please refer to these guidelines below to achieve a high-quality publicity headshot: 

  • Please use the most updated iPhone or Android device available. 
  • Stand against a clean white, or light colored, wall or background.  
  • Take the photo using portrait mode (or similar). 
  • Take the photo from at least 4 feet away.  Someone else should be taking this photo -no selfies! 
  • The photo should be from the waist up, to at least one inch above the head. 
  • Makeup and bright clothing can help to clarify a photo, especially when it is being shrunk for an ad.
